I can not believe it's 2008 already! How did that happen?

As many of you have already noticed, we did not get our traditional Christmas cards done this year. I've been so busy with crochet orders that I did not even get them designed. Mike says that we'll get them out in June, but maybe sooner. haha I really will get them sent out some time, just not for Christmas this year.

I'm trying to get well again. Tyke came down the a cold/cough and is still coughing. I had the cold/flu combo and am still coughing. It's been really awful. One of these days we're going to wake up and not start coughing.

Mike is going bird hunting in the morning. KC hates it when they get the equipment out. It really freaks her out. She's laying under my computer chair at the moment. She just knows I'll protect her from the big bad duck calls and guns.

The weather here has been ok. We've had sun the past couple of days, but not too warm.

Christmas was fun. We were all at Mom and Dad's again. Most everyone was there except one niece and her husband. They were at his family this year. They were here a couple of weeks ago to see everyone though. My substitute sister (my sister's best friend since school) was there with a friend. They brought us a bunch of Alaska King Crab legs! It was awesome! That's a treat we don't get very often here. It was sooooooooooo good!

We expect a quiet New Year's Eve.

I hope everyone out there reading this has a wonderful and safe New Year's!

My Nutty Son

KaHS had their Sadie Hawkins dance last week. I can remember when we just asked the boy to go and he said 'yes' or 'no'. Well, not anymore!

Andy's girlfriend had this elaborate way of asking him to go. The theme was Super Heroes for the dance. She decided they would go wearing Superman shirts. She wrote a question in the snow at the school across the street and then asked him to be her Superman at Super Sadie Hawkins. How cute was that?

Of course, he couldn't just say yes. He had to come up with something good to answer her with. So this is what he came up with, with some input from all of us.
They went and had a fun time!


I hope that everyone has a wonderful and safe Christmas and New Year's 2008!

It has been a month since my last post and I'm sorry about that. I've been so busy with sales orders this month. I think I over extended myself this year. I came down sick with the cold/flu illness this past week. I'm now coughing and trying to get enough energy to finish my Christmas and food shopping today. In fact, Mike and Andy just put the tree up yesterday for us. The lights are on and the ornaments still need to be put on it.

I got a nice phone call from my gf K yesterday. She was headed to her SIL's for Christmas. They are hoping to transfer back here next year some time. I really hope so. I miss them all so much!

We had a few snowflakes come down yesterday. It's still possible that we could have a white Christmas.
It's plenty cold enough anyway!
