Giving thanks at the Kiddie Table

The new Lifetime Kiddie Table Sweepstakes has reminded me of some fond memories. My mother came from a family of 8 children, so when her side of the family gets together for holidays many of us cousins were told to sit at the kiddie table... usually a Lifetime adjustable height table. When I was finally big enough to sit at a table where I could swing my legs I was ecstatic to say the least. But as the years passed, I started to look at the kid's table again with a little more fondness. Being one of the only female cousins my age, I had a serious shortage of friends at these occasions. So I decided to start sitting at the kiddie table again. When you are in your teens and you start paying attention to children you get an instant fan base. After this move I became a family celebrity. You may laugh, but it's true. When I was elected student body VP at Weber State University they all asked for autographed campaign posters. Though I doubt they still have them now, the friendships created at the kiddie table will stay with me forever. In fact, I'll see all those cousins in a few weeks for Thanksgiving. They have graduated from the kiddie table now. Most of them have their own cell phones and boyfriends and are dressing much cooler than me. But every now and then I see a few of them return to the kiddie table for a visit... and that makes me smile. Do you have memories of the kiddie table? Please share!

National Basketball Day
Today is unofficially National Basketball Day. It was on November 6, 1861 that James Naismith was born. Thirty years later, Naismith was a young physical education teacher at a YMCA in Massachusetts with bored students who needed an indoor athletic distraction during the winter. Naismith decided to nail two peach baskets to the balcony at both ends of a gymnasium. He divided his students into teams and they attempted to toss a ball into the basketsthe game of basketball was born. According to notes kept by Naismith about the first "Basket Ball" game, the game was played with nine players on each team using a soccer ball. Today, even though the rules and equipment have changed slightly, basketball is played by more than 300 million people worldwide, making it one of the most popular team sports.

2012 Plans Revealed at Semi-Annual Corporate Meeting
This past Saturday was a day we all look forward to here at Lifetime all year long - it was our semi-annual corporate meeting. Yes, it requires us giving up a couple hours on our Saturday, but it's worth it! First of all, it's always great to see about 1,000 of our employees gathered together at one time.
