We had our "Being Thankful" family home evening with the boys tonight. Lindsey told us a story about the importance of being thankful for the blessings we have. She tied-in the story of the 10 Lepers that the Savior healed and only one returned to say 'thank you.' For our activity we helped the boys make this awesome Winco Foods turkey, they had a blast!!! We stuffed the turkey with pages from an old phone book. The boys thought it was pretty awesome to tear and crumple page after page. They both helped color the turkey's head and feathers. I think they are ready for Thanksgiving!
The picture with the water is our version of "A River Runs Through It." The ditch in our backyard goes from empty to four feet deep over night when it rains. We thought it was a very telling picture of just how wet the Great Northwest can be.
