This & That: Thanksgiving Prep

We're a day away from Thanksgiving but we're all ready for Christmas over here.  We never decorate early but did this year and I've really been enjoying it - might have to be a new tradition.  We still have to get our real tree and do a few more things this weekend.  Tatum loves turning the lights onto the trees each night.

While we're in the Christmas mood, we're still excited for Thanksgiving.  We're hosting but each my mom and mother in law are bringing items so the actual food prep isn't too hard.  I have the table set, serve ware out and Tatum helped get things ready - next year hopefully he'll be setting the table for me.

To get ready for the season of giving, we did a family trip to the grocery store to load up on items to drop off to the food bank ahead of tomorrow.

We also had fun putting together and dropping off our Operation Christmas Child boxes - this always sneaks up on me each year!  I'm looking forward to next year when Tatum will understand a little bit and can be a little more help in picking things out and putting them together.

Last night we put together our gingerbread turkey set from Trader Joe's and I'm so excited that this is the first holiday season that Tatum sort of gets and enjoys activities like this - he loved putting the candy on... Will definitely be looking forward to gingerbread house making.

Happy Thanksgiving! xx 


  1. Hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving! I usually participate in Operation Christmas Child but didn't this year. Think it's great when people help others. Your home looks beautiful with the Christmas tree.

  2. That gingerbread turkey is too cute! I didn't even know they made those - definitely going to have to grab two next year for my nephews (and me, haha!).
