First place

Hello! My name is Avery S. I am thankful for my family, most of all. I am thankful for my family because they are all so loving and caring.

My dad is hilarious. He always makes me happy when I'm sad. He is also very smart. He helps me with my homework when I don't understand it. My dad plays video games with me. He plays sports outside with me. He sits across from me as we hang out on our two computers. At night time he comes in my room, closes my window, gives me a little kiss and leaves. My dad is funny, smart, caring, protective and mine. I love my dad!

My mom is incredibly loving. She always makes time to go out to lunch with me. She is very involved with my school and my hobbies. She helps me calm down when I don't know what I should do. She is very caring and always tried to make her family happy. She is an awesome vacation planner. My mom is very smart, too, and helps me with academic things when my dad is doing something else. She is always caring, loving, happy, smart, beautiful and amazing. I love my mom!

My sister has the best expressions. She is always making funny faces at everybody. We have so much fun playing games together. She might be annoying sometimes, but you've got to love her. Though we have many differences, I couldn't live without that timid but crazy little sister. She is a great friend and an awesome playmate. I love my sister!

My little brother is the baby of the family. Though he is only four years old, he still is held by my mom and dad and sleeps in their bed. He is very cute. I just want to give him a billion hugs and kisses. His body is always warm when I touch him and he always acts just like a boy. He'll hit me, punch me, throw things at me, but it's only because he's your average boy. He plays video games. He's great at sports and he's all mine. I love my brother!

In conclusion, I am thankful for my family because of who they are and what they do for me.

I love my family!

Second place

I am thankful for good parents. They give me lots of love, support and they give me a good example.

When they get mad at me it's because they want me to be on the right track. I am thankful for honest, trustful friends. They would stick by my side and would support me. I can rely on them to tell secrets. We have these things in common that we are very proud of. These are the things I am very thankful for.

Third place

I am thankful for my school, family and shelter. Everything listed above has made my life complete. They have changed my life in a special way. I am thankful for my family because they've provided food, water and shelter for me. I am thankful for shelter because without it, I would be cold and wet. I am thankful for friends because without them I would be alone and nobody would be there to help me through rough times at school.

I am thankful for my dog and cat because they are now both happy in heaven. They are eating biscuits and fish and chasing butterflies in the great big field with lots of flowers. They are happy in heaven because they live in big houses with great angels that scratch them behind their ears. I am thankful for my dog and my cat.

I am thankful for my own room. If I shared a room, it would be messy because my sister doesn't clean up. It would be too crowded and I couldn't concentrate on my homework. I would be able to ever be alone and talk to friends privately. That's why I'm thankful for my own room.

The thing I'm most grateful for is my family. I'm grateful because I have a great family that is really nice and caring. They give me video games and movies. They give me shelter and food. I have two brothers, two sisters, a mom and a dad in my family. Their names are Bryan, Heidi, Adam and Aimee, and my mom's name is Jodi and my dad's name is John. They all give me gifts and are generous. They are always at my birthday and at celebrations like Christmas, Halloween, Thanksgiving and Hanukkah.

They always say they love me and give me hugs and kisses. They also say they love me to death. My opinion is that they are the nicest family in the world. They let me go on hikes behind my house, bike rides with friends, go on plane trips to New York, Paris, Hawaii, San Francisco, Cancun and more.

They got me a BB gun, and my brother Adam gave me a paintball gun and said I could get a pellet rifle for my birthday. He also built me and my sister a go-cart that goes 30 miles per hour. He can also take a car engine apart and then put it back together all by himself. He also used to race motorcycles.

My dad taught me how to play baseball. He played in high school and college baseball. He always coaches my teams. This year my team is the Pirates. I think he is a really good coach because my team almost always wins a lot of games.

That is my family.

I am thankful for my family and friends. I am thankful for my parents for loving and caring. I am thankful for my siblings because they're always there for me. I am also thankful for my friends because at school they are there for me when my siblings aren't there and cheer me up when I'm sad. Those two things are the most important things that I am thankful for.
