Kelsey's Gratitude ~ Bretts Love

The day before Thanksgiving, I asked niece Kelsey to start thinking about a list of 5 things she is most grateful or thankful for. Her response was, "That's it? Can I expand on that?"......
Once again, mama Mary's kids melt my heart!

Thanksgiving Day, Kelsey calls me up and says "Hey Aunt Jeni! I've got 40 things so far on my gratitude list! I could keep going, but it would take days to finish. LOL.... My grateful lil niece! How did she turn out so smart, so loving, so sweet, so funny...?? Oh yeah, she's my sisters kid!!

Here are the first 40 items of love in Kelsey's heart (she said it was absolutely in no way any special order!):

1. Being a Christian 2. Family (this includes everyone!) 3. Friends 4. Relationship with Jesus 5. Home 6. Food 7. Own Room 8. Grandparents 9. Aunt Jeni & Uncle Chad 10.Wardrobe 11. shoes 12. Good Grades 13. School 14. track 15. Nice people 16. Mean People 17. Challenges I've overcome 18. Lady Gaga 19. Drake 20. nail polish 21. good health 22. ipod's 23. music 24. TV 25. YouTube 26. Waterparks 27. Anything that entertains Kelsey 28. Jewish people ~ bagels 29. Eco Friendly People 30. Beaches 31. brother 32. Food 33. FAMILY (again) 34. Italian food 35. Great actors 36. dogs nice to me 37. counselor 38. People who invented anklets 39. People who invented scarves 40. Jesus Loving Me

I most certainly don't want to leave Brett out ~ I never could. I speak to him often too, but alot of times he's busy playing. He did call me the other day just to say: "Hi Aunt Jeni, I wanted to talk to you because its been a while and wanted to see how you are doing and say I love you. Oh and by the way, I got all A's on my report card again" hehe.... so, of course I go on to congratulate him and tell him how proud I am of him. Then comes the question I believe he was waiting for: "So Brett... what can we get you to reward you for your wonderful grades?" MADDEN 11 for XBOX it is :)
