ABC's of Thanks

Each year, my Mom always posted a list of the ABC's with space next to them so we could add things we were thankful for that started with each letter during the month of November.

I have continued this tradition in our home and came up with a document in Word that I can just print out each year. I would be happy to share the electronic document with anyone is interested - just leave a comment and your e-mail address!

Also, this year - I decided to post an item starting with each letter during this month to share things I'm thankful for. Please join in as we get to each letter!

Our family would love to do this, this year. Especially as our two youngest are working with the alphabet so much lately!

We usually write our things we are thankful for on laminated leaves with a wet-erase marker and post on the doorposts.

We'll try your method this year!

Monica, this is wonderful! I would love to have a copy and start this with my 2 wee ones. They are still a bit small to actually say something they are thankful for but as you said in an earlier post, they see, watch, and want to take part.
