trying to teach ellie and jack the importance of this holiday.
it really bothers me that more emphasis isn't placed on thanksgiving.
what's more important then recognizing all we have been given from our loving Father in Heaven? when i do, things in life seem so much more full and rich.
we don't have any decorations for this time of year except for some gourds on our table left over from october, so i whipped up this banner last night. we're trying not to spend money on so many little things, so i used some old stripped wrapping paper left over from santa last year, card stock, and some twine. nothing fancy, but a good reminder for the month.
i love banners because they can be stored nice and flat, but can still add a punch to the festivities.
we strung it up before jack went to school and they are both pretty excited.
i hope this year they will understand a little better why we give thanks and who we give thanks to.
right now, i'm feeling quite grateful for this little dude
