Happy Holidays!

Greg is still working on getting the Christmas videos to the blog, but I thought I would give the latest updates anyway. We had a great Christmas. The girls were darling on Christmas morning, and they all got what they wanted (I will enjoy that while I can). Everything seemed very picturesque with some heavy snow storms helping with the "white Christmas" feeling.
Greg got a new laptop, a bathrobe and Super Mario Galaxy & Dance Dance Revolution for the Wii, and we have laughed ourselves silly trying to improve our dancing abilities. Greg took the week between Christmas and New Year off, and in that time our average "grade" on DDR has improved from an E to a C or D. However, on New Year's Eve, we took the game to Greg's parents and we both got an "A" the first time we danced together. We were rather pleased with ourselves.

It's a good thing we have a new exercising game, though, because I went to the Cheesecake Factory for dinner last night, and I think I consumed enough calories to take me through 2008 (and I brought more than half of my meal home). I had a delicious herb-crusted salmon and shared a piece of Godiva Chocolate Cheesecake that is chocolate-heaven.

And now it is time to get back to real life. Becca has gone back to school, Greg has gone back to work, and hopefully my kids will go back to sleep at some point today because they did NOT want to sleep last night. But even if I didn't sleep, at least I had "visions of cheesecake" dancing in my head!

Sounds like you guys had a great Christmas! We too got the Dance Dance Revolution game. I think I am definietly too old for it! Even on the training mode with the music slowed down I can hardly do it! It is entertaining to watch me try though! Guess what one of my New Year's Resolutions are ... to get together with you guys! We haven't seen you forever and we miss you! Lets plan something soon!
