The Holidays are Here!!!

I keep hoping I will find more time to blog, but that just has not happened in the past 6 months since I opened my little store.  I did take a week off early in November and went to Boston to celebrate the 1st Birthday of my youngest grandchild.  Just wanted to post a few pics of the Birthday Girl and her Big Brother. 
Hooray, I am '1' today!

Big Brother really likes chocolate cupcakes...
Here is what big brother looks like when he does not have a face full of cake!  

I had so much fun with these babies.  The are cute, good and loving to their Gramma Keli.  They will be coming to visit me for Christmas, and I am so excited.  It is always wonderful when all three of my children and all my grandchildren are in the same place during the holidays.  

My little store is doing well.  I have officially been opened for 6 months and 4 days.  I have met so many nice people.  I really enjoy getting to see people be able to buy affordable nice clothing for their children.  I have also had the opportunity to donate some clothing and accessories to some people who were in need.  The part of owning a resale shop is the 'in your face' realization that there are so many people that struggle daily just to feed and cloth their children.  I have been so lucky that there are many people who have donated clothes and other child related items to my shop.  These donations allow me to help when needed, and also to keep the prices very low in my little store.   All in all, owning this little store has been a great experience. 

I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving, and that you are ready for Christmas.  I am trying to get my self to go up in the attic and get down all the decorations, so far I have found an excuse not to do it, but I think I am getting down to the wire and will need to 'suck it up' and get up there soon.
