The boys' gratitude list

I need to blog but I can't seem to reign in my thoughts. Travis and I just got back from Monterey and I want to share about that trip but it will have to be at another time. I recently read a blog about a mother who gave her sons a journal and had them start their grateful list. I thought that was a wonderful idea so the boys started their list today and I wanted to share it. With the rate they are going, they will reach 1000 before I do. Most of these were thought of by Sawyer but Hudson threw in a couple too.

1. Godzilla
2. Ya Ya (Mollie)
3. Aunt Megs (this was Hudson)
4. Soccer pillow
5. Chocolate Cheerios
6. Screw driver
7. Lighter (also Hudson)
8. New easel
9. Books
10. Scissors
11. Stuffed Cat in the Hat and dinosaur
12. Gummy medicine
13. Prunes
14. Mommy
15. Go Dino
16. Bubbles
17. Jesus

I did not help them with this list. I do however like that I am below Godzilla but above Go Dino. Two of their favorite shows. I do also love that they look around the room to find things they are thankful for. "I love lamp." And it melts my heart that Jesus is on their list. It is lower on the list than Jesus himself would appreciate but we are all a work in progress.
