Today has been a great day!!
The girls are gone on a weekend youth function. The oldest called this morning and is having a great time! I was surprised to hear from her, but very glad that she wanted to share about the good things happening to her. She said her sister is having a good time too.
Hubby and I woke up early and we just relaxed around the house. I watched an excellent movie called "The Ultimate Gift". If you haven't seen this, you really should. It was even better than the one I told you about the other day. I loved "Saving Sarah Cain", but this was even better. I cried and laughed. It was great. I can't wait to watch it with the girls.
After that we got cleaned up and worked on the house a little. Hubby ordered us a GPS so we can do some geocaching. It's a new hobby I found out about through some friends. I went with 2 girls from work Thursday night and we had a blast. Hubby loves gadgets and was all about getting a GPS. He says he thinks he'll like geocaching too. But if not, I know he'll love tinkering with the GPS. If you want to know more about geocaching to to http://www.geocaching.com/. I'm sure I'll be talking about it some in the future too.
Besides ordering a GPS, he also ordered Christmas presents for both of our parents. We're getting them Kodak Digital Picture Frames. I think they will love this. The love having pictures of their family and friends and now they'll be able to display all of them and not have to keep them hidden in a box. I've made both mom's a couple of scrapbooks of the grandkids, but sometimes they can be a little cumbersome for them and with this they'll be able to put tons of pictures on the memory card and let it run whenever they want. I hope they love it as much as I think they will.
So now I've been bitten by the Christmas bug. I can't wait to start decorating (although I'm going to try to make myself wait until Thanksgiving Weekend. I love getting gifts for my girls and decorating the house and burning candles to make the house smell like cinnamon (so it smells like I'm baking even if I'm not.) Hubby has already put a Christmas Screen Saver on the computer and I've heard a few Christmas tunes playing. I think he's even more ready than I am.
We're also planning on participating in the 2008 Home Christmas Tour that Boomama is putting together. I think this is going to be so much fun. Be sure to click on the button on my sidebar and check it out on her site.
Now back to today. After cleaning the house and cleaning ourselves up, we met some friends for lunch at an Amish restaurant in a neighboring town. It was so nice to just sit down and talk with friends and have a great time. This is something hubby and I don't do nearly often enough. I'm so glad we did today. Our friends are so much fun to be with and we just laughed and shared and had a great lunch.
After that we came home and I just packed away most of my summer clothes and pulled out the fall and winter clothes. I should be going thru them now, but I decided it was time to take a break and so I'm here typing this.
We'll be heading to my parents soon to visit with them and any of the brothers and sisters and their families that show up. Can't wait to see everyone.
See I told you, This is a great day!!!
