Happy Holidays!

Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukah, Happy Kwanza, and whatever else you are celebrating.  Well, the presents are wrapped, the stocking stuffers are hidden away waiting for Santa to put them in the stocking and let us hope that Santa can remember where they are all hidden.  Christmas dinner is bought and soon will be prepared. Now I just hope we don’t all die tomorrow.  I personally think that the experts are misinterpreting the Mayan Calendar and we are about to enter a new beginning. 

So are your halls decked and presents under your tree?

I'm down here in the swamps and today they are high.  We are having some bad weather today.

Did you get anything good?  I loved that I was with my family this year.  I missed them a lot last year.

Nothing wrong with old toys.  This year was the year of new toys for all of us.  DH and Mom got new iPad 2s and DS got a wii U and parts to build his dream computer. (this is the boy with ADhD and never finishes anything but dinner.)  I got a Kindle Fire HD!  I also got the most awesome pair of slippers.  They are so comfortable.  I'm going to have to take a picture of them and post it. 

All-in-all everyone here had a great Christmas.  Now back to penny pinching.  I get paid tomorrow!!!!

I spent my afternoon downloading free apps to my new Kindle.  I finally ran out of battery power and had to plug it in.  My son gave me the most beautiful bracelet.  It is gold and has little colored glass stones, each one a different color.  He gave his grandmother this interesting fossil necklace.  DS has really good taste in jewlery. 

Enjoy that time with dh while the kids play.

Merry Christmas and/or Happy Holidays to all of you!  We opened gifts last night between my getting home from work and dh leaving for work.  He's off tonight though, so we'll be together once I get home from work...plus they joined us for dinner at work.  They all have new toys to play with, so who needs family time anyway, right?  ROFL.  I received a nice mother's ring with all of our birthstones on it, so I am a happy girl whose old toys work just fine while the bling sparkles on my finger Wink

Merry Christmas to you too. Had oldest dd & Miss Lu over for dinner & gift exchange. It didn't go very well. Dd complained & bitched a about everything.
