Night night baby
The tree on Christmas morning.  Told you they were spoiled!
Sweaters from Grandma
Christmas was good after all.  I went to find the presents left by family
 and was a little surprised at the size of the pile.  So the kiddos had 
plenty of presents to open.
C got my new computer up and running and I am so happy.  We have 
POWER! Bwahahahaha.  Actually it is nice to have enough memory to put
 on lots of pictures, run all of our programs etc...  What a sweet guy.
Of course, between the kids presents and the computer packaging we do 
have a bit of a mess.  Task for this weekend is to clear the living room and
 the path to the laundry room (the place where all the extra boxes got stacked.)

Christmas is coming, the goose is getting fat...

Yay, we now have a new and improved computer. The old one put forth great service. It lived for 7 years and through countless moves. It was dying a slow and painful death. C harvested it for parts and bought all new stuff for my Christmas present. It is so cool! He is going towards setting it up as a media center. Anyway, it runs without groaning which is quite nice.
I think I am all ready for Christmas. It still doesn't seem right to be celebrating Christmas without a big trip back home. Even after 3 years of staying here, I can't quite get used to it. I suppose I should enjoy that part about the big trip and all the packing that goes with that. So, one more full day till Christmas. The presents are all (almost) wrapped, the goose is thawing in the fridge, and I have three great guys to spend the holiday with!
I am looking forward to posting more pictures once all that stuff is installed. I guess I have no more excuses for not keeping this at least sort of current.

a second post? Really?

Now that life is crazy, I have decided to try the blog thing again. I keep thinking it will be a great way to keep in touch with everyone, sorta, and put pictures so I don't have to be emailing them out all the time. Which I never do anyway. I am probably just trying to avoid the actual work of packing and the housework that needs to be done before we go.
Nevermind, blogger won't let me put any pictures on. I will have to figure that out later. Grrr.

Tomorrow is Village Home registration. I think I have talked M into 1 day of classes. It is such a pain to drive up there more than 1 day a week. Especially since G and I just have to sit around the whole time.
After that we go right to the Echo (no food for 6 hours--should be interesting) and then a 2.5hr break and then to the cardiologist. Hopefully, all will be well

Our first post

The kids went to their Aunt's house for the morning. I made cinnamon rolls for my lunch. Umm healthy.
It snowed overnight. We had fun playing in the wet sloppy slush. Glad we didn't have to drive far in it.
M made his first snow angels today. So did G.
