Just sitting here thinking about the holidays. Frank and I have a tradition that every Thanksgiving we take the kids to the Detroit parade. We get up around 5:30 so that we can leave by 6:30 to hold a spot up front! It is well worth going to, and kinda sets your minds to the up coming holidays. The kids adore the huge balloons, and shout out SPIN IT, SPIN IT! They like when the balloon holders do that. They LOVE when floats throw out stuff to the kids.
After the parade we go to my mother's and father's house for a huge dinner! Mom does the works for Thanksgiving. Normally she can do most of it herself, but this year me and my sister are going over the day before and get alot of the preparation done for her, since she has a hard time because of the stroke. I would do it here at my house but my house is way to small to entertain so many folks.
I can't believe that Christmas is around the corner! I'm trying to put together some kind of Christmas for my kids. Between my mother and father and I, the kids should get everything that they asked for and more. Times get tight in this house but i will always try and make do.
I wanted to put out my x-mas decorations on Friday but it rained alllllll day! I am hoping to get to that Sunday day or some where on Monday. This will be exciting because last year after x-mas i bought so much stuff after the holidays (really cheap) that i don't even remember what i got, but i know that there is alot.
I went Friday and got my mother's gift for Christmas, I am just hoping that she likes it! I'm pretty sure that she will. I looked everywhere for it...I knew what i wanted to get her and i finally found it. I will have to tell you what it is after the holidays, because she reads my blogs..lol
Well i will write more later..
