Having to ship all the Christmas gifts north, and in a timely manor, can be a bit hectic!
I think more than one package will arrive just in time for Boxing Day.

Last weekend, we went to dinner at a strip mall Chinese food place. Sounds yummy, huh?
It was YUMMY! This has to be the nicest Chinese food place I have even been too.
The decor was lovely; beautiful lighting, wall treatments, and art. Seriously!
The food was very good as well!

Bob has a new ride! Nice huh! It's a Honda S2000.
Bob says that it will be a collectable one day.
He wasn't going to get it because it isn't practical.
I told him he should definitely get it, and we would be practical in the CRV.
Ivan has been into skateboarding lately....loads of it.
"Mama, come watch this trick".
The word of the day is EPIC!
He also has been golfing with "the papa"
The child has a knack for fashion!
An unexpected package arrived in the mail. I love packages!!!!
It was from my lovely Beach Bosom friend Karen....She's such a HOOT!
|I do love me some owls!|
The house is decorated, and the presents for the most part are wrapped.
My family has been asking for some of these! Can you just taste them???
