THE NEW YEAR IS JUST ABOUT HERE

WOW – the end of the year is just about here…truly – the year has flown by for me. I cannot believe it is going to be 2008…this just blows my mind for some reason!
Anyway – Christmas was absolutely BEAUTIFUL here. I think everyone was spoiled. Allen received cordless tools from Crystalyn and I which he has been dreaming about for quite some time. He also received all kinds of other little tidbits…and loved it all. Crystalyn was quite spoiled to say the least…a digital camera, a camcorder, several books of fantasy that you touch them and they have different textures and stories about certain subjects and hidden compartments…they are very cool….,beautiful jewelry, beautiful wand (which she has always wanted) (she is very much into fantasy things), and other assorted goodies that brought a huge smile on her face for hours and hours….(patting myself on the back for doing good this year)…and I was definitely spoiled…received a collector’s Gators helmet (love it), angel stuffies galore, and my daughter bought me a star….there is a star registry that she bought a star and named it Joshua Jaye…(I know it is all promotional and such because no one can own a star) but it is the ultimate in a gift..along with the star – she bought me this high tech telescope that hooks up to your computer and you can take pictures of the stars and upload them and print them out…WOW…finally watching and taking pictures of the stars – how so very AWESOME…I just cried…it is the best of the best. My girlfriend sent me a package loaded with fantastic goodies…I was just stunned….just amazing!!! It was all just so perfect!

So Christmas was beautiful….we ate and ate and ate – we had a huge Turkey dinner with all the trimmings just like Thanksgiving….it was WONDERFUL…we were so stuff, we could not move for hours…(that is the best kind of meal). Both our sons called so that was wonderful.

We have been just relaxing ever since…enjoying the stress free time together and vegging out. I have, of course, been watching every football game (including bowl games) that I can possible find. It really has been a fun football season.

I have continued to create at my art blog (FINDING MYSELF). I think I am officially hooked on creating Kaleidoscope images…it has been colorful, and has given me a lot of instant gratification which is always good.

Now our celebration is not over…I also celebrate “Three Kings Day”. I was brought up celebrating it…putting a box of hay and a bowl of water under your bed on the night of the fifth of January to feed the camels of the Three Wise Men on their Journey to see the Baby Jesus. So we continually send out any more cards to those that we may have forgotten or not had time – we keep sending out packages to family and friends that we were not around with during the holidays and such. After the 6th is when all the decorations come down and life moves on. We also have a special meal on the 6th…usually a pork roast and lots of stuffies to go with that. I just love Tradition.

I think I have pretty much caught up on news…If I do not get a chance to get an entry done before hand…I want to wish you all a very BLESSED and PROSPEROUS New Year.
My Wish For You For 2008:

May peace break into your house and may thieves come to steal your debts. May the pockets of your jeans become a magnet of $100 bills. May love stick to your face like Vaseline and may laughter assault your lips! May your clothes smell of success like smoking tires and may happiness slap you across the face and may your tears be that of joy. May the problems you had forget your home address! In simple words …………

May 2008 be the best year of your life!!! Until 2009, 2010, 2011..

Until Next Time …… PEACE!!!

  1. HI Ellie, sounds like you had a wonderful Christmas and a star with the name of your son, that is so awesome. I’m sure it means so much for you, it would mean a lot to any mom who lost her child so early.
    Well, preparing for the Eve tonight, some friends come over. I wish you and your family a Happy New Year and a great start! I guess see you next year 😉 Take care! Greetings, Anke 😉
