Aloha Flashback Friendship Friday!

This is my oldest son Tony at attention..  He went to military school for a while.  Isn't he cute.  He is now a father of two beautiful children and owns his own Board up business called, "Strictly Board Up"!  I'm going to say this was 1982.
Question Of The Week
If you are in the United States:
How will you celebrate this Thanksgiving?
What are your favorite family Thanksgiving traditions?
Do you have any special recipes or crafts to share?

Dinner at my house and my children come for dinner.  First at the table is my daughter because she loves my stuffing.  Our family traditions has really gone to the curbside so to speak.  We use to all meet at my mom's house and her mom's before her.  Now most of my kids come, but now one lives in Missouri and another owns his own business so it's hard for him to get away. So I do have two more children that always comes.  No special recipes really.


"In Hawaii, Aloha Friday a day of rest. So we're doin' the same. On Fridays we're taking it easy on posting. Therefore, our hostess is asking a simple question for you to answer; nothing that requires a lengthy response.

It’s a great way to make new bloggy friends and find new followers! 

Question this week:  Have you started your Christmas shopping yet?

I started the day after last Christmas with all the great sales.  In fact, if you wait one week there are even better sales.  Then I shop all year long so it's not a great big bill all at once.  With four children (& spouses) & nine grandchildren on my side of the family & then there are four that we buy for on hubby's side, not to mention my brother and his wife, and naturally my sweet love of my life Aunt Mitzi!  Her birthday is Nov. 27th & she'll be 89 yrs young. We had a party early and I gave her the Nano necklace that says "I love you" in 120 different languages.  She's wearing it and she cried tears of joy.  She's such a honey!


Don't forget to check out my give-aways & reviews!  May I add and you can take it to the bank that any of my Give-Aways if you win and you do not get the product please let me know when you get and especially when you don't!!!  I personally will contact the company until you do get your just rewards for your time!
Also, check to see if you're following me if not and you do let me know I return every follow.  Any questions let me know.  Have a great weekend my friends.

Our holiday gatherings used to always be at my gram's, but when she passed it all fell apart. I miss it, even more now that I'm getting older.

My two oldest are out of state (one recently and one's been on his own/married for awhile) so things will sure be different for us this year. Thank goodness there's still some kids left. ;)

Happy holiday season to ya!
