Celebrate Thanksgiving with your family by spending some time reminiscing together over this year's most cherished memories, and moments to be thankful for.

Take turns jotting down your favorite memories from this year, or make a special note about something you are extra thankful for on one of the included notecards. Pass the ceramic jar around the table and share what you wrote as you add your card to the jar. Who knows where the conversation will go as each person shares their favorite memory!
