It's the most wonderful time of the year

Good Morning! I hope that everyone had a great weekend. We went house hunting again and I think I found the perfect house. It has 2 stories plus a basement. 3 bedrooms, 2&1/2 baths, living/dining room/kitchen open area. Fireplace, Garage. Oh yeah... the kitchen has a dishwasher!!!! I hate washing dishes! IT"S SO BEAUTIFUL!!!! We are putting in an offer today... so cross your fingers and send out those good house buying vibes. It would be so wonderful to be able to get in before Christmas and have it in our new house. I just found out too that my brother and his girlfriend will be spending Christmas with us this year. I am so happy. He has gone back home to Newfoundland for the past 3 Christmases. It will be so great to have family here this year. The kids will be so excited to have their Uncle Eldon here with them.

Does anyone have their Christmas shopping done yet? I don't even know where to start! I have 2 gifts for the kids but that's it. We went a little overboard last year so I promised myself that this year things will be a little cheaper. And with the economy so uncertain right now, i'll have to be extra careful. But... the one thing that I want this year is a new laptop. I have a desktop computer right now which is OK, but I need something a little more portable. Hubby was looking at some yesterday and thinks he has it narrowed down to 3 different models. He wants to take me out this week to choose the one I want. He is even going to get all of my files and programs transferred from my old one to the new one! Yay!!!... I won't have to do anything! Now the only thing I have to decide is... do I want it in Pink or Silver. LOL.

All this talk of presents is making me wish it was Christmas morning already! LOL. It really is the most wonderful time of the year... see how I worked that in for todays wordart freebie. LOL. Enjoy.

Love the wordart Crystal and it is a wonderful time of year! Started our Christmas shopping and have done pretty well so far but as you said we all have to be a little more careful because of the economy so I am keeping that in the back of my head. Good Luck with laptop shopping, I just love mine!

Congrats on finding a house to you love... I wish you all the luck you need to obtain that dream.

Got some shopping done - and I need to finish early because I'm not quite so lucky to have my brother here this year, so I have to mail the family's gifts. I hope you enjoy your holiday - your excitement is contageous :-)

Thank you so much for the wonderful wordart.... Your gift is surely appreciated, Crystal.

Thanks so much for all the word art. I don't have a lot to celebrate - heck, yes I do, I'm alive and having a ball. On Dec. 4 Dell is having a nice sale on some laptops - I was looking at one and it comes in 7 different colors! I'm not sure if you need a coupon or not. I'll have to dig into the rubble...
