Our Thanks and Giving Tree…
So Many Reasons to be Thankful!
This year, for the month of November and in the spirit of Thanksgiving, I decided to make a Thanks and Giving Tree. I wanted to show the children just a few of the things out of the many that we had in our lives to be so very thankful for. I started with a simple five dollar kit from Target. I glued it together and painted it all matte black to make it a little fancier than the pressed cardboard it started out to be. Also, the kit came with only twenty leaves, and I wanted more than that, so I took one of the leaves and some matching scrapbook paper and traced the leaf and made more leaves to use on my Thanks and Giving Tree.
Some of my favorites from the Thanks and Giving Tree…
- Being married to my best friend and soulmate
- Having friends, real, and imaginary
- Mommy and Daddy
- Grandma’s and Grandpa’s
- Hugs and Kisses
- Sunshine ae Beach Days
- Quality time with my loves
