The things we are thankful for...Thanksgiving Picture

Well this month started off very busy here between young Americans and the 4-H benefit auction, things here are running a bit behind. But this week we got the opportunity to catch up a little bit, we had a 4 day week at school and little homework in the evenings. We also didn't have multiply meetings or events. (ah) So we got to move from Halloween to Thanksgiving here.  For the past couple of years we have started a thankful picture. We find a picture that represents Thanksgiving and then we use the overhead projector, (that hides out in my basement thanks to a school auction) to enlarge the picture. Once drawn, we bring it upstairs and the boys color the picture except where we are going to list the many things we are thankful for. This picture is hung on my kitchen wall, where each night at dinner, we each get to add something to our Thanksgiving picture. On Thanksgiving we take time to re-read our Thanksgiving picture.  This has become something that the boys look forward to in November because we hadn't got it accomplished until the 8th of November and when I asked if we were doing the picture they answered "Of Course." So I guess a tradition has begun here at our house.

The Pilgrim's hat is where it was decided that we would write our "thankfulness"
