Farewell 2007.... Hello 2008

Christmas came and went in a flash. I never really got any decorations up, nor did I do any shopping. I was in great denial this year. The day of my last post I came down with a nasty cold. I tried to keep it together, but I missed some work and basically missed Christmas. I did manage to get the crayon bags done and made 3 little girls very happy. I don't know of a better feeling than to watch a little one open your gift and see them get so engrossed that they forget there are other gifts to open!

I needed wrapping for the crayon bags so I stopped by K-Mart on Christmas Eve.I think that is where my Christmas Spirit was hiding! All it took was for me to see some adorable Martha ornaments on 50% off and it was a light bulb moment! I'm so excited about next year! Sure hope by the time it rolls around I will remember I have these little goodies. Maybe I haven't decorated because I didn't have a fake tree and going out and getting a real tree was too much trouble and $$ just for me? All of my ornaments are for a big real tree. Well... now I'm looking for a 3 foot fake tree. That is all I need, I found one, got it home and it's not green... it's COPPER! ugh! looks like a dead tree. The search continues. Nothing can move me like the word "Clearance" ! My sweet son thought that I had been very good this year. He surprised me with a gift that left me speechless. His gift from me left him speechless as well. Can you guess which is which? Here's a clue... His comment was "hey it's PG 13!" (I told you I was in denial mode, I hang my head in shame)...Thank you Andrew, now I'm no longer in the dark ages of television!

The new TV is wonderful! I learned well from you, Mar, because I started crying when I saw the picture with your beautiful quilt hanging behind it! I've been to your house! I know exactly where it's located! I miss you!

The bags and pillowcase are great! You did good!

Happy New Year to you Mar! I am so glad that you started your Blog this year. The crayon bags turned out so well - it is nice to see people open their gifts and love them immediately. And that new TV - WOW - lucky you!

Best wishes for a healthy and happy 2008.

You do have a great son (and a great TV too!). I think your copper tree has great potential!
