Little Hands, Big Helpers

I love that so much of the Thanksgiving preparation is child friendly: little hands can be very helpful with washing and peeling potatoes, tearing bread for stuffing, stirring cranberries, and doing some easy chopping. We were busy in the kitchen today getting all of our make-ahead recipes accomplished. Hubby is on for pie baking tomorrow morning. I'm hoping for a nice long run while the turkey cooks on what is supposed to be a beautiful day.

O come, let us sing unto the LORD: let us make a joyful noise to the rock of our salvation. Let us come before his presence with thanksgiving, and make a joyful noise unto him with psalms. For the LORD is a great God, and a great King above all gods. In his hand are the deep places of the earth: the strength of the hills is his also. The sea is his, and he made it: and his hands formed the dry land. O come, let us worship and bow down: let us kneel before the LORD our maker. —Psalm 95:1-6
