This was how we set the table for Christmas. I had no matching dishes and that called for some shopping. Thomas thought my everyday dishes were fine and my thought was no. They are cute dishes with blue and pink yet not what I wanted for Christmas and I also only had 7 since I broke one on our anniversary (oops). I had been wanting white dishes for the last few years. We were out shopping one day at a second hand store and I came across a stack of 12 white plates at 99 cents a plate. Now I have beautiful white plates with the white raised fruit trim. My Mom also made me some napkins from some material I had picked. Then the next issue was glasses. I again didn't have enough for everyone. I found some glasses and the gold chargers at Walmart. Anybody want to come over for dinner?

I just thought I'd give a quick update. My computer is DEAD and Tom's work computer.......I don't really know what is wrong with that thing. Today I got a new computer. It has been 10 years since I've had a new one. The last five years we've gotten free OLD computers from Tom's work. Tom is hunting for all the software and then I will be up and running again. Hoooraaay!!!!!! I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas. I had a great time hosting my first Christmas at my house. I got to buy dishes and make napkins. I'll share more when I can post a picture.

Merry Christmas family and friends. Lack of time, homeschool, Christmas prep, my mother being here and computer issues = lack of posting. Tom has the next 2 weeks off and will be trying to fix the computer. For now I'm going to use his but that means no pic posting. We have had a very busy month and this week will continue to be busy. Monday: Birthday Party with Jesus, Tuesday: Nutcracker Ballet, Wednesday: babysit, cook, wrap and Christmas Eve Service, Thursday: Merry Christmas. I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas.

Tonight we went to Tom's work party at the Preston Country Club Grand Ballroom here in Cary. This was our first year going and we had a great time. My mom is here and was watching the girls. I got to get a new dess just for the party. Now we are back home to a sick child. We are still up after midnight listening to Frank Sinatra by the Christmas Tree. Here is to a long night.....cheers!
