With Thanksgiving right around the corner, we are beginning to plan our menu and call dibs on the dishes we want to bring. Besides being with family, these sweet potatoes are one of the best things about Thanksgiving.
This recipe is so easy! It takes 5 ingredients and about 15 minutes to put together. The hard part is waiting the hour to chill these before eating them. It’s the perfect treat for any gathering this autumn, from Halloween to Thanksgiving!
Fall is definitely my favorite season. A big part of why it’s my favorite are all the flavors of fall. My mouth starts watering right around when Labor Day comes to an end and doesn’t stop for months! If you share my passion for fall flavors, you’ll LOVE these non-alcoholic fall drinks. They are like autumn in a cup! Enjoy!
Thanksgiving is coming right up and with Halloween behind us, now is the perfect time to decide on some new Thanksgiving traditions to start this year! Thanksgiving tends to get the shaft, and I completely understand why. Halloween can be all-consuming with kids and once it’s over, Christmas doesn’t seem too far away, and heaven…
We have all been blessed with talents and around our house I always teach my kids that practice makes us better. I thought it would be fun to create something fun for both me and the kids this month. My kids love being creative and I have been practicing my hand lettering this year. I thought a hand lettered printable coloring page would be something fun that we could all do together.
At my kids’ school, we asked dads, grandpas, uncles, older brothers, basically any adult male to come into the classroom, read a story/tale to the class, and then bring a neck tie to leave with the class to pin on the turkey as the turkey’s “tale” feathers. If you don’t have a school setting to use this activity for, then use your own home! You could ask the males to bring a story and tie for Thanksgiving Day or decorate tale feathers and add to the turkey.
Thankful lists abound this time of year. Most of them annoy me. No offense. If we were to look at your typical thankful list and liken it to a Thanksgiving spread, then most Thanksgiving lists would be comprised of nothing but turkey. I want thankful lists with real thought and a dash of humor! Not just the turkey…
I love that that Holiday Season begins with a focus on gratitude. The month of November is an ideal time to make a list of all the things you are grateful for. This festive Thanksgiving Family Night idea was created to help each member of your family understand the importance of “stuffing their lives” with gratitude for their many blessings.
Every Thanksgiving I get asked to bring a side dish to Thanksgiving dinner; this is something I am very thankful for! I’m going to let my mom and mother-in-law handle the heavy duty Thanksgiving dinner items for as long as possible. Preparing and cooking a turkey for 20+ people is not a skill I’ve developed yet, but side dishes? Those I can handle.
This word search is full of words that remind me of Thanksgiving. Both the food and the fun! Thanksgiving is one of my most favorite holidays because it’s all about focusing on our blessings and being with family. If you were to choose 12 words that represent Thanksgiving to you, what would they be?
What are YOU thankful for??
With today being Thanksgiving, I though it only appropriate to talk about gratitude and share some of the things that I’m thankful for, along with a fun video I found.
So, take a minute and let’s think about how blessed we are! Happy Thanksgiving!!
In my family Thanksgiving Day has always been a “you come, you eat (A LOT!), you chat, you leave” kind of holiday. This is just fine and dandy for us adults, but for the kids, it’s not a very exciting… So today I’ve rounded-up 15 different ideas for making the Thanksgiving holiday a little more fun for the kiddos. Have a Happy Thanksgiving!
