Two for two

Haven't blogged two days in a row for quite some time!

Today's Christmas event was me visiting Toy World during my lunch break. Holy crap! Was that a place I was wishing I was somewhere else. There were kids running around everywhere, there was so much noise and squealing, mothers completely on edge, a line that nearly went out the door at the cash registers, and I was standing in the checkout wishing the ground would open up and swallow me whole, but I had made it that far, I wasn't backing out with my stockpile of goodies. Sooooo glad to get out of there. Even more glad that a few more kidlets have been crossed off my list.

Found this photo on the net last year, absolutely love it. Can you imagine the distraught children at the airport when they see this plane come flying in?


Mike is off at a meeting tonight, so it was a perfect opportunity to sit and really look at a surprise that I have for him for his upcoming birthday, and wrap it while he isn't here. And more importantly right now hide it! I can't wait to give this surprise to him, it's probably the best gift I've ever given him. All will be revealed soon enough - said the woman of mystery! ha.

Hi Carol, it's been a long time, eh? I was just catching up on your blog. Not sure if you ever got an answer to your question about the long hanging yellow flower (Oct post). It's called Angel's Trumpet. We have one in our back yard. The flowers can be 15-18" long!!!! I'm on facebook and, if you are too then send me a friend request.... Kristi Speed (Pinky Pal)
