Give thanks to the Lord, call on his name;

    make known among the nations what he has done.
Sing to him, sing praise to him;
    tell of all his wonderful acts.
Glory in his holy name;
    let the hearts of those who seek the Lord rejoice.
Look to the Lord and his strength;
    seek his face always.
Psalm 105:1-4

Today I watched three Christmas movies, drank three cups of hot cocoa, and made three Christmas cards. And I read some in there too. Tonight Dad made homemade pizza and we watched Elf (the third Christmas movie).

Thanksgiving day we had a house full of family. The weather was beautiful. Absolutely beautiful. Three tables were filled with place settings. We had our new glasses set out, a floral, colorful table cloth, and a starched white one with a crochet covering in the middle. Our kitchen counters were laden with food. After we ate, we made crafts and in the evening we played Guesstures.

Here's a small list of some things that I am thankful for:

•The Bible
•My parents
•Addy (my little sister)
•My family (aunts, uncles, cousins, grandparents, etc.)
•Our house and living out in the country
•Pen-pals and letters
•Our church
•Living in a free country
•Journals and books
