Thankful Chain Christmas Garland

We started this "Christmas thankful chain" on Thanksgiving day

We each came up with a few things we were thankful for and wrote them on a link.  We try to add a few each day.

I love looking at some of the things the kids have come up with ... a few of my favorites are "babydolls", "Star Wars toys" and "hot chocolate".

I enjoy adding to this everyday  throughout the season... I'm hoping it will swoop all the way around the room by the New Year!

I'm finding this to be a really nice reminder of all the things we are thankful for... especially in a season that can cause kids to dwell on "what I want".  So many people ask our kids the question, "what do you want for Christmas?" throughout the month of December; it's nearly unavoidable they will think about it more often than the rest of the year.  We'll see if this helps.

Thanks so much for stopping by!  It's a week past Thanksgiving, but I'd love to hear what you are most thankful for in the comments!
