Hoping for a wonderful New Year!

I got this in an email and thought it would be great for a hello to the New Year!

I hope that everyone had a wonderful and stress free Christmas. I know that i have been reading wonderful things on those blogs that i read daily!

As always my family had a wonderful holiday. Everyone has got what they asked for. My son is in love with his new flat screen t.v., my daughter is enjoying her portable dvd player. She is enjoying her spending money. She went with me to get our hair done. New haircuts and highlights, we feel all refreshed.

Today i purchased my very own digital camera! Now i have a brand new toy! Hopefully soon i will be taking my own pictures and posting them to my blog. Mom has promised to help if i need it. It's a Nikon L11 and seems to be pretty easy to use, which is exactly what i was looking for.

I'm not completely computer illiterate but i am no scholar at it either. This is a pic of my new camera.

This is a family portrait that my mother took with her camera on Christmas Day. I think it turned out nice. Although i can see the tired in my face.

New Years Day is my last day with Blockbuster's. I have mixed feelings about leaving. I have worked for them 6 years and it was a wonderful job compared to the 16 years working at McDonald's. But i feel the need to move on to hopefully better things without killing myself with working too much.
I forgot to mention how i tricked the kids this year. Everything that they had specifically asked for i hid in my room, so everything underneath the tree was things that they could care less about. When they were done opening them i asked "did you get everything that you asked for?" they obviously said "NO!" I laughed and said "Ya'll must have been some bad kids!" lol
I had a great laugh at their expense hehe...then i got up said i had to use the bathroom and came out with the other gifts... The look on their faces was priceless!!!
Well i gotta run.
Everyone have a Wonderful New Year!!! See you next year :)

LMAO! What a great trick! Bet that went over even better than a sock full of coal! Lucky kids, and a humorous Mom! I love that. Too bad you didn's get a picture of that!

That was sneaky! heh heh. Good on ya, mum :)
Enjoy experimenting with your new camera too. They're lots and lots of fun. You can take lots and lots, and simply keep the best ones and delete the rest! yay!
Happy New Year

You are going to love having a camera of your own. I do, but I haven't used it often enough.
I guess I have to feel a bit 'artsy' to do it right.
Sometimes I think--I'd love to get that picture, with the light so perfect, well, I'm tired, I guess.

I never play tricks like hiding gifts on anybody. Often the end of one, though.
My sons say I trust too much.

Maybe that's why I love watching MASH and all the jokes Hawkeye and BJ did to Frank and/or Charles.
