Me:  So, tomorrow is Thanksgiving.  It's a day when we appreciate the things we're thankful for.  And we are thankful for the things we love.
Molly:  Like family?!
Me:  Yes, exactly like family.  So what are you thankful for?
Molly:  Family!
Me:  Awww, that's very sweet.  That's a great thing to be thankful for.  Are you thankful for anything else?
