Thanksgiving Tree

On Friday the boys and I made our annual Thanksgiving Tree. They went back and forth telling me all the things they were thankful for and I wrote them each on one of the tree's leaves and then let them hang the leaves on the tree. They were very enthusiastic about what they were thankful for this year and needed little prompting from me. In addition to all our family, including each other, our house, food etc. they were thankful for Daddy's Job, God, Jesus - who died on the cross for our sins (way to make mommy thankful that you know this truth!!), their school and teachers and of course the all important Pigs, Candy and Lightning McQueen :), just to name a few.

I couldn't be more thankful for these two precious gifts!! And the blessing of getting to spend my days with them both.

The mirror wasn't my most strategic placement for pictures but you get the idea.

I say this every year, but I LOVE this tradition and really need to start it up in the Brown house. I would have to include your name on one of my leaves! :-) Love you!
