TODAY’S CHALLENGE:  I can’t believe it’s the day before Thanksgiving!  Today, Prep any food you need for Thanksgiving dinner tomorrow.  Make those pies, and any other dish you can make ahead.  Pull out clothes everyone is wearing tomorrow…do any laundry that needs to be done!  I always like to snap a good family photo on Thanksgiving day.  After you finish all the prep work for tomorrow, sit down this evening and make a plan if you are planning to do any shopping this coming weekend!  You can find all the Black Friday ads online.  Pull out the lists you have made with who you need to buy for and see if there are deals on gifts on their lists this weekend!  Remember, Cyber Monday will be a good day for online deals too.

Have a Joyful Day and I’ll see you tomorrow!

TODAY’S CHALLENGE:  Check your Smoke Detector batteries and your actual smoke detectors.  Are they working well?  Please, Please, Please…make sure your family has an escape plan and a meeting place outside in case of a fire.  Talk about it and make sure your entire family is up to date and understands what to do in case of a fire.

Also…stock up on Vitamin C and Hand Sanitizer…it’s cold and flu season!  It’s a good time to remind you to take care of yourselves as we get busy during the Holiday Season.  Remind your family members to wash their hands more often and don’t touch your face while you are out and about!

Have a Joyful Day and I’ll see you tomorrow!

Hope you had a wonderful weekend!  Did any of you celebrate Thanksgiving over the weekend?  If so, I hope your day was filled with great food and great company!  And just a friendly reminder… this week is hard for some without family or loved ones.  Be tender, show grace to everyone around you.  You have no idea if there are battles someone is fighting.  Show love and kindness ALWAYS and even more so this week and as we enter the Holiday Season!

TODAY’S CHALLENGE:  Take a few minutes to write down what you would like to do in December.  We talked about this several days back, but I want to follow up and finish this list.  Here are some great suggestions for you.  Make a list, then check it off as you do them!

  • Decorate your home for Christmas
  • Take a Family Photo (I’m going to do a whole post on what pictures to make sure you don’t forget… soon!)
  • Drive through the neighborhoods in your town and look at Christmas Lights together! Make some hot chocolate, load everyone up and drive around and enjoy the beautiful scenery!
  • Make a Gingerbread house
  • Sing Christmas carols with your family, or better yet…go Caroling and sign for others!  Or visit a Nursing home and sign for the older people there.
  • Make baked goods to share with others
  • Choose a family in need and do something nice for them
  • Read the Christmas Story from the Bible together (many times, not just once!)
  • Watch Christmas Movies (what are your favorites?)
  • Find some coloring pages on Pinterest for your children to color and enjoy!  And YOU color too….I love coloring and find it so relaxing!
  • Play some Christmas Games…there are some really CUTE Bingo games on Pinterest.  It’s something easy that ALL ages can enjoy

Most of all, ENJOY the season.  What are some things you ALWAYS do in the month of December?  Share in the comments below!!

Have a Joyful Day and I’ll see you tomorrow!
