I know, I'm a little late, but technically Thanksgiving weekend isn't over! I didn't want this time of thankfulness to pass by without me acknowledging the many blessings I have in my life.
This is our "thankful tree". We wrote down the things that we're thankful for in our lives on colored paper leaves and hung them on the tree. It was fun to see what the kids had to say and I think it's important for them to think about the blessings that they have in their lives especially right now during the holiday season when all that they see on tv is how important materialistic things are.
Ok, moving on and stepping off my soap box....

We got to enjoy food, family and fun twice in one week!
And tomorrow is the beginning of the whirlwind that is December! Our kids can't wait to put the Christmas tree up and we're listening to our Christmas music!
It's the most wonderful time of the year! :)
