I’m Thankful For…

For the month of November, I tried to teach James what it means to be thankful.  We talked about the meaning, I pointed out things I am thankful for, and we read books about being thankful.  I often asked James what he is thankful for, and I couldn’t help but take note.


Peanut Butter


Lynyrd and my turtle



Outside, the wind, and the sun

My Christmas tree


The zoo

The country

Daddy and booboos

M&Ms, Daddy and Grandpa

Daddy was his most popular response.  I’d say “The Country” was the most surprising.  James, I’m also thankful for Daddy.


Our first turkey.

And I am so thankful for you, James.

If you have seen the Elf on the Shelf movie, An Elf Story, then you probably know the Extravaganzalorious song.  Well, James has had the movie for a week and is already on his way to Broadway.  It is so hard not to burst out laughing when he tries to do this choreographed dance.  And although he is extremely athletic, he also loves music and clearly loves to dance.
