The COOLEST blanket ever!!!!!!!!!

This is the best Christmas gift we got from our kids this year. They spent like 2 hours in Haley's room one night and would not let us in. Haley had her Dad take her to the fabric store(She did not tell him what it was for) and get the material and then they tied it and Parker had the idea to stitch their names and Merry Christmas and the year in it. I totally love it! It's so cool! I love the colors too. I was wondering why Haley asked what my favorite colors were. I said blue, red and green. It made me feel good that they put so much time into this and it's so personable. I love our kids, they are AWESOME!!!!!!!!!


Okay, I waited till today to put a new post on my blog because I realized that in 2008 it says I did 49 posts. That's my favorite number I say all the time and so I just had to keep it that way. I know thats silly, but who cares right? Well, I took down my Christmas things today and now my front room is so clean and looks bigger. I'm glad this new year is here and I can have a fresh start. I have not really thought of any goals, but one and that is loose some weight and stop eating so much chocolate! I have eaten too much lately. I have not eaten any yet, so I'm off to a good start. Yeah! Oh wait, I did have a piece of a brownie at 12:30 last night. Oops! Well, Happy New Year everyone!

That is a GREAT Christmas present. It's always nice when some thought goes into it. I need your email address... We are thinking of changing home loans, doesn't your husband do something like that? I can't remember...

When your kids do things like that it makes you feel so great. What a wonderful gift. more than the blanket I'm sure it's that they THOUGHT of something creative and SPENT the TIME to do it just for you two. THey are great kids. (with great parents!)
