Thanksgiving Advent Project

So it's been a while, a LONG while, since I've been on here. But we've been busy with life. I started a Thanksgiving Advent Project today, and wanted to share! We are a bit late to start with November 1st, so our first project today was to start a Thankfulness Jar. This is just a mason jar, that we are filling every day with something we are each thankful for. This is our list, with ideas borrowed from here and here. I put each days activity into a cup like this although mine probably won't turn out as cute :) You are supposed to fill the cups with treats, but I don't have any, so I don't think I will. Happy Thanksgiving!
