I am thankful for these two guys and I cherish every moment with them. There is so much to be thankful for, but at the end of the day it's my time with my kids that brings me the most joy. - Allison

I'm thankful for the amazing photos of Jupiter being sent back to us by the Juno probe. To think that this gigantic world encompasses many earths, and contains endless storms, clouds, and whirlwinds that we will never know... it blows my mind, and excites my imagination. Also, shout out to Enceladus, whose global subterranean ocean was only recently discovered, and may be one of our best bets for nearby alien life...   - Nick

This year, I'm particularly thankful for physical health. I started the year by rupturing my achilles tendon and have spent the rest of the year gradually recovering from surgery. The process has made me more aware of my aging body and what I need to do to take care of it. But by being patient and persistent, I was able to take my kid hiking in Bryce Canyon in the summer. It was physically painful at times but memories of the experience are more than worth it.  -Judah

I’m thankful for getting to share every single day with my other 67.5% (we negotiated this figure), and our two highly spoiled cats. Getting to wake up every day, write code, play drums, and hang out with the love of my life… there’s a lot to be grateful for!  Happy Thanksgiving from your friends north of the border - Andrew

This year I️ am grateful to have joined the ranks of motherhood. For getting well-acquainted with 3 a.m. For an aching back and a messy house. For buck-toothed smiles. For giggles and peekaboo. For those first unstable steps and cuddles reserved only for mommy. I️ love you more than you can comprehend, Dottie! - Kristin
