Thanksgiving 2017

by Kristen DeLap


The best holiday of the year has arrived.  This year is the first for me hosting in our home, and while the guest list was short, I'm so grateful we could gather together.

We try to cultivate gratitude everyday of the year, especially for our sons, but is is great to have a specific day to express our thanks.  My tradition is to have each person at the table write a physical list (on my handlettered form, of course.) It was great to see what my 5 year old came up with all on his own. 

 Note: Søren means a new book about Halo he picked up at the school book fair; he's never actually seen the game.

I am truly thankful I was able to prepare this special meal for my family. I hope that hosting this day of gratitude can become a tradition in my home.
