I forgot to tell you about this tradition we do every year.
The matriarch (Grandma) passes out three little pieces of un-popped popcorn to each person. Then a jar is passed around, each peep drops their popcorn in as they say what they're thankful for.
My kids answers this year:
Gary--Family, Emmy & Lilly, a house and basketball
Emmy--My family, my school, and my friends
Lilly--My family, my food and Disneyland.
Personally, I think Lilly's rocks the socks! Not only does she love the happiest place on earth, she is so going to the beat of her own drum. My three year old is the most independent thinker in the fam. Good or no so good? you decide ;)
Theeeeen, on Sunday for the Birthday girl...
Lilly had told Emmy she'd get her a present, a specific one in fact...luckily, I found out and picked up a littlest pet shop set (that stuff is not cheap!).
Gary helped Lilly wrap it (they have some mad wrapping skillz)...Lilly ran out yelling, "Emmy I got you a..."
luckily Gary can run fast too and caught her before she could tell...granted, Lilly proceeded to whisper the upcoming present continually. It was quite entertaining!
So thankful for the little things.
Today is Gary's first basketball game--hooray! Go Falcons!
