I've been trying to blog for the last 4 days now...
We've been experiencing technical difficulties with our 3 computers. You would think that with 3 in the house one would work...but NOOOOOO!!!
So, I wrote this long post on Christmas eve and it was my version of the Twas the Night before Christmas. And then...crash...and so I wrote it again (very close to the first one, I was going on memory) and then...CRASH AGAIN!!!
I switched computers, but then the internet would not connect. After an hour and a half of trying to post, I finally called it quits.
Now, it's way past Christmas and everything has resumed its functions.
My poem is lost, but trust me when I say it was a gooder...
Our Christmas was absolutely relaxing and so much fun. I hosted both families on separate days and must admit that I love hosting because I get to stay at home! Christmas day we had Rob's side of the family over and indulged in more food than was necessary for any person to consume. Then we played our own version of Charades...what a blast1
On Boxing Day, my side of the family came over for another feast (my sister made Prime Rib and it was delish!) and AGAIN indulged in more food than was necessary for any person to consume. We tore into the gifts and with 6 children under the age of 10 it was pretty crazy!
All in all it was a great Christmas. Now, I sit at the "functioning" computer while my DH is playing Battlefield 2 at the other computer next to me. This is my idea of a "max relax" night. The kids are nestled are snug in their beds...Reese is definitely dreaming of sugar plums, but Robert is probably at the wheel of a Nascar racing car (because there is now a 6 foot posted on his wall of Dale Earnhardt Jr's car -care of Papa and Nana).
Every year there are gifts that touch the heart more than others...this year Papa and Nana win the prize.
I will leave you with pics of the Christmas cards that I gave the family. I made them with last year's LoveElsie's Christmas collection...and tons of Stickles!!
Enjoy your holidays with family...I know I am making the most of these precious moments.
I am hoping to get some scrapping time soon, stay tuned for some of my LOs.
