Happy Thanksgiving!!

I asked this kids this morning what they were each thankful for. Their answers show that either I'm not doing as badly as I thought with them, or that they've been brainwashed well enough to give the "right" answers.

Stephen-my family, that I get to see my family today, my home, that we have food to eat, that God is here.....that's it!

Zachary-you, that's it. (I tried to pry more out of him, but I think there was a glass of milk, a vitamin and a TV show calling his name. I asked him if he was thankful for anything else and he said, "Nope. I just like you." And then he ran into the other room.)

Marc-Adam-here's our conversation:
Me: what are you thankful for, Marc-Adam?
M-A: Dahbee.
Me: What are you thankful for?
M-A: huh?
Me: What are you thankful for?
M-A: uhhhhhh....baby?
Me: Baby?
M-A: uh-huh.
(Stephen, from the other room: it's a racing car!)
M-A (bolting from my lap and running to where Stephen is): Truck!

And I have to add one more thing that I'm thankful for: I'm thankful for the first sweet little nudges and flutters that our newest little turkey is giving me. It's like Baby is making sure that I remember that I have one more blessing to be thankful for.
