He's working so hard trying to get this house finished. The first time we renovated this house was when we bought it over 20 years ago. I think he forgets he's not in his 20's anymore. This was a lot of work for him to take on by himself!
Not too much going on for me. I wish I could decorate like so many of you are doing. There really isn't any point pulling everything out until my husband finishes. I'm kind of sad but I'm trying to be patient. This is the last time we will be renovating here and I know it will be worth it.
Anyway, the girls are all working so they will be in and out today. I will probably do some Christmas shopping. If I don't go out I will definitely do some shopping online. I made a nice long Christmas gift list to work off of.
I hope everyone is well and has a great Sunday!!!

Bless your husband's heart!!

I couldn't decorate at all last year, so that's why I'm getting an early start! You're always welcome to come & visit mine to tide you over until you get yours out!! Please bring Molly & Maggie, too

Have fun Christmas shopping!!

***** CHRISTMAS SEASON DAY 5 *****



Good Morning, Season Travelers and Christmas Anticipators.

And indeed, we are traveling right along through Christmas Season 2013.
Already at Day 5!
Better get crackin' on those holiday gift and party plans!

The daily numbers:
Days to Thanksgiving: 11 (SINGLE DIGITS the day after tomorrow!)
Days to Christmas Day: 38 (Under 5 1/2 weeks left!)

And TOMORROW -- the 90 percent Milestone to Christmas Day!
(Then, no more markers left for this year. Sad -- and yet -- exciting!)

Nice and warm yesterday and this situation is predicted to continue today and tomorrow before more winter-like conditions return for Tuesday.
Currently, we stand at 55 degrees here in the center of the great state of North Carolina.

Have a Super Sunday, Friends.
And may you enjoy the 2nd half of your weekend at least as much as the first!

Just put a case of water in the fridge, turned around and saw this silly cat looking at me. He gets in to everything!

Good Morning MMC!!!!!! It's going to be a warm day with a high of 70 degrees here. Unfortunately we are also under a high risk of storms and tornado's. No fun. Not much on my agenda for today. I just got done eating breakfast and reading the paper and since I didn't see anything in the ads that I just had to run out and get, I'm going to start some laundry. Then it will be time for the last Nascar race of the year. I'm also going to unpack all of my Santa's and sit them on the dining room table so I can plan where they are going to go. I hope everyone is having a GREAT DAY!!!!!!!!!!!!

They usually don't light it that early. Boy, I was wrong! Those people who gripe must be very few and very loud (making us believe there is a lot) because there were thousands of people out in there in the Christmas spirit!

While out there Wayne and I participated in a game with a local radio station. Wayne won and I figured it would be a t-shirt. Nope! They gave us a pair of front row tickets to an upcoming Christmas parade!

Here is a picture of the store front of Neiman Marcus in Downtown Dallas. This picture does not do it justice. The lights twinkle so in the picture it appears that some of the lights are burned out, kinda hard to get the picture with them all lit! It's very impressive walking up on it!

.
love it, looks so great!
You would never know at Bronners either, so many people , even coming in by the bus load.
No the complainers are like you said, just noisy. Christmas is alive and well here too.
