Thanksgiving Food for Thought: Parade Triva

Photo: Michelle V. Agins/The New York Times

Found in the 2008 November issue of Real Simple:

"17,320 cubic feet...The amount of helium it takes to inflate the Hello Kitty balloon in the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade. The pneumatic feline, the parade's largest balloon in terms of helium capacity, stands 33 1/2 feet tall and 45 feet long. This fall marks the store's 150th birthday and its 82nd parade."

Soulful Sunday: Attitude of Gratitude

In preparation for Thanksgiving, our little family is starting a new tradition. In the future it would be nice to start this on November 1st, but starting today will work this year. Each day we will take a moment to write down one thing we are grateful for, and place the slip of paper in a jar (we have a glass pumpkin, any container will do). On Thanksgiving day, we will read all the notes.

Five things I have always wanted to do. In no particular order.

E just woke up, I will post the rest in a while...I am back, sorry about that.

1.) Live in New York
2.) Visit Ireland
3.) Own a boutique
4.) Celebrate Christmas in a Snowy location (you don't see much snow in Texas!)
5.) Visit New England in the Fall

What is on your "Five Things List"?

Have a wonderful day!

Skip Hop: Day to Night Baby Log

This is a fantastic product! I remember fumbling around in the dark, trying to find a pen, totally exhausted, recording E's feeding time and diaper status. The Day to Night Baby Log by Skip Hop would have made this process a lot easier.
