I remember sitting in my Grandparents spare room and playing with their Hess Trucks. It was special toy and while I had to play gentle, I loved sitting there for hours. It wasn’t that the trucks were delicate, because they are made out of hard  plastic,  it was because they are collectibles. This year, those Hess trucks have been out for 50 years. That is mind blowing.

This is a sponsored conversation from All thoughts are my own.
I can not believe it is almost time to get the Christmas decorations out. Where has the year gone. It is really flying by. We have a tradition in my house of no Christmas decorations come out until the day after Thanksgiving. And then we kind of go nuts.
