We're Thankful for Glue

This evening we hunkered down with extended family and a turkey that weighed as much as Firefly. Because we are dorks, we talked about that coincidence at length.

Earlier in the day, the four of us worked on an art project together: a family of hand turkeys carefully decorated by Puppy, with a cloud of things we love written out above their heads. This was the list of what our family is thankful for this year. I'll leave you to guess which ones were contributed by the three-year old:
  • playgroup
  • family
  • dinners with Grandma and Grandpa
  • coaching
  • the library
  • fall leaves
  • Firefly being born
  • U-pick fruit
  • God's love
  • curly hair
  • glue
  • friends
  • football
  • the truck
  • the car
  • bike riding
  • our home
  • Saturday pancakes
  • ice cream
  • turkey
  • music
  • popcorn
  • health care
  • wrapped-up books
  • Obama winning
  • our new oven
I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving (or a splendid Thursday, for those outside the U.S.)!

Great list.

When I was picking out my small turkey I couldn't help but think that it was about the size of a newborn baby.

@wiseguy - Hee, a lot of those were actually my husband's. And playgroup was actually mine--never underestimate the value of adult interaction in the middle of a day tending to children. :)
