I hate to say it, but the way we celebrate Thanksgiving is not exactly conducive to cultivating gratitude in our children. We buy lots of food, maybe even some new clothes, stuff our faces and then camp out in front of the TV to digest and yell at the Giants to get the ball to the end zone. Where exactly is the “Thanks” in Thanksgiving?

I can’t believe it is already November! That means Thanksgiving is right around the corner. Our family likes to use this time to think about all that we are thankful for. This year we decided to make cards for our close family and friends.  With all the pretty colored fall leaves and a few nice flowers left in the garden, we tried out the ALEX My Flower Press so we could use them to decorate our cards.
