thanksgiving crafts

Dustin selected this great branch outside for our "Thankful Tree"
It was then suspended above the feasting table.
Leaves were then cut out off cream card stock and a few were given to each person at the table. We took a moment before eating to reflect on  a few things we were thankful for and wrote one on each leaf. We then shared what we wrote as we pinned them to the tree with mini clothes pins. A great tradition and beautiful centerpiece.
And of course pilgrim hats. Kind of rough looking but yummy (as my brother who ate a few before dinner not realizing they were for the plates at dinner found out :)
