Who is out there braving the crowds for that just have to have bargain? Not I said this little red hen. I'm heading off to crop the day away with some good friends later and, after a "refreshing" (it is about 38 here this morning) walk, I'll finish the clean up from Thanksgiving, sort some projects and head out.
Both of the twins have bronchitis and their mama has an upper respiratory infection so Thanksgiving was a bit more sedate than usual. With one little guy sitting on Nana's lap sad because he did not feel good, the photos are rather limited. They did get their tree up with help from Uncle Rob, who then read The Christmas Crocodile to them while we got dinner on the table. The kids each got to pick a lemon from the limoncello trees (also known as a Myer lemon tree) and the boys actually ate slices. Without further ado, here are the photos I did take.
This is going to be a busy few weeks coming up. Tues we resume our child care help, Thurs is the Christmas Book Club at Glo's, Friday is Snow Place like Tarpon Springs with the Grands (they love the reindeer and the snow), Jo and Bill arrive sometime this coming week, Mitch and Kim arrive sometime Sat. and Sat. night is our holiday party followed Sunday by the craft fair at Safety Harbor. Taking one box of projects to the crop today and I won't get to the craft fair til late morning.
The following week is only slightly less busy with Whim So Doodle's Christmas party on the 12th. along with a library board meeting and that Sat. is our never to be missed, Tarpon Springs Christmas Parade and visit with Mr. and Mrs. Santa. and a holiday brunch that Sunday at a friends.
Sure am glad we have almost all our gift shopping done...a few last minute items and E's big gift. Tis the Season and I hope yours is a joy!
