What a beautiful Day!

Can you believe it almost got to 80 degrees today?! Dad and I went to 2 malls here. One we went to a couple of weeks ago and the North Shore. Both in my opinion has something for everyone. Dad got me a pair of white pants. We also had french fries at the MCDs there. We had a good time.

We also had a nice Easter. We managed a walk down to the Salem Common as a family. We had a nice time watching the kids on their bikes, throw some baskets at the basketball hoop.

Now the weather is going back down to the 50s for the rest of the week. :(

Take Care

Christmas Day 2009

Today Dad woke me from a sound sleep to tell me the kids were up and asking all of us to come down stairs to open presents. I got some nice ones. A long roll pillow, a basket and (Drum roll please.) a Macbook OS 10.6. I skipped several operating systems. Matt set it up for the internet for me. Thanks again Matt. :) I haven't been away since. I have all my stuff. At first I thought I lost my addressbook items. I found them. I then colored the folder so I can find them again. I still have the same email addresses, etc.

Because most of the family is sick with colds. I didn't have Christmas Dinner with the family. Dad brought me down a plate. Note a nice rice dish orange squash and asparaghas.

Thank you to those who sent gifts

Christmas Eve 2009

Tonight we Cornell-Cooke family got together for Christmas Eve Pizza Party. Eggnog and other drinks were served. We chatted about family stuff. It was really nice to be all other the mediate family minus Kevin :(. Who was spending it in the city.

Another Day in MA in Dec

I got up and had my breakfast. Dad washed my hair. Then he got me dressed. We were going to the RMV in MA in other places it is called the DMV. Next paragraph I put on my facebook page.

Today I went with Dad to the RMV to get my disable sticker/id. We got there and the lady at the desk was fine. Now here is where it turned bad. We had just gotten in the car and some rmv police officer come up to Dad's driverseat car window and motions for him to lower it. He then asks Dad for the info we had just gone in and put in a request for. Talk about ruffling some feathers.

After we came home Dad took the kids out. When he came home we had steak stroganoff.

Santa Claus arrives in Salem, Mass 2009

Tonight Santa Claus arrived in style atop the back of the Hawthorne Hotel. There was also a caroling/sing along. Songs were pretty much the norm. Here Comes Santa Claus, Santa Claus is Coming to town, etc.

Not a bad crowd gathered on the Salem Commmon which is facing the back of the Hawthorne Hotel. Santa came down via the fire engine's latter truck. The weather was calm but a little cool. Dad and I dressed warm. Me in two pairs of pants and my orange sweatshirt and jacket, hat and gloves. Dad dressed like ships Captain.

Fun was had by all. Later there was to be a tree lighting ceremony, but Dad and I decided it was too cold to go.

We came home and had tea and BA's cookies.

Thanksgiving 2009

This year was probably one of the best Thanksgivings in a long time. It was spent in Salem with family at BA's parent's "weekend condo", across the street from where we live. Nothing like just going a few yards to have a good meal. We had the works plus Dad made shrimp scampi. I am stuffed. Though at about 8pm I have to admit I had a bowl of cheese doodles. Fun was had by all. I am so Thankful for such a wonderful family.

Oh what a day!

Planned on just hunkering down. Dad called the doctor's office about the N1H1. She told him to bring me in about 1:30. Got dressed after lunch. And down we went. Sure enough 1:28 we were called into a room and she gave me the shot. Now I am covered. Both seasonal and N1H1! Planning on having roastbeef sandwiches from sandwich shop. :) That is the the plan, but we will see. :)
