Thankful Turkey 2015

Ten years of turkeys! I am amazed at how one little FHE lesson turned into ten years of turkeys on our wall. I love it. The girls love to reread all the feathers on each turkey. Even I was caught many times staring at the wall and remembering how each turkey was put together and who helped.

This year it was June's turn to help with the turkey, but she is old enough that I let her do it all herself. She found a design and made it her own. We had a great time last night filling out our feathers with all the things for which we are, indeed, grateful.

Grandma Cazier is here visiting, so she got to make a feather as well. I love that our turkeys have guest appearances. We have the Mack's who started it all in 2006. We have the Dargan's in 2012. The Houck's (and Buckwheat) in 2013. And now Grandma Cazier in 2015.

Here is June with the finished turkey. (I love the pilgrim hat.)

Let's take a closer look. I usually take a picture pre-laminate, but not this time. And yes, I know Mom, it isn't close enough to read the feathers. You have to come to our place to enjoy the whole shebang.

Our wall is nice and full with our turkeys. We don't have a lot of Thanksgiving traditions around here, besides eating a feast on Thursday, but this is one aspect of Thanksgiving that I really look forward to.

Gobble, gobble.

I hope this is a tradition that your kids will carry on with their families when they grow up, get married, and have kids of their own. An attitude of gratitude! (Is gratitude what they talked about in church last Sunday in your ward? They did in ours!)
