Can you believe that we are actually in November, and Thanksgiving is only a few weeks away????....actually exactly 3 weeks from today! Time is moving so quickly! I must admit that I am getting anxious to break out the Christmas decor, but I also love my fall pieces, so I keep mine out for Thanksgiving. I really feel that this holiday is too easily overlooked and is losing its importance in our society. So, when we have Thanksgiving I take an ear of corn from my corn husks outside and I push off the kernels and put them in a bag. After dinner, each of us takes kernels of corn and says what we are thankful for....1 kernel for 1 thing that you are thankful for. We each take our turns saying one thing and placing our kernel in a bowl.....it helps the kids to really think of all things that they are thankful for. Then we start a craft.....Not sure what we will do this year....any good ideas for an afternoon craft for a few women and some kids? Or any special traditions that you do on Thanksgiving?
So, I will say a couple things I am thankful for:
*My wonderful family
*Our warm, happy home
Now, speaking of crafts.....My mind is always spinning and turning with new ideas when I see something in a store or on a blog, or outside; and right now my mind is at full throttle of so many things I want to make and try. Unfortunately I have zero time to do most things, but I hope to get a few things started or tried out this weekend....so stay tuned to see whats around the corner.
