A Christmas Photo...




My daughter loves getting ready for Santa, from the baking of the cookies to the trying to stay up all night waiting for him to come... We DID track him via NORAD this year, which was tons of fun watching where he was in the world at specific times.

This year, she was pretty lucky and kept her wish list reasonable so she was able to get quite a few things from it. (except the live kitten and pony of course!) I can remember asking for a pony too, way back when. A gift we are all looking forward to using this coming summer is the metal detector she wanted. Who doesn't want to find buried treasure? I can seriously see us hitting the beach and parks with it this year, hoping to find something more valuable than then pop tops from cans and rusty old nails. But I am sure we'll find our share of those too!

Hubby and I didn't buy for each other this year. We decided it'd be best to give to the kids and instead we opted for a nice Christmas Eve dinner at our favorite Mexican restaurant. We had what they call a Parillada for 2, which is basically fajitas for 2 with ground spicy sausage, chicken, beef and pork, along with the grilled veggies. Plus we each got a nice side of rice, refried beans and a small salad with guacamole and sour cream sides too. I have a feeling we are going back on New Years Eve, and this time I am asking for the frozen strawberry margarita too! They make them good and strong :)

Just wanted to say hey, Happy New Year's to you all! Work will be nuts this week, and I will be looking forward to having New Year's Day off. But dreading going back on Friday for just one day! So Happy New Year's everyone, celebrate and have fun-but stay out of trouble!

Happy New Years to you too! Me and my hubby did the same - spent all our money on the kids :) You're only young once and its more important for them to remember good Christmases :)

Maybe we can get together this summer and do some metal detecting. I have a few spots that are great to check out in the spring just when the ground thaws enough to dig. Maybe we will find a geocash at the same time. Looks like Deja had a great Christmas!
