It's a New Year, but not a new me

That's right, no new me.  Which means I will probably continue to post on a regular 2 month basis.  Regardless, here we go.  I think I'll work backwards.  1.Tomorrow I am going to take down the Christmas tree- really.
2. I just finished reading Wuthering Heights.  Um, I thought it was supposed to be a romance- and what is UP with people writing books featuring totally unsympathetic main characters.  Weird. 
3.  I made ridiculously yummy roasted pepper soup.  I mish-mashed about 3 recipes, and I think I'll give it another try tomorrow and hopefully document it for all of blog-land.
4.  The kids are OBSESSED with Star Wars.  Even Nathan.  He runs around the room trying to sing the theme music.  It is ridiculously cute.
5.  Speaking of cute- check out my kids!
6.  Christmas was great.  The kids were all so excited about everything, and grateful- even for socks.  I really do have great kids who are appreciative of everything they got.  Brent got a new surround sound system (courtesy of Nathan's meddling), I got a new cd player for the kitchen, and we're finally parking in the garage!  Also, got the Pioneer Woman cookbook.  I'm sure we'll all pack on a few pounds before the end of 2011.  Good news for Brent, bad news for me!
7.  Sophie's bumps and bruises have all healed up nicely.  Her smile is almost completely evened out and I can see her scar is beginning to fade.

I put ours away yesterday, so my house wouldn't be total chaos today with Cam's birthday. Love seeing the kids. Kaylee prefers the Emperor's theme from Star's a little forbodding, eh....

Your kids seriously are darling.

Also, I'm with you on Wuthering Heights. I don't get why so many people love it so much. Personally, I hated it. Of course, I haven't read it for many years, and might feel differently now...but I don't have that kind of time in my life that I want to waste it re-reading a book I hated the first time. :)
