We are Thankful...or not?


Tonight for FHE,
we had our lesson on being Thankful for our many blessings!

I put up our Thankful Tree and I told the kids that they could list their blessings on a sheet of paper and than
we would put them on leaves to place on the tree.

I was really happy with what they listed.




Gotta love that Parker wrote he is thankful for Slurpees - he has been going to 7/11 a lot lately!

After the lesson was over, the kids were looking through a bunch of ads and magazines that I got in the mail. Maddie found an electric scooter and she told me that they would like it for Christmas! I said, "Well, for $200 - I don't know about that!" Bailey than chimed in, "Maddie don't ask Mom - Just go straight to Santa!" So much for being thankful for what we already have!
