Thanksgiving Tree


We completed our Thanksgiving Tree this weekend and I'm not going to lie it isn't exactly what I envisioned when we started, but I love it. In addition to God, Jesus, our house, food, clothes and all of our family, who Stacey named individually and wanted to clarify that Ryan was his cousin and his friend (so sweet), he is thankful for: Bob and Jack (our dogs), Bob and Jack's food, Bob and Jack's paws (you see a theme here) the Keys?, Balls and his letter "K" bag from school.
He got a little distracted at one point and started just naming inanimate objects around the house (very Brick from Anchorman) that he is thankful for....chair, lamp, door etc. and while we are thankful for all of those things I tried to redirect just a little bit :)
