I can’t believe it’s almost Thanksgiving!  Rock’s in My Dryer asked what works for us. Here are some freebies that work for me!

Week Before Thanksgiving Planner


Leftover Labels

If you are hosting dinner with lots of food and guests. Use these labels to be extra fancy when you send food home!


Thanks & Giving Tree

I love this idea from Chocolate On My Cranium of creating trees with leaves declaring things you are thankful for and giving moments to be shared! It’s never too late to get started on this wonderful family project.

Thanks and Giving Trees PDF

On one leaf we write something you are grateful for and stick it on the Thanks Tree. On another leaf, write something you’ve done to serve or give to others and place it on the Giving Tree. Serving can be as simple as sharing a toy or writing a letter to Grandma.


Not a download, but I thought these were so cute!!

What you need:

7 Candy Corn

2 Oreo Cookies

1 Whopper

1 Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup

1 Tube of Black piping gel

    I sent the link to your blog to my sister-in-law’s sister. She is looking for treats to make for her daughter’s preschool class. The turkeys would be perfect. KV

  4. Oh….my….gosh! Those candy turkeys are the cutest things I’ve ever seen! I must take the stuff with me on our Turkey Day trip! Thanks!

  5. Thanks for the planner download. Normally I just make a list, but I’m excited to have a fun way to lay everything out! The cookies are really cute too! They will be making an appearance at my Thanksgiving feast for sure!

    Also, I found your website via Bloggy Giveaways! I used to work at Grace in the children’s ministry with Monte. And get this: my husband works at Trinity Industries, and that annual report spent a lot of time on my coffee table. Small World! Love your site!

  6. You find the absolute neatest things Amy! I actually think I might be able to handle that turkey…the kids and their cousins will love it.


    P.S. Your box is addressed, labeled and ready to go to the PO today. Hopefully it will arrive safe and sound. 🙂
