The Simple Things

One of the nice things about having a six year old is that you've had enough years to turn repetition into tradition. This Thanksgiving morning the kids woke up all excited, knowing there were pumpkin cinnamon rolls baking and soon we'd sit around the table, gobbling down rolls and making our big thankfulness poster. This year we drew a row of handprint turkeys across the bottom and filled the rest with all sorts of people and things for which we're grateful.

This probably crosses into only-the-parents-find-it-amusing-please-put-away-that-seventieth-picture-of-the-baby territory, but I wanted to capture some of what Eddie and Marian contributed. I love hearing about the tiny things that make them happy.
  • Building Legos
  • Gourds
  • Blankie
  • My stuffed animals
  • Rubber bands
  • Chairs and rugs
  • Fire
  • Nativity set
  • My pants
  • Rice
  • Toy story undies
  • Target
  • Lollipops
  • Library
  • Outside
  • Glue
  • A blue sweatshirt
  • Colors
Whether this was Thanksgiving for you or just another Thursday, I hope there was something that made you happy in it. Your pants, perhaps? Gourds? Rubber bands?
