I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving holiday! I know we sure did. I loved starting new traditions this year and we will definitely be continuing them for years to come. One thing I especially love about these new traditions is that they can be used in any situation or circumstance and they can be adapted to your own family and resources. You don’t need money or time to share what you’re thankful for.
My daughter has really enjoyed doing her “thankful leaves” every day and she has been a great reminder to me and my husband to do ours. It was so neat to be able to hear what/who she was thankful for. Our thankful tree really filled up fast, even with just three people to add to it, and seeing it each day in our front room filled me with happiness.
Our Book of Thanks turned out even better than I had imagined. Everyone there was able to take a little bit of time throughout the day and write as few or as many words as they wanted about what they were thankful for. I really enjoyed looking through it at the end of the day and I know it will be a treasure now and in the years ahead. As I was putting it together, I decided to include the coloring pages my son, daughter and I did at the end of everything else. I think it will be fun to see how their coloring skills change over the years.
Did you do a Thankful Tree or Book of Thanks this year? What was your favorite part of your Thanksgiving celebration?
