If you have been searching for  DIY Thanksgiving decorations, then you might have run into the same problem I did. I wanted to make a Thanksgiving craft for adults. I found lots of kids crafts, I found lots of tablescapes, but I could find almost nothing in the category of a DIY craft for adults that I would want to display in my home. I wanted a Thanksgiving decorations that I could make and use year after year. So I set out to make one myself.

Every Sunday our family holds Family Home Evening.  During this time we have a prayer, a lesson, a scripture and a game. But the highlight for the kids {and I'll be honest, for me too} is the treat. Everyone takes turns being responsible for a different part of the evening and whoever is in charge of the treat gets to choose what to have and help make it. One of the most requested items for my son is Cinnamon Rolls.

It's one of those holidays that often get skipped. Thanksgiving! Maybe it's not as exciting as other holidays. But I feel it's super important to take a step back from the "how much candy can I get on Halloween" and the "I really want this for Christmas" to reflect on "how much I already have" and "how many good people are in my life". I truly believe we can't be happy if we're not grateful for our lives as they currently are.

I am starting a grateful challenge on my Facebook page from now until Thanksgiving. I'd love you all to join in. There will be a prompt each day where we can share what we are grateful for about specific things. Some prompts will be fun and some a little more reflective. I hope it will be a good experience and a way to get to know each other better.

One of the things I'm so grateful for is the ability to create things. It's one of my absolute favorite things to do. So let's get creating!
