I am kind of moved by this idea of a 'Thankful Pumpkin' because it helps remind you about the small things and help you appreciate the little things to hopefully pass on to the kiddos which of course is get to instill in them. We kind of forget a lot about these things and the impact it will make you.
All you have to do according to the Today Show, is write things that you are thankful for which is pretty easy. It can be people, objects, pets, things, ideas, dreams or whatever you want. And take pictures - maybe turn this into a yearly tradition and see how it evolves!
