For the past few years we have had a November tradition of making a "Thankfulness Tree" (see 2009's). We add leaves to it daily with written notes of things for which we are thankful. Last year, the branch we found to make our tree was particularly pitiful. This year, I did not have high hopes for a better one from our walks so I decided to try for a thankfulness wreath by our door. As a result, we got a late start, but better late than never.
This year's list included the following:
Many names (of our family, our sometimes dog, and all the guests who were sharing Thanksgiving with us and making this the best Thanksgiving ever).
My Job (Dad)
Our New Baby (Søren)
Quiet Time (Mom)
Our new church (Mom)
No More Mustache (Mom)
The Christmas Tree (Dad)
Decorating for Christmas (Elliot)
For being big (Elliot)
Our family (Søren)
