hmmmm.....someones missing.

We started the garland of gratitude 4 or 5 years ago. Every year we add something that we are grateful for. It is fun to see the ones that Ashlyn wrote when she was first learning to write and it is a nice reminder of what we have to be thankful for.

Ashlyn noticed that Acadia's name was not on the garland yet....oops! I know what I am adding to it this year!

I am thankful for reminders.

I like your garland. What a good idea!

What a great idea! LOVE IT, and I'm totally going to copy when I get munchkins running around my house :) Maybe I'll even start this year for kicks!
Carrie- you are an inspiration- thanks for sharing your gifts and love with us!

Maybe I can copy this at school. :)

Great idea. Are the leaves made of paper?

Thanks Amanda!

And the leaves are made out of paper. We wadded them up to make wrinkled and to them look more like fall leaves. And they are hanging from twine.

I think I will do this instead of our Thankful Tree. I throw it away every year, but a garland would be easy to save.

This is a great idea! I am so slow at getting this stuff rolling. By the time I am ready for it the holiday is over. Ugh!
