The countdown begins

Well, Hubby and I plus our good friends Mom of DDG and Dumbledork are getting ready to go out and ring in the new year at the "local Las Vegas". (Not really Las Vegas) Hubby and I took some ballroom dance classes a couple years back and have been looking for opportunites to try out our skills ever since. We haven't come across too many yet so we are a little rusty. Hopefully with the help of YouTube and MonkeySee we can refresh our feet memory.
We are supposed to have some real fancy shmancy food too. Things I can't pronounce. This will be a first time to try caviar and something called profiteroles. Yeah, I'm that classy of a person.
Then we can dance the night away and play some of the slots in the casino. I hope we win! Last time me and Hubby went to Atlantic City, we won $30 in the quarter slots. Just enough money for a souvenier t-shirt! You know, it may be a little funny wearing my nice evening dress and small classy handbag weighed down with quarters. I'll be sportin' that gambler look!
Then I suppose when the party is over, we will have to come back to our house to do a little Guitar Hero dueling. It has been a while since we've played! Well, for me and Mom of DDG together that is. I played a bit when our relatives were over here after Christmas. Yeah, and I have succeeded in making another group of Guitar Hero converts by the way. You're welcome, C family!
Well, I had better look up some of those dance moves we need to work on. And I guess if we don't get it right, we will make it fun anyway with all of the pointing and laughing.
Hope you all have a great New Year's eve and day!!

Yep! We joined the rest of the game system world. I actually bought the Wii before the "cabbage patch craze-like fury" hit the stores. And yes, me and hubby had gotten it out a couple times to play with while the kids were in school. I was SO sore the next day after playing with this thing. I should be in great shape in 2009!! Oh yeah, the kids do like it too.

Puppy liked her present too. She was so excited! She was wagging and wiggling all over with the wrapping paper all around. She may have showed more enthusiasm with her gift than the kids! Silly pup!

So we all did well and had a great day!! Hope you all did too.

Missing something?


So how is everyone doing with their Christmas shopping? Missing anything from your wallets? Like, oh, I don't heehee
Ah yes, tis the season to forego the bills and spend, spend, spend for all of your loved ones. Then hope for mercy from the utility companies to waive the late fees because, "Hey, it's the holidays".
I think this year we are all trying our best to conserve with the whole recession thingy. Sometimes it doesn't help to find that the cost of things are higher anyway. So we end up spending just as much, but bringing home less from the stores. We have done pretty well so far for the kids' this year. I would tell you all what we got but then if certain little eyeballs see this post then I will be in a bit of trouble. Just a few more days and I can reveal. But I can tell you...those of you who DO know what it is already know this...we have tried it out first to give it a trial run and we have come to the conclusion that we approve. That's all I'm saying.
I suppose I'm not the only one running around trying to get all the things done that need to be done for this one day. Multiple trips to the grocery store, making sure to have enough to eat for everyone. This year I have decided to do something different. We are definitely sick of turkey from Thanksgiving and we will have our fill of ham. So I am going to be bold this year and make lasagne. Never have done that before. Why not?
Well, I hope you all get your shopping done and save a little too this year. I gotta go make out my grocery list. I'll be spending more tomorrow.

Decorating the tree

Thank you, thank you very much!

Yeah, I'm so interested.

Whew! That was alot of work.

Gotta have a nice fire going.

Our finished product. A little blurry because all the other lights were off. We had just the lights of the tree and the light of the fire. Mmmm...So cozy.

Now where's the presents?!
