thankful hearts

i've said it a million times... fall is my favorite time of year. this year we are being proactive in voicing our thankfulness! i started by making a HUGE reminder that resides in our living room! i got his great idea from here!

then, we created a thankful jar. the kids would tell me things that they are thankful for and we'd write it on a piece of paper. each day, we draw a thankful card out and then do something about our thankfulness. (example: on the day that we were reminded of being thankful for our bodies we made sure to exercise... on the day that we draw "we are thankful for riley and caleb" we are going to wrestle with them!) this idea was stolen too... you can find it here!
this is a little area of my house that i spruced up for the season. the bench was in the garage and makes a perfect spot for my books. the wreath is a gift from my sweet Gran and reminds me of her often!
happy thanksgiving friends!! i hope your heart is overflowing w/ gratitude. He has provided above and beyond what we could ever need!
