Hello! I've been away from home for almost a week. My family and I enjoyed a nice vacation to Washington DC. My husband and son flew home Sunday, while my daughters and I stayed a little longer to spend time with my sister in Maryland. It's been so nice not to worry about anything, except maybe that I shouldn't be eating so many of my sisters homemade cinnamon rolls.
I just realized that Thanksgiving has snuck up on me faster than I realized. I wanted to share some of the things I've been thinking about to help us celebrate.
Every year my sister and I were in charge of making gum drop turkeys for each place setting. It was my favorite traditon at Thanksgiving. Sometimes we would make fifty or more so everyone in our large extended family could have one. I've tried to make them every year with my kids.

I'm not a huge fan of Gum drops so I think this year we will make these trukeys by Nike at Thrive. They look modern and yummy. You can find the tutorial HERE.
I would love to try and make these simple paper hats and bonnets. You can find Martha's instructions for them HERE.
How about you? I love hearing how others celebrate. What do you do to celebrate while dinner is cooking?
