Think your Thanksgiving is going to be hectic? Jon and Kate Gosselin, the stars of TLC's reality series Jon & Kate Plus 8 (Mondays, 9 P.M. ET), will be wrangling their eight kids: 7-year-old twins and 3-year-old sextuplets. Multitasking matriarch Kate offers her strategies:

LET THE RELATIVES HELP One year after dinner, I brought down eight pairs of pajamas and told the adults: "Dress 'em!" It's the quickest I've ever gotten the kids pajama-ed and ready for bed.

USE NAP TIME WISELY I buy a 25-lb. turkey. We eat around 1 o'clock and then I do four dishwasher loads while the kids nap.

COUNT YOUR BLESSINGS Any day we all get to spend together is a great day.
