Our 2016 Thankful Tree

dsc_3729

We put up our 2016 thankful tree! We traced handprints for the branches this year and we have Bible verses that we are working on memorizing every week that are about being thankful. Each day the kids all say something that they are thankful to God for and then we add leaves to the tree. Their answers are sometimes silly and sometimes serious, but they are all things that we are thankful for . . . today the kids said they are thankful for Squishy (Joshua’s nickname), Gabby, bunnies, making stick people, Jesus, and fluffy wookies!  I am so glad that I started this tradition in our house! Here’s a walk down memory lane of some of our thankful trees from years past.

Here’s our 2011 tree with Joshua and Eliana
