I am Thankful For

By Jayson Knapp

I am thankful for Halloween because I like dressing as scary movie and video game characters. I am thankful for my family. We have so much fun. I am thankful for being a nerd so I can talk about nerd stuff. I am thankful for all my technology. When I get bored with my phone I play on another device.
