Live from New Jersey

Here I am at the kitchen table at Steve's house in NJ.  It's weird to be here but I'm adjusting.  I sent a big spray of flowers from the boys to the funeral home and a small dish garden from me.  Wayne wanted me to put his name on it too but I thought that would be weird.  He wants Steve to know that he really is sorry about his loss.  He's been there too, when his brother passed, but I just didn't think it was a good idea.  We did give Steve a condolences card that had all of our names on it. 

Andy and Joey were running around like maniacs.  We went out to breakfast and to Costco.  We went to get stuff to eat while we are here and ended up getting a bunch of stuff for the kids for Christmas too. 

We got them this train table-- for all 4 kids:

We got Fisher Price Kid Tough digital cameras for Lexi and Andy


I need to put this stuff in my database and see where we are with Christmas gifts for the kids. 

So our weekend is not going to go as we'd planned.  We'd planned to go the Haunted House at Eastern State Penitentiary in Philly tomorrow but unless I can get my mom to watch the kids, that won't happen.  I guess we're just going to hang around here. 

I called Rosie to see if she wanted to hang out tonight.  I think Wayne and I are going to sack out on the couch and watch a movie or two.

I agree about that being weird having Wayne's name on the card too. Good decision. Although it sucks it has to be that way because it's obvious Wayne means well & it's sweet he cares too.

Great gifts for the kids! I've been hearing a lot about those kids cameras. I think I might get one for my pseudo niece (my 2nd cousin in the icon pic with me). For the first year EVER I'm like wanting to spend on someone. But only her! (I'm usually a huge cheapskate at Christmas because we just don't have it to spend) I just think though about how excited she would be opening it and it gives me happy goosebumps! :)

So did you get to go to the haunted crazy house? :)

I had no idea what this was until I watched the Travel Channel the other night. That is really interesting. I was fascinated by the history of Eastern State Penitentiary.
