Thanksgiving Memories

I can’t believe Thanksgiving is almost here. It seems like school just started. Because of changes in my life situation, I’ve been working. I’m amazed at how the time seems to fly by when life is dictated by someone else’s clock.

Thanksgiving has always been one of my favorite holidays. You get the feeling of family togetherness, without the busyness Christmas brings. I remember when I was young and we would all gather at my Aunt’s house and I’d play with cousins all day. Eventually, as we grew up and started having children of our own, the group got too large and we started meeting with only our own family. I miss the days of gathering with relatives I don’t see as often.

When I was a teenager, I hated the time before dinner when we’d go around the table and say something we were grateful for. It invariably brought tears to my eyes which at that time I was too proud to show very often. I wish I had photographs to look back on those happy times, but I don’t so they will have to live on in my memory.

This Thanksgiving, take the opportunity to create memories you will never forget, but also remember to document them through photographs, journaling, and even scrapbook pages for future generations to look back on and enjoy.

Here are a few Thanksgiving scrapbooking ideas to get your imagination started. Look through them and plan now how you will save the memories of this special day.

-Pictures while preparing the meal or carving the turkey.
-Pictures of people watching football and the children playing.
-New members of the family – babies or in-laws.
-Traditional family recipes.
-List of things you are thankful for.
-Have those present sign a slip of paper with what they are thankful for and include them on your page.
