Jim's New Toy & Shopping Spree POTD

Give a man a power tool & he's happy! :) We got a couple more inches of snow last night, so Jim went to Home Depot this morning to buy a snow blower since we've been talking about getting one for a while now. Jim acted like a kid in a candy store, lol. He couldn't wait to put that thing together so he could go out & 'play' with it. Now I just hope that the novelty of it never wears off!

We also did some MAJOR shopping today. Since we skipped Black Friday, today was our day to splurge & splurge we did. Here's a picture of the results:
See that thing with the big white eyes sticking out? That's a JUMBO Tickle Me Elmo that we purchased for our granddaughter. I can't wait to see her open it! He's even bigger than her! LOL Most of the presents in the bags are for our granddaughter & we also bought a digi camera for our son & daughter-in-law (hoping they don't read my blog :).

Not shown in the picture is our new 9 foot pre-lit Christmas Tree because we have to wait until this week to pick it up as they were sold out, but they have another shipment coming in. Jim & I actually agreed on an artificial tree & he seems very happy with the one we picked out. We bought it at English Gardens. We've never been to this store before, but we will definitely be back. This store was wonderful & all of their staff was beyond helpful & friendly. I honestly can't say enough good things about this place! I bought those purple roses that are sticking out of the bag there, along with a new angel tree topper, some ornaments & a purple (yes, purple) Poinsettia. I think I'll take a picture of that tomorrow for my POTD :)

Until then, have a wonderful evening,

You've totally inspired me here--maybe MY DH would like a snowblower for Christmas. Not my idea of a 'gift', mind you (ranks right up there with getting me a cleaning lady for Christmas! So not!) but I think he might like it and be totally surprised!!
