If you remember, we started building our centerpiece for the Thanksgiving table a little while ago. It started out looking pretty bare, as a picture showed in the post describing how we created it.
Before taking the Thankful Tree down to make room for Christmas decorations, we took a moment to admire the final tree.
So, you’re maybe wondering what was written on those leaves. Here’s the full list (and I’ll remind you, a 3-year-old had a heavy hand in determining what we were thankful for each day):
- Warm cookies
- Crispy smashed potatoes on a Sunday evening
- Snuggly cats who can remind you to slow down. And pet them.
- Warm fires in the fireplace
- Dance class
- Whispered words from m son about how much he likes to snuggle
- The food processor
- Poop. In the toilet.
- Pee. In the toilet.
- Daughters who cook better than their mother.
Sometimes it was tricky to remember which “kid” in the family wrote what. But the guests yesterday loved the idea and got a real kick out of reading all the leaves on the tree. It’s something we’ll be trying again in another year!
Up next: decking the halls.
