Today during our Thanksgiving Study time we made our Thankful Lists for this year. I asked the kids first of all what things they thought the pilgrims had thanked the Lord for those many years ago and we brainstormed for a bit. Then I got out paper and asked them what they say "Thank you" to the Lord for. These lists were written just as they spouted them off. Ezra's list is in the order he gave me without any prompts.

Ezra's 2009 Thankful List
1. Toys
2. Mommy & Daddy
3. Furniture
4. Warm house
5. Tool shed
6. That we're having a Baby
7. Cute flowers
8. I love the Lord Jesus
9. Food to eat
10. Fruit growing in trees
11. Playing with my sister
12. Playing with my Baby
13. Apples, food, fruit

Caroline's list was mostly her own and in the order she dictated it. A couple items she had to be coaxed/led/prompted into adding.

Caroline's 2009 Thankful List
1. God
2. Baby
3. Horsies
4. Food
5. Pancakes
6. Bread (suggested by Ezra)
7. Daddy & Mommy (a little coaxing by mommy)
8. healthy stuff
9. Ezra (prompted by mommy)

These are so easy and fun to do with the kids. I have a thankful list done by Ezra every year for the past three Thanksgivings. They will be fun to add to his scrapbooks and look back on as the years pass. And here are a couple fall pictures of the thankful little munchkins themselves.

I love Caroline's little tan jacket thing :) She is beautiful :) I can hardly wait to see what the 3rd child looks like/what personality they have :) Aunt Ginger said your kids sit without a peep in meeting now and we all go, what?!
