Thanksgiving is a time to enjoy being with family and reflecting on the blessings we have received.

And, of course, who can forget about the food?

Sometimes we can focus on making sure the turkey and stuffing are cooked to perfection, that the table is set, or that the house is clean and festive. I know, for me, having as many preparations done beforehand helps make the holiday a little less hectic. Such things as having the house decorated, place settings done, snacks and treats made, etc. before starting the Thanksgiving feast helps me to more fully enjoy season of family and gratitude.

Here are a few things that you can do now to get ready for the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday:
