We are thankful for surprises

We were at SAMs club the other day and they were selling bags of chocolate popcorn that were made by physically challenged individuals, it was yummy and proceeds went to help the same people who made them.  Today the kids chose two neighbors and left popcorn treats at their front door.

We are thankful for each other

This was a low key thanksgiving this year.  I love thanksgiving but really do hate being the only one cooking.  This year all the kids helped with their own special dish.  Viv and G helped me make pretzel turkeys. Viv made the cranberry sauce from scratch.  Cash made an awesome fruit punch with floating apple flowers.  Cannon made an incredible pecan pie.  Kai came up with his own version of fried apples.  G helped me with the Brussels sprouts.  The best part is they all at least ate the dish they made.  Such a fun day.

We are thankful for people who understand the challenges and strengths is Dyslexia!

Today we made cookies for Vivi's tutor at the Dyslexia Center of Utah.  She has been such a blessing to Viv.  Her tutor also has dyslexia and truly understands the challenges Viv faces.  She is also sweet and fun which makes two hours of tutoring a week something to look forward to instead of dread.
