Of Lights and Links...

The lights are off the house and tomorrow we tackle the inside of the house. After Christmas Eve and day...I get a bit Christmas'd out. Or it might have something to do with putting it all up so early! :-)

The kids and their loot...

We had a really nice Christmas! Fudge, Food and Family, not necessarily in that order. Everyone got exactly what they wanted...for me that was my All Edges Brownie Pan.

As long as I'm sharing links, here's a few more for you...

I have this new addiction lately, Online Scrabble! I'm not sure if I should thank Janie for introducing this to me, or do bodily harm to her! :-) It's just like regular board game Scrabble, just when you think you're winning the person you are playing with ends up stealing the game! :-)

A gal from my online reading group is currently living in Dakar, Senegal and is involved in a English Speaking Women's Group there that are doing wonderful things. She was recently talking about this little school she visited, and I made up a little page for her. If you are sick of your kids whining about things, have them read this, it might just put things in perspective for them...

I was telling a couple of people about this, it's a site that matches a candidate to your views.
I got exactly who I thought I you?

Brian and I have spent most of Christmas vacation at the movie theater it seems...
The Kite Runner
National Treasure
Walk Hard
Sweeney Todd

Have a wonderful New Years!

My babies!

Hello there!

Most of you remember the drawings of the boys that I had done. There's a picture of one to the left, Sue, the extremely gifted woman that did these just finished some little acrylics for the dogs. I wanted just the dog's face on a 5x7 canvas, and for her to paint a little whimsey frame around their heads, sent her some pictures and thats it.

I got them today, and they are the most adorable little paintings you have ever seen!

Just click on the pictures to see them bigger.

Here's the duo for the mantel-

Sue does the most incredible work, I cant recommend her enough. The link to her site "The Art of Surprise" is on the left there. I cant imagine money better spent than on one of these portraits, her talent is amazing.

I've gotten tears in my eyes when opening the package each time.

Merry Christmas everyone......and Sue, thanks for making my Christmas very special!

Who took November?

Where did the month go?

I made two sites and graphics for friends. One for Custom Kilts and another for these very cool Horse hair bracelets...yeah horse hair. Thats one of the prettiest sites Ive made.

Collins birthday was the 24th of November, Saturday. He wanted to share the cost of a Wii. We had been looking since August for one and couldnt find one. On a whim I looked in Seattle when I was there and found one! I should of bought the three they had, they are going for double on Ebay for Christmas.

Barry and the kids also came that Saturday. Spent the night. The boys watched football on Sun. and the girls and I went to lunch and shopping to pick out their gifts.

House is decorated inside and out, the cookies made and packages sent, and most of the shopping done. Im gonna take a week off! :-)

Got the best package in the mail today. Some from my reading group make and exchange ornaments. Nobody knows what people are making or sending, so its always a suprise. One very nice lass Sue organizes and sorts them all sends them out. I just made a youtube thingie today on all the ornaments that were made this year.

Another Sue *g*, I know is painting the dogs portraits for me. Shes the gal that did the incredible drawings of the boys, her link is on the left. I will post when they are finished.

Hope all is well where you are!
