We started a new Thanksgiving tradition a few years ago while we lived in Cleveland, and its one that our whole family seems to look forward to. Each year, at the beginning of November, I put up a bare tree, and set out a bowl of paper leaves on the bookshelf closeby. Then, throughout the month, family members can write things that they are thankful for on the leaves and tape them up. I love watching the tree fill up. This year, I decided that in addition to taking a picture of it, I would write down what we had put on it. Here is our 2013 Thankful Tree.
