Merry merry. Happy happy.

Well hey there. How rude of me to write a post about feeling much darkness, then checking out for a few weeks. I’m fine, we’re all fine. I appreciate the concern. I hope everyone has been enjoying the holiday season.

I have been super busy, even though I’ve been off work since December 12th and I don’t return until January 5th. Sweet.

So, since I last updated...
We’ve had a birthday (8 – gulp)...

.... and a birthday party (Pop Star Karaoke theme):

We’ve had a lot of snow:

Christmas was in there somewhere:

And, just the normal goings-on at Casa Simpson:




Coming up this week... shopping for appliances. Fun, right? My oven died this week (I had to take those ducky cookies to my mom's to bake) and my washing machine has been in bad shape for awhile. I could just call a repair shop, but they’re both more than 12 years old, so I think we’re better off with new (SHINY) models. Of course a shiny range requires a matching shiny fridge, so if we can swing it, that will be in the shopping cart too.
Happy New Year to all my bloggy friends! See you in 2009!

I was a bit worried about you, but figured it was the holidays that had you tied up, not some surgical mishap.

Those duck cookies are the most ridiculously adorable thing I've seen since my child was born.

I am so jealous that you get shiny new appliances! I'm secretly hoping that my range dies so that I can get one with a convection oven. Oh that would be sweet!

Oh, I really like the color of your walls.

Yes, I realize that is random. :) Happy Tuesday!

Those cookies were awesome... I brought some home for the kids too!

I bought shiny new appliances three years ago (all four of them) and I wish I never bought the ceramic top stove... what a mess!!
