I wish I had some of my childhood Christmas stuff. It was all lost years ago between all the moves we did. I guess that is why I try to find old stuff that brings back some memories and why that Time/Life commercial means so much to me.

Same here! I have been playing this collection for over 20 years. Started with the LP, then cassette tape, now the CD! I love seeing the commercial to it.

My 3 year old granddaughter is pretending to bake me Christmas cookies with her play kitchen. They must be Valerie glitter cookies because she said there are sparkles all over them. I can't wait until they are ready to try them out!

Well, I am going to go play with her and enjoy some of her homemade baking.

Have a fun day everyone!

Good morning,

LC didn't want to go to his daycare today, he was about to cry when I left him there. The little ones there were going "come on LC" they wanted to play with him. I did some running around after that, I had to look at a camera since ours is taking such crappy pictures now. I stopped at KMart and all of their Christmas clearance was all gone. Oh well, it will be back in 8.5 months. The camera is something I will have to talk to my wife about, maybe we can put it on layaway. I have no energy today, I am supposed to be doing my laundry, and picking up.


Have a great day!!!

Everyone keep safe with that serious weather around today, I heard tornado warnings and severe t-storms are on the menu in Oklahoma, Arkansas, and so on.

I have a couple of ornaments from my childhood. Wayne has one as well. We cherish those more than any other on our tree!
Thank you!!

Aren't those some of the best things about Christmas? It's so nice to have those memories & pieces of our past. And I'm sure it's a wonderful feeling as a parent to be able to pass them down to your children.

And instead of a Firebird on the hood, we can do a Christmas Tree outline, or even better, a silhouette of Santa, his sleigh and the reindeer!

Who has a copy of Photoshop that can put that on a Camaro hood?!
Now that's a great idea, Brad!!

Wayne and I want to go out for the day and play so no getting yard work done! The distractions never end at home! Those are great excuses to not get work done! Oh yeah, Made needs his dishes done so mine get neglected! What's up with that? (My projects finally get done eventually!)

At work I have valid reasons not to get certain things done right away, customers first! I eventually get my work done because I hate unfinished projects at work. It gets so hectic at work at times but it's a fun job!
LOL, my problem at home is that I keep poping in here between jobs!

I love that commercial, too!!

Is there anything in particular that you've been looking for? I know you love Shiny Brite ornaments.

There's a gift shop & garden center here called Down To Earth that I first visited back in November when I was house hunting. It had so many neat vintage Christmas items! I know I'll go back again this year @ the beginning of the season. I can keep an eye out on things for you

I bought a few things. It's a really cool place!

It's really slippery outside! It's still sleeting, and just cold enough to freeze over good. I'm glad I don't have to do any running around today.

Hope you all have a fabulous day!!!

was just talking to my mom and she said anyone outside needs to be careful when walking as there are ice patches under the puddles. The temps are going up here and the rain might hang around all day so there will not be much snow left by tonight.

My granddaughter is serving me a whole lot of different food but she just informed me that she put the "Valerie Glitter" cookies in the microwave and they will be ready in 2 hours?! This should be interesting!

Bradmac, I love the idea of your Christmas Car!!! =)
