I hope everyone had a great Christmas and a fun New Years Eve.

We went to Son #1 on Christmas Eve and took our neighbours with us. There was so much food there that we could have eaten for a week, lol.

We had a great time. They have a Wii so we had lots of fun bowling and playing tennis and baseball. We received more hockey tickets and a digital picture frame. I'm hoping to get some time to play with the picture frame in the next few days.

Christmas Day had 8 of us sitting down for dinner. We had my mum and dad, BFF, son #1, DIL, and GD. We had lots of present opening first and then we all stuffed ourselves on turkey and all the trimmings.

Boxing Day meant we had to go shopping with the other million crazy people out there! We really didn't buy very much, but I always have to get my dated ornaments in the 50% of sales!!
We went to the hockey game last night. Calgary v. Vancouver. We don't usually go out on New years Eve but we received the tickets as one of our Xmas gifts so off we went. It was a little chilly -17, but it wasn't too bad. We enjoyed the game, especially as the Flames won, and they even had fireworks at the end for New years. We got home shortly after ten and because we had eaten supper so early we had a bunch of hot appetizers and cheese and crackers and wine and saw in the new year.

Today is just a lazy day doing not much of anything. My DH got an ipod for Christmas with several accessories so he is busy hooking up stuff connected with that. I've been putting away some of my Christmas dishes and taking a few more pictures of some of the new ornaments I got. I'll be taking the tree down in the next few days. We usually leave it up until after 12th night (don't ask me why, maybe 'cause I love the tree and hate taking it down!!) but I want it all down and things back to normal before I go back to work on the 7th.

Didn't make any new years resolutions, mainly because I'm not very good at keeping them. I want to figure out where I'm going with my crafting, knitting etc. Etsy was a bust for me, so I'm going to rethink that. We'll see what the new year brings.

I'm going to add a few pictures and then I'm off to make Japanese chicken for supper.
These little cupcakes are so cute, it's hard to believe that they are candles!!!
This is my BFF little hint (about # 100) to my DH that we should get another dog!!
A rather sparkly race car!!

I got these ornaments at Pier 1 yesterday. They are painted on the inside and come in beautiful satin boxes.

Bye for now.
