A Thankful Heart is a Happy Heart - Gratitude Journal

Last Thanksgiving we spent the day with friends.  I wanted to bring a meaningful gift to show our thanks and appreciation for inviting us to their family celebration.  I found a "Fall" looking journal and inscribed a special message.  Each person wrote in the journal what they were thankful for.  The young ones drew a picture.  I told the host to put the journal away with the Thanksgiving decorations so that every year your guests can write in the journal.
This year my family will be starting this tradition.  I ordered a notebook on Shutterfly which included my favorite family pictures.  It will be fun to look back every year to see who was at our Thanksgiving, what they were thankful for and to see their handwriting.  Nowadays most notes are emailed or printed.  Hand written notes are always treasured.
Wishing you many blessing this Thanksgiving with your family and friends!

I can't believe that tomorrow is the final Fall Mommy and ME class.  I feel so THANKFUL that I am able to plan and teach these classes.  The giggles and smiles from the students AND their moms are priceless!  Thank you for sharing your Mondays with me.
Final pages to their memory book

See you in December:

YEAH for Arts and Crafts

Never too late to post a Halloween project.  Getting my five year old to "do crafts" with me has never been his favorite thing.  However, he had fun adding the stitches and using the silver permanent marker.  Here is my one and five year old footprint.  Definitely, a keeper!

After reading this article, Arts and Crafts in Childhood Predict Innovation and Entrepreneurship in Adulthood, I hope my son will thank me when he grows up.
