Our Thankful Tree


















Once we turned the calendar to November, we began our thankful tree. I love watching it grow. I love what my kids say. I love that they don't try to impress anyone with their ideas--like a Miss America pageant contestant hoping for world peace. My kids are thankful for things that are close to them and make them feel good. Like dogs and snowboarding and... bread. Not bread in the I'm-thankful-we-have-food-to-eat sense. But bread in the I-love-carbohydrates-and-things-slathered-in-honey-and-butter sense. Very real.

Your leaves are so pretty...next year we just might have to get a leaf stencil. Love it! (I got the thankful tree from your post last year...thanks!)

I am SO going to make a thankful tree (next year. it's too late to do it justice.)

Thanks for this idea!
