Garland of Thanks {things Miss G is thankful for 2014}

Last year Gracen and I created our first ever showcase of gratefulness with a giant thankful tree.  I loved having a visual representation of all of the things she felt thankful for and the process of creating the tree together provided the perfect opportunity for us to discuss just how much we have to be grateful for.  This year, we decided to switch things up a little bit.  We once again created fall leaves {but this time using real leaves as stamps} and then turned them into a beautiful garland of thanks.

Since colourful fall leaves just don’t exist here in the desert, this was the next best thing. ☺

My favourite part of this year’s thankful project?  Miss G printed all of the things she’s thankful for on her own!  This year’s list included:  Mama and Papa, Germany, swimming pools, toys, family, her craft table, Dora band-aids {HAH!}, parks, blankets, water, clothes, pictures, books, and sunshine.
