I loved reading all your comments..and am thankful for all my blog friends...Your stories make me laugh, make me think, make me cry and make me very HAPPY that I decided to blog!
I have spent the last two days packing up Christmas stuff in my shop. That's not a fun job, but one I need to get done early this year. I don't want to leave on vacation with my shop a mess.

Tonight is a night just with the boys....although I have had Parker the last two days and nights! (heaven) But Jack is on his way to spend the night so his Mom and Dad can have a night at the movies and the house will come alive.
We did see a good movie late yesterday afternoon...
It's Complicated! Some really funny scenes..I will leave it at that.
Tomorrow is SPA DAY for me...What a way to spend New Years Eve. This spa is the greatest and between a great hydrating facial and a 90 minute massage, you get a fantastic meal served on a gold tray, complete with silver and crystal...They do EVERY THING to make you feel special. Then a night of fun and fire works with the boys. Amanda is fighting a cold so I am going to help her get her tree down. That's what Moms are for.

I posted a final Random Dozen on my holiday blog!

OK for some NEW YEARS winners....we decided to use a combination of Parker and Jack's birthday's..

The winners are Sarah at The Strength of Faith and
Andi at Magallano Mournings ...VISIT THESE BLOGS AND SAY HELLO to two bloggers.
Please send me your name and addresses and a package will be on its way...Hope to mail out prizes tomorrow or Monday.

I am working on a list of some of my favorite blogs and will post them in a few days. The problem I am having is there are SO many blogs that I love. I think this will take several posts! BUT HEADING THAT LIST and THE REASON I BLOG is because for many months I read this blog, Just a Beachkat! This was a lady I loved, enjoyed every post and wanted to know her better. So if you don't know Kat, stop by and you will be hooked. I have not met a more genuine and fun lady in blogland.

Kat said...

Well sweet friend, you have made my night! I am truly touched.

Your spa day sounds wonderful...I'm so happy for you and a tiny bit jealous too. I haven't had a spa day in awhile, but I do have a manicure/pedicure scheduled tomorrow and I might try to work in a nap too before the parties begin.

Thanks for being such a good (and very thoughtful and giving) friend. I cherish our friendship.

Happy New Year to you and your family.

Hugs from the beach!


Teresa, I hope you have the best New Year. Thank You for being a part of my blog. I look forward to blogging another year with you. My grandbaby will be here soon:) Much Love and Blessings, Audrey

....and here I sit in the middle of the Ponderosa with the cows just dreamin' of a spa day! You enjoy that very well deserved day of being pampered the to max.

I'm off to take down all the Church decorations today, Whew....what a job but the sooner I get to it....well ya know.

I have so enjoyed the sisterhood of blogging the past ten months. Who knew what a fun supporting bunch I would find. I treasure you dear friend.

God bless and have a wonderful New Year!!!

Personalized Sketches and Sentiments said...

yes, wouldn't be awesome to leave the decorations up year round?...I can only imagine all what you have to pack up in your shop!

Enjoy your spa day today! Congrats to the winners :o) Oh! while I am still on vacation...I will have to take a peek at the blogs you mentioned. Yay! for free time!

...Wanted to also let you know that I have a blog hug (aka award) for you at my place. Even if you are an award free blog...just wanted to let you know I was thinking of ya!

Happy New Year or in Hawaiian:
Hau'oli Makahiki Hou! (sounds like "How..oh-lee...Mah-kah...hee-kee...Ho!" ...your Hawaiian pronunciation lesson for the day :o)

Blessings & Aloha!

Hello! A Spa day like that sounds awesome. I've never had one, all I've had done is a facial which was great to.

I hope 2010 brings joy, peace, and health to you and your family.
