The big reveal

I woke up at 3:00. Laid in bed till 4:00 before turning on the lights. Read for a few minutes. Somtimes I can fall back asleep after reading. Turned off the lights and laid in bed till 5:00. Decided it was a good time to upload the party pics. Blogger says I've used up 84% of the allowable mg of pictures for my blog. I guess that says I've put up a lot of pictures over the years.

I can't believe Christmas is next week. I have a few gifts left to buy. I'll shop this morning and tomorrow morning. I hope that takes care of it. Knowing what to buy is the hard part, but lying in bed has helped me figure out gifts for the few people I buy for. At least I'm using these crazy mornings for something.

It's still the crack of dawn. I think I'll get up and do all my Christmas cards, get ready for work, drive the kids to school, shop, then work 8 hours.

So, here's some pictures. I uploaded the small size since there's so many. I took some and my sister took the rest. Some of the house, some of friends. You'll see Kathy and Karen and Bon. Emily and my sister. Friends and neighbors and co-workers.

Everything is ready and I'm taking a moment to relax.


























The happy couple!


So, there you go. The big reveal! Things are going great around here. Busy. Happy. Tired.

Happy Thursday!

OK, I confess, I scrolled past ALL the other other pictures until I found "The Happy Couple". OMG....how cute do you two look together? I am soooooo happy your party went well, and everything was beautiful and the food was sublime, but mostly that you are now half of a happy couple! That ROCKS!

Big big hugs....

He's a doll! But then, so are you - what a cute couple you make. Guys hate the word nice so don't tell him this - but you can see by his face that he's a really nice guy. I'm so happy for you.
