O Christmas Tree, O Christmas Tree

We decided today was the annual family bonding & going out to the woods to cut down a christmas tree.    We ended up at the Elms which is right around the corner from Scott's house & where Jessie now works on weekends.

 That's why she is wearing the red apron...she make the apple cider donuts in the little cafe they have.  It's so funny because her other part time job she has is at Focastle ( apple orchard/gift shop/ cafe) & her job there is making donuts!
 Meghan & Jessie
 LiLi & I wandered over to see Santa' reindeer & all we found were these guys.....can't imagine how he's going to pull that big sleigh with these little goats!

 When we found everyone again they were looking at the pre-cut trees!
 Within five minutes each of them had the perfect tree!
 It's never been that quick before!  As you can tell it was a beautiful day, reasonably warm & they picked out trees that quickly.....normally we trudge through the woods for hours freezing our tushies!

 "Hurry Dad...it's getting heavy"
 We had to go for a trolley ride out to the fields
 We were just going to ride out & back but LiLi spotted this fun slide that was from their "fall fun stuff" & had to go down it.
 As you can see it is pretty long but she wasn't the least bit scared!

 She went down the first time with Scott but came out alone as he got stuck!

That's our trolley ride back in the distance.

It was a really nice day & no one missed trudging forever through the fields looking for the "perfect" tree!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO MY BIG BROTHER

Happy birthday to my big brother Terry...........have a wonderful day!

My car is pigeon-toed!!!!!!

I get out of work on Thurs at 1:00 & usually play golf with my buddy Dominic.  Yesterday was kinda rainy, blustery so we decided not to play.  I headed up to the mall but got side-tracked on the way.  One of the things on my extremely long to-do list was "get two more tires for my car".  I pulled into Mavis Tire & checked to see how long it would take.

MISTAKE #1

I was told around 20 mins before my car would get in so I decided to wait.

MISTAKE #2!

About an hour later my overly friendly mechanic wants to show me something.....how did I know it wasn't going to be pretty!  My rear "struts".....whatever they may be.... were leaking causing the rear end to lift up when I braked causing my car to "pigeon toe" which in turn was making my  new tires .....that were put on the front wheels in August......to wear unevenly.  As if that wasn't enough for my brain to digest one of the front wheels had a bad wheel bearing.







Needless to say at that poin…

Round Lake Village

Every time we go to Round Lake we wander down streets we've never seen before
A little people house
This garden was gorgeous
Look if you buy this house you definitely need to get along with your neighbors!
This house is even smaller & comes with a golf cart
This house really fascinated me
That stonework is incredible
They need to make it a little more welcoming

They are still working on my house

I would love to see the inside.......I hope they plan on selling it & then I can go to an open house
"Mama I have flyaway ears again today!"
