That menorah is totally adorable.

Denny said he saw LED lights that have that old school appearance to them. I love it! I haven't seen those lights in years. I have to get the 'ol Christmas tree out this weekend and if my lights don't work - bam - in the trash and I'm going old school too!

Have fun in Vegas!

Hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving. Just got home from Vegas and I am painfully behind on my threads as well as everyone else's but I have vowed to catch up tonight.

You're so cute. I will post more. I bought two more at the Disney Outlet in Vegas this weekend as well as matching Disneyland Resort sweats for the me and the girls for the trip. They're baby blue. They were only $7.99 a pair. I'll post those, the ornaments, and our new Christmas Minnie.

Very nice job with the tree. The instant cheeriness that a decorated tree brings to the room is so wonderful. The "hidden Mickey" ornament is cute. I love that look of the swirly peppermints.

Wishing you safe travels and fun this week.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Thank you. Hope you had a wonderful holiday too. I finally got to eat Michael's amazing Thanksgiving dinner tonight as Joshua and I just got home from Vegas. I am turkey'd out now.

It's about 11 feet tall and it was only $10. Of course we had to chop it and haul it home but my house smells so good.

Thanks friend. Your books arrived too before I forget to tell you. I posted it on FB too. :good vibes

His team killed it the first game and he got a hat trick. First one ever. They lost the second game by two goals and played the dirtiest team I have ever seen. The third game the got killed but played well. The other team played so well, like MLS quality. I could not believe they were U12 bits. They passed liked pros. Our boys foot skills are amazing but these guys were so fast, we just couldn't get there.

Do it girl! The bold colors are so fun, so nostalgic. Did you put it up? Pictures!!!

Let's see a photo.




Nothing new on the Disneyland trip but I realized tonight that I have 15 days to be wrapped and ready for Christmas. One would think I'd be doing something other than playing here.

Welcome back. Hope that what happens in Vegas does NOT stay in Vegas. We need to live vicariously through you.

I started to panic at the thought of 15 days.....and then remembered you're heading to DLR and won't have that extra week. *phew*

i didn't bring the big camera. I knew that because the trip would be soccer heavy and mostly take place in Henderson that I wouldn't take a lot of photos. It was a great time but because I did the driving I knew there wouldn't be any fun road trip pics. We went to the Strip one night, parked at the Luxor and used the walkway over to the Excalibur so the boys could lick their wounds at the fun dungeon arcade. We did make it over to one of the outlets malls but aside from the Nike and Disney stores, I wasn't impressed with their "deals". The mall almost seemed as if it got all of the merchandise from one place and divided it up between the stores; it was really odd, low quality stuff in the Hurley/Billabong/PAC Sun etc type stores. Of course, with the boys, we didn't hit the Coach and higher end stores so they could have had rockin sales.

I know the 15 days has me wide awake right now at 4:30 am and I'm debating starting a pot of decaf and getting up to decorate my mantle and banisters.

Sounds like you guys had a good weekend! Sorry that Joshua's team eventually lost but yay for the hat trick! That's an awesome accomplishment!

My teams split this weekend...Missouri beat A&M and gets to go the SEC Championship game and the Chiefs lost.

Nice to hear that you got back safely.

It won't be too long until you are back at the DLR during the Holiday season.

He's pretty stoked especially because he plays center mid which is traditionally not a high scoring position like the striker.

Thanks.

They had a blast and learned a ton. Six boys from the team stayed at the same hotel so they had fun binding time too away from the games. Boys are SO much easier than girls.

Thanks Bret. There was a lot of traffic on the way back.

I know, we can't wait. The kids are counting down daily on Twitter.

You're right, it's Saturday not Sunday. My brain feels like mush. We're in the parks on Thursday and Friday. We're meeting Friday in the park before your din din I think. I think it just hit me that I have to be wrapped and ready for the holidays by 2 weeks from tomorrow.

He saw them at Lowe's. They were on the shelf. He didn't see an actual display. But he said the LEDs are inside the big bulb.

My Christmas tree is still not up. Denny's job is to put it up and I do all the rest. He let me down this weekend. I did get the rest of the house decorated, but I have a super busy weekend coming up sooooooooo…….. I'd like to put it up Friday night. fingers crossed. And I may go and get those lights this week.
