Thank you AuntieMistletoeDear, the pictures are lovely, my favorite is the "tree with personality" and of course that handsome guy O'Malley....hmm, we may have to introduce my Julie to him!! I had to take my tree down twice this year because she was laying on the limbs and pulling my lights apart where they connect..the second time I used duct tape at the connections and thankfully that worked!! She was just determined to sleep in my tree this year!

HolidayHoney - Julie sounds like a most interesting cat. I hope you will tell us more about her adventures.

Will you be watching the new improved New-Years-Eve-Times-Square-Ball this year? Will you be watching New Years Day arrive around the world?

My husband and I are invited to a party. They used e-vites. One great thing about e-vites is - everyone signed in with what food and drink they would contribute to the party - by name. I think this kind of embarased people (me) into bringing better quality food! And more of it! Consequently - I think it will be a more delicious party!!!

We have lots of snow here in Chicago, 15 degrees, and lots of sun. A perfect day.

Well, we are off to pick up Grandma Eagle and head out to my sister's house for Christmas dinner.


My prayer is for everyone to have and enjoy all the joy and blessings of Christmas.


See you all later.
Iron
I haven't been here since Christmas morning, and am now catching up, but that was definitely the best Christmas present ever!!
What a great blessing to have your son home and a new dil!!!

Time to sign off the computer and get ready to leave for work.
I'm glad I got a few posts in befoe the end of the year and before the thread is locked and the new countdown begins.

(Maybe I'll get a chance to post again before the end of the day, but I don't know for sure.)

I got the Wii Fit for Christmas and my son and his wife have been here every night using it! LOL They are hooked and now need to buy one for themselves. They are so competitive, whatever score one gets, the other has to beat it! It's quite comical to watch.

Now, of course, they've raised the bar for the scores, and I don't think I'll ever come close!!! LOL
My 5yo granddaughter likes the run and she likes the hula hoop.
I also think the hula hoop is fun and so is the penguin tilt. I can't wait to see what new games I unlock next!

Morning everyone...hump day but most are off for new years anyway if not off today too. Can't believe the last day of 2008. I remember watching the boards back in Jan and seeing the 2008 count beginning and now we have hit the ending...sad isn't it? Yet I'm sooooooooooooo excited to see a new and fresh start to a countdown with the 2009 thread. Crown what time will you be starting it? I can't wait to see it.

Have a great new years eve everyone.

i am looking forward to our new countdown, i am more excited than ever!

really not looking forward to new year tonight, i should be excited but i'm just not! i am going to a fancy dress party with my partner, i don't know many people that are going which is always annoying.

next year, we have vowed to go away for new year to a cottage with a roaring fire and a village pub. peace, quiet and very christmassy! wish i was there now.
