Have them keep jour- nals. THANKSGIVING TRAVEL Nothing beats getting your extended family together for Thanksgiving. It is a great time to catch up and laugh about old times. The only aggravat- ing thing, of course, is actually trav- eling to meet up. There are already stories of travel nightmares in the news two days be- fore Thanksgiving. This can be particu- larly troubling if you have kids who be- come easily bored. In these days of the Internet and video games, the average child seems to have an attention span of about 30 sec- onds. If a glassy-eyed child killing things on a screen is not your idea of good thing, what alternatives do you have? Giving your child a writing journal is a great way to keep them busy without resorting to violent video games. For many kids, the only way to truly get their attention on a Thanksgiving trip is to get them involved. The best method for doing this is to give them a journal and ask them to keep notes on everything they see. At the end of the day, they should be encouraged to write a journal entry about what happened during the day. It will give them an outlet for their thoughts, promote good writing skills and pre- serve family experiences they would otherwise forget with time. A good journal for kids will combine a number of characteristics. First, it should be compact. Second, it should have a case to protect it from rain, spills and just because kids will be kids. Third, the journal should con- tain blank areas for notes, doodles and so on. Finally, the journal should contain cue spaces to remind chil- dren to pay attention to certain things and write them down. Cues should include: 1. Who went on the family vaca- tion, 2. Places visited and why they are important, 3. The most memorable experi- ence each day, 4. New friends made and contact information for them, 5. Which family members were pre- sent, and 6. Impressions. As time passes, the family vacations journals will remind your kids of past trips. Memories fade with time, even for kids. By keeping a journal, kids will open their eyes to things around them, enhancing your Thanksgiving family gathering. Hopefully, it will also keep them busy and away from video games, at least for some of the time. 9 - 1989 - The 27.9 mile Berlin Wall was opened up after standing for 28 years 10 - 1775 - The US Ma- rine Corps was estab- lished as part of the US Navy. 11 - 1938 - Irving Ber- lin’s God Bless America was first performed (becoming the most re- quested patriotic favorite of Americans) 22 - 1935 - Trans-Pacific airmail service began 23 - 1963 - Three days after his assassination, John F Kennedy was bur- ied with full military honors at Arlington National Cemetery 11

Tips to Take Great Holiday Pictures Source: greatholidaypictures.asp You don’t want the same picture that you took last year, and you want it to look different than Uncle Joe’s picture when he is standing right next to you. Here are some ideas to help you take great pictures this holiday that everyone in the family will be able to cherish and remember. 1. Use high resolution. For photos that you do not want to print, low resolution is great! But if you are taking a picture that you are going to want to print out for your al- bum or scrap- book, or to give as a gift to your mother for her upcoming birthday, you will get a better printed image with a higher resolution. If you need to buy an extra memory card so that you have the storage room, splurge on yourself and buy one. 2: Get close up. Create impact by getting up close. The picture will look to- tally different with your subject up close and personal than it will with them just fitting into the background. 3. Don’t use the “Auto” set- ting. Take control of your camera and your pictures. Doing it manually you are likely to get different and more interesting shots. For portraits, use low aperture – around 2.8. For landscapes, use high aperture – around 16. Don’t be afraid to experiment. 4. Change your angle. Don’t just stand in front of your subject. Try kneeling down in front of your subject, laying down and taking the picture from the ground, or standing up high on a chair or on a second floor balcony. Have your fam- ily stand on the stairs and take pictures from the side as well as the bottom of the stairs. 5. Don’t center your picture. There is no rule that your friend or family member have to be in the center of the picture. You can get a great picture by an- gling it so that your subject is to the left or right side. You can have him sit on top of a sturdy table and take the picture so that the table is included and your subject is just in the top frame of the picture. Play around, experi- ment and have fun!

Add to that all of the wonderful food and it’s easy to see why Thanksgiving is one of the most popular holidays. Unfortunately, if you’re the one host- ing a Thanksgiving dinner, all of the preparations can be very stressful. Well, not anymore! The reality is most of us already know how to plan the perfect Thanksgiving, all it takes is a little extra preparation. Just follow these five easy steps and your holiday stress will be a thing of the past: Step 1 – Several weeks before Thanksgiving, start planning your menu. You’ll need to decide what kind of turkey or other meat you’re going to have (grilled, deep fried or baked) and you will also want to shop for any items you can get in advance, like rolls, pie mixes, frozen goods, etc. It’s also a good idea to put up your outside decorations and start thinking about how you’re going to decorate inside. Finally, cook double sized meals now and freeze them so that you don’t have to worry about cooking family meals the week of Thanksgiving. Step 2 – The weekend before Thanksgiving, go ahead and do any major cleaning that you will need to do, especially if you will be having guests staying overnight. Double check your menu and go shopping for any items you haven’t gotten yet. If anyone asks what they can bring, it’s usually best to ask for desserts or fin- ger food since they’re easy to trans- port. You’ll also want to prep your kitchen by removing any unnecessary clutter since you will need all the counter space you can get. Step 3 – A few days before Thanks- giving, check your menu again and make sure you aren’t missing any vi- tal ingredients. You should also go ahead and make anything that can be done ahead of time such as pies or dips for veggie trays. It’s also a good idea to prep your fresh produce by chopping and bagging them. You can also do this with casserole ingredients sothat on Thanksgiving all the prep work is done. Step 4 — The day before Thanksgiving, go ahead and make the mashed potatoes and put together any veggie trays if you are having any. It’s also a good idea to set the table, so that you aren’t scrambling to do this at the last minute. Set out all of your plates, wine glasses, silverware, placemats and napkins. Step 5 – On Thanksgiving Day, spend some time in the morning put- ting together any casseroles you prepped for earlier. You also want to be sure to allow plenty of time for cooking the main course since it will take the longest. Plan for the meat to finish cooking roughly an hour before you intend to serve the meal, that way if it takes longer than expected you still have plenty of time. That’s it! It may seem like planning and preparing the perfect Thanksgiv- ing dinner is stressful and over- whelming, but it really isn’t. With a little smart planning, you can break down all of the preparation into man- ageable pieces so that your Thanks- giving dinner this year goes off with- out a hitch! Happy Thanksgiving!
