It's about time...

I finally changed out that holiday background on this blog...

Now all I've got to do is get the Christmas train set put away (the little boy loved it and I just couldn't put it away while he was still here!) and I need to finish stripping the lights off the little trees that were in the middle of the train platform (I figured it would be easier to put a new set of lights on than replace all the burned out bulbs - although I could be wrong LOL)... oh and yes those are still a couple of holiday-ish wreaths hanging around... and no my holiday dishes have not been put away... LOL

They all left a week ago Sunday... the day after the Tsunami didn't devastate Hawaii.  Whew!

I miss them... the songs, playing, hugs and snuggles.  I miss watching them - kids are so much fun to just watch.  I'll be glad when they live back on the mainland and we can see them more often.

In the mean time I am soooo far behind on quilting stuff I need to get done it just isn't funny! 

I got a Wii for Christmas... we used it a bit while they were here but I'm back to using it daily... ouch - just a tad out of shape.

And it's actually starting to warm up a bit... which reminds me that I need to plan out what I want to put in my garden.

And I can hear the paint cans in the basement calling my name - they were totally ignored last summer after I fell over the gate... if you can't raise your hand you can't paint. 

I'll be back... really!

I'm so glad you got to spend all that time with them. When are they coming back here for good? Do they know ? That will be Great !

I still didn't get a wii but I'm walking , so that is at least something. OH And I'm painting too. Almost done with that.
Have fun catching up : )

I'm so glad to see your post here. I've missed seeing updates from you.

Don't feel bad about the Christmas stuff. My tree is still up. I enjoy it and see no reason to take it down. At least for now.

Glad you had such a good time with the kids.
