Treasured Memories

With two weeks until Thanksgiving, we thought we'd share a family tradition with you all.

Several years ago Mom purchased a queen sized quilt for her Thanksgiving tablecloth. As we all gather around the table, there are sharpie pens that we use to write on the tablecloth what we are thankful for that year.

Every Thanksgiving we enjoy reading what everyone wrote in the years past.

Make this a part of your family's tradition........memories that will be treasured for years to come.

That is an inspiring idea signing that tablecloth. I will start doing that this Thanksgiving. Thank you!

Wow, I've never heard of anyone doing this... but that's the coolest Thanksgiving idea! Beautiful table, too.

I LOVE your mom's tradition and that everyone writes on the tablecloth what they are thankful for!
When my oldest son got married, I asked everyone to sign the tablecloth at the engagement party and we wrote verses from favorite love songs and sonnets. The new couple cherish it.
thanks for sharing,
