November’s Thankful Things

Way back in November, for the whole month, we sit down at dinner and list off the things we are thankful for. We try to get a new one each day and try to even write them down for each day. Sometimes we have to play catch up for a few days, and sometimes we let small children fudge with the ‘no repeats’ rule. It’s always a joy to hear what they have to say to be thankful for. This year almost every day Celia said she was thankful for a ‘healthy baby Ewan.’ He certainly is the biggest change we’ve had this year. We also had a bad stomach bug this month so it reminded us all to be well thankful for our health! And those around us! Here’s their lists.
