After such an amazing weekend, today is a great day for LAUNDRY, GROCERY SHOPPING (MATES ARE HUNGRY) PREPPING FOR WHAT EVERYONE HAS GOING ON THIS WEEK. I’m glad we are in tune to (most of the time) trying to pull everything together to make a successful week for all. BUT MOSTLY WE WILL REFLECT ON THE AWESOME WEEKEND, TELLING STORIES.
EVERYTIME WE LEAVING LUDINGTON WE SPEND THE NEXT WEEK, HOUSE HUNTING ON LINE. SEEING IF WE COULD MAKE THE MOVE. ITS SERIOUSLY LIKE A YEAR AROUND VACATION.
My main mate would go in a heartbeat, GOODBYE LITTLE COMMERCE MICHIGAN. Hunting and fishing at his beck and call, I personally love how the town is such an outdoors town , even in the heart of winter, you will see a ton of people jogging, and trek biking in the snow. And the fact that Crystal Mt is only an hour away is a huge selling point to me. Crystal Mt is a fun resort to ski/snowboard at.
But for now the castle will start to prepare for Christmas, the elf arrives tonight. There was a knock at the door, and DINO had to open it…. and there was the ELF. Waiting to see what he names it. Carter is in charge of the first ELF visit tomorrow. So the fun begins, starting to Christmas decorate. The main mate is in charge of the tree. We put an addition on last year, the living room is cathedral and all I’ve heard about all summer was how big our tree is going to be. MAKES ME A LITTLE NERVOUS!!!!! Stin said he’d go get us a tree tonight ……. real and already decorated. UMMMMMM is he possibly taking the neighbors yard decoration. lol
SPEAKING OF TREES?????? REAL OR FAKE??????
We’ve done both. Fake when I was married ( kinda like the marriage lol). And real when the main mate arrived. Love the smell of the real tree. Love everything about chopping it down, or picking out. Back when Ashley and Trevor were in high school, my mainmate got soooooo into decorating the house, he put up a huge blow up Scooby Do on the roof of the house. It was awesome, all their friends were like “why did your parents put that on the house” mainly to drive them crazy, but also carter was still super young and loved the whole magic at Christmas. Growing up we had both also. One year we got the tree a little early and it pretty much died, fell over a bunch of times. Keep in mind that there was a bunch of little kids running around. Well the tree died. SO my dad. He can seriously build/fix anything, made us a home made tree. NO LIE!!!! AND TO THIS DAY IT WAS ONE OF THE BEST XMAS EVER. WE ALL LOVED THE TREE. WE STILL ALL TALK ABOUT IT. I DONT BLAME MY PARENTS AT ALL FOR NOT BUYING ANOTHER HUGE TREE FOR THE FAMILY. WE STILL HAD A TREE, THE BEST ONE ON THE STREET. SO IF YOU WERE WONDERING WHY I LET SCOOBY DO GO ON THE ROOF, THAT MIGHT HELP ANSWER THAT QUESTION.
Eventually SCOOBY DO came down and Snoopy appeared. But Snoopy was a little smaller and fit the decor much better than the HUGE SCOOBY DO!!!! I’m laughing at this as I type.
But I really feel bad is for one of my blondes. Aka. batman/green Ninja he is in melt down crisis over why he can’t have a xmas present early. Its so hard on kids learning the whole gift giving. He’s had a long weekend partying up north. He’s was so excited to come home and give Dino the gift they bought him. Time to a child is a hard thing. Its all part of the growing up and Christmas fun. I just love these grandkids so much, its going to sooooo much fun this year.
Remember how we are doing the ludington rock Facebook fun, well we just found out that my “snowman” was found. It made it to the website, but the funniest thing about the snowman was…….. when I was done painting it Dino said “awww look momma, granny made OLAF” from the frozen movie.
ALSO TODAY WAS “NO MAKEUP” DAY……. DIDN’T REALLY PLAN ON THAT BUT AFTER THE GYM I HAD TONS OF STUFF TO DO, AND JUST LOOKED IN THE MIRROR AND HAD THE TOTALLY CRAZY HAIR DONT CARE, NO MAKE -UP LOOOK GOING ON, THEN I WENT TO LEAVE AGAIN THIS EVENING WITH STIN AND HE SAID……MOM I THINK A BIRD JUST FLEW OUT OF THE NEST ON YOUR HEAD. REALLY!!!!!! LOL LOL LOL
YOU BE THE JUDGE.
GOING TO FINISH THIS EVENING WITH A RELAXING SHOW. AND START THE WORK WEEK OFF REFRESHED.
GOOD NITE FROM CARTER & LOVER
