Tree of Thanks

As you may have noticed, I have not posted in awhile. 

We were not able to purchase the "new casa" and that was very depressing for me.  As you know, I've been counting on  it and dreaming about it for one year.  The house is under contract with another buyer right now.  I still think that sale will fall through and the house will be ours, but in the meantime, my husband thought it best if we looked for another house and jump right into another purchase to help us forget this one.

We found a couple however, we decided to wait until January before making any decisions, as this is a very hectic time of year.  Although we want to jump right into buying a home and moving, we think we should be more clear about the decision.  We wouldn't want to make any mistakes!

We did take the time to have a wonderful Thanksgiving day and prepare for our family meal.  We created a Tree of Thanks with a branch from a tree.  My daughter cut out construction paper in the shape of leaves.  We put them out for everyone to take as many leaves as they'd like and write one thing they are grateful for on each leaf.  It was a beautiful idea, it gave everyone a chance to really think about and actively give thanks for the important things in their lives.

I wish we'd thought of this years ago, but so glad we finally figured it out!!!

I hope everyone had a blessed Thanksgiving and may you have many things to be
 happy and grateful for next year!
