Thanksgiving Blessings Day 8

Happy Wednesday!

I know I have been MIA for a few days but I have decided to embark on a new project, a personal Christmas project for the grandparents and great-grandma of the boys. I know Christmas is still a ways away, but with the changes that are coming I am a bit worried about time.

I still have some wonderfully exciting news to share with y’all, it’s just taking a bit longer than I expected. And trust me; it is killing me holding this in. I can’t wait to share my joy with everyone and I am hope, hope, hoping to do it this weekend.

Some of the mommies asked if I would host a Lunch Bunch play date at the mall playground yesterday since it was Veteran’s Day, and their older kids were out of school. Let me tell you, everyone else in town must have had the same idea. I couldn’t believe how many kids were at the mall having fun.

Then the unimaginable happened. Of course we had all been promising our little ones some good yummy fried food if they behaved on the playground, well low and behold, we get upstairs and the food court had been sealed off by a wall. Yep, that’s right; they build a new wall around the entire food court. No doors, nothing.

I was just there on Sunday and the food court was open and serving all the high calorie yummy’s they serve everyday. Not today though. There was a little sign that said the food court would reopen on Nov. 13th in a new location. What, a mall with no food?!? And on a holiday?!? They had to be kidding. Why wasn’t there a sign as we walked into the mall so we would know NOT to make promises to our little ones we couldn’t keep?!? LOL!

I can tell you who must have been totally thrilled about this whole situation, Nordstrom. Yep, they have food. Food that’s not cheap by the way. So, for over $20 the boys and I had lunch.

Happy Scrapping!

I have to agree that it is stupid making a change like that just before a holiday!! Plus what do people often want when they visit!!
Sometimes I cannot workout why people do things!!

Thanks so much for this Thanksgiving kit - its really beautiful and all the hard work and creativity you've put into it are much appreciated! Sounds like your day at the mall was a lot of fun, but I'm surprised, too, at the food court being closed! Have a great day!

I think we must have been at the same mall LOL!!! I took my three grown daughters out for a 'girls day' and the food court was walled off and would reopen the week of Thanksgiving. Everyone is getting their 'holiday facelift' I guess.
Thanks for all you do. It is always appreciated. Love the kit!!

lol...too funny. Well at least Nordstrom's was there to bail you out (even if you had to fork it out to get it)!

Thanks for more of the kit!
