Getting ready for Christmas & Thanksgiving!

I started shopping for Christmas presents. I ordered some from I love that sight. It just makes it so easy to shop and they ship it right to your door. Love it!

Today I went to Kohl's and got some great deals! The store was packed but they seemed to handle it pretty well. I really didn't have to wait in line very long.

We have 9 grandchildren between the two of us. There is another grandchild on the way (next May). So there are a lot of gifts to get.

I also need to start shopping for Thanksgiving dinner. I want to get a 30 pound fresh turkey for the group we will have. I just love Thanksgiving! The family gets together and everyone sits at the table to eat. You try to catch up in what each person has been doing but sometimes you just run out of time. It is just great day!

My Ride to Work

The 3rd weekend in October we went camping.

We went camping at Spring Gulch Campground in Lancaster County, PA. It is a very nice campground! The children dressed up and competed for the best costume. They trick or treated and brought home a big bagful of candy. The weather was beautiful!It was warm during the day and cool during the evenings. It was great sitting around the fire and talking with friends. We shared food and laughs. Great time!

The 2nd weekend in October was spent in Ocean City, Maryland

Denny and I went to Ocean City, Maryland for the street rod show. We stayed at the Atlantic House Bed & Breakfast. The owners, Josephine & Brian, are so nice. They make you feel so at home and like you are visiting someone you have known for ages. The breakfasts are out of this world. And the waffles - Wow! They even let us make chocolate chip waffles in the evening. It is always a nice time when we stay there.

It's been a busy last few weeks!

The 1st weekend in October the cousins (Jean, Joan, Wanda, & Gloria) and I went to the ocean. We stayed at Joannies place which is in Fenwick Island. It was really a nice condo looking out over a lake. We had fun! Went to Bethany Beach and saw the Ocean and a few stores. We ate at Cracker Barrel and Cottage Cafe. We shopped at the outlets and just enjoyed the time we had together.

July 4th weekend

Well, it is July 4th weekend and here I am with nothing special to do. I think I will do some sewing. Maybe make a quilt. I have some sun bonnet squares and may just put them together in a quilt. My sewing machine is a Bernina and I am still getting used to it. So far it is pretty neat! It does all kinds of things and is a big help in sewing anything!

Dale Earnhardt, Jr. wins!

On 7/2 Dale Earnhardt, Jr. won the Nationwide Race at Daytona. He was driving a car that looked like his father's Wrangler car with the #3 on it. What a great ending!! I think he had a co-pilot with him :-)- his Dad. It has been a long time since he has won a race but this was an important one. Tony Eury, Jr. was his crew chief, Richard Childress let him use the #3, and his crew were the #8 team's crew. DEI worked with him, too. Jr. said that this is the last time driving the #3.

It was great to see the end of the race and all the fans standing with 3 fingers in the air. The emotions were at a high - even Tony Eury, Jr. was crying!

Spring is in the air!

The weather has been warmer - in the 60s! Although this weekend is suppose to be rainy, it will still be warm. It just seems that when Spring comes, you have more energy and want to accomplish more. I want to start sewing again. I have lots of material and ideas. It's just staying off of this computer and getting into sewing.

Little bit of snow - lots of wind!

It is snowing and has been snowing but it is not accumulating much. The problem is the winds!! They are howling!! Our house is on a hill and that wind just whips around this house. Hope our siding and shingles stay on!

Another snow storm! And it is deep!

We had a snowstorm last Saturday and we just had another one last night in to today. It is still snowing and the winds are blowing! Saturday's storm was way over 2 feet and this one is suppose to be around 18 inches. What are we going to do with all this snow??? The dogs just love it - especially Jenny. She just jumps across the yard. At least I get to work from home. That is a definite perk! Stay warm & cozy!

January - not sure about this month

The holidays are over with. The weather has been cold and snowy. Not sure about this month. Some good things are birthdays. We celebrated Brian's birthday by taking him out to dinner at a Indian restaurant. It was his choice and the food was great!. I was told to tell them that I didn't want it hot. It had a little kick to it but was good. I had Chicken Marsala. Their bread was really good. It was different but good. Tomorrow morning I go to Meagan's birthday party at the skating rink. Her birthday was in December but the party is tomorrow because of the holidays. Then at 4:30 we will be going to a Chinese restaurant in York. We will be celebrating Breanna's birthday. So this month is busy for birthdays. So I guess January is a good month!
