Hello my shopper friend Chris!! I\'m so glad you love shopping now!! It\'s so much fun, lots of cool things to look and and buy, good times. :)
I love that halloween town is starting to shape up! How long we got to go? 6 weeks or something? So this time last year I was over in New England, and I remember the trees were starting to change colour. It was so beautiful. I\'d love to see that again some day. I\'m still hoping to get to the USA again next year - I may have to be studying a subject at Uni in first semester, so I need to check if i can take the time off in March / April for my holiday. Work have said it\'s ok, now I have to see if study will allow it. I want to try to arrange my visit so that I\'m at the Mohegan Sun on a weekday - the prices to stay there nearly double for a weekend! But, it looks amazing. The food court area might be a bit... I dunno, daunting perhaps, lots of people around. There are some nice restaurants though which could be a bit quieter, but I\'d love to take you and your mum for a nice meal there - some great lobster deals to be had, I noticed! Do you all like lobster?
Sending love and prayers to grandma - I hope she fully recovers very soon.
Love to you all. xxoo

How lovely you went shopping and what a lovely things you bought. I have never seen pumpkin dollies before, I think it is an awesome idea what you want to do with them. Creating cards, that is so nice Chris and I am sure you going to have so much fun with this. Your napkins you bought are so pretty as well, love all the different colour leafs. So nice you got a snack as well pretzels and some nice Arizona tea. Love all your pictures, you sure have had fun decorating your halloween town. Hugs
