The Best Gratitude List Ever

With Thanksgiving comes the official start of the holidays, and there is oh so much we can all say about that. However, I can assure you that anything I have to say about thankfulness is not nearly as amazing as what our kids have to say about it. So with that, I will turn the blog over to them.  I asked the kids to lay it out for me: What are you thankful for? Like a big happy sticky wave of gratitude, I was almost physically laid out as the kids rushed to tell me all the things they are thankful for. And that almost says it all… ALMOST:

What are you thankful for? 

Sterling 4: Seeing the biggest rainbow ever.
Jack 4: I am thankful my mom got me new footie pajamas.
