Packing Up and Leaving



Grab a small bag throw in a couple pairs of jeans, a few warm shirts, a jacket, toothbrush, and few more things, fill the truck up with gas and I'm on my way for a few days with Jenn and her mother~in~law and her sister~in~law also named Jennipher and were headed to Branson, Missouri. If you ever have the opportunity to go there and see the Christmas shows or Silver Dollar City once they have decorated for Christmas you will feel like your seeing Christmas through a child's eyes.

Lights everywhere and the sounds and smells of Christmas are in the air! We are just going for the weekend and it's sure to be lots of fun and maybe I'll even find a gift or two while I'm there. They have the best Five and Dime Store with thousands of items.

On the way just outside of Springfield is Lambert's and we always stop there for a meal....they throw homemade rolls so you have to be ready to catch one and as Jenn said they have the best Pineapple Walnut Salad. Wish I had their recipe!

I hope to take lots of pictures and as always I'll miss my family while I'm gone. So today I made sure to give one special lil' boy lots of extra hugs and smooches.

Hope all of you find many wonderful things to do on your weekend!

Happy Trails.....Ginger

Oh what FUN Ginger! I'd love to be able to visit that Christmas show! They had a show on Food TV (or something like that) where they featured that restaurant with the roll throwing! Thought that was fun! ;-) Enjoy your weekend away, and return with a heart filled with Christmas spirit!

Sounds like great fun!! It's summer here for Christmas...but that doesn't stop the fun..I love Christmas!! My daughter #2 and her three little ones, help me decorate my 90 year old Dad's house with lights!! He loves the cars driving past and stopping to look. We must have at least 30 lots of strands etc all glowing and winking etc. I really should take a photo and post it on my blog this year. Have a great weekend...Rainbow smiles.. Gloria

Ginger,
Have a wonderful time and enjoy yourself.
We have a display like that here, but haven't been since the kids were little.

Have a safe and fun trip. It's beautiful with a little snow and ice. We don't get that often where I live so that part was a special treat for a southern girl.

That sounds like so much fun Ginger!
I've always wanted to go.
Have fun, and don't forget to take lots of pictures for us!

Hope you get to sing some Christmas carols as part of a crowd while you are there. It is time to begin listening for that happy music!
Travel safely. Jo
