The Thankful Chain


So the colorful chain you see above is the chain we started working on before Thanksgiving.  We decided to add it to our little Christmas tree in our playroom for decoration.  The kids love to put that tree up during thanksgiving break - it actually was the first tree to go up.  (We have 3 up - so thankful we got married during the Christmas season and the two trees we bought for wedding decor have made it all these years!!) The thankful chain is now on the little tree in the family room.  This was the first year I had done this with the kids and it was such a fun experience.  These are the things that we put on the chain -
