Well, we survived Christmas and New Year's! Both were wonderful holidays and we truly enjoyed being with all of our family. The kids all were happy with their gifts and have spent many hours with them. My middle child and oldest son, Matthew, had his 16th birthday on New Year's Eve. It took him many years to figure out that all of the parties were not in his honor, LOL. We celebrated his birthday with family on New Year's Day. We had great fun and he LOVES his new iPod Touch. I don't think he's put it down since he got it. Now he's studying for his permit. That is a very scary thought for me! I think he'll be okay though. He's a smart boy.
We are getting ready to take down Christmas. We had an awesome tree this year. I really hate to see it come down. Unfortunately, we need the room. Things are very crowded!! It is more amazing each year how quickly the season flies by. I didn't have time to get half of the things done that I wanted to. I am beginning to think I won't be able to do it all until I retire - which is too many years from now, LOL!
We are also getting ready to take my daughter back to school. I think she's starting to get a little antsy and misses all of her college buddies. We love having her home though and will be counting the days until she comes back. Fortunately we have a week before she goes back to Niagara University.
I am hoping to get some sewing done. I didn't accomplish half as much as I had hoped in this area for Christmas either. I have to get my fanny in gear and get it going!!
