We put up our Christmas tree last Wednesday. The boys has been bugging me to put it up so we did it during thanksgiving break. We have 2 trees, upstairs and downstairs and the boys had so much fun hanging the ornaments.

God, you've brought
many blessings
home today,
hearts full of cheer,
children at play,
a turkey in the oven,
pies steaming hot,
the table laden--
there's nothing
you forgot.
You've brought
good friends near
and loved ones as well,
for smiles and hugs,
and news to tell.
And we gather together,
eager to share
beginning our feast
with a heartfelt prayer.
Like the pilgrims of old,
we thank you God,
for the gifts of the harvest
reaped from the sod.
We look around us
and for all the
blessings we see,
we bow our heads,
in gratitude to Thee.

We invited our friends Elsa and her daughter Janelle to join us on our thanksgiving feast. We had a great Thanksgiving last Thursday. Heavenly Father has blessed us tremendously and there's so many things we're thankful for!

Andrew had some activity on his school before his thanksgiving break and he always wanted to share with Aaron whatever he did at school.

It’s tough to be a turkey
Who’s plain old boring brown.
Please count your many blessings
And turn my life around.
A feather for each blessing
Will make a brighter me.
And every color will reveal
How grateful you can be.

We did this activity on our family home evening last Monday!

I caught Aaron writing at Andrew's face using a dry erase marker. They both thought that was so fun!
