So if you read my other blog you know that we are strongly encouraging A to be thankful for what she has her family, home, food, friends, and the basic necessities in life not just materialistic things. We all know those things that take up space and clutter our homes but we can’t live with out! Here is a peak at what we worked on this week to stick with our theme of “Thankfulness”.
We started off thinking of others by making a homeless man a little lunch. Abby helped pack the lunch (a peanut butter and jelly sandwich, chips, a granola bar, and a water). We drove by one of the streets near the freeway that often has a homeless person sitting with a sign and waived the lunch out the window. A was a bit confused by this “why he aint got a home?” However, I know someday she will look back at it and be grateful that she was able to help someone in need at such a young age “3” 🙂
Then Abby made a card to slip into the lunch that read “May God Bless you” and A added her own artful design to it !
We also made some “Tootsie Turkeys” as a little memory of how cute our little feet were in 2008! Abby is very excited to be growing bigger everyday so Mommy wanted to bottle up those little turkey toes! Abby of coarse loved the tracing, gluing, and cutting.
We also made a “Thankful Tree” with our friends on Halloween. The leaves each hold the name of someone special to Abby. This was a lot of fun to make. We love looking at it everyday on our kitchen table to remind us of how blessed we are to have such a good family.
