Thankful Board

We have made a conscious effort with the kids during the month of November to talk about things that we are thankful for. I've seen friends post daily on Facebook about things they are thankful for and while that's great we have been working on it as a family. During our family meal, whether it is breakfast or dinner depending on Chris' schedule, we talk about things we are thankful for and write them down.

Last year, I made this thankful board out of a piece of foam board, some little coin envelopes, and some left over scrapbook paper. 
Last night when I asked Derek what he was thankful for he told me "Gee-Gee and her Chick-o-lay nuggets". Well, I know what they had for lunch at Mimi's house yesterday. :-)

At the end of the month we will go through and read them together, but I may leave them in the pockets to read next November.
