Giving Thanks


November is a month of gratitude. A month of appreciating others in our lives and giving thanks for what we have. Each day for the past couple of weeks, Finn and I have been writing down what we are thankful for and hanging it from our seasonal tree. While I have been thankful for things like my family and friends, food to eat, and a warm home, Finn has been more appreciative of the things that make him happy in the moment, like puzzles and ice cream. And, I must say, those things are pretty good too.
We also made our yearly hand-print turkeys and Phoebe was ecstatic to be participating. I can't believe that Thanksgiving is only a few days away and that we are nearing the end of 2012!
Have you done any fun Thanksgiving crafts?
