Happy Thanksgiving!

Thursday, November 23, 2017

Over the last few weeks, each of the members of my family secretly wrote, on little strips of paper, all the things for which they are thankful and tossed them into a sweet, paper bag turkey Kaden made in our Sunday school class.  We read through them at breakfast this am, and I thought today would be the perfect time to share those entries here on my blog.  Please keep in mind that this is by no means an exhaustive list, and see if you can guess who might have written what.  In no particular order, we are thankful for...
