Getting ready for a New Year!

I hope everyone's holiday season gave you happy memories to last a lifetime.  Ours was beyond amazing, due of course to our newest family member.  My grandson, James, was born on December 16th and he is as cute as can be.  Both mother and son came through wonderfully.  Pictures will follow, when I get them on this computer.

One of the gifts of the season was a new computer!  My husband and I gave it to each other, but it lives near my chair so guess who uses it most?   It's an all-in-one with a touch screen and I love it.  My embroidery software looks so much nicer on the 20 -inch screen as opposed to the 11-inch screen I had been using!   But I haven't put any of my photos on here yet, so will have to add them at a future date.

I made many of the gifts we gave this year, on my embroidery machine.  Photos, again, will follow.

My mother gave me a waffle iron, my first ever!  Sunday morning we had waffles and bacon for breakfast and it was wonderful.  One neat thing about this waffle iron is that you can adjust the darkness.  VERY cool.  I had a sparkly new waffle iron, so I decided a new blender was in order since my old was was about 30 years old.  It still worked fine, so I donated that one to the Bibles for Missions Thrift Store near our house and bought THIS ONE:


The Ninjas get wonderful reviews and are very powerful.  Hopefully it will last for the next 30 years.

I was shopping with my brother, a confirmed Apple fan, and ended up buying my very first Apple product.  I got the iPod Touch (32GB, blue) and have spent the last few days setting it up.  Happy birthday to ME!  Now I'm on strict spending restriction.  LOL!  Anyway, this thing is so cool!  It's much lighter than my old Zune, and does a lot more.

Enough rambling, I'm off to watch a little TV.  My husband is off with family tonight and won't be home until tomorrow so instead of a New Year kiss I expect a New Year phone call.  If I'm still awake.  Otherwise a New Year voice mail.  =D

Have a safe New Year's Eve.  Drive carefully if you're out there tonight.

May we all be blessed in this new year with health, happiness, prosperity and PEACE.
