That's got to be the hardest part.

I think you have the right idea about going back to visit after a little bit of time. When you're ready..

Hang in there, my friend.

Good evening,

The clouds never opened up, sat and froze during baseball practice. My son was complaining about his hands hurting while batting, because of the vibrations of the bat. I made my snickerdoodles, and then made homemade calzones for dinner, (my wife's favorite) to say the least I am stuffed tonight, but those Nerds keep popping back in my head for some reason. Watching the Bruins lose badly, Red Sox are even worse.

Have a good night everyone!!!

Finally, after three or four days, I'm all caught up. This is the busiest time of year for me...I'm only home about 10 or 15 nights the next month and a half. There are banquets, ballgames, and all kinds of other events.

Rain moving in tonight and about supposed to be about a 20 degree swing in weather, so it's going to be colder tomorrow...

So, I've been looking at the Hallmark Ornament Dreambook....I'm stoked about this year...even more so than in the past....what's yall thoughts?

Speaking of collections, my mother is going to let me have our Department 56 North Pole Collection.....when i say ours, I mean that I have bought her about 50 of her 125 houses....thinking about building a prop that will store them....anyone else have something built for their houses??? I'm looking for ideas...

I like way too many of this year's ornaments, too!! Better start saving up!!!


Wow, you've got quite a village! I bet it is beautiful!

We collect one, too. And have a lot of pieces, also. We truly realized that when we moved. We haven't built anything for them, that would be ideal. But, we use our utility room & a storage
cubby under the stairs to keep them.
Adrian went to Home Depot & bought a few of those shelving systems, that you might put in your garage & put them together. I'd say about 90 % of them are on those. When we display the village, we use those craft/card tables (that you can fold up or down). Adrian has put together some different levels of craft like styrofoam (for artificial floral displays, that you can by at stores like Michael's) to make hills and whatnot for the houses. As it gets closer, we should share ideas!!
