Holidays Are Over...

So the holidays are over. I hope Christmas was wonderful for everyone, or whichever holiday you choose to celebrate. We had a good one. Just the two of us. We actually cooked on Christmas Day! That in itself is a Christmas miracle. hahaha We had a Christmas party the Friday before Christmas, and it was so fun. Friends and neighbors, and even my brother made it here (we don't have any family here). We ate, drank, laughed, and karaoke'd like fools. I got strep throat again so my week off was pretty much spent lying around. The following weekend we went to visit my hub's family. That was nice. It's good to see everybody together. We are still waiting to have a celebration with my family, since they couldn't make it down the scheduled weekend due to a nor'easter snowstorm. Grrrrr.... I was so sad. But they will try and make it here this month. New Year's Eve day we went to the casino and did pretty good, but we stayed in that evening since I still wasn't feeling well. I made my list of Resolutions, and they aren't anything that I can't attain. I've been good so far, but it's only been a week! This is the first year I've made resolutions. One of them is to scrap a page a week. Doesn't seem too daunting, right? I neglect my scrapbooking, and usually only do it when I go to a crop (maybe like twice a year!), so I'd really like to stick to this. I did my first page of '08 this week and it felt great!

This card I made for my brother's girlfriend for her birthday. She loves hippos and I think this little guy turned out pretty cute. She called to tell me she loved the card. Yay! I'm so glad I can bring a smile to someone's face with just some paper, glue, and glitter. hahaha
Happy New Year!
