Indeed it was a wonderful time for us this past week or so, having our kids home and much family and friends in and out to visit! A very good way to end the year. The last of them left last night. On Christmas day I think there were 16 people here to eat, open gifts and most spent the night. The next day some of Don’s family came over to see my kids and their babies, so we had maybe close to 20 that day. We cooked, watched movies, went for pizza, played and had fun with the little ones. By Friday lots of us were starting to get sick with colds and sore throats! I didn’t intend to take this long of a break from blogging but I can’t seem to get around to it when we have kids at home. I took lots of pictures and think I’ll share some in the next day or so but for now I’ll show you something I got for Christmas!

I’m having a bit of a time trying to learn this new one and the keyboard. I think I need to go to sis Stacy’s house for a day or 2 and get some pointers and help from them, the computer gurus!

Happy New Year! I’m trying to catch back up with you today and tomorrow!

    I love it..how nice. I’m so glad you all had a good time for the holidays..that is alot of people under one roof but how exciting too. Now you will have some down time. Hope you were not as sick as we have been. Missed talking to you. Are you ready for 2008? I enjoyed talking with you over 2007 and look forward to our time together in 08.

    I really like having a laptop and I know you will too. We can work through the other problems and things. I know that I have been doing that nearly nonstop since I got my Vista laptop earlier in the year. 🙂 You’ll like having it though, having one downstairs, one in the kitchen, one to take with you.

    Sorry you guys were starting to get sick, hope you feel better soon.

    Happy New Year!
