One of the best shopping days

For anyone that lives in an area where Dillards is located one of their best shopping days is coming up. New Years day everything in the store that has a sale tag is half off, they have been doing this for the last couple of years. I am planning on being there when the store opens.

Chewable cards

Spot received a Crunch card for Christmas, they even come with an envelope. Aren't they cute? He took it outside so I would not get it.

Christmas morning and no one wants their picture taken until they look good:)

What I did today

The weather in Albuquerque was great for this time of year. Clear skies for three days and no snow. On the fourth day it was overcast but still no rain or snow. This is a good thing and I thought would mean no flight delays. I had a flight at 3:30pm so I arrived at the airport at 1:40pm. I already knew the flight was going to be delayed until 4:45pm per the airlines website. I sat in the airport for 6 hours and finally flew standby on a 7:30pm flight, my original flight was scheduled to now depart at 8:25pm. The last two hours I talked to three flight attendants waiting for their flight. I did not know they do not get paid while their are sitting and waiting, one good thing they do not have to do expense reports for their travel, can you imagine what a mess that would be.

What service or lack of

I was trying to find a book my mom wanted so I went online to a few book stores. One of the stores websites allows you to reserve a book online for pickup in the store later that day if it is available. When I checked the availability it said Might be available in the store. I then entered my email address and I book I wanted. The website stated within 2 hours I would receive a response back. Six hours later I received an email the book was not avaialble but I could order it online and receive within 2-4 weeks. Well, I thought I could find the book if I went to the store anyway. I go to the section where the new hardcover books should be and what do I find...yes the book I wanted! So happy:)

Party at Buca!

Last night we had our Christmas party at Buca di Beppo. The food was delicious and great company. Here are a few pictures of the attendees, unfortunately I was not able to capture Tarzan sitting on Santa's lap. Steve said he would be selling copies if anyone wants one.

Happy Birthday Hollie!

Wow 13 years old! I hope you have a great time at your party.

All I Really Want

I was looking for the lyrics to a Christmas song from Steven Curtis Chapman " All I Really Want" . I could not find the lyrics but found him singing the song and I also came across this one for Jane.

Jordan and his new Jordans

New shoes for the boys! Jordan was so happy to get new shoes today, he loves them. They make him run faster and jump farther, he demonstrated this in the store. Jacob got new shoes also but at first was not excited at all, he did enjoy his ice cream:)

At the Car Wash

My car was filthy! Let's see how soon it will rain.

Little ways that you can Make a Difference could be:

Buying someone a cup of coffee in line behind you at Starbucks
Buying someone lunch in line behind you at the drive thru
Writing someone an encouraging note
Shoveling your neighbor's driveway (not in Phoenix)
Buying someone some groceries
Sending a friend a card
Picking up the tab for someone in a restaurant
Watching your neighbor's kids while they go out
Baking some cookies and taking them to work…
The possibilities are endless! And remember… "Little things don't mean a lot, they mean EVERYTHING!"

Tempe Arts Festival

I went to the Arts Festival yesterday with Lenore. There were a lot of cool things to see; two tone metal crosses, glass vases, jewelry made from old lunch pails with cartoon characters(yes they had Snoopy and I did not buy any)and kettle corn of course. I wanted kettlecorn and forgot to get some before I left:(
This this a tshirt one of the vendors had for sale.

Punky and the Duke

Who remembers Punky Brewster? I bought this for $1.99 on Black friday along with the DVD of the Duke. John Wayne always reminds me of my dad, he loved to watch him.

How to hide a package

I received a package from UPS today. When I got home this is how they decided to "hide" it. I was excited to get my present I bought for myself. Hmmm, do I really like them? Trying to decide.
