It sat with only a few leaves for a couple days, and then Lucy decided to get busy with those leaves!
We worked our little hearts out thinking of all the many things we are SO GRATEFUL for one night when everyone else was off galavanting around town.
And we got a good start on the “thankful-fullness” of that tree.
(Better add that on a leaf…)
Grace got busy picking up the slack 🙂
Some close-ups for posterity:
(Hi, Great, Great Grandkids!)
(Wellesley College is what Lucy calls Elle…but of course, we’re grateful for the actual Wellesley College as well…)
I love this time of year and thinking of all those big and little things that make life so beautiful.
Love, love, love it.
And you know what I love even more? When kids take those roots of gratitude and expand them to wherever they are. Elle sent this pic to our group family text a couple days ago:
…from her fridge over in Hawaii.
Thanksgiving and traditions are the best.
I cannot believe Thanksgiving is THIS WEEK! Yikes and happiness all mixed in together.
