Nothing. We will have about 15 recliners....some big screen televisions, laptops (we gotta be able to get on MMC) and an endless supply of popcorn.

There isn't even a textbook.

Who's in?
That sounds SO good ... can I bring some classic-era movies?

Evening. I've got a very laid-back week ahead of me. Work experience. I am working with my father. I won't be working with him, since my father works as a maintenance man and I will be working in the kitchen. Thursday is the day for me and my family to put up the Christmas tree and decorate the house with decorations and everything. I can't wait. Catch you later.

Good early Morning, Christmas family!!!!

Hope you all had a great Thanksgiving/weekend!!

It has been a great weekend so far~ I have not been around for a couple of days, and just caught up on all of your posts. They made me smile!

Thanksgiving was wonderful! Great food & company...and the Packers won!

Hubby & I have been busy bees putting up the remaining Christmas decorations (especially the tree, outdoor roof lights & village) and entertaining unexpected company whose flights were delayed. It has been crazy here, lol. This is my first chance to catch up.

Hope you all are doing well! Thinking of you all. Sending thoughts and prayers for those who need them! xo

Merry Christmas !!!!!!!!!

******** CHRISTMAS SEASON DAY 15 *******


Good Morning, Friends of the Christmas Season!

Well, this wonderful 2011 four-day Thanksgiving Weekend is about to draw to a close.
I hope it was a good one for each and every one of you.

But the count goes on.....
Days to Christmas Day: 28 (Would you believe -- FOUR WEEKS from today!)

Much warmer here this morning where we stand at 57 already, headed for a predicted high of 70 by this afternoon. REAL nice for late November in these parts.
(Three cheers for global warming!)

My family and I are about to head out and enjoy a breakfast buffet, then go by the NC Museum of Art to see their newly-opened Rembrant exhibit.
Should be a nice outing for the whole family. I'm looking forward to it.

Well, you have a Super Sunday, Everyone.
Enjoy the remainder of your Wonderous Weekend!

I believe that is the same advent calendar I have. It's a green cloth type with a mouse that you move? I think you have a picture posted here of it. It is so cute!

I want to see that Arthur movie. I am glad to hear it's good!

So we went to my aunt's house since it was only a mile away and that's where the majority of my tools are. It turned out to be her lower radiator hose. Once I had it changed my aunt wanted me to help her put up her Christmas tree. So I got it all put up and then headed to my sisters house to pickup a few things she had bought for me. She had just put her tree up and discovered that only half the lights were working. She wanted me to figure out why but I told her it wasn't worth it. Just go buy more lights and put them on it. So then I had to go with her to buy lights since my brother in law was going to a concert with his brother. When we got back from walmart I had to help her string the lights and then my mom helped her and the kids decorate it. So I left home at 11am and didn't get back home until after 7pm. Now I am exhausted.
Super Made at it again! When you get rested you can come help us at our house next! =)

I wanted to see that but ended up watching a Christmas movie instead.

Nothing. We will have about 15 recliners....some big screen televisions, laptops (we gotta be able to get on MMC) and an endless supply of popcorn.

There isn't even a textbook.

Wayne and I will be there!!!!!

I own the dvd, Rick Steves European Christmas, and have seen the festivities of children visiting the Grotto. It is so neat to see how you celebrate there! I watch that dvd all the time.

That's my kind of school! I'm in!!!

Sounds even easier than when I went to the 10 minute university (graduated with honours!) Of course you have to buy a book for that course.
