And jumping the gun. And yes I know it's still the Halloween season (hence la' pumpkin in the pic). But I was roaming Wal-Mart late one night and came across her in the Christmas isle. I'm going to call her Teri the Topiary. I shouldn't have bought her, she wasn't in our budget ($35.00 sad I know) but somehow Teri made her way into my cart and seeing as she needed/pleaded to come home with me. I obliged her every wish and home she came. I am going to use her year round. I figure once the Christmas holiday is over I'll unplug her glowiness from the wall, whip out my ivy garland and wrap it around the Christmas stuff and Wha' La...... All season decor! . I've decided Teri's a multi-purpose topiary. Anyway run to your local Wal-Mart and grab a Teri of your own. I know you'll love her. Hmmm if only I could get one more..... :) Okay I'm going to go put her back in her box sniff.... but dang it, as soon as Thanksgiving is over (or maybe a day or two sooner) She's making her grand debut! I'm so excited to decorate for Christmas. I think I love it even more than Halloween.
On a more serious note, we had Grandpa Hug's funeral yesterday and it all went well. Grandma Hug seems to be doing pretty good and there was a lot of family support. Thanks for all the thoughts sent our family's way, we really appreciate it.
Oh and see that Hill behind the flowers? That is where Grandpa Hug was born it's called Pumpkin Ridge. I think it's neat that he is buried so close to where it all began.
