Thankful Thoughts

Thanksgiving is just a few days away and we have been working on what we are thankful for for the last couple of weeks.
Now that Kayla can write pretty well on her own she has been writing down what she is thankful for everyday for the past few days and we have been decorating our tree with her thankful thoughts.
She has loved doing this and it has been so fun hearing what she chooses to write everyday.
(I've listed all of her thankfuls at the end of this post)

We didn't do anything fancy for this just used plain white paper and her lovely words written on each piece taped onto the tree.

Now that the tree is full it looks so beautiful and I will be a bit sad this weekend when I have to take all these down.
I love that we have started a new fun tradition and have something to look forward to next Thanksgiving.
