I don't know about you… but I am really starting to look forward to enjoying a wonderful Thanksgiving dinner with my family! Maybe one of the reasons that I am getting so excited about both Thanksgiving and the Christmas holiday is because I have been hard at work on shooting some iVillage videos as a part of their Get Organized for the Holidays Challenge! What? You haven't signed up for this challenge yet? Well then let's get going please! Each day of the challenge you will receive an email with a daily task for you as well as a link to the full challenge post.

And every week I will share with you my Get Organized Challenge companion video where Amanda Rodriquez from Parenting BY Dummies and I share our tips on getting ready for the holidays!
Okay…. back to some great ideas I found this week around the web that will be perfect for Thanksgiving!
Something to Cook:
I have been making a sweet potato torte the last few years as part of my Thanksgiving menu, but this year I think I might want to mix it up a bit and offer this delicious-looking Sweet Potato Casserole instead! Thanks My Baking Addiction!
I want to make something for dessert on Thanksgiving that can be served in small bite-sized pieces and involves chocolate (to satisfy those that don't adore pumpkin pie)… and I think that these Salted Carmel Shortbread Bars from Annie's Eats fit the bill perfectly!
Something to Make:
Here are some great printables for the Thanksgiving Table! There is this fantastic activity mat, and several other fun items for you to use on Thanksgiving Day! These adorable printables can be printed for free from Whatever Dee Dee Wants!
