Shirley has figured out how to get on my blog. I walked in yesterday and I got fussed at for putting too much personal information on here and for wearing "that shirt" to see White Christmas. I don't think she noticed Martha's finger in the picture.

Nothing else interesting going on here. I'm just glad it's Friday. I'm enjoying the political

Lydia, Kimberly, and Lauren came over for a slumber party Friday night. We got to visit Scout and Aari, eat stew, and make chocolate chip cookies. I just wish I'd remembered to take a picture. Lydia had claimed for weeks that she hadn't seen "Singin' in the Rain," so we watched it. She kept having flashbacks during the movie, so maybe her subconscious had repressed it. Who knows.

It turns out that our house is very good for playing tag and hide and seek. It also turns out that Frank is a tattletale. Whenever you hide, he goes and sits right outside of your hiding place.

In other news, I woke up this morning with a headache. I'm also nauseous. Maybe I'll let myself off work a little early this afternoon...

no snow

Mrs. Jenny - this picture's for you. I saw this over a hotel doorway when we were in Chicago and it made me think of you...I just kept forgetting to let you see it.

In other news, there's no snow. I'm thankful for the rain. Really....I am. It's just that when you had your heart set on snow, rain is a bit disappointing. There is nothing better than sleeping in, watching a movie in front of the fire, and making a pot of soup for supper. I still slept in this morning - at least, I slept in until Oozey and Frank started throwing themselves into my door and meowing.

Maybe we'll get some sooner or later...

girls' night

Thanks to Katie, Martha, Meredith, and Rachael for coming to play with us last night. I had fun watching y'all scrapbook. Really. I did. The burned popcorn smell is finally out of the theater room. I also tried what we talked about last night. And for the record...I didn't enjoy it at all. I woke up every hour or so. Oh well. Now I can say I've tried it once. At least the house didn't catch fire.

Newsies was great. It's funny how no matter how many times you watch it, it never gets old. Here's something fun I found this morning. Let me know which one you are:

Which Newsie are you?

that settles it

I thought I'd finally get a definitive answer on who I look like. According to Mama's family, I look like her. According to Daddy's family, I look like him. After much computing, I guess the answer is that I just look like myself.

Wow. It's been 15 days since I updated this thing. I'm a little embarrassed. We just had a busy Christmas. Yeah...that's it...

Mama's whole family came Christmas Day. Well...everyone except my aunt Kay and her family. Kay got a new kidney for Christmas. What an awesome gift! We're going to go see her sometime soon. I promised to bring her her very own pan of dressing. Mmmm...dressing...

Rachael and Jimmy came over for supper on Christmas. Jimmy wanted to meet Aunt Martha. John made Rachael her own pocket-sized family tree so she could figure out who she was talking to.

I came down with Hannah's cold on Christmas Eve. I felt like crap for 3 days. I hope none of my family got it. I felt better by Saturday, so Hannah and I took in a double feature. National Treasure was great. I am Legend was not. If someone tells you that they've cured cancer, DON'T TAKE THE VACCINE. It will turn you into a zombie and your dog will die.

Hannah, Lydia, Martha, and I went out for a Christmas last hurrah on Sunday night. We saw White Christmas...and it was great. Don't tell my mama that I wore that shirt. It was a lot different than the movie...but still very good. That might be the closest we get to snow this year.

Our group went to Carrabba's for New Year's Eve. I went home before midnight. I'm old and I was tired. We spent yesterday taking the Christmas decorations down and rearranging the furniture. Our final broken ornament tally was 32. It was nice to get up this morning and not have to sweep up broken glass!

So in conclusion...HAPPY NEW YEAR! I made a few resolutions...but if I post them'll know if I don't keep them...
