My wonderful DS and DH

My sometimes wonderful job

A great daycare provider who allows me to go to work day in and day out and not worry about DS

My iPad, which I don't know how I've lived without for so long!!!

A wonderful vacation which is still 10 months away but I'm so thankful that it's on the books, scheduled and I can start obsessing about every component of it!

Having a great boss who lets me take time off at the last minute without a hassle.

A daycare provider who understands when I ask her not to cash a check until next week.

My kids who I love more than life itself

Having a house to live in, clothes on my back, and food in the fridge.

We just finished up a fun kid/adult craft project over breakfast this morning and it ties into this exact question, so I'll share. Last week, I cut out a brown tree trunk and taped it up in the kitchen near the table. I then had the kids cut out leaves (in various fall colors) that were large enough to write a few words on.
Then, this morning, we taked about all the things we were thankful for as a family (good health, our home, food, our pets, our family members, etc.) and wrote each thing down on a leaf and taped it on the tree. Then I asked each of them to come up with 2-3 things that pertained only to them that they were thanksful for. They then added those things to leaves and put them on the tree. In the end it looks great, will be a great conversation piece for tomorrow's dinner and really got the kids thinking about Thanksgiving.

Oh and my items were: My iPad, Amazon.com and all the kids art work. I especially loved DD2's as well: the toothfairy, chocolate and her toy jet plane.
