The Thankful Tree

The same day we started the whole unprocessed thing, we also started our "thankful tree."



We've got a little box with all our supplies that lives just opposite the dining room table.



Each night after dinner we write one thing we are thankful for on a piece of the paper.



These are my favorites so far.
Alia ... first night is thankful for LOVE.
Jono ... second night (first night was his ripstick !) is thankful for LIFE.



Once we've written them down we stick them to the wall where our tree will 'grow'.

I'll share the progress with you from time to time ...
and of course, more of my favorite things that we are thankful for !!
