What Fun

The Oklahoma son and family were here this past week.  What fun we had with them. Guess where we were on Thursday?




Yep, the Christmas Story house....it is right up in Cleveland, about 40 minutes from us.  It was really a lot of fun with the kids....and the big kids, us, also.


Grandpa and son having fun with the major award.  The actor that played Randy was at the house to answer questions and pose for pictures.


Remember the bib with the mashed potatoes scene?


Our "Randys" being afraid that the Old Man was gonna kill Ralphie!



They have a small museum of memorabilia from the movie.  So fun to see the actual outfits, toys and pictures from the making of the movie.




It was a fun day.....ending with dinner at the Great Lakes Brewing Company.  And here is my souvenir from the Christmas Story gift shop.....of course there was a gift shop!   And they are headed back to Oklahoma already....visit, too short!
