This is our Thankful Tree. Each day in November, the kids got to add one "leaf" to the tree with something they were thanful for. I have a special gratitude album that we will add to each year with a family picture, the kids' leaves, and a letter about the blessings from our year. This year, they were thankful for:
ice cream, pumpkins, Mommy and Daddy, soup, rice and beans, books, apples, Nana and Papa, princesses, M (cousin), Bug is better, C & C (friends), sweetie treats, Grandma and PaPa, cheese (which Bug repeated about 10 days!), love, and Buzz Lighyear
I treasure the simplicity of the things they love and are thanful for. As usual, I learned a lot from my attempt to teach them about thanfulness.
