The First Sunday!

It's the first Sunday of November.  Thanksgiving in the USA is only three weeks away. Time for talking turkey - gobble, gobble, gobble.

Today I had plans to spend the entire day indoors but it was not to be.  My mom has been having trouble with her truck and finally was able to get it fixed.  Her catalytic (sp?) converter had to be replaced. 

So while her truck was being worked on we had breakfast at IHOP and then went shopping at the nearby shopping center.  We had loads of fun.  First we went in to Marshall's where I picked out three nice outfits for gifts.  And I saw the cutest little baby bib that said, "Baby's First Thanksgiving."  I may have to go back and get that for my great-niece. 

Then we went in to Dollar Tree where I found two Christmas movies on VHS: "Veggie Tales The Toy That Saved Christmas" and "Surviving Christmas."  (Yes I still own a VHS player - lol)  I am going to watch them tonight.

Thanks so much for sharing. I know many families also enjoy watching movies together during the holidays. If you enjoy great holiday family films, I have one you need to check out. I just wanted to take the time to share a new film that I have recently discovered. I know in this day & age, we are always looking for good films that can be shared with our families. Homeless for the Holidays is one of these films, & I highly recommend it! As an executive loses it all & has to take a job at a burger shack, this film is also one that many of us are able to relate to today. Based on the real life experience of the director, this is great for a family holiday movie night. Enjoy!

I have so many HVS tapes that when our player died, I bought a dual vhs and dvd player.

Sounds like you had a great day!

We still own a VCR as well and have some old VHS movies that we watch.
