Another Christmas wrapped up!

Christmas came and went in a flash. It was a nice, quiet day! That was perfect! Now I am on my forced vacation for the week (our company decided to close for the week) and wish I was back at work. (Yes, I did just say that!)

Does everyone have their resolutions in place for tomorrow night?
Are your noise makers ready to sound off at midnight?
I can't believe another year has come already! Time flies, doesn't it?

My word for 2009 -- Adventure!

One of the special people in my life turned me on to this blog last year around this time of the yar -- Christine Kante. The post in particular that she wanted me to read was this one -- Resolution Revolution. What she wrote made sense to me. You can make a lot of resolutions, but if you put everything to a common theme to fall back on then you have a better chance of succeeding.

The word that I am choosing for 2009 is adventure. I have resolutions, of course. I have a complex set of resolutions, quite honestly. I have resolutions that are being done to bring about a very positive and long lasting change to my life, but I think that the key that unlocks all the resolutions will be that word of mine. Adventure. The adventure it will take to bring them all about. I hope you all check out that link and find your own word for the year as well and succeed in making that word work for you.

(And much thanks to mah bebe, Jo, for the link to start with.)

Tonight was the yearly trip to the Temple in Mesa to see the lights. Of course, going with my dad means that you walk briskly through the Temple grounds and be done in 30-45 minutes tops. It was a bit chilly out tonight, but it was a beautiful one. (And very crowded!)

The camels, Liz, are just for you!! :)

The grouchiest elf you ever saw...



Sometimes it just has to happen...Tyson has to suffer for me to have a good laugh.

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas!


Tyson has become quite the pro at using the dog door. He still slinks around outside, Jeremy calls him a lowrider.

Christmas is coming up so quick!! 15 days away! I still need to get Jeremy's present bought! And I need to wrap! And I need to decorate my room (will do that this weekend). I need to put the cards in the mail (they are, at least, stamped). I need to bake! I need to see "A Christmas Story" still. (You'll shoot your eye out!!)

Are you all ready?

Gingerbread.


Well that was not an experiment I think I will be repeating anytime soon...
A crooked little shack that got hit by an avalanche.

In the meadow we can build a snowman...


Wants.
Now.
Thanks.

How cute is he? And he is as tall as me! Love me some snowmen!

Let the holiday craziness begin!!




A new snowman to add to the multitudes of snowmen that I already own! Whoot!
And I am going to attempt to make a gingerbread house (and a wreath) this weekend. Okay, seriously, it may end up looking like a hillbilly shack that got obliterated by an avalanche...I never claimed I was that crafty!

My wreath will have penguins on it. Minae would be muttering about "those damn penguins" if she could see it. Pictures of all this to follow...hopefully...
