Thankful Pumpkin, a New Family Tradition

Lynn Carver-Quinn posted this suggestion on Facebook:

Want to start a new family tradition that will teach your kids about thankfulness? Every night for the month of October, gather as a family, and add a few items to your Thankful Pumpkin! You'll have a beautiful Thanksgiving decoration!

Good afternoon Roy - that is such a wonderful idea.  There should be no problem filling up the pumpkin.

Nice idea, Roy.  We see spooky and funny pumpkins, but never a thankful pumpkin. That would be a fun activity for those with children.

That would be a wonderful tradition to begin!  The line for complaints is always long and it seems the line for gratitude is always empty.

Hello Roy - even though I saw this post and this photo earlier this week, it definitely puts one(me that is) into that feeling of Fall even though our temps may not completely align with that image.

That suggestion can gather a great collection of ideas and colors and if done right a great accumulation of gourds for some type of food dish
