Happy Halloween!

Hi everyone! It’s a few days late, but I thought I’d share our Halloween picture with you. This year we had a Scarecrow, a Football Player, a Cowboy and a Ballerina! We attended our church’s Trunk or Treat event and had great time. Plus, it was pretty nice that I didn’t have to cook dinner that night, the church had hotdogs for everyone. It’s so fun for kids to dress up and get candy! On Halloween night, we were home and the kids were ecstatic to hand out candy to Trick or Treaters who came through our neighborhood.

25 Days of Thanksgiving, Day #1: Being Thankful

Hi guys! Day #1 of the 25 Days of Thanksgiving is going to focus on Being Thankful.

There are so many ways we can teach our kids how to be thankful. One of my favorites is to create a “Thankful Tree.” I usually just take a piece of posterboard and draw the outline of a tree with no leaves. Then I cut out little leaves with different colored construction paper and have the kids write what/who they are thankful for on the leaves and we glue it onto the branches of the tree. You can make it as simple or fancy as you want. Here are a few links I found on Pinterest to give you some ideas:
