Thanksgiving is right around the corner! The holiday arrives a little earlier than usual due to the calendar - are you prepared? Be sure to follow these safety tips and guidelines to ensure a happy, healthy holiday meal.
Remember it is important to mix in a little activity with your turkey and pie. Consider having a family football game or scavenger hunt to get everyone moving. Even a group walk after dinner is a great way for everyone to get some physical activity - on Thanksgiving and every day! We live near a gorgeous county park with basketball and tennis courts, along with soccer fields galore and football fields. My favorite part of the park is the one and one half mile track around the perimeter. Most everyday, I walk three miles (2 laps). I hope to be able to get visiting family members motivated to join me at the park after the big meal! However, I've already told myself not to be terribly disappointed if my idea is met with growls of dismissal! LOL With this in mind, I'm going to rent THIS wonderful movie.
"Facing the Giants" is an inspirational movie of faith which I know my parents and brother will just love!
