A litle Christmas Inspiration and Laughter Go A Long Way!!

This has been an incredibly busy week, month, year!!  Today my daughter and I took some time to enjoy our first day with no kids home (besides sweet little Avery).  Monday my 4 year old granddaughter had to suddenly be hospitalized for an asthma attack, bless her heart.  Her momma and daddy spent the night and the day with her yesterday while she impatiently waited to be released!! <3 She was released yesterday evening, but it was definitely a dramatic start to our "back to school" routine. 

My oldest daughter and I decided to take a small trip to one of our neighboring towns to visit a wonderful place called Jordan's Plant Farm.

We try to make a visit out there at least once a year in the Fall.  Jordan's is a wonderful "Christmas Inspiration and Supplier of all things Christmas Décor related" shopping destination. 
They have too many rooms inside to count, each decorated in different Christmas themes.  She and I both particularly loved one and will be planning our Christmas Décor this year around it. 
Not the best picture ever, but it was a beautiful tree done in red, white , and green with lots of red stripes and polka dots.  This is the theme we will be working with this year!!

I want to make one of these little trains to go in front of our tree this year for the grandkids, with a little car for each of them behind it!!
Afterwards we drove on into Henderson, ate lunch  and then  toured around the downtown area which neither of us have seen in several years, and then headed back home.
We had the funniest conversation on the way home and I just have to share it.  We were approaching the road where you turn at that led to Jordan's again.    I jokingly said "let's go to Jordan's and look around!!"
Then Jess said "let's go and pretend like we haven't already been there today".
You have to understand, we were the ONLY people there yesterday, so we were just a little bit obvious.
She said "I'll change shirts, you can have my other shirt, and you can hold Avery and say she's yours and just look at them funny when they say something about us having already been there and deny it."
The more we talked about it and thought about how the ladies there would react, the more we laughed.  They have some really sweet ladies working there by the way :))
I'm pretty sure we could have had our own episode of Impractical Jokers yesterday had we only been brave enough to try. 
Laughter and Shopping is the best medicine there is!!
Have a great week my friends!!
