I just bought a t-shirt at Old Navy tonight that says "Son Of A Nutcracker" for $4.49 on clearance. Another one for my Christmas T shirt collection!

Good evening,

We have found a new preschool/daycare for the boys, we got home later then we planned. Working in the a.m.

Good night all.

Yeah, Kung Fu dubbing! Ha ha!

I do plan to add music from her era starting in the 40's. Problem is, she really don't like much music from that time. I actually enjoy it more than her! Lol! She is more into Aretha Franklin, Marvin Gaye, Wilson Pickett, Elton John, well you get the picture! She loves a lot of hip hop music too! Her mp3 player is loaded with it! Sorry but none of that would fit in and I am sure if she saw the video with the 40's music she will like it. Some of the home movies was taken in the 50's and I know she likes some music from that time. It would be comical to see old footage with a hip hop beat!

I cannot thank you enough for sparking this idea! I have so many thoughts going through my mind as to what to do in the video. It will be a great gift. Thanks to you, MerryCarey for getting all this going in the first place! =)
My in-laws had a video that was a slide show of still pictures from about the 1960s, but they didn't like the music track. Mr. re-did the music using albums that George Burns recorded in the 1980s---some old songs, like "Young at Heart," others new songs that were written for Burns to sing. Sounds weird, but it worked beautifully! I can't wait to see what you do with your family footage.

We had a good time, except that where we were going to eat, the power was off in the entire neighborhood---we saw fire engines and personnel, so I guess maybe a transformer blew or something. The second place we went there was no parking space left, but we went to a third place that was okay, but not as good as the place we originally planned to eat. Sadly, their little terrier had passed away. Now they have a rescued dog who is a chihuahua/beagle mix---what a cutie, and so sweet!

I hope the midday pain---any pain, for that matter---soon stops.

So far you have popcorn to bring. I will have some cheesecake here. We need more goodies! =)

Party!
I'll grab some cookies and Tastykakes on the way! Since Hostess went out of business, we now have Tastykakes around here. I missed them when I moved to New England. We used to stock up on them when we went to Maryland for a visit.

Happily, Dad's burial service is pretty much all set for April, except that I haven't yet been able to get the documentation that will let me take the urn on the plane to Maryland with us. I don't want to have to mail it to my aunt. If I do, I'm sure he'll be laughing about it up there. But I'll feel better if I can hand-carry the urn back home.

Good evening Christmas family. I am so whipped. These 10 hour days are quite tiring. But in order to make more money that is what I have to do.

Wish is doing well again...eating well, no sickness. You would never know he is ill. I hope everyone has a great, Christmassy evening !!
