Good Morning, Christmas friends!!

How are you today?

I'm ok, for a Monday

I saw gabulldawg posted that we're @ 4 weeks out from the 4th of July, and it got me thinking about how it falls in the middle of the week- on a Wednesday... We get Wednesday off, but come back Thursday. Is that the same for most of you?

It is HOT here, 108 today for the high, and high wind warning coming in this afternoon. I was daydreaming of Fall again yesterday, so I thought I'd throw in a seasonal movie. I watched "The Lady In White". Has anyone ever seen that? Very good old ghost story. You have to get past the "special effects" from the 80's, but if you can do that, it's a great movie. I love the scenery of the small town.

Thinking of Snow-In-Texas, CAH, and Seawaters.
I'll keep you all in my prayers. As well as anyone else here that needs them. Take good care, friends~

Hope you all have a nice Monday!!

Good morning!!! I wanted to check in today with all you Christmas crazies!! It has been a couple weeks - the weeks are flying!! I have been thinking about Christmas a lot lately. Usually it hits after our town festival at the end of June & the 4th of July, but this year it hit me after Memorial weekend already! (not that I am wishing away summer...) I think it is b/c I have been seeing Christmas episodes on tv & I have also been thinking about & wondering what Christmas Eve is going to be like at my parents this year without my brother Mike physically being there! I know we are going to miss him like crazy (we already do) but I think it's important to keep our happy/jolly/fun Christmas just that - happy/jolly & fun - that is how Mike would like it to be! It's important to enjoy every single Christmas we are given - together! So far I am looking forward to Christmas & I am viewing it as a MERRY time of year - I need to keep myself in this mode! It will be a challenge this year, but I can do it!!!

Prayers going up for snow-in-texas! hope it all turns out well!!

I hope you are all enjoying some nice weather - have a great week!!!

She's a really good girl, loves school (she averages between 3.8 and 3.9 GPA) honor roll, etc... But I'm still a little sad, It's the first time that she has ever been off on her own, and I'm sitting here, worrying, like a nervous ninny.... and I know and realize, that as much as I have to learn to let go, this is, one of the most difficult things as a Father, that I have ever done, is to start letting go..... She looks at me like her Dad is as tough as nails, But when it comes to her, I melt like a marshmellow on the inside. It makes me sad (sitting here thinking) knowing that's she's growing up....

As a footnote here, I do have one thing that makes me feel a little better, that is her older brother will be down there as well (a few blocks away) and I know that he will keep an eye on her.
I can't stand to even think in those terms. Just last night, for the first time in a long time, my 11 year old Elizabeth asked me to lie down with her when she went to bed. When she was smaller I always did, but it's been a long time since she asked. The whole time I was there, all I could think about was how long it had been since we'd last done this. Where did the time go?

Sympathies for you, my friend. My heart will break in half when my little girl leaves.

One last question... (sorry! lol)
I thought I read that they order your 2 exclusive ornaments, and have them delivered to your local store. Is that correct? You go pick them up there?

You're the best! Thanks in advance!

Absolutely !! Yes.. They will have them delivered to your local store or I think (not sure on this) you can have them sent to your home ! When I ordered Mrs. Claus Cupboard for my sister and I they were delivered right to our home addresses !! No thanks needed, you are a sweet Christmas friend and I hope you will enjoy the club !! xo
