For this post anyway. It's too many pictures and details to go over! I've only scrapbooked 1 Christmas for the exact same reasons. I'm getting ready to go to 'ScrapCamp' in a couple of weeks and my goal is to catch up on all of my Christmas layouts.
Aside from the holidays, we've been busy around the pseudo farm. Just before Christmas I sold my guinea hens. There were originally 12, but 1 got dead, and one got missing. So I sold 10 to a man from Elk Grove. Those poor neighbors. 2 weeks ago I sold my goats to the contractor who has been doing some work on our house. I was sad to see them go, but the difference in the amount of work has already been a relief.
Otis hurt his leg over Thanksgiving, pulled a muscle. He continued to re-injure his leg to the point that it was non-operable. So, two weeks ago we had his leg amputated..... I know! Add it to the laundry list of major expense this dog has been. Greg says we're not getting anymore pure breds! LOL! Now we have the zippiest 3 legged whippet around. He seems to feel much better and gets around fine with the exception of going up our wooden stairs. But honestly, I've seen those stairs slow down a human being.
We've also got a trip planned to Disneyland. We'd been talking about going for quite some time and I'd been asking my friends when was a good time to go (ie: not as busy). We booked the trip and I began thinking of a way to surprise the kids to tell them. Should I make a pizza like on a commercial I saw... would I make a banner? Well, Greg took that additional stress away by just walking in the front door and telling them! Phews.
Well, I've got a wild, currently unsupervised 3 year old heading upstairs, so I'd better sign off for now. Thanks for coming back to my poor, dusty blog.....
