Happy New Year!

Christmas is over......... it was a great success for all in my life as well as myself. I feel so blessed to have so many great friends who take an interest in my and my girls lives. It makes me feel so warm and fuzzy for all who make my life worthwhile!

The loot report: SS got her magnetix building set from Santa that she was wanting. KK also received her request, but got not 1 - but 3 yo-yo's from Santa. They even came with a little video about different yo-yo throws and such! WOW! They also got digital cameras with a nifty little photo printers, new shirts, and they each got a new board game! The winner for the toys for Mom - definitely the Rubik's cube in the stockings. It took me most of the day, but it finally all returned from my 80's youth and I can do it in under 5 minutes. Nothing like my personal best of 1 minute 10 seconds, but maybe I'll get there again! BWAHAHAHAAHAHA

I scored big! My friend, who I call "Gem" her in blogland took the girls shopping on Tuesday. They did well! They got me makeup brushes (what I hinted I wanted) along with my favorite perfume. I was really impressed that KK knew what the perfume was called! Mrs. S. get the award for the gift that made me cry (in a good way). She gave me a lovely framed picture of my mom along with a poem. It is such a nice picture of my mom - just how I remember her before she got really sick. Apparently Mrs. S. had enlisted the help of KK and scanned a pic that was on KK's time line of her life (a school project). She also got the item I was coveting the most - The Open Station. It is allllllll kinds of cool. :) Gem was gonna get me that also, but ended up with a nifty inside/outide thermometer/weather station do-hicky. I've always thought the one her house was pretty nifty.

Both Gem and Mrs. S. got their families Wii for Christmas this year. We spent awhile at each of their houses's yesterday partaking of the hilarity. Two things I learned: 1. I'm a bad driver in the virtual world too, and 2. I think I know what my girls will be getting for their birthdays!

But now........ Christmas is past. The tree will come down tomorrow and we can all start planning our New Years Resolutions for 2009!

Wishing everyone the best for the coming year. :)

I'm so glad the christmas report is jolly. I would type more but I have too many sore, achy Wii muscles to lift my arms this high !

Happy New Year, Hick Chick! I can't believe you can do a Rubik's cube so fast--I can only get one side all one color. :(

Dillon is hooked on Rubik's cube at this time. I don't even try!
Glad your Christmas was a happy one Susie!
