Our Thankful Tree

Other years we’ve used whole tree branches.  This year we used sticks spray-painted silver and put into a big vase.  Then I picked some shades of poster paper that went well with the vase, and we cut out dozens of leaves.  Today we each hot-glued a couple blessing-leaves to the tree.  We’ll aim to each add a blessing or two a day until Thanksgiving.

Blessings from today?

  • Pizza
