The Polar Express

Last Saturday night we took the family to ride the Christmas Pajama Train. We called it "The Polar Express" because we had just watched the movie and Noah really identified with that. It was really a lot of fun...kind of longgggggg....but still fun. The train was decorated for Christmas and the interior was really awesome; all original. We stopped on the Arkansas River bridge and had hot chocolate and cookies and then at the train station in Van Buren, Santa was there and the boys got to tell him what they wanted and sit in his lap. Overall it was a great memory.

Book Review

When I first received this book to review, I hadn’t read any of the Triple Treat series but the book was good as a stand alone. Cassidy, Allison, and Nicole have helped solve several cases but now somebody is after them. After one of them is murdered, they are determined to find who did this even if it means putting themselves in harms way.  When it appears the police have the killer in custody, he strikes again. Not knowing who to trust, Nicole and Allison go undercover for an intricate and deadly cat-and-mouse game where nothing can be taken at face value . . . and nothing will ever be the same. This is definitely a must-read, full of twists and turns that are very unexpected.

***A copy of this e-book was provided to me free of charge by Thomas Nelson Publishing in exchange for a fair and honest review.

Before, after and inbetween

I finally have a "before" picture of my last project, plus pictures of a few of the projects I was working on last week for the vintage market show.
This is my take on several Pinterest ideas. I love Pinterest, probably too much. 
We made several colors of ornament wreaths
 This was our booth at the Vintage market show this past weekend.

Work, work, work......

I have been working like a crazy woman this week getting ready for the flea market this weekend. Nothing like waiting until the last minute to get stuff ready. Hopefully I can remember to take some pictures but maybe you just need to come out to the Phoenix Village Expo Center on Saturday and see everything we have. Lots of vintage, Christmas, etc. See you there I hope.

Where we live no one comes to our house to trick or treat but this year we had two come.......the yellow Power Ranger and a blue monster.
Before I could get pictures of both boys in their costumes, Noah had his stripped off because he was hot. I did get a cute picture of my little Blue Monster.
Last weekend the boys "painted" a picture for their rooms. At least I think they had fun doing it and it wasn't too messy.
