Birthday - Disneyland and dinner with cousins

Friday, January 24, 2014

Went to Disneyland on my birthday 1/13 - we were there from 10:30 a.m. until 7:00 p.m. - so much walking. It was a nice warm day and not too crowded - enjoyed walking and getting on some rides. We ate at the Wine restaurant and had a salad which was very good and a yummy appetizer.

Sunday - went to dinner with cousins at Wood Ranch - their food is so good - I just had a sandwich but everybody had their chicken and ribs - which are very tasty.

Still celebrating my birthday with friends and family which makes January a very special month for me :)

Happy that I haven't put on any weight - being careful during the week but also not eating too much when I go out to dinner.

Few Home Christmas Decorations & Mom

Sunday, December 22, 2013

Decorated only a little this year - I usually put more decorations on the stairs but since my mom is staying with me - have to be careful with what I put. She got her nails done so we took a picture of them. She was very happy to have red nail polish.

    I hope you Disney trip was well worth the fortune it takes to enjoy the experience. I love everyminute but they do not make it cheap or affordable. Maybe I am just a tightwad! I hope you got some exercise and enjoyed the food! Glad you are back and thanks for all your kind words and thoughts! emoticon emoticon emoticon

    AWESOME, glad you are putting your Mom's safety as a priority to the decorating. I did too much this year which comes across as tacky but it's home and that's the important thing! Yours is very lovely, thanks so much for sharing!

Merry Christmas! emoticon

Adventure Park & Disneyland

Sunday, December 22, 2013

Attached are pictures of Adventure Park and Disneyland. We went on December 1st and December 15th. Adventure Park is cute with their decorations. Disneyland was so crowded on December 15th that we just walked around and looked at the decorations. The sky was such an interesting color that day and thought it was kind of cool.

    I love the Thanksgiving decorations!! Especially the hairy ones. LOL. Cats always seem to want to get right into things like this. My former cat always had to climb the Christmas tree and play with the ornaments.

Few Halloween Decorations

Saturday, October 05, 2013

This year decorated a little for Halloween - had my cousin do a cemetery - (items from Lemax) I thought it came out pretty good. Also just decorated a little in the front porch area - with pumpkins, lights & a Scary Crow.

    That's the spirit. Looks good. Love the Moon. I was just telling Dennis we need to pick up a Pumpkin to put by my garden rabbit. I need a new plant by it as well. I'm thinking of a Mum. emoticon emoticon emoticon
