Thanks for the pictures, Brent. I am so jealous that you have a store like that around you.

Okay, it is getting late. I got a little too involved with the Fun & Games section while my wife was on a long winded phone conversation. I use to do that all the time when I first joined as a way to relax when the boys were taking naps, wow, where does time go.

Have a great night everyone.

I know. I use to do it all the time too. It used to be my way to get the brain flowing in the morning.

Oh my! You're correct, Made! I had no idea. Great observation. It should also be noted that this photo was taken in my kitchen. Not Tinseltown!

I tried to hold back my excitement, but I couldn't help but share. After all, there is only about 77-85 days until the thread debuts for the 2013 season!

This item will help us prepare for the final countdown of the 2013 Christmas Season.... Apparently, it is their top seller!:

Very "Christmas Vacation"-like, is it not?! We love it! ...Of course, we look forward to placing our own surprises as the anticipation builds until we reach "Merry Christmas!!"

That is all. I hope you all enjoyed. I am excited to say "Merry Christmas" in a few short months. Until then, we can continue to celebrate through this wonderful thread and keep making 2013 the magical year it has been thus far.
