It was hot and muggy here, too. Reminds me of the way it feels in spring just before we get a bad storm. How is your knee?

The ornament premier at Hallmark was fun today 🎄

I ended up remembering that I had a $10 off coupon, so I brought that and ended up getting two keepsake ornaments.

I got Santa's Magic Storybook:





And Santa Signal:



They both light up and have sound/music.
The story book has an excerpt read from Santa, and the sky lights up and reads "Believe" at the end. And Santa's signal plays Here Comes Santa Claus, and you can hear a train whistle and then kids at the end asking Santa to "please stop here". Really fun & sweet!!

There were many others that I was excited about, and even though I still liked them, I didn't want to spend the extra money right now. I narrowed it down to my two favorites.

Off to do some things around the house, and then I need to order some take out for us.

Talk to you later!!

We are having the same type of weather!! Love it!! Dark, cool, rainy, Fall days are great!!

Enjoy your scary movies!! I love the old ones the best, too!!

Let us know what you end up watching.

Adrian is scanning through Netflix as I type, looking for a creepy movie.

Can't wait to see your Halloween decorations!

A neighbor of ours went all out- his deck, front, and side of his place. I took Har out in the middle of the night last night, and it was still lit up! Awesome!!

TTYT

I miss her too, dawg.

I really felt her smiling down on us today. We always compared notes on what we wanted at the ornament premiers, and I know she loved having that special time with her sister, Margaret.
