Grandparents Day Activities

Grandparents Day is a national holiday that falls every year on the Sunday after Labor Day. It is a wonderful day to celebrate family, look at old family photographs, and have grandparents share their special skills and talents like quilting, cooking, or story-telling. Have them help you preserve your family history by putting together a family tree and ask them about events that happened to your ancestors. There are all sorts of stylish family trees being created these days! Check out all of the lovely modern genealogy designs from My Tree and Me:

Family Tree

If you don’t have your dear ones close by, you can always send them a gourmet chocolate cookie basket via cookie delivery, and don’t forget your local nursing home—stop by for a visit with your children as a fun way to show grandparents in your area just how much they are appreciated regardless of who’s grandparents they are. Your kids can sing them the official song of Grandparents Day: “A Song For Grandma and Grandpa“—or you could always serenade them with a nice solo…

Forget-me-not

Your elderly neighbors will certainly be excited to see that you’ve remembered them on Grandparents Day if you show up to their door holding a tray brimming with gourmet cookies and a vase of some fresh Forget-me-not flowers (the official Grandparents Day flower)!

Happy Grandparents Day!

Labor Day: Take the Day Off

Labor Day

Labor Day, one of those holidays that result in a lovely 3-day weekend and allow us to rest from our labors. Hopefully you have something stress-free planned (or unplanned) for this weekend. Put your feet up and soak in a peaceful day-off (seriously, try not to do anything work-related), and while you’re at it indulge in a bit of heaven from yours truly—gourmet chocolate cookies!

Any fun Labor Day weekend plans out there?

Wishing you a Happy Labor Day!

Celebrate Parents Day! {July 25th}

Duggar Family

Jim Bob & Michelle Duggar were elected as the 2009 National Parents of the Year and if you’re oppressively thinking, “Great, we can hardly handle our one child, there’s no way we could ever be nominated for such a grand award.” Sulk no longer because there are plenty of other things you and your significant other can do to celebrate Parents Day without having to worry about such awards that don’t include an entire camera lens full of your 19 children. In fact, it seems on days such as this that the customary thing to do is get away from those progeny that you so love for a nice, well-deserved date night.

Date Night Ideas For Parents, Soon-To-Be Parents, and Aspirational Parents:
P.S. These are some great ideas to “treat” your parents to if you are those lovely little progeny mentioned previously.

•    Host a costumed Murder Mystery Dinner. Serve gourmet chocolate cookies, of course.
•    Get in some laughs at a Comedy Club.
•    Rustle up some grub at a Rodeo. Wranglers with large belt-buckles and tucked in shirts a must.
•    Take a Swing Dancing Class.
•    Enjoy peasant-fair at Medieval Times.
•    Check out the latest exhibit at your Museum.

Happy Parents Day!

Talk About a Sweet Thanksgiving!

Autumn Duo

Autumn Duo

A golden succulent turkey, luscious potatoes prepared just the way you like them with loads of silky butter, pies for miles (but somehow they don’t last very long), and of course, that marvelous stuffing…what a day! A day to give thanks for all the wealth of abundance that we enjoy, whatever that abundance may be: love, laughter, happiness, time with family, food, energy and health, monetary means, or perhaps opportunities of progression. We all have abundance in some way or another. Thanksgiving Day is a perfect day to remember just how much we really do have.

Delight friends, family, and associates with an elegantly packaged box brimming with deliciousness and let them just know how much you appreciate them! Can’t make it to Thanksgiving at your family’s home this year? Send them a sweet “Wish I were there!” box of gourmet cookies to brighten their holiday while you’re away—not that cookies could ever replace you, but perhaps it can help to ‘smooth things over’ with the family!

A beautiful way to display your desserts is by presenting one of the Heidi’s Heavenly Cookies signature heirloom trays that serve from 25 to 50 people, starting at $35. Each have an assortment of delicious cookie flavors including: Toffee Chocolate Chip, Chocolate Chip, Oatmeal Raisin, Chocolate Eclipse, and others depending on the size of  your chosen platter.

Enjoy your Thanksgiving festivities and celebrations with a touch of sweetness!
