every month in family home evening we choose a family motto. november's motto was "i can be thankful". here's a picture of the finished gratitude turkey, which i saved for future use.
for december our motto is "i can serve others". every night at dinner we talk about something we did to serve someone else. we then write the service on our service chain on the kids' christmas tree. we got the chain started with blank links so that we could add later too.
the kids' love the idea, and i love that it's a great conversation starter.
