What a busy holiday it's been! Hubby has been off of work since Christmas Eve day and there's been a LOT to do. Christmas Eve, we went to hubby's brother's house to celebrate and exchange gifts. Lots of fun! This is hubby's son Bill, his SO Nicole & one of our grandsons Caleb. He looks so cute with a tie!

On Christmas Day, I finally got to be with my boys!!!! It's been quite a few years since we didn't have to celebrate on a non-holiday day.... woohoo! We went to my younger son's place. They made an awesome roast, with all the fixin's. After dinner we sat down with my grandkids and opened presents. What fun! I love the look on kid's faces when they recieve gifts. On the left, my oldest son Art, his wife and daughters Tayli and Emma... CUTE but sleepy! On the right, my youngest son Bob, his SO and daughter Julie... she actually looked at the camera for once!

THEN, on the 26th, I finally got the "kitchen makeover" started... well, more finished anyway. I started this fall stripping the REALLY old wallpaper. It took me almost a month! I think they used super glue!!! The project was put on hold when I saw the price of paint... when did the cost of paint go up!? Well, thank you Mom & Dad for your VERY generous Christmas gift. I now have the walls sanded and primed and ready for color! Hubby goes back to work tomorrow so I HOPE I finish! I am sooo sick of looking at yucky walls.
New Year's Eve.... stayed home and watched the last Pirates of the Caribbean. Another Christmas gift... I now have all three of them. I was asleep by 11:30 pm. I refuse to go out on "amateur night" as the police call it around here. At least I got to watch New Year in New York on TV, haha. Anyway, HAPPY 2008 to everyone!
