Sigh of Relief

My holiday cards are here!! Yipppeeee! They came in the nick of time and again I under ordered. I ordered 20 more cards than last year and sent separate Hanukkah cards and I was still short on cards.  I don't know how that is possible as I am really not that popular.

I feel that I finally have a handle on the holidays and now I can enjoy.  I am sending the last batch of gifts today.  The total gift recipient count was 41 people not including toys for tots or the adopted family.   I don't know if that was up or down from last year but it seems excessive and stressful.  I am not going to think about it as I am finished and I do not have to cook the holiday meal.  Hurrayyyy!

So wrapping up 2010, it started out not so great, became wonderful at the end of the first quarter, got a little tough for a bit and we are ending on a high note.  2011 will bring a first birthday for LO, a happy 4 year wedding anniversary and a sad 10 year anniversary at the end of the year.  Overall,  I am looking forward to a new year and new adventures. 

Blogging has been great for me and I have to thank everyone that pushed me to do it especially Polka Dot Hippo and DH.  I love reading about your lives and children and trying to find some comedy in mine.  I love the comments and hope that you continue to care read about our family in 2011.  This mommy blogger is probably going to be scarce until the new year as there are parties to attend and LO loving to give.  Have a wonderful holiday and happy new year!
