Preparing for Thanksgiving

Can hardly wait to ring the dinner bell! Thanksgiving planning has started in our home.  We will be having 30 for dinner.  While that sounds like a lot of guest the fun part  is half of them are under 12.  All the little ones add joy and yes, stress.  You have to keep them  entertained until dinner is served.

One of our tricks over the years has been to have a kids table.  Instead of tablecloth we use brown butcher paper.  Have a basket filled with crayons and washable markers.  We also have some coloring pages and word searches.
