My family is large and they are all coming over tomorrow for Thanksgiving. While I'm cooking, serving and cleaning, I need to find a way to keep everyone entertained. While most adults will be chatting and watching football, the kids will be running wild and in order to keep my house from looking like a tornado went through I'd like to find some way to keep the kids entertained.
I'm thinking about getting this Bonce-N-Score Basketball game. It's small enough to fit in one area and everyone can play, they can even make teams and play against each other! You just grab one of the balls, bounce it off the trampoline and into the baskets above. I think they'll enjoy it.
If that doesn't work we can always play a family game. This 15-in-1 Game Center should have more than enough options for us. All your favorites are here - from chess and checkers to Mancala and Old Maid! It'll get the attention of the kids and the adults.
While I'm cooking I enjoy listening to Christmas music. Some may say it's too early to listen to Christmas music on Thanksgiving, but it puts me in the spirit. I got this Memorex Boombox, I pop in my favorite CD and cook away. It's the perfect size for my kitchen countertop and even plays the radio.
When dinner is done, the drinks are sure to be flowing at my house. I can never keep up on the ice! No matter how much you make, it seems to disappear. This Portable Ice Maker is perfect. Everyone will for surely have ice, cold drinks at my house on Thanksgiving night.
Happy Thanksgiving from the Heartland!

Emergency Car Kit
Well, unfortunately it's that time of year again in Minnesota. And it's cold, really cold. We tend to read those horrible stories about people getting stranded in their car for days at a time and I want to make sure I'm prepared if something terrible ever happens.
There's a few things you need to get your car ready for the brutal MN winters.
1. A warm blanket. When you're stranded and your car runs out of gas, you need to find a way to keep warm. Always keep a blanket in your car.
2. Mighty Jump Pro. Let's say your stuck and your car isn't starting and there is no one around to help jump your engine. This Mighty Jump Pro will come in awfully handy.
3. Always have warm gloves with you. Who knows if you'll have to get out of your vehicle to look for help, the last thing you need is frost bite.
5. Food. You can always eat snow to keep you hydrated but you could be stranded for days and you need food. Keep protein rich foods in your glove box.
Some more great tidbits on how to put together an emergency car kit, brought to you by Allstate.

Man Cave Madness!
Ever since my basement was finished I've been so excited to deck out my "man cave" with all the essentials. You can never have too many entertaining things for your man cave. I wanted a room where I could relax and where I could play, here are some of the items I purchased.
This Table Top Popcorn Maker is constantly popping popcorn. I throw in a movie and wait for a delicious bowl of popcorn, it's great, and taste just like the movie theater's.
A man cave wouldn't be a man cave without games! This Classic Arcade Game has everything! From • Pac Man®, Ms Pac-Man Reunion® • Donkey Kong®, Donkey Kong Jr® • Centipede® and Millipede® • Xevious®, Galaga® and Mappy® • Dig Dug® and Rally X®. The guys will love this one!
You can't have a man cave without a TV! This 40" is great for behind my bar. It has high-resolution 3D images that will astound you. Plus, it boasts state-of-the-art LED technology for a thin, attractive design.
I enjoy big over sized couches, but sometimes you just need a big Jaxx Sac! Check this thing out! It's huge, 3ft. high and 6ft. wide, I can't wait to take a nap on it.
I'm really excited for Christmas so I can ask for all the other items I want to fill my special area. What type of things do you have in your man cave?

Gifts Under $50!
Since I'm in the holiday spirit, I thought what a great time to write a blog on great Christmas gifts under $50. There are so many new items in the Heartland catalog that would make awesome holiday gifts, they're definitely worth talking about.
This Twister Flip Stunt Car is the sure to make your Christmas morning a hit. What kid doesn't want a remote controlled car? Especially one that no one else has. Grab hold of the remote control and let it rip across the floor. Then send it into a 360 degree fast spin, make it flip end-over-end, pop a wheelie and more. Features large rear wheels, futuristic styling lights up and handheld remote that lets you move it forward, backward, left, right & stop.
Who doesn't like games? This gift is endless for your family. It's a 15-in-1 game table! This
game center is crafted from wood & features one pullout drawer that keeps the individual game pieces neatly organized & ready to use and two slide-out interchangeable game tables. A great way to get the family together on game night.
Check this out! A Kansas City Railroad Pocket Watch, what a cool collectible.
Designed to commemorate the glory of the old west, it features a magnificently cut case and back that puts both sides of its precision quartz movement on display. Also features handsomely adorned silvertone bezel, sturdy butterfly hinge, Roman numeral dial, second hand and 26" chain and fob. Certificate of Authenticity included. Grandpa would love it.

Holiday Shopping Continued...
Last week I got an early start on my Christmas shopping and this week I plan on buying some more things to put under my tree. Every year gets harder and harder trying to find things that my kids will love and that wont break my bank. I have two teenagers and a young child so each year I get to shop for a variety of things.
For the teenagers I was thinking...
Maybe a new camera. This Flip Camera is pretty cool! And for only $19.99 I don't have to worry about my son breaking it on accident.
Or if I feel like spending a little more money, this USB Slide Camera also has all the features.
My youngest is obsessed with remote control anything, and loves trucks! I think he'll definitely enjoy this Ford F-150 R/C Truck.
My teenage daughter never seems to put her iPhone down, this charger station will be a great stocking stuffer for her.
Less than 6 weeks until Christmas, have you started shopping yet?
