Happy 2009!

Happy New Year to everyone! I hope you had a great time doing what you loved. The Birrell clan all went over to Alex and Tracy's and Hillory and Jeremy and their family came over, too. All 8 of the kids played downstairs in the basement and they all played so well together, it was kinda scary! Alex and Tracy taught us all how to play a card game called NERTS (think Solitaire x 3 all going on at the same time everyone playing off everyone else's cards) and it was so fun! We played that most of the time. We also played Trivial Pursuit 80's Edition and CatchPhrase. We watched the ball drop and then pretty much packed up and headed home. We got home around 1:30 and then we stayed up until about 3am playing on the DS's!

Today we got up, played around on the Wii and then me and Steve, Alex, Hillory and Jeremy went for an 11 mile bike ride this afternoon. I haven't ridden that much for quite a while, so boy am I feelin' it this evening!

Well, it's back to work tomorrow....blech. Tiffany and I are going to our up-up-up-upline's house in Illinois for a post-Christmas Christmas Party! We have to make a handmade gift out of Stampin' Up product for a gift exchange and come up with a card or paper project for everyone there to make themselves to take home. I love what I made for the gift exchange!!! I'll be sure and take a picture of it before I give it away. And, I love the card I made, too! I'll take a pic of that, too, of course.
