What a whirlwind life has been lately! In a good way of course. The Holidays are pretty much over and we are all trying to adjust back to life as normal. We spent it at the beach with my family and we had a WONDERFUL time. Lots of good food and good times to be had. Maddie racked up as usual. I hate the thought of having to unpack all of her "goods". Maybe I can get Jeff to do that. Hee hee

Anyhow, amongst the festivities we always do a Chinese gift exchange and it's a BLAST! There are always FAB gifts to choose from. Well, this year the gifts included LOTS of jewelry and some of it was NOT costume, rachet straps (for the boys), a set of solar powered lights for the yard, $30 worth of scratch off lottery tickets, tools, and perfume. Well, Jeff REALLY wanted those rachet straps so being the good wife that I am, traded my DIAMOND circle necklace for those straps. Then it was Jeff's turn to pick and he picked up a box, opened it up and low and behold there is another DIAMOND necklace in that box. Evidently, I had a temporary moment of insanity and told him to trade it for the lottery tickets. I NEVER take chances but this time I was like...what the heck! So I scratched and scratched and scratched....and guess what!!!

I won!!

$7 whole dollars!! WOOHOO! Next time, I will just keep the jewelry. It was fun anyhow.

Hope the rest of you had a WONDERFUL Christmas as well.
