    I'm around...just had a play date with one of my best friends & her little girls. Boys are down for a nap & now I'm working on the baby.

    Love the new pic, Lauryn! I just did my Christmas cards on vistaprint.com. Pretty reasonable prices! Another one I saw was peartreegreetings.com.

    Thanks for those sites! :flowerforyou: I'll have to check them out. I did the usual Walmart and Walgreens and KodakGallery, and so far, I have been highly UNimpressed with their photo card designs this year.

    My husband works for the Walgeens distribution center here & they give us a crazy discount on their cards this time of year, but they're not my style. I'd more of a simple, elegant design chick instead of a Peanuts or Tweety Bird girl. My kids are characters enough, they don't need any help. LOL

    Not to bring the mood of this thread down, but did anyone else hear about that poor man at Walmart today?! I just read the article on msn & am shocked by the entire thing. :cry:

    AMAZED at that article.
    People are PIGS.
    To trample an employee.
    Poor guy was only 34, so having a heart attack at that age, I wonder if there weren't other genetic/health dispositions that led to his early demise...

    Oh, I know. It just broke my heart & reminded me of what AreWeThereYet said on another thread about her black Friday experience at her previous place of employment. People are so clueless sometimes & it really makes you wonder how these certain folks really feel about the Christmas season. So sad.

    My mom & I went out one year & decided it wasn't worth it. We didn't have too many issues with crowds or anything like that but just the attitude of everyone that was out was poor. People were on a mission & they didn't care who was in their way. Personally, I have more problems returning things after Christmas. By then, all the retail workers are just finished & exhausted & not nearly as pleasant as normal. Good thing I do most my shopping online. LOL

    There are so few gifts that I give that go on sale ONLY on Black Friday that it's not worth wasting my vacation at work to take the day off.

    I prefer online shopping this time of year too.... lots of 'online only' deals today, although I haven't been checking them out... because I'm at work (and too busy playing on MFP :laugh: )

    HA! Kohls was having a pretty decent sale online today through 1pm EST. I'm done Christmas shopping, but was tempted by a pair of earrings. I lost one of my diamond studs yesterday & my ears feel naked! I resisted the urge, though. Maybe someone else will buy me better ones. :bigsmile:

    So, does anyone have anything special on their list to Santa this year?

    My husband and I just got finished decorating the outside of the house for Christmas! It was really cold, but since we had the time off we took advantage of it.

    The rest of the day will be pretty mellow - we're watching Disney movies - currently, The Lady and the Tramp.

    Got a favorite Disney movie?

    Have fun, Lauryn! 3 Thanksgivings...I wouldn't survive.

    I'll have to check out that webcam to show my boys. It sounds like something they would love!

    Hmmm...favorite Disney Movie. I love Toy Story & Cars, or maybe it is just that my boys love those movies so much I think I do, too? My favorite from way back would have to be Fox & The Hound. I cry like a baby every single time she leaves that fox in the woods, but I still love it. Lady & the Tramp is a good one, too. Heck, I love just about every Disney movie you could throw at me. :bigsmile:
