Stella is traveling, Kate is still in Hawaii, and Carla is in NY.
Busy, busy Quills!
Hope y'all won't be sick of seeing me two blogs in a row. :-)
I survived my Black Friday shopping and got lots of fun stuff for the nieces. This year, I have done more than my fair share to help spur the economy!
A few days ago I took my five-year old grandson shopping with me at Toys R Us to get some things for Toys for Tots. For a few months now, hubby and I saved change in a special jar, then he and the grandson rolled it, and the grandson and I shopped.
We got quite the haul and truly enjoyed ourselves.
It did my heart good to hear my grandson decide what a "little girl" or "little boy" might like best. He was very enthusiastic, and very into the idea of giving to those with special needs.
One cute toy we saw, we loved so much that I have to share it. In fact, I want one! When I get a chance, I'll be back at Toys R Us for my own.
Isn't that adorable? It makes all these long funny noises, and that mouth! LOL. Love it.
If you're like me and like to pick up stuff for your animals too, take a look at this fun cat game/toy. Liger and KiKi love it, but Grim doesn't quite understand. He tends to pounce on the ball, and then run away.
For some of those "hard to buy for" relatives, I picked out memory boards. I like them because you can easily change out the photos so visitors always have some new pictures to look at.
I have a lot of the family gatherings at my house, and I try to always take pictures and later share them in the memory boards.
I have two right by my front door!
While everyone was at my house for Thanksgiving, I took some good photos, and put them into memory boards before wrapping them as gifts.
The personal touch!
This is the first Christmas without my dad, and it's bound to have some pretty sad moments. But I hope everyone will remember him with a smile. He enjoyed the big get togethers, and he was always the first to go around and say "Hi" to everyone.
Will you be missing someone special this Christmas?
Do you have any special gifts planned, or are you a gift certificate kind of person?
Have you ever seen a kid's toy that you had to have for yourself? LOL. I'm terrible for doing that!
Do you buy for your pets?
By the way, if you're not on my Facebook Fan Page, now's the time to get there.
Go to the "Discussions" to get in on some holiday giving from me. :-)
Whatever your plans, I hope you're enjoying the Holiday Season!
