After Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving is over...and the Christmas season has begun. My mother in law cooked 40 lbs of turkey to feed about 18 people and we had maybe 4 lbs left...

Friday was the Fantasy of Lights Parade in Howell, MI. It is a parade my husband, son, and I take in every year. It has gotten considerably smaller, when I was a child, there was at least 60 floats every year, this year I think there might have been 15. Chalk it up to the economy, I suppose. The floats were still beautiful. The bands played great. I think there were more people there than usual. (usual, being 20,000). It was nice to not have to wear 3 snowsuits, 4 sweatshirts, 2 pairs of jeans, 3 pairs of long johns....well you get the picture, to go to the parade this year. It never seems to fail it is sleeting about parade time, not this year. It was 60 degrees. I wondered if I was in Florida.

My husband is building my son's Christmas present this year. We wanted to get him a barn, for his tractors and animals, but all we could find in the store were cheaply made plastic ones. So, we decided Dale will build it. The final dimensions my husband came up with are 24 inches wide, by 30 in long, by 24 inches high. He says after it is put together, he is going to stand on it. If it will take him standing on it, it should hold up to all the abuse my 5 year old can give it. I will post a picture when it is done.

the problem of too many email accounts

I have about 7 different email accounts...at least...the problem is three of them are associated with google...either gmail or my one yahoo account that I used to create this blog.

I have trentonsmom2006@yahoo and trentonsmom2006@gmail...plus 2 more gmail accounts, one I cannot remember, but that's not the point...

For about a week maybe longer, I have been trying to get into my blog...it kept telling me my password was incorrect....

so I sit there telling myself, now I know that's the password...retype it...password incorrect...ARGH!

I never checked the username...guess what...i had the wrong user name...silly me!

so now that I have the correct user name entered, I am back on my little blogger world...excuse the absence, i was having a brain fart!
