Back to Bass Pro Shop

On Thursday, we had made plans to go so the girls could visit with Santa.  They came after school and we headed to see Santa Claus.  They pose with St. Nick!  I was reminding them of the times when they were little, how they used to cry when seeing Santa.

After all that fun, we also had dinner at the Isla Morada Restaurant there at Bass Pro Shop.  As Lari says, it is a Family Tradition during Christmas time to come to Bass Pro Shop for dinner.  We had a delicious meal.

Getting Ready for Christmas

Yes, getting ready for Christmas and we haven’t even gotten to Thanksgiving.  Manuel got into the attic to get my things down so that the girls could help me decorate.  Well, he got into it, with them.  Since we have a lot less space in this home, I bought a small tree and I sold the old tree.

Larissa and Arianna really know about decorating.  They are really quick, too.

Arianna was very clever.  She loves playing with the Bechard Trains (Joe Bechard made these trains) and I purchased 3.  One for Larissa, one for Arianna and one for Corina.  They just love these trains.    Anyway, Arianna put these two trains together and played all evening with them around the house.

All done.  This would have taken me hours to get done, but these two little ones got it done quickly.  It is great having them to help even though I do not like them growing up so fast.  They are my little helpers.

Manuel Jr.’s Birthday

November 1, we celebrated by starting our day going to Brunch at Eilan Hotel and Resort.  We had an delicious brunch then we walked out to the grounds where they were having a farmers market.  They had great booths.  The day was just beautiful: cool and sunny. 

The area is all decorated for Christmas already.

This hotel is just about 2 miles from our house.  It is just beautiful.  Will have to come back again.

Happy Halloween

Today, I picked up Lari from School and Dad brought Arianna later.  Lari has Homecoming at TMI tonite, so she will trick or treat early.  She did not have an outfit so she and I put some things together for her to wear.  Arianna wore her Greek Goddess outfit.
