BABY ITS COLD OUTSIDE!

Well as i am here laying in bed waking up for the third time today i noticed how cold it is outside the blankets.  Yes, we have heaters for the house i just forgot to get them out of the shed because you know I am still recovering from surgery.  However, I am such a lucky mom my kids did help me cover my plants with sheets to hopefully save them through this cold spell. Then I wondered why it felt so cold and holy cold snap its 36 degrees.  By golly I forget we get this cold this is Florida.  But no seriously I prepped earlier today, my kids prefer blankets to heaters and I got out thier coats for school.  I just hope hubby remembered to take his coat out of his trunk. Well everyone stay warm where ever you are tonight.  Also, I dont care if I sound like a public safety announcement please heat your home safely.                               

TURKEY DAY 2016!!

When I was a kid I would have to say Thanksgiving was such memorable occasion.  It didn't matter whose house it was at but for me we were all together as a family.  My Grandmother whom I was extremely close to even said she would have done anything to have those days back again once all of us kids had gotten older.  If we got to my families house early the first thing us kids would have done was watch the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade.  My Poppy normally would join us kids for this while sneaking us kids little candies. Then after the parade we would go to my cousins playroom and hangout, then once the ladies of the house had to finish prepping everything the adults would put us in our warmest coats and send us outside, When we were at my aunt and uncles house that would include our uncle taking us on turns through the woods in tubes or in the cart behind his three-wheeler. Then there was the dinner!! We had the adult tables and the kids table, us kids used to joke we cou

HOW A LITTLE TYPO MADE FOR A AMAZING CHRISTMAS TRADITION!

How The NORAD Santa Tracker Got Its Start Okay guys and girls first for those who really know me they know that I am a compulsive obsessive person when it comes to the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays.  I am also in love with a good story as much as the next person. So last year when I stumbled upon this story about how NORAD started tracking Santa I had a good chuckle.  Then to my surprise I was looking at pins on Pinterest tonight and behold the story of the Santa Tracker reappeared in my thread so I figured it was fate I had to share the story with the world.   The whole NORAD tracking Santa started because of a typo in the paper. Here is a picture of the ad that Sears Roebuck and Co. posted over 60 years ago.  They didn't realize it but that phone number was not to the Santa they had in place but to the Continental Air Defense Center (Now NORAD). How would you have felt as someone who works at a military installation  getting a call on the red phone hearing
