Christmas Tree

We live an hour and a half away from our nearest big town where we can do a big shop. We only get there every5-6 weeks or so. We went yesterday and I was so thrilled to see all the Christmas 'stuff' out on sale. It puts me in such a good mood! It is so lovely to see and I can't wait until the full on decorations are up and we can hear the carols playing...in the shops that is...already having them playing in my car! What a fantastic time of year...and it will only get better.

Awww!! Tigger is precious!



I am sorry to hear about Tigger's passing! Tigger's pedigree is so intriguing! I do love her name, I think it sounds much cuter than the others. It's a good thing she was your pet compared to being in the shows - now you have wonderful memories to look back on!
Actually, they had me make sure my gas cap was firmly closed before I brought the car in!

I still have dreams where I walk into a room and see Tigger there, and in the dream I'm never surprised to see her, even though I know she's been gone a long time. I'm glad she got to spend her life as a pet, too.

Just thinking about it makes me want to go cut another piece!

I didn't get to do any Halloween activities yet. I think we are saving the pumpkins for tomorrow. We are going to watch a couple of Halloween movies tonight, though! My arm is a little bit better today except I keep getting random twinges of pain. At least it's improving!

What's new with you guys? Anything fun planned for tomorrow?
what a wonderful way to spend your day!

good thing they are not camping here, their tents would blow away it is so windy!
Glad they are having fun

I used to live in northern British Columbia and it was a 4 hour drive to a big city. We used to go several times a year, spend the night and just have a good time. It was a lot of fun. That same town has really grown since we left, has traffic lights and everything now.

Greetings fellow MMC'ers. It's been a really fun Saturday. I had a great men's breakfast at church this morning. Then this evening I went to really fun Halloween party. Great food, good friends and some GREAT costumes. I couldn't stay as long as I wanted because I have to get up very early tomorrow for my day trip to Galena. This is a really fun weekend and a Lions win over Dallas tomorrow would make it even better.

Hope you guys are having a wonderful weekend as well!!
