Each night at dinner, everyone in the family has been writing something they are thankful for on a paper and hanging it on our "thankful tree." Mr. Independent (AKA Lucas) wants to do this totally on his own. Since no one is allowed to help him, he has been writing the only few words he knows how to spell all by himself. That is why our thankful tree has the following items scrawled in 4 year old handwriting: MAMA, CAT, and TACO.
