Today Nicole was getting the store faux tree set up with twinkly lights, while Amanda had sorting of items to be sold.
Emma came in for a visit for the day with baby AJ and her son Kohen.
Kohen was also assisting today setting up ornaments on the Christmas tree with Nicole.

Angus in the store in high spirits He always is finding hidden treasures.
Morgan today is working diligently with the Oxford Frozen Foods: Washing, drying and hanging of the worker plant attire.
Today I made up a new list for free Ice Cream, I chopped up some Laundry services slips, used the scraps for tags at Laundromat, and completed a Maintenance sign for a washer that only works with dollars.

I was working with Morgan at the Laundromat side at buttoning two buttons and collecting a number of them together for a load. Morgan would add all the necessities to the washers.
The washers would sing a little tune when they finished up there cycles and would be taken out to the dryer posthaste.
Morgan has become quite a pro at working with Oxford Frozen Foods cleaning. He works 5 days a week. He always brings his quirky humor to lighten the mood.
Patti and Paula managed various duties within the shop and upkeep along with Jacob.
