Wow... what's up?? It's almost 11:00 and I'm the first poster?? Must be a holiday :lol:

Sounds like lots of you got nice presents and had wonderful Christmas celebrations!

Since I got the Expedition a couple of months ago, we didn't spend much on each other....just got something small from the boys to each I got some scrapbooking/cardmaking stuff from them and $$ from my Mom, a nice sweater from MIL. The boys had a ton of fun opening presents...well, mostly Will...Tony still just wanted to play with the bows. :lol: Next year will be even more fun. They got lots of toys and clothes from everyone. They have a nice Thomas train set up in their room now. Can not believe how expensive all that stuff was! When anyone asked I told them to pick up some trains or tracks. We bought the table top and dh built the table. I'll post pics sometime.

We just have a dusting of snow here :( . It's supposed to be in the 40's by the end of the week, so at least we'll get out to play. It's been awfully cold for that and Will is feeling a little bit housebound I think.

Well, better get off of here...Tony's got the vaccum and wants to plug it in! Hope they want to vac as much when they're older than they do now :lol: .

Tonight is a party with a group of friends that get together in the summer with kids and at Christmas without kids. We've known each other for over 20 years so it's always a good time. NY eve we're going over to my gf house with the kiddies and we'll grill out and over eat (again!) and celebrate til we konk out (most likely before midnight). It's back to work tomorrow. Dh is home this week so we're trying to get stuff done around the house I'll pop in when I can.

Take care ladies and have a wonderful day.

Good Morning ladies!

Sounds like everyone had a great Christmas. Glad to see you post this morning Geri! I have been somewhat MIA myself. Sooooo busy and have been lurking but no time to post.

I checked out the MLW site and it looks like you are all doing great on the challenge. Good Luck to all of you. I hope to get my camera fixed so I can join the next one.

Not much planned today except going to Curves in a few and then to bingo tonight so I can get some "ME" time while everyone is home. Having dh home with the kids is really getting to me.

Our Christmases aren't over yet. The middle boys still have to have Christmas with their dad and we will be going to my mom's on Friday to celebrate with my brother and his family and mom and her fiance. These kids have already made out incredibly well and still more to come....ughhhh!!!

Tomorrow night we have the company Christmas party to go to and it will be a buffet dinner with bar open afterward. I plan to be good on the food and no drinking, although that depends on dh and the kids....maybe I need a good stiff drink lately :dizzy: .

Hope everyone is having fun playing with the kids toys. I know I am.....LOL! Mine got the video game systems that plug into the tv and I have been kicking butt on Ms. PacMan.... :D :lol: .

I will try to get back here after bingo tonight if someone else doesn't have puter tied up. Think I will try to talk dh into a new outfit to wear tomorrow night to the party :devil: . Of course if I win tonight that will be no problem with him. I really need new clothes, all my stuff is getting so baggy on me that dh just looks at me and shakes his head everytime I have to hike up my pants.....LMAO!!!
