Now Zac and I have a tradition, or maybe I should call it a deal. He knows I love Christmas music. He found this out the first year we were married when I started to listen to it way back in September - thus a deal was struck. I promised not to start listening to Christmas music until the day after Thanksgiving and then I could listen to as much as I want, whenever I want. (I did start a bit sooner this year...Josh Groban finally came out with a Christmas CD and I couldn't wait. Each year I try to add to my collection. This year so far I have the new Josh Groban "Noel" and Sarah McLachlan's "Wintersong" and I have on my list to buy Michael Buble's "Let is Snow".
So the day after Thanksgiving I filled our CD player with Christmas music and we started on our second after Thanksgiving tradition. The setting up of the Christmas Tree. This I love...the music, the cinnamon apple candles burning, the lights twinkling. Next to Christmas day this is my favorite.
We had a fun FHE tonight. We talked about the Thanksgiving story then we all took turns saying what we are grateful for. I get this idea from you Dad. Let see...some of the things the Turner family is thankful for this year: Family.Our Home.The Church.Wonderful Children.Knees.Shoulders.Star Wars.The Book of Mormon.School.Clothes.Grass.Trees.Flowers.Smiles.Yummy Food.Air Planes.Jets.Trains.Railroad Tracks.Music.Our Bodies.
We all know the list could go on and on but there are a few off our thankful list.
