Do you have any special Thanksgiving Day traditions that you do each year with your kiddos?  If so, what are they?  How did this tradition come to be?

We always write down what we are Thankful for before we eat dinner.  It's nice to look back on those year after year!

I've also had the boys make decorations for the table too.  It gives them something fun to do in the days before Thanksgiving (when there is usually no school and they are going a bit stir crazy!) and it makes the table look fun and festive.  :)
