It's Friday, lovelies and a three day weekend for me!!  I really in need of all three days too. Haha!  Last weekend, when the girls and I were crafting away, we made a thankful board.  I think I saw this idea last year from Becky Higgins.  I just fell in LOVE with it and knew I wanted to do the same thing for our family.

I bought a 16x20 poster frame at Walmart for $8, a piece of white poster board and I already had the black Thickers and Sharpies.  I took the plastic out of the frame (it was a cheapie so no glass here) that way we could write on it.  The girls and I got started on it right away.  But as the week has progressed, our board has already gotten quite full!  It's been so fun to see what the girls will write :)  Yesterday, after school, I came in from the garage and found the girls on the floor writing away on the board.  Nothing could have made me happier!  I can't wait to display this all year long, I have the perfect place for it in out upstairs hallway!!

Thanks for stopping by today.  Mike is working on the shed all day Saturday and Sunday we're hoping to spend some time together.  We've been so busy with school activities that we just need some downtime.  On Monday I'm going to run up to Abie's Veteran's Day Program, she's in choir this year and has a solo!!  In the midst of all of that, I'm hoping to clean my craft room and maybe get a few cards done that are on my list.  I hope you have a great weekend and I'll see you soon!!
