Thanksgiving, What are you Thankful for???

Well, It's beginning to feel like the holidays around here. Finally we have a cool breeze in the air and the sky is clear. I love this time of the year. It just feels good the break out the boots and sweaters.
So I was talking to my 2 year old Miss B, and we were talking about being thankful. I know, a 2 year old and thanksfulness??? well,  you know :-) I was telling her that I was Thankfu to God for her and her daddy and our family as a whole. She said "I tankful fa mine toyees, and milk and mommie" I melted then proceeded to make hand turkeys and later I made some cranberry muffins.
