Tressie's Christmas Train

I have had my eye on this Christmas train for Tressie for several weeks now. She loves the little people toys and anything with music. Saturday we were at Kohl's and they just happened to be having a great sale! So, Grandma bought the train. We didn't dare show it to her in the store. We quickly hid it in the cart.

This morning, her Mama brought her down and before she even hit the floor, her eyes lit up and a she was grinning from ear to ear. She had spotted the train sitting on her toy box!

The train plays music (Jingle Bells) and also makes train noises and Santa sounds. She quickly learned to hit the button three times to by-bass the Santa sounds and the train sounds. She wants the music!

When she hears music of any kind her little body can not be still! She even dances to commercials!

Happy Birthday Little Sister!

Today is my "little" sister's birthday! She is a whole 13 months younger than me! But, today she is officially? over the hill! It's her 50th birthday!

This is such a silly picture, but I love it! Don't know if we had just gotten up, or was getting ready to go to bed, but look at those jammies! I am betting that Mom made them for us. Matching of course. We weren't twins, but Mom dressed us alike, alot! What's with the goofy smiles? Did they have us say "cheese" or some such thing that made us BOTH have the same look on our face? Look close...our hair is even "styled" the same! Did we mind? I don't ever remember complaining about it. But of course, we were little then!

What I do remember, is that we were the best of friends! Still are! We don't get to see each other as often as we would like, but we talk on the phone and e-mail each other. Do we Facebook? No...She is signed up but says she doesn't know how to use it, and me.... well I'm not even signed up!

The family is all getting together this week-end to celebrate ALOT of fall birthdays! It will be a fun time!

Happy Birthday, Sheryl, and best wishes for at least 50 more!
