    I love the pumpkin one Amy. As you may know by now we dont have thanks giving in Australia. But that didn’t mean we can not be thankful for everything. So I would be able to see the pumpkin on our table with the writing on as a centre piece any time. Thanks for posting.

    Trying to decide which idea to use, it’s important to help children (and adults) in these times of uncertainty to remember to be thankful for what we do have. You and your family have a blessed Thanksgiving.

    Hi Amy! Doing some catching up tonight and wanted to stop by and see how you were doing. I’ve been looking around at what I’ve missed too. That magisto video post sounds interesting!

    Hope you had a good holiday!
