I love being able to create traditions within our little family…is having 3 kids still considered little??… anyways it’s just super fun and even more rewarding.
As it’s Thanksgiving weekend up here in Canada I had to whip out our special Thanksgiving Tablecloth. I’ve already said how it works in the title, but I’m ok with repeating myself because I have the ‘Running-on-NO-sleep’ card in my hand having just had Cowkid 3.
You get a white tablecloth. Sharpie on “THANKSGIVING” in the centre. Then every year each member of the family sharpies 5 things they’re greatful for onto it.
Of course if it’s babies first Thanksgiving a handprint is warranted. We put their hand on an ink pad then onto the tablecloth and sharpie trace it – as you can see below:
It requires 2 adults to accomplish this awkward task of getting their handprint… it’s a tricky business with wiggly new baby fingers.
Happy Thanksgiving weekend to all Canadians. Though there is much to be disheartened over, I hope we can take the time this weekend to see the good, the true, and the beautiful in our lives.
May your home be blessed with family. Your heart be blessed with health. And your belly be blessed with pumpkin pie.
