And New Year's Is Right Around The Corner...

Hello fellow bloggers!

You thought I forgot about you didn't ya?

All's well and we snuck off to Philly for a little break from reality. Hubby's in-laws are from Philadelphia and we needed a break from Bambi, our closest neighbor. (Let me tell you, he LOVES shrubs!)

Anyskittle, I don't know what all the fuss is about the city. Personally I think it is overrated. Sorry no offense to anyone who resides in the city, but I prefer Bambi leaving me little 'treats' on my doorstep to someone drunk trying to get in my door!

But so far so good; surprisingly Philly has been good to us all. We came here Saturday night, and we are currently at my sister-in-laws house. The children are enjoying the sights, smells, and scenery that the city has to offer. But I believe, that if we stay any longer my children will want to permanently stay. To them, this is real living and they don't really want to leave. But alas, all good things MUST come to an end.

We plan to make it back home Friday which is just a six hour drive, and I will then give you all the scoop on everything that has happened thus far.

We have gone shopping to catch some of the after Christmas sales and got some really good bargains, but I grew tired after store # 16. We still had 184 more stores to go to. Franklin Mills mall has over I believe 200 stores and is one of the biggest malls in PA.

My daughters went to Macy's for the first time. They didn't buy anything as their budget won't allow it, so all they did was some window shopping and took some pics with some handsome mannequins. The real boys weren't around, so I guess they had to go for the next best thing!

Well, I gotta go and sight-see the city some more and catch up with the other half of relatives that I didn't meet. Hopefully, New Year's will be a blast!

It may not be NYC but it's close enough.

Have a great holiday Bibi, I was just thinking we hadn't heard from you in awhile. We'll talk to you in the New Year!

Hey Bibi

Now I am sad, I didn't know you were going or I would have packed up and met you for some serious shopping! You are so right PA has the best shopping!

I just wanted to stop by and thank you for sharing my crazy world and for all the laughs this year!
I hope 2009 is a blessed and safe year.

Happy New Year
Take Care

Happy New Year, BIBI!

Enjoy Philly! In the end, it's very nice visiting other places (and the best part is returning to the comfort of your own home). My younger sis went to college in Philly and lived there for a couple years after graduation.

I'm kind of glad she's back near my mom and other sisters. Her job was robbed and the guy made her leave with him, walk a little bit, and then he let her go. That freaked me the hell out!
