Let's Celebrate

My neighbor had an extra ticket to Disney on Ice.  I went with her and her two daughters.  I hadn't been to an ice show since my son was a toddler. 

She had free tickets.  We were very surprised we had really good seats.  Unfortunately, all the pictures I took came out blurry. 

The theme was "Let's Celebrate."  All the Disney characters were there.  Mostly all the princesses, I never saw the movies though, ha!!  All after my son's time of watching Disney movies, although we probably wouldn't have gone to see those movies anyhow.

The kids in the audience really got into it especially when the witch from Sleeping Beauty was trying to get Mickey Mouse to take a bite of the apple.  They were all yelling "no" when he asked them if he should take a bite, ha!!

It was cute to see a lot of little girls dressed up in princess garb.  I've noticed on some blogs I read kids are really into wearing costumes now when they go places.  Thank goodness, those days for me are over. lol

Random thoughts

1.  We bought a new TV for Christmas. Our old one finally bit the dust.  Hippie went and picked it out.  We were supposed to get the size we had which was big but he bought an even bigger one (men, huh). It's a smart TV.  We had to have hippie's brother come and set it up so we could watch it, ha!  Your supposed to be able to do the internet on it but we haven't set that part up yet, if we ever do.

2.  The treadmill room is beginning to be a catch all room.  We put the old TV in there until it can be taken to the tree lawn.  We took mom's old TV stand out of that room. There was a bunch of her old stuff in there which is now piled up on a couple of dining room chairs that I keep in there, among other stuff that I don't have a place for.  Ay yi yi! This room could get out of hand.

3.  My son and his girlfriend bought me a lighted bake shop for Christmas.  I guess I'm finally going to be starting a village.

4.  My brother and his wife got hippie and me some gift cards, also a fruit basket.  I always wanted a fruit basket but why does it make me feel old.

5.  Magellan and her boyfriend came over this past Saturday.  We ordered pizza.  I made a salad.  Hippie bought a French Silk Pie, yummy.  Her and I drank a bottle of Riesling.  By 10:30, they left.  She practically fell asleep on the couch while her boyfriend laid on the other couch.  Ha, ha. At least we know they felt comfortable in our home, eh?

Out with the old, in with the new

2013 was a pretty good year for our immediate family.   No drama and everyone was in good health even Mom.  

Other family members and friends did not fair as well.  I hope for a better year for them.

With the new year, they moved mom to a new room.  They are making her old room private.  She also left the wing that she's been on for four years.  It will be different for her and I'm hoping she will adjust well.  I think she will do better than me, ha!  The good thing about this room it is much larger than her other room. 

I didn't make any resolutions, goals or intentions for 2014.   If I don't make them I won't have to worry about breaking them, lol.
