Thanksgiving Recap

We had a wonderful Thanksgiving and were delighted that my parents could spend the Thanksgiving weekend with us! 

My favorite moment each Thanksgiving is going around the dining room table at the end of the meal, each person sharing three things they are thankful for...and depositing three corn kernels into a bowl that continues year after year to fill with gratitude.

This year, our family wrote things we were thankful for on these cards and hung them on a Thankful Tree...then I compiled the cards and tied them together...it will be special to look at these from year to year, seeing both the many blessings in our lives as well as seeing how our children's handwriting changes!

There were leaf crowns, gingerbread donuts, Packer football, Skype conversations from New York and South Korea, stories, amazing Pecan Pie, rocket launches, phone calls to family far away, and lots of yummy cooking!

What a precious gift to just be together on Thanksgiving.
