Yes, I am still here! Don't give up on me yet. After months of not having Internet in the house, we got it back a few months ago, only to lose our computer to a virus a few days before Christmas. Thankfully everything had been backed up, so nothing vital has been lost. Of course now we have to buy a new computer. I am okay with this, since I've wanted a new one for a long time now. It's just tough to be completely without one while we wait for the end of January when we'll be able to afford it. My hubby is wanting to get a Mac, vs PC which we've always had. Does anyone have any input on that? I have reservations.
In other news, all is well and we had a great Christmas. It was special in many ways, mainly that it was Abby's first. We were able to get Ashley a beautiful new Ibanez guitar that she has been wanting for months and trying to save for, and I was so thrilled to be able to surprise her with it on Christmas morning after all she has done for us since being at home for school. She is truly amazing and it felt so wonderful to be able to recognize and reward her giving nature. Santa brought Aspen a Fisher Price Smart Cycle, and she was thrilled with it. Santa also brought Abby a spiffy farm animal themed Exersaucer which she loves, and which has really made our daily routine smoother, allowing for some independent play for her.
We surprised Daddy with a video game he really wanted, and while I was delighted to surprise him I was less than thrilled to find that it is extremely violent and even involves a level that is outright terrorism. I won't be buying any more games. But that's a post for another time. I was surprised by hubby with a DVD of the new STAR TREK movie and I loved it!! I was really unsure if I would like it or not, but it was terrific! Again, a post for another time.
Anyway, I hope you all had wonderful holidays. We'll be back as soon as we can and I'll be posting here and there from here at our community center. Blessings to you all and Happy New Year!!
