The birth of a tradition...

We have a lot to be thankful for.
A new traditions was born in our home this evening, and it was so well received that I am hoping that we will repeat it every year.

The started with The Big Apple, and her big ideas that everyone in our family should make a big list of everything that we are thankful for, and post it on the wall. (Unable to find an empty wall in our house, we had to confine this idea to the backside of the back door!)So we got some paper leaves, of the bulletin board variety, and got busy. 11 leaves per member of the family tonight, one for every day of the month that we have missed so far, and at least one more a day for the remainder of the month. Once they got started writing, the ideas kept flowing. My family and I were filled with beautiful things that we are thankful for.....some were interesting and humorous entries,, China, Santa, Yellow Elephant, and naptime....
...and entries that make you Love, health, and friends.

We have a lot to be thankful for at our house.

What are you thankful for?
