Hey gang!

600 million????

Do you know what I would do with 600 Million? I would buy the Inn at Christmas Place....for all of us....that would be our house all year. We would have a go cart track, big screen tv for Christmas in July, and all the coffee we could drink....and that's just in one section of the yard....

Thanks for all the mentions about the wife's grandfather. The last visit was touching...he was all smiles, told her he loved her....and that he was at peace with everything and even ready. He said he wasn't hurting for the first time in a long time and he wanted to go see her grandmother....and that it was what he wanted. He was 85.

Came home this afternoon and was asleep before 5:00 pm. Woke up a couple of hours later to the dogs barking at the wife, who was playing with them. I worry about how the dogs will respond to the new baby...anyone give me some insight on this? Don't ask me....it was ok. I needed to visit. That's what is in store for the rest of teh weekend....rest and family time.

See you guys later!

I have mine in Auto Mode, it changes the scenes itself. I haven't seen the bunny that way in night mode, so I may have to change that!!

Thanks!!

Made, it's such a beautiful app!! They must have it for your smart phone?

I love my fireplace app. You can just listen to the sound of the flames, or to the built-in music, or have it play music that you choose from your iPad (or iPhone). It's called A Very Cozy Fireplace.

We don't have children, coach. Just our furkid, Harlowe. But, our friends that had furkids first, then kids, still make separate time for each, so the pets don't feel left out. They say that their dogs love the kids & are protective of them, in a positive way. I have one friend who kind of neglected her dog after her son's birth, and he was jealous. I think the key is balance, she admittedly didn't do that.

It's great that your dogs have each other, as well.

So glad that your wife had such a nice last visit with her grandfather.

xx

My mother always bought us the Cella's chocolate covered cherries at Christmastime. I usually buy them but I couldn't find them this past year. My Rite Aid, CVS and Target didn't have them. I will have to look harder next Christmas.
