The big day has come and gone and it was wonderful....we missed Molly and we were sad that she couldn't be here with us but we called her several times and talked to her. We plan to have a mini-Christmas when she's able to get down here.

Santa must not have been paying close attention to me last year because he missed all those naughty things I did....he spoiled me rotten with gifts and I truly don't think I was that good!

I have so many new "toys" that I'm not sure which one to play with first! Besides my new laptop HB also gave me a new camera. He talked with a couple of our "techie" relatives and they gave him some suggestions. I love the one they recommended. It's a Panasonic Lumix looks like this....

So far I've only taken a few photos but it's very easy to use and I love the fact that it's got auto settings or I can manually set them. I doubt I'll ever use the manual ones! I don't have the software installed on the computer yet but as soon as I do you can expect photos again!

I won't bore you with all my gifts. Just assume that I got way more than I deserved and I'm happy, happy, happy!!

HB also always buys us something as a gift we can both enjoy. This year it's a new Sony Blu-ray DVD player. And this, after I bought him some new movies on regular DVD! Oh, well, they will still play on it, they just won't be in blu-ray.

So we're all set now. I hope everyone else had a great Christmas too. HB left Friday morning for Michigan to visit his son and his family....three granddaughters ages 10, 13, and 16! He's going to have a blast!! HB needs some time off after all those long hours and more to come in the new year.

I hope you didn't eat too many cookies and other goodies over the holidays. I somehow managed to actually lose some weight! Now it's on to the New Year and more fun and art. Let's make 2009 a great year!

  4. Love the camera. I like my little one, because it is so easy to carry, but I don't like that it is only 3.1 megapixels! It is way old. Maybe . . . hmmmmm, We'll see! I'm glad you had such a fun and happy Christmas! Enjoy!!!!!

  5. How fun! I can't wait to see all your pics. Nice!!

  6. I was spoiled by Santa too. I got a new slim Fuji camera to carry in my purse. I also got a lovely gift set of my favorite perfume, a laptop, and a new pair of glasses.
    Its been a fun Christmas with my kids all here. I am so happy you have had such a wonderful one too.

  7. I have ate, but not alot. I am trying to think skinny and do something to make it happen...okay, everyone needs a dream! Spoiled! It was a wonderful Christmas and I am looking forward to learning more, doing more, and having some fun.
    Happy New Year Dear Friend....
