Thankful Tuesday

I have loved seeing all the versions of Thankful Trees  everyone has been posting about and I love the idea even more.  So I decided instead of just talking about what we are thankful for, we would join in the fun and make our own family Thankful Tree. 
Here are Harper and Palmer putting leaves on our tree.  I think they were as excited about me letting them sit on the counter as they were about doing the tree. haha  As they hung a leaf, they said one thing they were thankful for.  My husband and I participated too. After putting on all the leaves, the girls said they had more things they wanted to say so they took the leaves off and did it again...a few times.
Proud of their tree!
We are limited on where we can put the tree because of a certain little man around here that likes to destroy anything he can get his hands on. The girls decided they wanted anyone who came over to see it so we put it up on the counter near the front door.
It cost me $0 to make this....we had the empty pot, the girls collected rocks and the tree limb outside, the stickers and ribbon were in my scrapbook stuff and we had the leaves already.  It doesn't have to be super fancy, beautiful or takes tons of time to make...getting your kids involved in saying thanks is what really counts!

What are you thankful for this holiday season?
