President's Day celebrations

President's Day is next Monday and while I usually don't post about our family fun nights until after we have had our fun { just in case something like a dog/ child gets sick or someone calls and asks us out for dinner or to a ballgame:) }

I have had a few people ask me to throw out my ideas for holidays before hand in case they want some inspiration...therefor Be inspired:

The Menu:
Lincoln logs ( pretzels)
Woodrow Wilson Whip ( dip)
Benjamin Franklin Burritos
Ronald Reagan Rice
William H Taft Tea
"I cannot tell a lie" George Washington cherry pie

Our crafts:

We are going to trace our hand from elbow to fingers and put it on paper like a tree. Then color green at the top and fingerprint cherries for a cherry tree.

We will also take coins and do a rubbing to make a copy of Mt. Rushmore

Activities:

Pin the hat on Abe :)

Cyber scavenger hunt... I will have a piece of paper folded up. Everyone selects a paper and unfolds it to reveal a president. You must then Go on a cyber hunt to find out the questions listed about him and draw a picture:
The questions are:

Birth date
Which President
Fun Fact
State he is from
Wife's name

We will either watch a movie...I am still trying to decide which one or play a game..either hi ho cheerio, for Essie or Fact or Crap ( ya know not tellin a lie) game

There ya have it! Family Fun Night President's edition.. Feb 2011

I have seen the commercials and understood the concepts but never got around to buying the program I got lucky my nephew bought it and used it once said it was too P90x Reviews hard, So he gave it to me. I was a wrestler in high school and college and boy did this bring back memories of the workouts . After about a 7-10 sessions my back was feeling better shoulder pain started going away. I use a total gym for the pull ups to the point where I��m almost vertical still getting the effects of the pull ups but less stress if you have shoulder injury. Yoga felt funny but sticking with all aspects of the program. During the workouts I forget about everything else that is a nice benefit Beats by Dre Headphones. I am 5��7�� and was 165lbs not too bad shape wife did say I had a slight beer belly. I��m now 154 stopped cold turkey the soft drinks and late night snacks. No I did not stop having an occasional beer on the sat or sunday watching sports Beats by Dre. But it is now nowhere near what it used to be 2-3 for the entire weekend vs a case before Beats by Dre Earphones. I started eating reg during the day snacks of vegetables light breakfast and lunch dinner fish and chicken Px90 Workout. push the fluids and protein drinks that I purchased. My weight stopped dropping but I��m getting stronger getting some definition in arms shoulders back, endurance better P90x Workout. Lets see what happens at the end of month 2 If anybody has ideas on diet as I did not get the diet from my nephew.
