As we enter the “Hal-Thank-Mas” season life gets very busy! It is important to remember to actually listen to our children and not just herd them from event to event. Ask them what they remember liking from other holiday seasons. What would they most like to do next. Some of my children’s favorite memories are toasting pumpkin seeds–not carving the pumpkin.
Since Thanksgiving is a holiday centered around food I think it is important that every person contribute a dish–at least from the ages of 2 and up. Over the years some of the dishes have gotten really tasty and everyone has better memories of the holiday–especially the main chef!
