Black Friday

Everyone loves Black Friday.  I take that back.  There are lots of people who don't like Black Friday.  I am one of them.  I can see no point in going out at 3 in the morning in the freezing cold and waiting hours to stand in line and try to get something that is really a bargain.  If I needed it that bad, I would have bought it a long time ago.  I can't see fighting for a parking place either, a half mile from the entrance to the store.  I think the best shopping is done starting in January, picking up things along the way till November and then stay away from the big stores, all the traffic, and fighting over items that are marked way down but there are never enough of them for everyone.  So I am sitting here in my warm house, with a hot cup of coffee and a chocolate chip cookie and enjoying every minute of it while others are out again today in freezing 19 degree weather shopping.

More Birthdays

Yesterday we celebrated one of my littlest great grandson's birthdays.  He will turn one on the 20th of November and his folks threw a great party yesterday.  He really got into opening the presents.  For one so young, he ripped off the paper like he knew what he was doing :0)  It was so cute.  Of course, his older sister, age 5 and brother, who will be 3 this week, enjoyed helping him as much as his folks would let them to open the gifts.  They had their cousins over and enjoyed playing with the new games.  His dad decorated a neat cake with a brown football on top of a green football field.  That with ice cream, punch and crackers and a cheese ball filled everyone up for awhile.    Later chili with fritos and cheese was enjoyed by all.

Cleveland Golf Clubs

There are quite a number of golfers in my family now.  They are all interested in obtaining new golf clubs. It is getting into the Holiday season and the shopping is about to begin.  Perhaps you have already started your shopping for new golf clubs for various members of your family for Christmas and among those they would like would be the golf wedges.  Not just any golf wedges will do, they want the highest quality wedges they can find.  By shopping the Internet, I am able to obtain these high quality wedges from a company that has been well known for 25 years for the best wedges and golf clubs.   I found out that having the best wedges is utmost in the mind of everyone who plays golf.   My grandson recently moved into the neighborhood of the local golf course. They live right across the street from Hole #1.    His garage houses a golf cart and he loves golf.  His father-in-law loves to go with him and golf every chance they get.   Purchasing fine Cleveland golf clubs for Christmas will delight both of them.

This little Spiderman is one of my great grandsons.  I thought it was one of the best costumes I saw this year.  I wasn't sure who he was, it was so good.  He was having a great time fooling great grammy.  And he knew where the candy bowl was.  He headed right for it.  I asked him to do a trick for me but he was too little to know what I meant and just looked at me with his big eyes.  He had a great deal of fun being Spiderman.

Marmot Jackets for Women

It is that time of the year again.  The time when you get out your warm jackets.  Time to put away the summer and Fall jackets for something lots warmer.  We have seen a few snow flakes and soon it will be serious about snowing as it is gradually getting colder and colder.   Now is the time to get a new   marmot venus jacket to keep you warm in the snow and cold wind chills we have in our State.  With a warm goose down jacket, you know you will be warm wherever you go.  I was looking at them on the Internet and I love the vibrant colors.  The jackets are so light weight, you wonder if they will keep you warm but they certainly do.  And not only that they are water resistant too in order to keep the wind out and the heat in.

Fun on Halloween

Here are two of my little great granddaughters in their costumes.  They are ready to go out for their first Trick and Treat on Halloween.  Aren't they just little dolls?  Next year they will really enjoy it more being older.  The first Halloween's are kind of different for them as they don't quite understand the reason for the costumes.  They all know the meaning of candy though, don't they?  They had a lot of fun.

Birthday Cake

Great granddaughter turned 5 November 1st.  Her Mom baked this cake and her Dad decorated it.  He has quite a talent for decorating.  He must have lots of patience.  Not only was the cake beautiful but it was delicious as well.  Everyone really enjoyed it.  We were all surprised to learn her Dad did the decorating.

Birthday Parties

November and December are big months in our extended family for birthdays.  I have 13 great grandchildren and most of them have been born during those months.  Most of mine were born in November and December and one son in January.  He not only brightened our lives, but he brightened my family ring with a red stone among the blue and yellow ones.  We are going to a big party for two of the great grandsons this weekend.  That means lots of fun and food for all in attendance.

First Halloween

This is my little great grandson dressed up in his Halloween costume.  It is his first Halloween and he is excited to go out with his folks and his brother and sister.  He smiles all the time.  You can tell he is having a great time.  They came to my house all dressed up and were so cute.  Next year he will be walking along with the family.
