Happy Thanksgiving to everyone! Sometimes I feel sorry for Thanksgiving because it tends to kind of get lost in between Halloween and Christmas, but what a great holiday! Family, food, breaks from work and school, food, dessert, movies, food, and mostly, remembering how blessed we are.

Just for fun, here’s a few things I’m grateful for this Thanksgiving:

  • My husband and son
  • My family and my husband’s family (all of whom we get to see this Thanksgiving – whoopee! It’s gonna be a party!)
  • Chocolate chip pumpkin pie cookies
  • New things to learn
  • Microwave popcorn
  • The TV show The West Wing
  • Kind friends who give good advice
  • Smiles

  1. We used this list and the easy words list tonight with our kids and extended family. So much fun. It was nice that we could all participate, since none of us had seen the words.

    Thanks for all your work putting these together and posting them.
