The Thankful Tree

Yes, yes…more thankful posts in December.  However, even typing that sentence sounds so funny!  What a reason we have in December to be thankful!  Pressing on towards thankfulness being a daily choice and modeled behavior…

However, as November is notorious (and I’m thankful for that!) to spur something inside of you to be thankful, we created a ‘Thankful Tree’ for us and abi.  To encourage a daily discussion of what we were thankful for, to display it publicly, and to engage in some good, artsy fun!

In its humble beginnings…

Starting to get real good and fancy!

The Application…

Oh, we had so much fun!  Some of the notables from Abi were:

  • Horseshoe Crabs
  • Baby Jesus
  • Spinning
  • Our baby
  • Really high swinging

It was often a beautiful time to recap our day and to laugh (one time Abi was in a mood and said that she wasn’t thankful for anything) – I’m planning on saving the leaves to reflect on next year, giving thanks for the bounty of 2010 and recalling precious memories.  Thankful for you, friends!
