5/18-We started our Facebook page first and was thrilled to have one.  A couple of weeks ago, when there was that issue with the heartbleed virus, we changed some settings and have had problems everyday since then with our page.  So, now we're having fun tweeting away @ daily@14suggestions.  We should be close to 100 now.  We try to tweet articles we find on the internet everyday that help parents 
 .
 Look around our website and if you have any comments or questions, please feel free to contact us.  We want to address topics and concerns that matter to you. Our email address is suggestions@dailydestinations.com.

TWEETING WHAT?

Welcome November:What are your family traditions for the week of Thanksgiving?
1.  As kids we use to have to clean a lot.  There was spring cleaning and there was Christmas break cleaning.
2.  This year we're cleaning for Thanksgiving and Christmas right now.  We're going to do a little each week.  By times New Year's Eve comes, we'll be ready to ring in the new year with cleaned out closets, nooks, corners, and plied places.




Thoughts of Thankfulness for the balance of the year:
1.  We celebrate family and life
2.  Were thankful for being born and raised in America inspite of its problems.
3.  Who doesn't like Godiva chocolate?
4.  We think the commercial with  2 children looking at Christmas ornaments who are talking about their unborn sister and the brother says he's not sure if she will make it for  Christmas because mom says "she's still cooking" is adorable
5. We're thankful for holiday traditions that have been preserved for generations that bind
families together
6.  We're thankful for Pinterest.  We'll be looking for craft projects to do over the holidays.
7. We were thankful we have been blessed to celebrate our 19th anniversary as a nuclear family unit.  My how time flies when you're having fun and experiencing life.
8. A warm bed, a roof over our heads, and a place to call home
9.  We like the positive message Special K 
Cereal commercials is advertising-The message is that all sizes are beautiful
10. Classic Christmas Movies
11.  We're thankful that we don't travel Thanksgiving Dinner
12.  We like all the Christmas is coming movies we looked forward to watching when
