So Thankful




This week Aubrey and I have been talking about Thanksgiving and I saw this idea in a magazine. I thought that it would be a great way to remind us through Thanksgiving how many things we have to be thankful for. So Aubrey and I got out the paper, paint, scissors, markers and crayons and went to town. He really wanted to have a squirrel, so we printed one out and he colored it. He also thought we needed some grass, so he was in charge of it. Anyway, our list of course includes our family and friends, God's love and also pumpkins, trees, Aubrey's four-wheeler, etc. I love how Aubrey is so literal about what he loves. He can make a list that noone else would think about. That's how he prays too. So sweet and I know God loves it. I am hoping to make this a yearly tradition. We can't be thankful too much, you know?!
