I hope you are all feasting away today with family and friends, and enjoying life’s many blessings! Fill your tummies with good food and your hearts with happiness. :)
M wanted to place our leaves on the tree with our lists facing outwards, which made me wonder, why did we bother decorating them? ;) But the littlest person usually gets their way about this type of thing, so this year we have white leaves on our tree.
Each night for the past week we’ve written things for which we are thankful on leaves, and then tacked them to the tree.
I thought you might enjoy M’s top 7 things he is thankful for this year:
- Our house
- Our farm and apple trees
- Cupcakes, and Mommy, and Cake
- Fish and Fishing for Fish (he has never gone fishing, by the way, but why get hung up on details?)
There is a glaring omission here, isn’t there? ;) Why did Mommy end up on the list two times (and what is the “Mommy” in between cupcakes and cake all about??), but no mention of Daddy? I giggle about this, mainly because I am not Daddy. I’m sure the thought of Daddy was in there somewhere. I think next year perhaps we will list our thanks for two weeks – to give us time to make sure everything is covered, and no feelings are hurt.
Just for the record, I did put Daddy on the very first of my leaves, and he is very loved.
Now, I’m off to stake out a place for my post-dinner nap. ;)
