What's Going On?

Hard to believe there are only 2 more days left in 2010!! Soon we will be ringing in 2011. Thanks to all of you that have linked up your holiday card. It was so much fun to look at all of them! The linky party will be active here until the 31st of December.

I also appreciate all of your nice comments about the break in of my SUV. The insurance company was good to us and even though we won't be able to recuperate everything that was stolen,  I am very thankful for our insurance.

We had a fantastic Christmas. Lots of love & great memories.

A tidbit of things that we have been up to over break:

spending time with friends
skyping with family (love, love Skype)
skiing & more skiing
hanging out at the ski lodge
getting over a cold (me & Ana)
snowmobiling around our yard on our vintage snowmobile
putting together a puzzle of Portofino, Italy
movie time as a family at home
using my point & shoot camera to get a few photos
cooking & cleaning
helping kids with electronic gifts

I am going to start back at yoga in the New Year to get in shape for this new sport of mine! This was a huge surprise from my sweet husband, a standup paddleboard (all the way from Cali!):

9'3 Isle Girl XPS Epoxy Stand  Up Paddle Surfboard Pink Fade
Yes, I am counting down the days until I can use this gorgeous board all around the lake!! I fell in love with the sport while in the Florida Keys on spring break. It is such an easy sport, just balance & paddle. 

Here is what I could use from you! I need to know if you have a camera (digital SLR: single lens reflex) that you love! If you have a camera or a lens that you love, please leave me a comment with the make & model. I am in research & save mode. I want to pick a camera that is right for me! 

Also, if you would say a pray for 2 of my friends. One is dealing with a very recent loss of a child, while the other friend is having difficulties with housing. These are wonderful, wonderful women who have helped so many people. Please pray for them. It will make a difference!

I am looking forward to blogging with you in the New Year. We are trying stuffed cabbage rolls on New Year's Day this year! I am so excited. Would love to know what you are doing on New Year's Day?!!
