Thanksgiving wreath tradition

Well it's that time of year again to think about the things we are thankful for. We had our traditional Thanksgiving family home evening this last week. Every year we make a wreath of fall leaves with the things we are thankful for written on the leaves. This year we each got ten leaves. After writing our top ten blessings down we shared them with each other and then I get to glue them all to the wreath form.

Here are some of the many blessings we are thankful for in our family this year:

Some of Katie's unprompted things:
-flying carpets???????
-care bears

Some of Emily's:
-her teacher
-friends to play with
-our neighborhood

Some from Chase:
-our home
-the world
-his friends

Some from Mom:
-great family on both sides
-hobbies and talents that I enjoy and serve my family
-that Dad loves me
-that Heavenly father spent so much time making our world beautiful
-awesome friends

Some from Dad:
-brave soldiers
-living in a free country
-good health
-good parents
-time to spend with loved ones


Just thought I'd share our FHE treat recipe with everyone it was really yummy!

2 pkg. of Pillsbury big and flakey crescent rolls

-unfold crescent rolls.
-add a tablespoon of nutella to the center of each triangle
-fold the edges over, press them down and then roll them up
-place on cookie sheet
-cook about 15 min. at 350 degrees or until golden brown
-let cool a bit and then sprinkle with powdered sugar
