Happy Thanksgiving!

Hope everyone has a Happy Thanksgiving!
I made this "Truly Grateful" small box with the Envelope Punch Board. It contains "I'm Thankful For..." cards that each person in the family will fill out. I want to do this each Thanksgiving and keep the cards in the box. Wouldn't it be a fun for the grandkids?
