With Thanksgiving just around the corner and our family having welcomed a new member this year (My Brother had his first born last month) I thought it would be nice to start a new tradition in our family. I think most everyone says what they are thankful for each year on Thanksgiving, I know our family does. So I thought it would be nice to make a gratitude journal and have everyone in the family right down what they are Thankful for on a little piece of paper. That way we can look back at what we've written over the years.
You can use many things to make one of these. Let your creativity go wild. You can use things like:
Fall theme Stickers
so many options.
I am going to have my family right down what they are Thankful for on a card that says " 5 Reasons To Be Thankful" and then I'll have them sign there name and date it. That way we know who's is who and what year. Project life journaling cards would also work great to write on.
Don't think you have to make it overly fancy, if you don't have a lot of money or time just find a cute little journal for everyone to write in.
Another fun idea would be to add some of your favorite photos from the past year or maybe take some polaroid's on Thanksgiving day and stick them in the journal.
You could also add quotes around the them of Thankfulness or even bible verses.
I can't wait for this Thanksgiving to have my family write down what they are thankful for and have it as a keepsake.
If you like this idea and make one yourself please send me a picture on Instagram or Twitter @ChicCountryGirl
I hope you all have a fantastic Thanksgiving. And eat lots of Pumpkin pie!
