Grab your kids and come up with a list of words that describe your family– qualities you strive for and things you like to do together.  Handwrite the words or print them out on cardstock or construction paper.

    Oh yesterday on Tuesday, how I’ve missed you! Sorry I haven’t been to visit in a while.
    Wow! This is such a great idea, I’m going to work on it with Anika, and make all our guests add to the tree when they come for Thanksgiving!

    Such a great idea-thanks for linking up! I like how it is a reminder for the kids (because they wrote the words) of just how blessed they really are.
