(Yes, we're weird.) But why send a card at Thanksgiving? I love this holiday, and I'm trying to simplify Christmas. First let's talk about why I love Thanksgiving. Making time to stop and give thanks is a big deal. I keep teaching and re-teaching my kids to show gratitude. They've heard this line a dozen times: "Will you be grateful or greedy?" Can we be happy with what is , without always wanting more ? I talked about having a gratitude attitude over here and about our yearly Thanksgiving tradition over here . Each person thinks of things we're thankful for, and then we write them on paper leaves. I saved last year's poster, and this year we had to think of completely new leaves. Some of my favorites on this year's list: pumpkin bread, 2 hour church, a working desktop computer, choir, etc. I talked about fall in Texas over here but I have to add one more funny story. See the turkey hat Amber's wearing in the photo? Yesterday
These notes are for my younger sisters, neighbors and friends. Thanks for visiting!
