He was all smiles and my blood pressure is now normal, it fixed itself after I have lost more than 20lbs. LC was excellent for a 2 year old with everything we did he did not complain, cry, whine, etc... I treated him to lunch at a Burger King with an indoor playground, he was so happy running around playing with others. When we got home, JP and my wife got home shortly after us, we went to Texas Roadhouse for dinner (mmmmmm, steak) and grocery shopping, I am so proud of my boys they were so good.

Some days the rewards are so great and they beat the tough days of being a parent every time.
Congratulations on being healthier!!! It makes a difference to just change the way you eat.

I threw myself in reverse and went back to take a look.

I recognized it , as one who scours ebay year round for decs, I had seen something similar before.So My curiosity peeked, I went in to the room, and what I walked into was out of this world ( from the vantage point of a vintage Christmas dec lover) It was eye candy to the max! Strung to the ceiling was a wonderland of vintage Christmas decorations made by the Beistle company. It was Delicious ,Delicious ,display of color and vintage "yumminess "

So I struck up a conversation with the teacher, who incidentally was the Art teacher. He told me that his house is full of such things and tomorrow he is going to show me pictures .I cannot wait!! He also told me that he keeps all his stuff up until the end of the month. HAVING never met him before I began to suspect that he is "one of us " I m taking my camera in tomorrow and I m going to take pictures of his classroom If I get the right "vibe "I may even tell him about us . lol



Good Nite everyone !
Sounds like we might have another member joining? I love vintage decorations as well and bought a few off ebay in the past. 20 years ago my grandmother had offered me some decorations she had that were vintage and I declined taking them! I am kicking myself now!

That is so funny! When one of my dogs need to go potty he hops up and down saying "woof" then runs for the back door. If I don't get up fast enough he repeats this process.

If he is hungry he scratches the bowl and will not stop until I get some food in there. Then after I fill it, he looks at me like he is waiting for permission to eat it. I have to tell him it's ok before he will finally eat it. He will even look for me for permission if someone else fills the bowl. I never taught him to do this, he does it on his own. I think he just likes the baby talk I do to him when I say it's ok.

I had a dog before that has done that too..also my bulldog knows when he goes out to potty he get a "bone" which is actually a beggin strip,but I call it a bone...he will then try to fool me he thinks by acting like he needs to go out like 20 times in an hour...i finally just give in and let him go out because i'm afraid the one time I dont let him he will have an accident..and when he comes in I will give him a "bone" i cant resist because he will stare at me if I dont until I do anyway.

Hi All

Thank goodness its Friday! I was listening to the news this morning and apparently this weekend is known to be the most depressing of the year! I am actually looking forward to it - it will be a nice rest after all the Christmas excitment.
I currently have my head in my study books whilst listening to mmc radio.

Have a great weekend!
Naomi
oh an we have more snow in the UK as well

Morning all! In reply to a few posts back, for me I start to seriously thik about chrismtmas in September. Its often when adverts on the TV start to hint and you start to hear excerpts of winter music. Also christmas candy starts to sneak into the shops. And as soon as Halloween is over (which is also my birthday) Christmas really starts to hit the shops and the TV so by the 14th of November christmas is set up!

Don't know If I will be making it too Atlanta this weekend,there is talk of Ice storm..oh well maybe the next weekend I will make it up there to visit Old friends. now have to make other plans since I will be homeless this weekend getting my home repainted. guess I will check into the Holiday Inn.

In regards to when I start getting ready for Christmas... this past year was much different it was my first year really getting into it,and I started getting all pumped up for it in late september when the cool air arrived. Thats when I joined this site as well. and I was watching Christmas movies by mid october. usually october is reserved for my horror movie collection. I put my tree up on Nov.13th and from there on out it was christmas time for me.I think from here on out Nov.13th will be the day I put my decorations and tree.
