Thankful Thursday

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!!

This is my favorite Holiday of the year! Today we will be heading over to Richard’s sister’s house for a yummy lunch then off to his parent’s house for Thanksgiving dinner. I’m happy, Thankful really, to not host Thanksgiving this year, but I did make my famous Cranberry Sauce!

I’ve had a week of thanks I’d like to share

I am thankful for

-Richard and Bey who will do everything else for me with baby when I need them to

-quiet time to myself in the mornings and at night

-recipes that take only 20 minutes to make

-Richard, who remembers to get me coffee when I run out

-the Ergo so I can hold baby all of the time and not get tired

-the activity bouncer to keep Oli entertained so I can get things done some days

-family {my little one, Richard’s, and mine}

What are you thankful for?

Thankful Thursday

November is the month of being Thankful. And with Thanksgiving right around the corner I wanted to focus on our family recognizing the things we are thankful for. So I made a ‘Thankful’ jar. We write what we are thankful for on a piece of paper and slip it into the jar. Then on Thanksgiving while we are sitting around the table with our families, we will each read off what we wrote. I am even encouraging people who come over to visit to write something and put it in the jar!

It was really easy to make, too!

Grab a jar or container {I used a left over half pint mason jar from various projects}, a pen, and some paper. I used some rub-ons that I got from Heidi in the huge scrapbooking stash {I also used the paper for this} she gave me to decorate the jar.

We plan on each writing something at least once every day to put in there. It could be anything – something someone did for you that day that you were thankful for, or that week. Or something in life or in general you are thankful for. It can be anything from something sentimental to something silly like ‘I am thankful for cookie butter from Trader Joes’. Anything!

Then on Thanksgiving read off what everyone is thankful for!

I’ll be doing a weekly ‘Thankful Thursday’ post for this month, listing off the things I have been thankful for the past week. Since it is the first day of the month and it just so happens to be on a Thursday, I am going to share with you one thing I am thankful for..

My amazing kids.

What are you thankful for?
