To get you in the Mood to Decorate ? How about some movie fun ?
So both my husband and I worked retail too many years . And now that my son is growing up -we even considered the trip verses the holiday. It;s common practice of friends that live on parade routes for Mardi Gras.
Put my Mom & Dad are getting older and they enjoy having us all together. So instead we will stay home with the family.
Love the decorations in the movie but at Moms we will keep it pretty simple. But I have friend that do the whole Krank decoration thing. But we do have a holiday traditions of piling into a vehicle and driving around looking at lights.
So do you decorated outside ? When ? Do you leave them year round? (LOL) Does your lights have there own generator ? Just asking.
Have Fun – Lisa

Why Red Poppies?

After the First World War, the poppy was adopted as a symbol of Remembrance.

I spent this Morning helping – so Saturday is off to a late start. Now some family chores- helping with school work ( British Lit) & may be some crafting time.All in a rainy Saturday from Louisiana.
