The Gratitude Pumpkin

This is actually something new we tried this year. We wrote what we were thankful for on a pumpkin throughout the month of November. We may not do this next year; but it sure was fun.

This picture is from last year. I love this picture for many reasons; but mostly because Lily had not  lost any of her top teeth yet. Her teeth look so different this year.  Oh my word, she’s growing up too fast!!

I love this idea of taking time each day to stop and reflect on all the good God has given us, even on a bad day. It’s a practice, that when it becomes a habit, can be life changing. The habit of being grateful.

It was a great decoration and conversation piece at Thanksgiving last year. So, we are doing it again this year. I thought we’d change things up a bit with a white pumpkin.

We started a little late this year; but I’m sure it will filled up by Thanksgiving. I’ll be sure to post a picture of our finished pumpkin on Face Book or Instagram. If you don’t follow me in those places, you can click on the links and follow me now.

  1. I love this idea!! I’ve been thinking of a way that we can do a project to display all that we are grateful for. This is getting the wheels in my head rolling. Thanks for sharing 🙂
