There is just one special event that you'll want to focus on this weekend. It’s something that you could make into a family tradition, if it’s not already.
Tonight, I want you to join your community at…
Light Up Louisville!
Running in it’s 32nd year, the city of Louisville’s annual celebration is moving to 4th Street Live! (where they’ve set up an actual ICE RINK!) and will feature a festival of lights set to music starting at 4th and Main Streets all the way to Fourth Street Live!. The 40 Nights of Lights celebration will feature a nightly show of synchronized lights and music.
To start to the festivities, you won’t want to miss the Winter Wonderland Parade at 6pm. The procession will travel down Liberty to 4th Street and then to Main Street. It’s Louisville’s only nighttime parade- so exciting!
Oh… and let’s not forget that Santa will be arriving at 8:30pm right before the music, lights, and fireworks begin!
So, kick off your family’s holiday celebrations by joining us tonight at Light Up Louisville!

This might sound corny, but I promise you won’t be sorry if you do this--
After everyone gets seated around your Thanksgiving table, tell them that you’re starting a new tradition this year (if you don’t already do this) before everyone digs in, and you want each person to say something that they are thankful for.
Don’t give them the option to “pass” on this opportunity; just “skip” them until they have figured out something to say.
…or if you think your family will be too shy to say it out loud...

I was a (young!) teenager when Lady Diana married Prince Charles. I sat glued to the TV, watching the ceremony, the pageantry, and … the dress.
When I heard that “Diana: A Celebration” was coming to the Frazier History Museum, I had to go and take my daughter, Autumn (age 10). To watch Diana’s dress on TV was great. To see the real thing, to walk 25 feet along the train, to see all the tiny pearls that were hand stitched, to see the tiara that topped her head - now that was magnificent.
In the October/November issue of Today’s Family magazine, parent-writer Terri Skipworth managed to conquer “The Quiet Challenge.” Below is a little bit of what her family experienced. Oh, and don’t forget to check out her complete article by clicking on the picture of Today's Family magazine on the left.
What I have learned over the years of having children is to never expect calm. There is always going to be something putting our already hectic schedule in turmoil. My thought behind wanting to do “The Quiet Challenge” was...

When I was a student and still single, my spiritual life looked much different than it does now that I'm married, pregnant, and have three other kids ages 5 and under. Back then, I could spend hours of time studying, journaling, praying, and more. It's not that I wasn't busy...
