Santa’s reindeer pull Santa’s sleigh around the world and back on Christmas Eve, but what are they up to the rest of holiday season? Like you, Santa’s helpers are hosting and attending holiday parties, working out and getting into the holiday spirit. Dasher FitBit Flex · Dasher is clearly the runner of the group. Strong, athletic and a natural-born leader. He wants to be the best and fastest reindeer. · He uses his FitBit Flex to track his heart rate, calories distance and speed while training in the off-season. The bracelet connects to his smartphone and tablet via Bluetooth, where he can see his stats in real-time. · The FitBit app helps him keep track of what he eats and drinks, making sure he receives enough fiber and eggnog, and gives insight into how well he sleeps at night. Doner LG G Watch · The über-fashionable Doner is the trendsetter of the group. Always looking for the latest and greatest, Doner was quick to snag the LG G Watch. · Doner’s favorite party trick is using his smartwatch to answer questions through Google voice search. Just say “Ok Google”, and follow it with a question to search for anything, from the score of today’s football game to flight information, even directions. · This Android-Wear-powered smartwatch gives you timely notifications based on your Google Calendar, Gmail account, web searches and travel patterns, making it a fashionable and valuable asset. Rudolph Philips Hue Connected Light Bulb Starter · Rudolph’s tree (and nose) isn’t the only thing well-lit this year. He picked up the Philips Friends of Hue Connected Light Bulb Starter to keep the mood festive year-round, but especially during the holiday. · Rudolph’s Hue Connected Light Bulbs are usually set to green or red, but this bulbs can be programmed to turn any color you’d like when the holidays are over using the Hue by Philips app. · Simply screw in the bulbs and plug in the bridge to create a festive ambience when entertaining guests over the holidays. JBL Pulse · When Rudolph wants to entertain all of the other reindeer or just jam out before hitting the sleigh-way, he syncs his smartphone to the JBL Pulse. · This wireless Bluetooth speaker puts on a festive light show that will pulse to the beat of Santa Baby, Jingle Bell and Rudolph the Red-Nose Reindeer. · Trust me, when your friends see this, all they’ll want for Christmas is your cool speaker. Orbotix Ollie · Rudolph may be old, but he’s still a kid at heart! His favorite tech toy is Ollie, the fastest remote controlled robot on the market. · This awesome new robot can spin, drift, flip and reach up to 14 miles per hours. · This is perfect for kids (and dads!) who love to skateboard. It pairs instantly with your smartphone or tablet and you can take Ollie outdoors to perform some amazing stunts or run him through obstacle courses.
To help the rest of us who are still in our pajamas when the in-laws call from 15 minutes away, here’s five cleaning fixes to get you and your home company-ready FAST: 1. It’s all-hands-on-deck for every member of your family in the house! Everyone needs to report to the kitchen and take on a task from the chore chart. Make sure the main bathroom, entry way and living room have clutter cleared and counters wiped down. This is not the season to prove you’re a super woman! Ask for help nicely, and demand it if necessary! 2. Be prepared this time of year, and keep slice and bake chocolate chip cookies or cinnamon rolls in your refrigerator. Preheat the oven, put the treats in and start a pot of coffee or tea. 3. Get yourself dressed! No reasonable person expects fancy for unscheduled visits. Comfortable jeans paired with a ball cap and sweatshirt work just fine! 4. Dock your iPod STAT and set the volume between low and medium. Classic holiday songs or something milder than your kids’ beloved Gangnam Style will help you relax and is a great background for your guests. 5. Take a quick walk through and make sure toilet paper and clean hand towels are in the bathroom and dirty clothes and shoes are stashed out of sight!

Turtle is a 10-month old puppy, Chihuahua mix (there's an under-bite in the ancestry), and VERY energetic. Hey, he's a puppy. He was running around exploring everything in the house, every nook and cranny, under end tables, etc. From 2 until about 6. Maybe it was just being in a house with two people to love on and three dogs who were trying to figure out what he is. He's a sweetie but displayed a high energy level. He will get in your lap, but not necessarily stay there -- although he gives a lot of doggie kisses in a short period. He washed my glasses (outer side) three times. Since he's still a puppy, he will need a lot of care and socialization, although he seemed to be interested in our dogs

The kitchen is the heart of your home… it’s where you try out new recipes, sit down for family dinner and where everyone gathers during parties. Susan Johnson, with Kitchen Tune-up, is here to help you get your kitchen ready for the holiday season and become more functional in 2015. What are some tips and products we can use to make our kitchen more organized and work for us? One of the first things we hear from clients is that they need more cabinet space; but they haven’t assessed the space they already have. We first look at de-cluttering and improving access. Get rid of those old spices or that serving dish you never use. You might find that you have two or three of the same item and can donate those extras to Goodwill. Next, make the most of the space you have; roll-out trays, updated lazy susans, shelving and half-moon pivots all maximize the space in deep drawers or cabinets. (props). Then, if you still need more space, you can add more cabinets or replace your existing ones with deeper versions that extend to the ceiling. What about appliances…thoughts on storing those? A few years ago there was a trend to build Appliance Garages that sit on your counter top and hide your appliances. Often, removing that is one of the first things we are requested to do. They take up precious counter space and today’s appliances look so good there’s no need to hide them. What about the outside of the cabinets…how do we update them without investing a fortune? The most basic thing to do is give them a good cleaning. I’d avoid using heavy cleaning products and just use a damp cloth and a little elbow grease. Products can actually cause build up. Also, make sure you dry them completely. Other options include: - A Professional Cleaning where we come in and use a patented system to get rid of dirt and grime. Prices vary based on size, number of cabinets, if they are stained or painted, etc. … - You can update the look of your cabinets without replacing them by adding new doors or simply changing the hardware (props) - And then, of course, you can get custom cabinets made so you KNOW they’ll meet your exact needs. This can even be done in about a week.

I CAN! of Arkansas and its programs are inspired by I CAN! Dance class, which began when 2- year-old Katie Mayberry - born with spina bifida and mobile through the use of a wheelchair - asked her mother if she could take a dance class like her big sister, Ellie. Her mom, Julie, replied, "When you turn three." Julie thought Katie would forget about it. When Katie turned three she asked her mom again and Julie knew she had to find other children with disabilities to form a dance class. When asked why she didn't just tell Katie that she couldn't take dance, Julie commented, "I simply couldn't squash her dreams. I couldn't tell her that she couldn't aspire to 'be.'" Based on the Bible verse from Philippians 4:13 "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me," the first class began in 2005 with two students, both in wheelchairs. It has now grown to nine full classes. Each class has approximately ten children, ages four to adult, with disabilities including spina bifida, Down's syndrome, cerebral palsy, autism and other developmental delays. The classes also include dancing "Buddies." These are children, ages ten to adult, who assist with children in need of one-on-one attention. Some need help by moving their arms and wheelchairs, while others need help focusing their attention. Some of the buddies are siblings to the children, allowing these families to enjoy an activity together.
This Thursday, Riverfest is throwing it back to its early days by offering ticket prices so low, they're practically free. Beginning Dec. 4, special Festival 4-Paks – three-day admission passes for four individuals, along with $20 in RiverMoney – may be purchased online for just $40. "These Festival 4-Paks are going to go fast, and once they're gone, they're gone," said DeAnna Korte, Riverfest executive director. "We are committed to our Riverfest fans, and making it affordable to everyone continues to be a priority. This promotion is a particularly great option for families, who may otherwise find the event cost-prohibitive. Of course, we will continue to offer free admission to children 6 and younger." Riverfest is Arkansas's largest and most popular music, arts and food festival. "We are grateful to all of our sponsors," said Korte. "Their financial contributions make an event of this size possible and allow us to offer incredible admission deals like this." The festival is scheduled for Memorial Day weekend, May 22-24, and will feature music and activities in Julius Breckling Riverfront Park, Clinton Center Park, Heifer International Campus and the vibrant River Market District in downtown Little Rock. Musical headliners will be announced beginning March 2015. Quantities are limited for Festival 4-Paks, so the public is encouraged to act fast.
This week's pet of the week is Bob. He is a 6 year old Rott/Hound mix who we rescued as a stray. Sounds like most of the other dogs that we bring in but when Bob was brought in, our amazing Doc felt a hard mass on his neck and after doing X-Rays, had revealed that Bob had multiple bullets in his neck. Bob had miraculously survived multiple gun shot wounds! He is a super loving dog, very calm, sweet, happy, and rides great in the car and will be a great addition to anyone's family. Bob deserves a chance to live the life a dog should. Bob is such a great dog who is more than deserving of a home which is why he is making his encore appearance!
Mass Enthusiasm, a full-service marketing communications agency in Little Rock, is contributing $1,000 to the Single Parent Scholarship Fund of Pulaski County to launch the Give with ME campaign at 10 a.m. at 200 Rivermarket Ave., Suite 100 in Little Rock on Tuesday, December 2. Mass Enthusiasm's founder and president, Chris McMillen, was a recipient of a scholarship from SPSF of PC when he was attending college, working full time and raising his five-year-old son, Aidan. To help another single parent realize his or her dream of success, McMillen and Mass Enthusiasm are contributing $1,000 to the fund, which is enough to pay for one parent's tuition for one semester. The goal of the Give with ME campaign is to encourage others to contribute whatever amount they choose directly to SPSF of PC to assist other single parents in paying for tuition, books, utilities, groceries, rent, childcare, transportation and a host of other needs that single parents may not be able to afford. "It was the hardest time of my life," McMillen says. "I had no idea how I was going to do it all - raise Aidan, work, go to class, study, afford rent and living expenses. The scholarship I got from Single Parent Scholarship Fund of Pulaski County meant one less thing for me to worry about, and it helped me realize the sacrifice of that time is why I enjoy the success I have today."

Candy Apple is a really cute black lab puppy who is almost three months old. Candy and her four siblings were found as strays and the Humane Society took all five puppies in on October 6th. All of Candy's siblings have since been adopted and this little girl is ready to find her forever home. Candy is a little shy when meeting new people, but she warms up very quickly. She really loves being around other dogs and seems to be more comfortable with another dog close by. Like most puppies, she is playful, curious and a lot fun! The Humane Society will be closed to the public on Thanksgiving day, but the shelter will be open on Friday and sweet Candy will be there waiting to be adopted.

Safe Kids Arkansas is led by Injury Prevention Center at Arkansas Children's Hospital, which provides dedicated and caring staff, operation support and other resources to assist in achieving our common goal: keeping your kids safe. Based on the needs of the community, this coalition implements evidence-based programs, such as car-seat checkups, safety workshops and sports clinics, that help parents and caregivers prevent childhood injuries. You never know when or if a crash may occur. It only takes a moment to protect your child from being hurt or killed. Rear-Facing: Children should ride rear-facing until they are 2 years of age or until they reach the upper weight and height limit of their car seat. The American Academy of Pediatrics says to keep your child rear-facing as long as possible to keep them safer. Check your car seat. Some seats can stay rear-facing up to 35 pounds. Forward-Facing with Harness: Children should ride in a forward-facing seat with a harness until they outgrow it (usually at around 4 years of age and about 40 pounds). Booster Seat: Children should sit in a booster seat until the adult seat belt fits correctly. The seat belt fits correctly if it lies across the upper thighs (not the stomach) and the shoulder belt lies across the shoulder and chest (not the neck). Seat Belt for Life! Children should ride in the back seat until they are 13 years old. If adults buckle up, they are much more likely to buckle up their child. Set an example of safe driving and riding by buckling up on every trip!

The holiday season is here and with it comes lots of opportunities to indulge at parties and family gatherings! While you can’t always control what’s on the buffet over Thanksgiving, you can control what you eat at work. Tip #1 – Bring your lunch. While it’s an obvious choice, spend extra time at the beginning of the week planning what you’ll bring for lunch during the week. Pack a lunch that includes veggies, protein and fiber. Tip #2 – Keep healthy snacks at your desk. If you’re hungry, don’t force yourself to wait until a prescribed mealtime. Instead, make sure you have healthy snacks on hand that can be consumed in small amounts Tip #3 – Walk when you can. Sitting at a desk all day wreaks havoc on our bodies – muscles get tight and our posture is bad. Walking or stretching is also a great way to fight boredom – a time when many people would turn to food. Make it a point to walk and/or stretch every hour. Set an alarm and bookmark a website with easy to follow stretches or exercises that you can do at your desk. Tip #4 – Drink up! Drinking water throughout the day keeps you hydrated and feeling full. Dehydration is the cause of many health problems from headaches to dizziness, to feeling sluggish or weak. Keep a large refillable glass/bottle at your desk and sip water throughout the day. Tip #5 – Stay engaged. Being at a desk all day can foster boredom no matter how exciting your job is. Boredom can lead to mindless, constant snacking and feeling lethargic. Stay engaged and fight boredom by following the steps above.
