One of our most loved 🍁Thanksgiving family traditions….the Thankful Tree.
Its taken on many different shapes, sizes and variations through the years, but we always have one!
This year, I knew I was just not going to be able to keep up with a card or leaf everyday… so, it was the perfect activity for Thanksgiving Eve.
I sent the girls out to collect branches, filled a mason jar with some clear stones, traced and cut out some leaves, used a little twine, and the tree is up.
I‘m loving the simplicity of it this year.🍂
I keep the leaves or cards the girls each write, every year, and they become treasures. (This year, we have some from Grandma and Grandpa too.) Their handwriting and their “story” from that year.
Traditions create memories and bind a family together.
