We are thankful!

We've been using this board in our kitchen as a Prayer Board, where we write people & things we want to keep in our prayers.  For the month of Thanksgiving, we transitioned it into a "Thankful Board."  Can't say we kept up with it 100%, but we sure tried!  Most of Ellie's were drawings, and most of her explanations were that they were Rapunzel.  We didn't realize she was quite so thankful for her, but oh well! 

Here's what we wrote for our Thankful Board:
*I am thankful that Daddy made it to Australia safely. -Gracie (11/1)
*I am thankful for everything that I have! -Katie (11/1)
*I am thankful that Daddy has been safe so far & has been able to call, text, & email us!  -Mommy (11/1)
*I am thankful that we are allowed to read the bible.  -Gracie (11/2)
