Good afternoon Christmas buddies! It has been a rather busy day for me. This whole week has been busy since we have company. I wish I would have taken a week of vacation from work so I could have been with them more. Anyhow I am off the week of Halloween as usual!! Anyhow I am on lunch break and just eating crackers at my desk. I hope this early October day finds all of yall doing awesome! I hope to be around more after BIL and SIL leave! (not that I want em too but you knowlol)

I have always taken Halloween week off! It's like tradition since like 1999!! I always eat candy, watch wall to wall horror movies, go to the local Haunted house! And on Halloween night I just hand out the candy while blaring the soundtrack to Halloween 1 or 2 out on my porch while the kids come up!!! after that is done I still watch my horror movies until about Nov 13. Halloween at my house is not done until the Christmas décor comes out!!!

ETA: I just wanted to add that to me Halloween is more of a celebration of Autumn the opening of the Holiday season!! I never was allowed to celebrate it as a kid we never got to do the trick of treating thing so I think I am making up for it as an adult and I am making sure my kids celebrate it and go trick or treating!!

Although spending 5 months in Amsterdam sounds very attractive, I have to be realistic that I probably wouldn't be able to submit all the documents requested. It's very shame but oh well, I guess it has to be that way.
That's a bummer that you didn't find out about the exchange until now. Hopefully another one will come along before you are done with school.

Stopping by to say hi! I have not been on here for a week! Have I missed any big news around here? I doubt I will be able to catch up on the postings.

Wayne and I went to Six Flags Saturday and rode a few roller coasters. We have season passes so we just stayed for about 2 hours. We then headed to, what use to be, the year round Christmas store that is close by. I found out they close for a few months during the summer now. I sent a few pictures of Santas to Made and need a get a few pictures posted in the blossoms thread! That store is amazing! We had a nice day, as usual!

As I type I just saw a commercial of International Delight Pumpkin Spice coffee cream! Some of you may have seen it. A lady buying up a bunch before they are gone. Yay for holiday commercials!

It will be in the 90's up until Friday and then only in the 70's this weekend!

I cannot find the original post but I saw that Bradmac quoted Xmas365 on Santa and Rudolph with a lighted nose. That is so adorable!!! Is that yours or took a picture of it somewhere else? If it's yours where did you get it at? I love it!!!

I wasn't feeling too Christmasy this week and I usually feel it big time by September. Yeah, I'm one of the Christmas Crazies like you all, the rest of the world thinks "Why have the Christmas spirit so early"? I should not have missed a week on here. Just as soon as I started typing and looking around I am really feeling the Christmas spirit! Yay! Thanks to you all! Especially Jeff for having this site!
