I'd like to wish all my family, friends and blogging friends a very Merry Christmas! I hope the day is full of happiness and joy.
Today has been a loooong day! Todd and I were up early with the birds, as I had a little last minute shopping to do and I wanted to get to the store not long after it opened (7am). I was able to get my last bits of food, gifts, and stocking stuffers.
It was while we were shopping I noticed... the horror! The strap on my $10 Wal-Mart purse had broken! Argh I loved that purse!!! I took a quick look in the store (aka Wal-Mart) but nothing caught my fancy and there was nothing comparable. I told Todd he could take me to Danier Leather on Boxing Day and get me a nice leather purse, LOL!
From there we went out for breakfast at our favourite place, this is tradition we started last year. Its a nice way to start the day since we celebrate the season with my side of the family on Christmas Eve. We came home to unpack, clean the house, make lasagna, and relax before everyone showed up for dinner. I got the best gift ever from my baby brother, a proper flash to go with my Cannon Rebel! Yay, now I can take great pictures in dim or big rooms. The pop-up flash on my camera just wouldn't do the trick.
At 11:59 pm I celebrated a Christmas Eve Happy Dance! (photo taken with snazzy new flash, after midnight, what a great job it did!)

The other day I finished up yet another ornament to add into a gift basket for my TKD instructor.
I hope everyone has a great Christmas Day, we'll be celebrating with Todd's family.
