Thanksgiving and Christmas Prep

Thanksgiving quote:

Thanksgiving Day is a jewel, to set in the hearts of honest men; but be careful that you do not take the day, and leave out the gratitude. ~E.P. Powell

Here you will find some Thanksgiving Crafts to do with your Kids

The chocolate lip gloss sounds interesting. I can't decide if I would like it or not. I'll bet lots of people would, though.
