Out & about around Frankenmuth....

It's always fun to take Chuck places.  He's a great conversation starter! 
And when I don't have him out for photo ops. he folds up and fits nicely into the bag I was carrying as a purse for the day. 
If I remember my high school German correctly - this gnome's name means Happy.
So while I didn't take him into Bronner's with me I did take him around outside. 
This is a screen shot of the area map.  The top building is a hotel / water park.  The huge one with the brown roof is Bronner's.  The small round one right above the temperature is the Silent Night Chapel.  As you drive down Christmas Lane - it's all decorated in lights & figures.  It's lit up until midnight, so it's neat to drive around after the store closes and look at the lights. 
I didn't make this video of the lights in the parking lot, but Bronner's did!  
It's 5 years old so things have been changed up a little, but you get the jist of how it looks.

Bronner's for Creepmas?

So last Thursday I went with my Mom & 2 sisters for our annual trip to Frankenmuth / Bronner's for some Christmas shopping.  I was only planning on getting a "baby's first Christmas" ornament for the grandson, but you know how that goes..... I don't want to admit how much $ I spent!  

I thought you'd like to see that it's not ~only~ Christmas stuff in there! 
The corrugated tin ghosties came home with me.  
They have LED lights between each one. 
Some fall stuff, too. 
I love the s'mores ornaments!
These were all about beach-ball sized. 
I have one of these. 
...and one of these
All around the building, which is HUGE - they have stuff up around the ceilings.  
A nice big Dept 56 section. 
I'm sure I didn't see ALL of the Halloween-appropriate stuff they have, since it would take days to see everything there!
Since my grandson likes to growl, we call him a velociraptor - so I sent this pic to my daughter....should I get the realistic ornament or the cheesy marshmallow looking one?  
I brought home the cheesy one!
