My friend, and fellow busy working Mom, reminded me last week that we volunteered to host the 4K Thanksgiving party. Panic! My face not dissimilar from that of Linda Hamilton in Children of the Corn
Brainstorming, ideas burning up our e-mail accounts, we decide to host a corn themed party. An opportunity to educate our children. From the Native Americans who introduced this crop to the pilgrims...to the farmers who tend present day crops.
Preparation of corn themed party favors.
Corn pops and marshmallows. An aggregate of high fructose corn syrup products...we'll ignore that part of the corn story.
