Thankful Tree 2013

We did a slightly different take on our Thankful Tree this year: a paper version on the wall. I have too little counter space in my kitchen to give it up for a whole month during baking season! And this worked really well. Both kids were writing a lot of their own items to put on the tree, which was fun to see. Markus also added two very tiny but very detailed beehives. They are the white-and-gray things you see on the trunk.


Apparently Daddy had a busy month of evenings (we usually share our thanks around the dinner table), because his list was short. But I know in his heart he is very thankful for many things. 🙂
