The day are getting shorter and filled with more things I think I need to get done. This is a very busy week, 2 basketball games, Christmas play, daycare play, baking, shopping and the hunting of the Wii.
Yes, we did not have any luck looking for a Wii, when we went shopping. But after calling all Walmarts in a 100 mile radius, we found one. A truck had just delivered a few and we made a mad dash to pick it up, All is well. And wrapped and under the tree. The grandsons will get a Wii for Christmas. As I write this there is clothes laying on my bed that need to be folded, more in the dryer, the washer and dish washer is humming, and cookies in the oven. Grandson #2 has rearranged the tree and played with all the ornaments, grandson #1 said last night @ 6, that he needed cookies for school today oh, and a boy gift too. So off to Walmart, we go. School is out today at noon, it is almost that time. So it is time for me to second guess myself, do I have enough for him or her, maybe I need to get a few more things, I don't want the kids to be disappointed. Do you do his? I go through this every year. I think I will go back to Walmart one more time, just to look around....

The Store's Christmas open House was Saturday and we had a crowd.
Well, we had in about 40 people , that's alot for us.
The store looked great.
Thank you Barbara!
We worked all week, actually for about 3 weeks off and on and it showed.
I got alittle upset when someone would come in and buy the displays. Because I would have to come up with something else. But that is why we are there, to sell our goods.
Jerri's Jingling Jubilee was Sunday.
We had a really good time.
But this year I have a few kits left, so until they are gone you can purchase all 10 kits for one price $20.00 + shipping.
Or you can pick them up.
We completed 10 items on Sunday, drank not so egg nog ( taste like melted homemade ice cream), and no get together is complete without chocolate.
I was so happy to see your girls, some of you it had been awhile.
I did get my tree up on Tuesday and it has lights.
That night I walked through the kitchen and there was power ranger hanging from the branches.
Grandson #2 had decorated the tree his way.
I feel alittle lost this week, I have no decorating to complete at the shop, the Jubilee is finished. And so I started a book.
Is it time for me?
Get real, you still have to shop, I only have 2 gifts bought.
Bake all the Christmas goodies, decorate the tree at home, climb into the attic and get out all the decorations. Basketball game tonight, practice on Saturday. Next week is Christmas play, daycare program, more basketball, dentist appointment, 1/2 school on Friday and then the boys are out for the holidays.
So Happy Holiday Everyone!

Moral of this story
Don't use MURRAY'S HAIR DRESSING POMADE to make your hair stand on end.
Hot water rolls off, almost makes it more stiff. Shampoo and conditioner will not penetrate.
Off to the computer with towel over my hair, reading the website @ 1 a.m
Removing the product
To remove the product. Murray's was originally formulated to stay in the hair, therefore, getting it out may be difficult for some hair types. Use a strong clarifying shampoo or liquid dish washing soap and work into dry hair, slowly add small amounts of water to build foam, as the foam dissipates add more water, do this a few times prior to rinsing. There are many other ways which customers have submitted to us including, wash with Coca-Cola, Use a hair dryer and a fine toothed comb to melt the wax and pull it out.
Wouldn't you know it!!!
Tried it all !!
It was 2 a.m I went to bed.....
Total washing at this point.
Up at 6:45
I have too much to do today and I need this stuff out of my hair.....
Back to the computer, I know I can't be the only person to put this stuff in their hair...and I was right.
There are many of us and the tips helped.
I used dish detergent and olive oil.
And lot's of it...
Stay Tuned for a drawing the end of this week...

FIRST THINGS FIRST....A friend called the house while I was preparing for the reception. Said there is a yard sale on your road you might want to check it out. So I did...His lose is my shops gain. She wasn't selling all his stuff but she did say when she married him that he only had a twin bed. Yard Sale will be every weekend until it is gone.
On to the wedding....wedding was at a wedding chapel at 2. Cake after and then on to the house to eat, sorta like a after party. Anyway, I was expecting them at 5. At 4 I was in the tub, they called and was 10 minutes away. I was going to start the rolls and corn at 5:30. Serve drinks from 5 to 6. Eat at 6. So it was a mad dash to finish, but it was all done, had to deal with a little wind, and my camera acted spastic. I will have more pic as soon as I get them from the a friend.
But look at the love in the bride and grooms face, it was worth it all.

We have been cleaning and working in the yard all week. I borrowed a pressure washer and oh my goodness, I have cleaned everything that was standing still. It all looks so clean and fresh now. I am going out and buying myself a pressure washer as soon as this reception is over. How could I ever live without one....grunt grunt ( like Tim Taylor)....I love the power and the ...oh, I know I need to calm down. Hubby asked me to stop cleaning everything. their isn't enough time to get everything else done if I keep working with it. So I put it in the basement last night, but I might no ...no I will not get it back out..... It is all looking so good and the big day is just around the corner, Judy is excited and a little nervous too. But I am sure all will be great. Check back for pictures of the Bride and Groom.
Have a great weekend !
