Life is so crazy right now with school, health issues, and work. Even though it can be a little tough, we still found time this month to do our Tom the Turkey tradition of saying things we're grateful for. Since Mal started saying some words, most of his grateful things are what he said-- we just interpreted... mostly. :)
