family gratitudes

Tonight's Family Home Evening was about Gratitude and we talked about not only being thankful for things - but to live our lives in a way that reflects our gratitude. Then we talked about the things that we were grateful for and each made a list. I loved when Gabe said our closing prayer how he asked Heavenly Father to "help us to be more gratitude" and to "Have more thankful". We could all have more of those things huh?

Gabe is grateful for:
  1. books
  2. parrots
  3. Halloween shakers (he made a tamborine in preschool - and he specifically is grateful for HALLOWEEEN shakers)
  4. cups
  5. piggy banks
Hunter: (When we asked Hunter what he was thankful for Gabe answered, "He's thankful for all the same things I'm thankful for!" We also think Hunter is thankful for these things)
  1. spending time with Gabe
  2. songs
  3. books
  4. baths
  5. a mom & dad who clean up after his messes
  1. Joanna
  2. Gabe
  3. Hunter
  4. our home
  5. the gospel
  1. preschool
  2. warm beds
  3. pillows
  4. bodies
  5. hot baths
