This brilliant idea brought to you by Cathy Baker, from Missouri, who writes Moments on the Journey (a favorite of mine!).
“Every November, since 2006, we’ve been doing the same activity. I have this old cornucopia that sits on our dining room table. Next to it are strips of blank paper and pens. Every night at dinner, we write one thing we are thankful for, share it, and put it in the cornucopia. Then on Thanksgiving Day, we read them all. Then I saved them all. And when I finally had enough at the end of last year, I made place-mats with them.”
“Tonight was the first night they were on our table. The girls smiles and enjoyment from reading them was simply precious. They were trying to get each other to guess who had wrote what! I also saved their fall artwork during these years and put it on the place-mats too. Two sheets of paper, covered with contact paper. Simple. Easy.”
Now is this brilliant or what?? Love this idea Cathy!
