Is it just me or is November just flying by? I lost track of time somehow…and just realized that Thanksgiving is next week!
I can’t believe there’s just a few short days before I am basting a turkey and getting all the trimmings done on Thanksgiving dinner…
This week for Thankful Thursday I wanted to share some of this week’s leaves that were added to our Tree of Thanks…
- Chocolate, lollipops, Jesus and God (This one was little guy’s.)
- Mamaw, Grandpa, my house and my toys
- Grandma Owl
- Playing with my cousin
- Pancakes (I think that’s up there 5 times now; they must really like pancakes!)
- I’m thankful that my Peanut didn’t get seriously injured when she hit her head on the I-beam after jumping off the top of the climber we have downstairs.
As always, now it is time for my favorite part…. It’s your turn!
Leave a comment with something you’re thankful for this week.

I really, really love your Tree of Thanks. What a great idea for teaching your children gratitude!
They loved doing it last year, so we just had to do it again this year. I’m thinking it’s a new family tradition now.
Love this – especially all of the thanks for pancakes! That is too cute! Also – I am glad peanut is ok. That’s a scary thing for you to have to go through!

I love your thankful tree idea. Super cute festive way to see all those thankful notes.
It’s become a new tradition for us — the kids love getting to add a leaf each day.
I asked the grandkids present what they are thankful for today….
1.) The six year old is thankful for “veterans saving the world, God, mom, and dad”
2.) The nine year old is thankful that “grandpa is coming home in a week.”
I also asked the two year old that I watch and his response was “papa.”
I personally am thankful that all the kids are healthy and have to agree with the nine year old that I am thankful that grandpa is coming home in a week. I miss him a lot. Thankful that I am healthy as well.
We are truly blessed:-)
I love hearing what kids are thankful for. 🙂
Hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving this year!

Thanks so much for stopping in and the follow! Yes, kids can come up with some funny lists! 🙂 Can’t wait to check out your post!

I am thankful for so many things!! I am so grateful my daughter has been healthier than she has EVER been in her nine years of life. I thank GOD for this every. single. day… that she wakes up okay…and goes to bed okay. It’s a new “normal” around here…and for that I am so very thankful! 🙂
The health of our children is always a blessing indeed! I hope your daughter’s health continues!
Thanks so much for linking up again this week!
I know what you mean! I definitely lost track of time too and couldn’t believe Thanksgiving was NEXT week! I realized it last night, haha! Crazy!
I love your tree of thanks. What a great idea! Today I am thankful to have a great relationship with my parents-in-law (we are headed to see them tonight!). 🙂
Glad it’s not just me losing track of time! 🙂 A good relationship with the in-laws is definitely a blessing! I hear so many awful stories about in-law relationships…

During this time of year, I am so grateful that my husband is such a great budgeter.
Visiting from SITS! I was happy to see you do a Thankful Thursday link up! In honor of Thanksgiving, I’ve been doing a Thankful Thursday post every week this month. I linked my one from last week, and will link up for the next two weeks. 🙂
Wonderful! I will have this week’s up Wednesday evening to avoid a conflict with getting the turkey in…. Please come back and link up with us! 🙂
