Then I had a four foot tree that we placed next to the front door - also has lights. I fell in love with a cute scrooge top hat from Hobby Lobby. So (with a coupon) I picked it up to top off the tree. So cute.
Tonight, we ran over to the beach because the Margarittaville Hotel had artist showing some of the items off so we went to that. So much fun. There was a steel drum performing adding to the festivities.
Coming up in the next week is the lighted boat parade and the surfing santa parade. I won't miss them!
Shopping is on the schedule. Nicole, my wonderful friend down the street, and I are making lots of cookies and of course there are gifts to wrap. And the beach, oh, yes the beach. Dad and I try to get there a couple times a week.
It is beginning to feel more like home here - even thought when I talk about Indiana I say "home". But memories help to make it feel like home and we have made so many wonderful memories in the last four months. Tomorrow is Church, then finish making Christmas Cards and get the dinning room table clear of card scraps so we can start wrapping gifts.
Miss the snow - don't miss shoveling. Miss my bands but they are in good hands with Kelly. Miss my brothers but they will both be here soon. Miss my Indiana friends but I am coming to the realization that we can live apart and be close, wonderful friends. Thank goodness for cell phones. Ah......life is good. Hope everyone is having a wonderful holiday season.
