Riley Laud may be in kindergarten, but she’s plenty old enough to know that diamonds are a girl’s best friend. In addition to her sister, diamonds placed second on Riley’s list of what she’s most grateful for this Thanksgiving.

Nine kids from Imagine School on Palmer Ranch, Emma E. Booker Elementary and Ashton Elementary School shared their Thanksgiving plans, their favorite — and most-despised — turkey-day foods and why they’re thankful.
