Cool! I was just at Millcreek Mall in Erie a couple of days ago :-) Funny how when you're traveling you think of all your blogging friends, knowing they are within the state boundaries you travel through and wondering just exactly where they are!

Happy Holidays & Merry Christmas to you and your wonderful boys!
