Norman Rockwell Thanksgiving

I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but the days of Norman Rockwell's Thanksgiving no longer exist. It did when I was growing up in the sixties and early seventies. I can still smell my grandma's turkey and ham wafting through her kitchen. I can still hear the chattering of all my cousins. I miss those days. They stopped after my dad passed away and my mom and I moved three-thousand miles away from Thanksgiving.

After I got married and had kids, I tried to give them a heirloom Thanksgiving with all the trimmings. It didn't go as planned. Times were rough for myself and my first husband. With four children we barely made ends meet. My kids never had a Norman Rockwell Thanksgiving.

As time passed, kids grew up and went there own way. Now it's me, hubby,daughter, and grandson. We spend Thanksgiving, just the four of us around a tiny table wishing for that Norman Rockwell Thanksgiving.

It seems the older your children get the less they care about Thanksgiving. It's more about the food, playing video games, or watching football on T.V. The true meaning of Thanksgiving went out the door with yesterday's parents. It's our fault. We have become a society of fast-paced, let's get it over with Thanksgivings.

I want my grandson to experience a Norman Rockwell Thanksgiving, but he probably never will. My family is scattered about and the excuses are never ending. There is now a hustle and bustle that keeps my family from that Norman Rockwell Thanksgiving. What's your excuse?

Enter his gates with thanksgiving and his courts with praise; give thanks to him and praise his name. Psalms 100:4 NIV

AlternaVites Kids Review

Posted by Debra Ann Elliott at 9:05 AM 5 comments
Awhile back I received a box of alternaVitesKids to try and then review. The box contained 30 individually wrapped packets in raspberry cotton candy flavor. I though wow a new way to get my 8 year old grandson to take his vitamins.

My grandson hated to alternaVites Kids. I thought no biggie. He's 8, he hates anything good for him.

I tried them myself. It's a quick-melting powder you sprinkle on your tongue. 1st thing, no great taste for me personally. I don't like a medicine taste in my mouth. 2nd thing, it left a bitter after taste in my mouth.

While my family did not like the taste, you may want to judge for yourself. 

alternaVites Kids® contains 17 essential vitamins and minerals specially formulated for children ages 4 and up.   Designed with both you and your children in mind, alternaVites Kids is remarkable not only for what it does contain, but also for what it doesn’t.
alternaVites Kids:
  • Melts in your mouth
  • Comes in 2 awesome flavors – strawberry bubblegum & raspberry cotton candy
  • One packet per day
  • Has 0 grams of sugar
  • Free of aspartame and high fructose corn syrup
  • Contains no artificial sweeteners, colors, flavors or preservatives
  • Has no animal products or by-products
  • Does not contain egg, milk, peanut, tree nuts, wheat, soy, fish or shellfish*
  • Certified kosher pareve
alternaVites Kids’ crystal powder makes it one of the most versatile vitamin products on the market.  Specially designed to fit easily into the way your family lives today, alternaVites Kids can be taken in so many ways.  Our favorite way is to simply sprinkle alternaVites Kids slowly onto the tongue, where it melts quickly.  However, you can also mix it into yogurts, puddings or smoothies, sprinkle it on top of fruit, lick it off a spoon – or be creative! The options are endless.
What’s more? You can rest assured you’re giving your children a high quality, potent multi loaded with the nutrients they need and without the additives they don’t.  Now there are no more reasons to give your children chalky chewables or gummies that are high in sugar, low in nutrients and can stick to their teeth.  Now there are no more excuses not to take vitamins with alternaVites Kids!
*However, we encourage all parents of children with food allergies or sensitivities to consult with their child’s doctor/pediatrician before use.
