Thankful Tree Complete
We put the final leaves on our Thankful Tree tonight. We missed a day here and there but for the most part we put leaves on our tree every night. Caleb was quick to remind me if I forgot. I'm really glad we did this activity with the boys. It was so much fun to hear the things they were thankful for each day. Caleb gave his thanks a lot of thought, Benjamin would usually say "Mommy" or "Legos"...we had to help him think of other things to be thankful for.
Here are some of the things Caleb was thankful for this past month:
Relief cream (this was after I rubbed ointment on a small scratch on his arm)
Today (I love that he was thankful for "today")
Tomorrow (yep, he's thankful for "tomorrow" too)
Banana Cake (it was pretty good cake)
The Advent Box (we start that tomorrow)
Here are some of the things Benjamin was thankful for this past month:
Bike (he is convinced he is getting one for his birthday/Christmas...he's right)
Toy Dr. Kit
Birthday (which hasn't happened yet, it's on December 21)
I definitely think this will be something we do every year. It's refreshing to reflect on your day and give thought to the things that you are thankful for. We must have a lot to be thankful for because our tree was full of leaves by the end of the month.
