As the song says, "It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas…" except for the weather. It has been in the 60’s during the day here for the last week. I don’t think there is much chance of snow but around here you never know. I am way behind on my shopping so today I hope to get a lot of that out of the way. About the only thing I have gotten so far is a really nice Lionel train set for Kirk. The set came in two boxes, one with the engine, cars, and scenery and the other with about 9 feet of track. I really can’t wait to set all that up. My brothers and I had a fantastic train set when we were kids and we really loved it. Starting this coming Friday I will be off work until after the New Year, so I am really looking forward to that also. This Sunday we are having family over for a Christmas dinner and for Christmas day we will be at my brother Chris and his wife Gina’s house. We have put up three (yes three) Christmas trees in the house. One is the traditional big tree (artificial) while another is a smaller green artificial tree and the other is a white artificial tree. We have also put up two wreathes outside. I think the only other decoration we wil be putting up is some lights in the front windows. Well, that is it for now. Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all.
