How is it the middle of November already? I was recently reading through my Family Fun magazine and found a fun and easy way to "give thanks". Decorate some sort of container (or just use a glass bowl like us) and cut strips of colorful paper. Each night at dinner during the month of November, each family member takes the time to write something they are thankful for. (I modified this for our family, as the original idea is to do it all year round) On Thanksgiving, you read what you are thankful for aloud...then you use the strips to make a paper chain for your Christmas Tree. Easy huh?
This morning I am particularly thankful for a little guy who stayed home from school today because of a nasty cough, a game of Cariboo and snuggles on the sofa.
