two days late, sorry.
i've had dan and the kiddos home all week and they haven't really been too keen on me being on my computer for hours at a time, so i apologize for the lack of posts!
here are the two things i'm lovin around my home right now
they just happen to be two gifts i received this Christmas...
my dad and step-mom got me this beautiful antique train case which i totally LOVE
it's in great condition and has that wonderfully "old" smell that i love so
my mom and step-dad got me a sewing machine - i'm oh so excited!!!
thanks parents for the gifts that i LOVE so much - you four are the BEST!
as you know, today is new years eve. can you believe it's the last day of 2009? i can't. time just flew by this past year.... crazy.
here is dan and i last new years eve
we usually celebrate pretty low key... last year we spent the day at the beach surfing and then came home and watched a movie.
today we are heading over to my brother and sister in law's house in rancho santa fe (san diego) with all the kids. we didn't get to see the Undies (my bro and his fam... last name is Underwood) for Christmas so we'll be exchanging gifts, eating wonderful appetizers (my sis in law, kiana, is one of the best cooks), drinking some russian vodka (my brother, nate, travels a lot and has quite the collection of vodka that he has brought home from russia) and some wine, putting the kids down around 8:30 pm and ringing in the new year laughing and having a great time with people i love tremendously! can't wait.
tomorrow we're heading to the tule lake area to spend time with dans mom and step-dad at his step-dad's parents house. it snowed there yesterday and is suppose to snow all weekend so the kids are looking forward to playing in the snow, sledding and making some jumps for ty to do on his snowboard. should be a great weekend and a fun start to the new year!
happy new years my friends!!
this year has been pretty good to me and i can't wait for a fresh year... and decade.
love to you ALL!
ps. what will you be doing tonight? any grand (or not so grand) plans?
