Growing up, Thanksgiving was my favorite holiday. (Well, maybe it tied with Christmas.) I loved the parade, the food, the football, the family, the big feast... all of it. We have a new tradition that involves making a Thanksgiving snacks that the kids will gobble up.

She had to keep us occupied; it seemed to take forever for the turkey to be carved and plated. That's why she also made sure that there were plenty of fun snacks ready to keep cranky kiddos contentedly smiling.
