a little tour of our "thankful" home

Thanksgiving is in full swing around here!

We have had fall decor up for a few months now, but I added a little Thanksgiving touch about a week ago, to remind us to count our blessings!

We leave for Texas in a few days, to spend the holiday with my family at our ranch, so I wanted to make sure we had plenty of time to celebrate as a little family of 4 here in our home before we head out. Because as soon as we return, it will be time to "deck the halls" for Christmas!

I had  to dig a little to find everything, since this is our first holiday season in our new home, but I think it was worth it!

Our little "thankful" banner made for us by 517 Creations. It hangs in our home this time of year to remind us of a loving God who pours out His mercy and grace, love and many blessings upon us. A God who watches over and protects us.

Our table of thanks. The perfect size for our little family.

To create a similar look, purchase DaySpring's Ever Grateful Collection, now 50% off. The tall centerpiece is a Pinterest find from last fall. You simply put a candle in a clear vase and surround it with corn kernels. So easy and inexpensive!

In this shot you can see the window clings that the boys decorated our back door with. I found them in the $1 bins at Target. So fun!

Here is a closer look.

This cute little owl banner hangs over the bar where the boys usually eat, do homework, etc. It is another Target $1 bin find. So cute!

Just a cute little wooden pumpkin, to remind us of God's provision.

I am in love with this little owl candle that I got at Target a few years ago! Adorable!

Little E decided to "help" with the decorating. :)

Our little "thankful" turkey, also made by 517 Creations. Every year we fill it with blessings, together as a family, sometime during the Thanksgiving season.

My little turkeys! :)

And just for little Indian. We got to eat lunch with him today at school for his class Thanksgiving feast. He is called "Green Grass." :)

Our Thanksgiving scripture. It sits in our kitchen to remind us where our blessings come from! The memo board is a piece of DaySpring's Ever Grateful Collection. I love changing out the message every season!

Happy Thanksgiving, friends! May you have a blessed holiday, surrounded by loved ones, remembering all that God has done for you!
