.."thankful" touches..

Okay Mamas.. so all my in laws, all 14 of them are coming over on Saturday.. I have been thinking of something "thankful" I could do, so we can all reflect a lil more on the meaning of the Holiday!

Do you have any traditions you do?

..go around the table saying one thing you are thankful for?

..a thankful WALL, they can write on?

..thankful jars for each person.. then everyone anonymously writes something they are thankful for about that person?

Any and all ideas appreciated! ;)​

      We like to go around the table before we eat and everyone say what they are thankful for and then say grace. But I found this great idea on the internet about a thankful box where everyone writes down what they are thankful for so we might do that this year too. And WOW 14 in laws your going to a busy bee. It's only going to be me, hubby,kids, sister and her dad, my mom and nephew.

        Oh I agree... my sweet grandfather who passed away years ago.. he was a farmer, a strong, handsome dude.. with 8 kiddos.. hard worker.. but every year, for Thanksgiving and Christmas.. we would all come over.. literally all 30-40+ of us.. we would hold hands in a circle before we ate and someone would pray.. grandpa would always say he "wanted to say something.." but the sweet soul could never get more than a few words out because he would start crying about how blessed and lucky he felt.. I'll always remember those times.. seeing a guy I looked up to SO much realize how blessed he was :)

          We usually go around the table.
