Thanksgiving tips, people are always looking for them, but I tend not to give them out so much. Probably because I feel it is a “to each his own” situation. Thanks to having kids I have given up on perfection and I’m a better and more happy person because of it. So, this Thanksgiving I thought I would share some fun posts from the past that focused on the holiday. I hope you enjoy this round up and whatever form Thanksgiving brings to you, have a happy one!
