Sometimes I have a day that I can look back on and be proud of the fact that I accomplished something meaningful with the boys. It doesn't happen every day unfortunately, but the other day it did and that made me happy. We made a "thankful tree" together and posted it on the sliding glass door by our table. The boys then got to write things they are thankful for on paper leaves and glue them to the door. They had a blast doing this and even Jonas joined in. Malachi did all the writing and Elliott was very opinionated about where each leaf should be placed. It is fun to look at the leaves and see the things our boys thought of, everything from family and friends to glue and pranks. All in all it was a successful project and we still have a bowl of leaves that the boys can fill out and hang as more things come to mind!
