I'm just getting use to the year 2008 and now it will be 2009 in a couple of days? I can report a couple of things! I got most of my Christmas decorations down and am enjoying the semi-clean home. I've made a decision about next year. I want the gold tree that was shown on Live With Regis and Kelly! It's called Toasted Champagne Gold Tinsel Tree and yes I found it on the Internet! I was seriously tempted to get the red one.....

Pretty presumptuous since I don't know if I get another year! Anyway, I'm going gold. I don't know if I will even use ornaments or maybe all one color. How about red? I wonder if I will do it or not? I can never break away from the past. Part of me thinks "hey, why not"and the other part of me thinks "but what about all the memory's from the past"? I just don't know. I wish I could do something different just for me! Well, that is a year away!

I got some fun presents this year! I also gave some great ones as well! First, my loving husband, got me a Disney art watch. For those of you who don't know, Disney has watches like they have pins. They have original art watches, where you have the artist do something only for you. That is why Elliot is on my site. Gene had that one done for me a year or so ago. (right hand side need bottom of blog page-the dragon that says "I love you too") The one he got me this time was an open edition with this art.

I mean, who can resist Jack and Sally? I just love the vibrant colors!

Mary and John gave me a thing I am very excited about.... an AeroGarden! I love fresh spices and have tried to grow them. But it is just so hot here (from about April to October), then it is so cold (from about November to April). Inside my home might be ok except I have no sunlight coming in. It is one of those dark 70 style homes! So I have been wanting to try the AeroGarden. Thanks guys!

I can't wait to see if I can do it! The seeds seem very reasonable and so are the grow bulbs. Believe me, I'll keep you posted!

Geno and Kelly got me a nice little bling for my iPhone.

It's important to have a little Bling!!!!

And I think the favorite thing they did was this-

It was wrapped as beautiful as ever. Then inside was this little Olszewski pill box. This was really nice since the one I had broke a while ago. But when you look closer you see this-

Inside was satin rope with a note that read "open me". It was so Alice in Wonderland, don't you think?

So, I opened it! What was inside?

A sweet little Mickey charm! I loved the whole thing. Kelly has certainly gotten into the spirit of gift giving! Thanks Kelly!

Then there is this

The monkey peeler that CJ picked out all by herself! Who said that 2 year old's (going on 3) don't have a sense of humor? We always ask CJ if she is a monkey and she says "no, I'm CJ!".
How funny she choose that!

Even Momo was into the Christmas spirit!

Happy 2009 everyone! (or almost 2009!) God Bless you EVERYONE!
