Merry Christmas & Happy Holidays! New Updated List 11/27/11

Hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday! We had Thanksgiving with my parents out in Ranger, TX! Smoked turkey, dressing, corn, mash potatoes, gravy, rolls & veggie tray. I made a buttermilk pie and an chocolate buttermilk pie. Yum! Ate too much, but I think that's one of the things that just goes along with that holiday!!!!

Gearing up for the Christmas holidays. Got the tree up and decorations on and around the inside of the house. The temps are a bit cooler and we had a couple of very blustery days. With it getting dark so early, the lights may have to wait until this weekend. I'll put up my few things that I can do without Dan's help and the ladder.

One of our traditions is to turn on Christmas music while the tree is being put up or at least while it's being decorated. Another is that the tree or decorations don't go up before Thanksgiving. It's usually the day after.

What are some of your holiday traditions? Let me know.

Also put up a new list this weekend so check it out. We have cassettes on sale - buy 2 get 2 free.

Gotta get back at it!

Have a wonderful Christmas and Happy New Year, if I don't get back to the blog before then!

Happy Fall Yall! More Photos & Udated List - 11-8-11

Hope everyone is enjoying the cool fall weather! Hope you're not one of those that got hit by the snow storm and lost power.

I just love this time of year! The changing of the leaves is beautiful. I took a road trip to pick up some players and tapes the other day and ended up going down a state highway. I saw some amazing foliage as well as buffalo, ostrich or emu, lamas and other wild life.

What's crazy around here is that I've been seeing some of the Bartlett Pear trees blooming. This crazy drought and now cooler weather has tricked them into thinking it's Spring.

I've uploaded some of our San Francisco photos from Photobucket - so take a look. Some of the photos are from a trip we took to Wisconsin a few years ago. Sorry for any dups of pics and all of the aerial photos, but some of those were pretty cool from the air. What can I say, it was a long flight! (I corrected all of my poor spelling on the photos in the slideshow, but it doesn't seem to show them (the corrections) on the uploads).

We've also put up a new list so check it out - Remember that we also have a mobile site that you can check out on your mobile devices. It's still under construction, but getting there. You can check it out at -

We hope everyone has a great Thanksgiving Day next week! Don't eat to much, shop to much or watch to much TV!

Can you believe that they are already laying on heavy Christmas ads. I've seen stuff out for Christmas since before Halloween. I saw some folks who already had their outside Christmas decorations up. I love Christmas, but let's at least get through Thanksgiving first!

Enjoy a wonderful holiday with your family & friends! We will be!
