Thanksgiving '07

We had a great Thanksgiving this year.  We did things a little differently, having more of a lunch than dinner so that Andrew could spend time both at our house and with his dad's family that night.  For dinner we had Salmon, potatoes, green bean casserole, homemade egg nog, salad, french bread, bruschetta, apple pie, and pumpkin pie.

Our friend Heather came over to spend thanksgiving with us and in the afternoon Jen, Heather and Brianna got some beading time in.

When we were eating we went around the table and did a little exercise where everyone took a turn saying what they were thankful for this year.  One thing that struck me is that both of our kids said that they were thankful for being born, and after I thought about it I realized that they say that almost every year.  It's amazing and encouraging that they know this - that they're very lucky to be born and to be alive.  How wonderful to know that.
