Merry Christmas To All, And To All A Good Night!

Whew! What a Christmas that was! Despite the hectic-ness (is that a word?) of it all, we managed to have a WONDERFUL Christmas.

I don't have any pictures to post as of yet, as my stupid, stupid camera decided to finally up and die on Christmas morning. I've been having problems with it for the past few months with the battery - I would put a battery in and (at first) a week later, it would be dead... And then it would be a couple days until the battery would die. And then within the last week or so, it would be mere hours until the battery would die. UGH!! This morning I made sure to put fresh batteries in my camera, and I managed to take a whopping 10 pictures before it completely shut off on me and refused to work again. I put another set in and it wouldn't even turn on. So thankfully my father was taking pictures with his fancy camera, and my brother will be burning me a disc with those pictures. I'd be lost if I didn't have pictures of Christmas! There were SO many great photo opportunities throughout the day.

One of my favorite moments of today was when my mother and father gave Chris his early birthday present (he's turning 13 on New Years Eve). He got a lap top, a VERY nice lap top, which is what he's wanted for years. He was so touched by it all that he actually cried! This is a kid that usually shows ZERO emotions and is embarrassed by emotions (what almost teenage boy isn't? LOL). He had to go upstairs and compose himself, and kept saying "I can't believe this, this is too awesome" over and over again. He's now currently happily watching his new Grease movie on it!

I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas, filled with memories and special moments..... I spent weeks saying I wish that Christmas would hurry up and come so it would be done already, and now I wish I could get a little piece of that magic back!

Merry Christmas!
