Good morning!
I woke up with another headache this morning. It is so annoying. Not a good way to start the day. But it feels better already so I am ready to start my chores and run a couple of errands. Just going to have one more cup of coffee! The girls and I are going to have lunch with my parents, brother and sister in law today. I'm going to run to the bakery soon to pick up something for dessert. I hope everyone is well and has a great day!!!

We then stopped by Michaels and Bed Bath and Beyond while we were out. Bed Bath and Beyond didn't have anything Fall related out but they did have alot of back to school stuff. Over at Michaels, they had all their Fall stuff out and alot of Halloween stuff out as well.

Michaels had their animated Halloween displays all setup with all the lights and sounds going. It was kind of neat, it didn't take too long for the mrs to track me down after I wandered away to take a better look at it; the only thing I heard was "no". LOL, I guess she had an idea to what I was thinking~

So, unfortunately I left empty handed but I do have a wish list going now....thinking postive here...
Sounds like fun night!!!! My sister loves Noodles & Co. I have never been there!

And a fun new hobby at that!!!

WE NEED A LITTLE CHRISTMAS by
Mame:
Haul out the holly;
Put up the tree before my spirit falls again.
Fill up the stocking,
I may be rushing things, but deck the halls again now.
For we need a little Christmas
Right this very minute,
Candles in the window,
Carols at the spinet.
Yes, we need a little Christmas
Right this very minute.
It hasn't snowed a single flurry,
But Santa, dear, we're in a hurry;
So climb down the chimney;
Put up the brightest string of lights I've ever seen.
Slice up the fruitcake;
It's time we hung some tinsel on that evergreen bough.
For I've grown a little leaner,
Grown a little colder,
Grown a little sadder,
Grown a little older,
All:
And I need a little angel
Sitting on my shoulder,
Need a little Christmas now.
Mame:
Haul out the holly;
Well, once I taught you all to live each living day.
All:
Fill up the stocking,
Young Patrick:
But Auntie Man, it's one week from Thanksgiving Day now.
All:
But we need a little Christmas
Right this very minute,
Candles in the window,
Carols at the spinet.
Yes, we need a little Christmas
Right this very minute.
Agnes:
It hasn't snowed a single flurry,
But Santa, dear, we're in a hurry;
Ito:
So climb down the chimney;
Put up the brightest string of lights I've ever seen.
All:
Slice up the fruitcake;
It's time we hung some tinsel on that evergreen bough.
For we need a little music,
Need a little laughter,
Need a little singing
Ringing through the rafter,
And we need a little snappy
"Happy ever after,"
Need a little Christmas now.
Need a little Christmas now.
Well, at least I am singing this now rather than The Yellow Rose of Texas! Ha ha!!
