Merry Christmas from the Deans

It's Christmas and we have had little time to do do our usual Christmas Card and letter so in the interest of doing something we are posting it here on the blog and emailing it to family because many of them don't read the blog. It's been a wild ride this year. We worked more than usual: summer for the Kernels (baseball team) and fall for Amazon. We bought a new truck, hence the working thing. We spent the summer spending time with our kids and beautiful grandaughter. A splash of travel in there too and now off on new adventures with a cruise mixed in. All in all a good year and one that as usual has us counting our blessings. Included in that are all of you out there in blog-land, friends, family, and all who take the time to catch up with us once in awhile. Our lives are enriched by your presence in them. So to all we wish you a very Merry Christmas and the best of the New Year. We have a new favorite Christmas song this year and as a small gift we want to share it with …

Little girls will be getting everything Frozen, from toys, to clothes to jewelry and watches. For little boys, Legos, Legos, Legos. They have the blocks, watches and t-shirts. For the guys, lots of tools, particularly DeWalt ones, lots of electronics. Women have the biggest market and it’s hard to say for sure but the most common clothing we pulled was leggings, lots of different brands. Then there is jewelry. Necklaces with all kinds of sayings are really big. The one I picked the most is “Love you to the moon and back”. I also saw some of the ugliest jewelry I have ever seen, sorry for those gals. 
There are also the things everyone is getting: boys, girls, men, women. What are those? …
