Happy Thanksgiving!

    Our company is gone and we are now watching Charlie Brown Thanksgiving together.  Oh wait Matthew didn't last he is sleeping on the couch wrapped in a fitted sheet! That's his latest thing, he wraps himself up in a flannel fitted sheet at night. Go figure:) Anyway before we started watching Charlie Brown we read 54 turkey feathers worth of "I'm thankful for."  
    I made a turkey body on November 1st. Daily we were suppose to write what we were thankful for on a feather. We forgot many days but still had lots to be thankful for! I also had visitors write on our feathers too. Like my Granny who is now 82. She was very sick this time last year and we thought she wouldn't be with us very long. She is now doing great and even flew in September!
    After everyone went home the four of us sat and took turns reading feathers. Some were everyday things like fuzzy socks and snakes others were health and brand new baby sisters (our neighbor Hunter).We laughed at some and had tears in our eyes for others. It was a blessing to have that time together as a family!
