We will be heading out to my in laws for a turkey dinner in about an hour, and I will have to sit there and watch the Patriots game with my father in law and bro in law.
My wife and I started talking about what we should get the boys for Christmas, we are really struggling with what they want this year. The Toys R Us Big Toy Book can't get here soon enough.

I will chat with you all later, enjoy your Sunday.

Enjoy your dinner and I hope the Patriot's lose!!!!


I'm having a hard time with my niece's too. All they keep saying is they want Smurf stuff and they really don't need anymore.

Our foliage is passing its peak ... we've had some showers, and it's breezy today, so the bright colors are getting ragged and the bare branches are beginning to show. But we have a brilliant blue October sky today, and the remaining leaves are giving a real Technicolor show before they fall!

Good Luck with the projects and I hope Mr. doesn't have to work to long!!!!

our trees are becoming bare too, the rain yesterday and now gusting winds are working hard to strip them of the rest of the leaves.
Take a spoonful of sugar with that work, according to Mary Poppins it will make the job go easier!

Lol, When I went in to get a Dream Book this year I was told they were only for "members". It took me a few minutes to get the woman to to hand one over to me!

Good evening Christmas community! I hope you all had a good weekend. For me, Sunday evening is the least favourite part of the week mainly because next day is the most challenging day of the week. :/
I have had a chat with my mum a minute ago and somehow I now have a feeling that there's something wrong at home. She said everything is fine but I just have the opposite feeling - if you guys know what mean. It is now really bothering me. :[
I also came across affordable airline ticket to go back to Lithuania for the Holidays but the point is that the flight is during my exam period. I feel quite lost right now because I don't know if I should take risk and buy the ticket anyway.
Oh well. There is a lot of cunfusion going on around here.
I hope every one of you are doing well.
Best wishes!

Spent the morning at my sister's going over all of her preparations to take the girl scouts camping next weekend. There was a few things she was missing but I think she's all set now. It's going to drop down into the 20's overnight next weekend where they are going so it's not going to be your average summer camp out.
