Saying "hi" on Christmas

This year we broke from tradition and opened presents on Christmas Eve- mostly because this year I was hosting the lunch/dinner and secondly I was hoping to sleep in a little this morning... As luck would have it - I was able to sleep into about 7 am - the girls were anxious to see what was in their stockings and to play on their new laptops that they had opened the night before - they were happy to find another present under the Christmas tree and now at 6:30 pm they are playing their new wii - tennis to be exact. The bummer of the day was that one of the laptops decided to not work - I will be at Best Buy in the am with the other millions of crazies... My heart just about broke for my kid this morning when the on button would not turn her computer on... I will leave it to the geek squad to figure it out.

I have a lot to be thankful this holiday - my sister is here and is recovering very nicely from brain surgery and she looks great - my kids are healthy and happy - my husband is working and healthy - and I am doing very well.... I am extra thankful that the husband decided to clean the kitchen without my assistance - I think that in itself is a great Christmas present....


So I will close this Christmas "hello" by saying I pray that all of you had a very joyous and Merry Christmas with your family and loved ones...

For unto us a child was born - thank you, Jesus - Happy Birthday

  1. Did you try a different power outlet? Try taking the battery off and putting it back on again...that could reset it.

  5. thank you all - thanks Stephanie for the good advise - we did try a couple of power sources and places - took it back to Best Buy and it was the mother board - the good news is that they did not have the computer in stock and gave us a really good upgrade for an exchange - would cost more to fix than it was worth...lol. My kid is thrilled that hers looks nicer than mine and her sister's... lol

  7. I'm all for breaking some traditions and keeping others. It depends on the tradition I suppose. The kitchen "clean up" get's my vote for Gift of the year. :)

  10. So many blessings! I am so glad your sister is doing well! Oh, and ya gotta love a hubby who cleans!!!!

    We always opened presents on Christmas Eve when I was little. But after my hubby and I got married I wanted to switch to Christmas Day. He was fine as that was their tradition so no problem. However, we do see my side of the family on Christmas Eve so the kids always got a little something!
