When Thanksgiving is coming, I am always thankful for anything.
What I am thankful about is all the gifts I get from Christmas and my birthday. Almost everyone in my family gathers to my house, has a great celebration and gives thanks.
When everybody in my family gathers, even friends, we give thanks to each other and not only one person. Also, when we do all the things, we have a party.
Everybody in my house plays games, talks, has a great meal and just a great time at the party. This is how me and my family give thanks on Thanksgiving.

I am thankful for my mom, my dad, my brother and my dog. When I am sick my mom takes care of me. Sometimes when I am feeling blue my dad buys me ice cream. When I am bored my dog gets so hyper I have to play with him. The best thing is my brother when I don't know what to draw for my spelling on my homework he helps me. And at night, that is when my family and I get together, and my mom cooks a great meal. And that is what I am thankful for.
