Thanksgiving morning (or rather Friday morning when we celebrated our Thanksgiving) the kids ran to get our Thanksgiving Mailbox, it was mail time!
Over breakfast of homemade scones and tea/coffee, everyone received an envelope with notes inside from each of us about the things in that person we were grateful for. The two older girls LOVED it and just shined when they read or we read to them all the encouraging notes.
We also read all the things we had written over the two weeks that we were grateful for. The kids enjoyed it more than I thought and it was a fun way to celebrate Thanksgiving morning.
With a heart full of gratitude.
In our west corner enjoying our mail,
