Thanksgiving Again–Gratitude

I really like Thanksgiving!  It’s all about family food, and the opportunity to set a beautiful table!

They are having a Thanksgiving Challenge over at the CSI Project this week, and I initially thought I would do a quick post to give you a run down of some of my favorite past Thanksgiving projects as I linked them up to the challenge.  That’s when I realized, I have a LOT of Thanksgiving projects!  So we are going to have to break it down a bit!

Let’s start with the most important ones…the reminders to be grateful–something we should do everyday.  I like to try and start this early in the month and make the entire month of November a month to be thankful! Thanksgiving Tree

My Gratitude Tree was a big hit when I initially posted it a few years back.  I think the first version is still the favorite, but not as easy to replicate with my now-wallpapered wall.
1st Version
2nd Version

I have a different design in mind for the gratitude tree this year.  Here’s hoping I can get around to making it this weekend, in between trying to make the fairy party I keep postponing for my daughter, a reality.

In the mean time.  If you want to hear me talk more about gratitude and helping teach it to our children, here is the episode of “Mom Time TV” I filmed last year.  I thought some important points were made.

Keep watching for more Thanksgiving insanity, featuring ideas for the kids table, fun placecards, pretty centerpieces, etc.!

    I'm in love with that tree–we have that exact same layout with the closet there and the stairs.
    Such a great family activity!! I SOOO want to do this (or remember it for next year at the very least). What did you make the tree out of? Would love a little "tutorial" 🙂

    Hey Sara!

    I'm so glad you like the tree. I wrote a little more about the how-to in my initial post, here:

    Let me know if that answers your questions. There really isn't a wrong way to do it.

    Thanks Kendra! That did help! I wouldn't have thought of that!
    I featured your fabulous tree on my blog post last night! 🙂 Love it!
