A Quick Update!

While I planned to get lots of blog-reading and blogging done over the holidays, it clearly hasn't happened. Remember how I thought how my new Black Friday laptop would make me a speed-demon on blogland and I would be blog-hopping and posting like crazy? Well, not so much. The laptop is a bit different (duh) than a desktop, and it's taking me some time to get used to it and the keyboard, etc. So, basically, I'm slower than ever!!

Laptop stuff aside, we had a wonderful holiday. Made up luminaries on Christmas Eve to light in the evening. Our street has the most beautiful glow -- it's so special. We spent Christmas Eve and Christmas with Cboo and Maddy, visited my dear sweet parents on the 26th and had Christmas with Philip, Catherine and Janie on the 28th. We are spreading out the joy and it has been fun! Would post tons of photos, but I didn't get many and, oh yeah, haven't figured out how to get the photos from my camera to the laptop! (Another big duh, for me, eh!).

Miss Muffy, our Scottie, had a great Christmas too! She's enjoying staying home with us this week out of puppy daycare. At least, I think she's enjoying it! :) However, the yard is taking a beating. You know those little solar lights you might have in your yard? We had some --had being the operative word as she has pulled them out and chewed up whatever she can. Yes, I am buying her some more outdoor toys! She's also chewed up mulch, torn apart tennis balls and hunted down squirrels -- I'd say she's having fun!

We are looking forward to all the possibilities and promise of the new year!
Even though it's an odd-numbered year (not generally my faves),
I think 2011 will be fabulous!
Happy New Year!

Sounds like you had a wonderful Christmas with your beautiful family!!

You will get that laptop figured is a big adjustment to go from a workstation to a laptop, but it certainly is convenient!

Wishing you and yours the happiest of New Years! I hope 2011 brings lots of good things your way!

Also happy belated to sweet Maddy!! Hope her bday was extra special:)

It sounds like you had a great Christmas! We missed you at work!

Plug in your keyboard and you will like your laptop better! I can't type on one very well either!

Looking forward to ringing in the New Year with you tomorrow night (make believe, of course). What time should we meet for dinner?
