Vacation time!

Christmas was wonderful, of course. Baby Jesus made it safely into the world and that's always a good thing. There were lots of toys from Santa and his elves. That's bonus. Here's a picture of one of the presents Santa left for me and Nickel (but he thinks it's his). Nickel's brother worked for Dell and was able to get lots of stuff cheap!
We're having a lot of fun trying to figure it out. One thing we have determined. If we're going to be doing a lot of writing (like blogging) it makes more sense to just use our PCs. I also got a couple of new necklaces. One from my mommy and one from my Peanut, both dragonflies. You know what they say about great minds and all. Nickel got me some chocolate. He's a good man. Cheap, but good.

This week I've been trying to put my house in order, even though it doesn't look like it. Right now it looks like a crowded mess but I'm not making any plans for tomorrow or Friday so hopefully I'll be able to bring a sense of normalcy back to my house. One of the benefits of being a Church Chick is getting the week between Christmas and New Year's off, with pay, without using vacation time! I've had to go in twice this week, but I didn't mind because it was my choice. We got a new Xerox for the office and I wanted to be there when they delivered it and then I left, even though I knew it was basically unusable by the girl who needed it to print out stuff for the bulletin. I went in today to talk to Tech Support to get it on the server and usable for at least me and her, everyone else will have to wait until next Wednesday!

We haven't had as many problems with Peanut lately...well, until this week. She was very disappointed after having 4 Christmases to find that Santa only left one present for her under the tree. It didn't even matter that it was a Penguin. We explained to her the reason there were normally more presents was because all of the presents from us were in there too and that Santa has only left one present, unwrapped, every year. We knew that after doing Christmas with three grandmas in two days that she would be exhausted so we let her open all her presents from us on Saturday before the grandma(and Papa)-fest. Peanut got lots of penguin stuff including 3 of the penguins from Happy Feet, a Happy Feet calendar, and a knitted penguin. She got other cool stuff too, and would you believe the only clothing type items she got was a scarf, hat, and gloves? I was amazed. Of course we didn't buy her any clothes because she has plenty, but none of the grandmas did either and they ususally buy one outfit each. I'm not complaining, it was just intersting to me.

Well, I hope you're enjoying your last week of 2006. If you're not then you can soon put this year behind you and start over with a new year!

Well, until we pass this way again, may the Lord bless you and keep you that you may grow in His love and know His peace.

i have no idea what that computer thing even is?

Leslee said...

Badoozie, it's a called a tablet, or something like that. It's like a lap top without the keyboard, instead you have a little pen that acts as a mouse and when you need to write you click where you want to write and a little box comes up for you to write and the computer recoginized your writing and converts it into type. Sometimes it mistakess "l" for "1" (one) or an "/" but you can easily change it. After using it for about it week though it's starting to realize what I mean and will write an "l" instead of a one or /.

Like I said, Nickel thinks it's his so it's living in his room but I go get it whenever I want. The new modem I had to buy last September appearently works as wireless as well as wired so I'm pretty excited about using the internet on the couch!
