Happy New Year!!!!

Can't believe another year has gone by....

Although 2007 had its ups and downs, I truly have been blessed with many friends and family who supported us so THANK YOU!!!

May 2008 bring bigger and better things for everyone!

I'm sitting here, listening to all the fireworks popping up in the dark sky while the snow is falling! LOL! The things people have to do to celebrate even in this snow! More power to them!

Called my family and the in-laws a couple of hours ago to wish them a happy new year as they are going into the afternoon hours of new year's day. DH is also over in Japan...he is assisting his home temple with new year's services/ceremonies which last about a week. I was able to catch him just as he was coming back to his mother's house after 7 hours of various events. With jet lag and not being used to things, he's on 3 hours of sleep. He'll be passed out soon! LOL!

I have been enjoying some quiet time with the boys...between them playing with some new computer games, etc. We went out and bought a bunch of books from Barnes & Noble today before the snow started to fall. Let's hope they'll be able to finish some of these books...school starts this Saturday (Japanese school) and then on Monday...busy, busy!

While they play with the computer games, mom is off to create some products for CHA (Craft & Hobby Assoc. trade show)....but kinda got side tracked with PRIMA's paintable papers!!!! LOVE them! Got only one done and I was able to break open a bottle of Radiant Rain (LuminArt) - a shimmering mist...I had this collecting dust for the longest time :0P

What do you think...

Don't laugh too hard...that's me in that get-up! That wig must've weighed at least 30 pounds! But it was worth it!

OK...off to bed and tomorrow is the Univ of IL v.s. USC game! Not sure who I'm rootin' for but it's been a long time for UofI to go back to the Rose Bowl :0)

Happy New Year!

Hi Margie! Thanks for visiting my blog. Your blog looks really cool. Happy New Year!


Theresa Tyree said...

OMGosh, Margie! Is that a wedding picture?? Are you secretly a Geisha girl?? LOL!! Please, please, I wanna see more pics of you in that get-up. I'm so fascinated with your culture. I like to believe that I have some Japanese blood flowing in my veins.

Enjoy the quiet time w/o DH around.
