We had a busy and exciting Christmas. All I wanted was to be with my family. I saw alot of people asking what we wanted and my wish came true.

The secret I teased you about was that Eric got to come a day early and stay a day late. Only we didn't tell Rick...we surprised him.

I love Christmas but I have to say that I am glad it is over except for the part where Eric goes back home.  I miss him already.

I think we did pretty good in the giving and recieving departments.

I wish I had taken some pictures of the presents we gave away.  I made 4 tote bags this year, I made 5 framed portraits.  And bought the rest.  I will not even allow myself to wonder how much I spent. LOL  I really don't care.  Family is special to me.

What did I get you ask?

I got....from Eric...a relaxing cd and bath stuff

from Rick.... my ring!!!! and oven!!!!

I have been only wearing my ring sometimes because it is a little big and I don't want to lose it.

With my oven I have already made two batches of biscuits, cookies, cornbread and peach cobbler.... I also got some sweet rolls in the oven to cook...I will probably gain weight LOL o no!

from my parents I got alot of great things...soft socks, a picture of them, a nail kit,

money, my Dad painted me a picture of Villa Grove where I use to visit my Papa.  It is of the whole town.....look I will take pictures of all the stuff I got tomorrow...there is alot more .

We had so much fun with Eric here.  Eric and I spent today cooking up all kinds of cool things. I have pictures of that too....to be continued....

It is 2:17am and I have to go to work tomorrow.  I must get some beauty sleep! 

I am in 10th place in the singing contest now, so if you haven't voted yet please do.  I am only 1 point behind the person in 9th place.

Have you voted Little Bear????  I didn't get my usual Hell no from you saying you wouldn't ...feeling ignored here young man!

He loves me LOL Barbara

I voted...what I'd like to know is "who's voting for those other people?"  NOT ME !!
Have a good day at work...I'm off here now to go get ready for my day at work.  And it's snowing about 10 miles from me...YIKES !!  I hate winter.   Linda in Washington state

The family gathering photos looked great and what a large amount of people to share it with.    Your Mom and Dad look wonderful and the new baby girl.    I can not vote since the code that is already in the box gives me a message that it is not the right code.      Have a good New Year with more good times with Eric and the family.      mark

The family pictures are wonderful and OH MY GOSH...that ham looks delicious!  I saw those clown pictures...are they paint by number?  I have a love for PBN pictures that other people made.
