Happy 2013!!

Hi Y'all! How was your CHRISTmas?
I had a great CHRISTmas with friends this year. Lots of partying, gift exchanging, food and fun with Nina and her family & Carolyn, Jill and Scot, Jannette & Mike and his family, Teri & Pam and Dr. Nair and family! Got lots of fun phone calls with family members too. Listened to Hayden open all her presents from me...that was so much fun. Margaret took some photos that she will share for me to make some pages with. Tried talking with Jade, Ruby and Jayson, but they were too excited to talk on the phone. Nice call from my nephew Jeff and from my niece Sebrina and her mother Myrl. Kathy and Penny spent at least an hour on the phone with me. I even got calls and texts and 3, yes 3 CHRISTmas cards from Amy! I also got a call from Afghanistan that was super great! Got flowers delivered CHRISTmas Eve from my friend Inez. Phone calls from my friend Gerri in Ohio, a call from my stepdaughter Tracy, a call from my friend Debbie in Florida and cards from my "new found family" in Indiana! I was really, really, really surprised a lot this CHRISTmas! Lots of great memories made too! If you haven't seen the video of us acting up at Jannette's, go to my Facebook account and watch it! Too Funny!
We had a pretty sunny, but cool, day yesterday, so I took down my outside decorations and put them away! I also took down my tree and put everything away for next year! Got my house cleaned and rearranged! Got all my laundry done too. Got all my work caught up and am ready to start out a brand new year! I even have my ham, black eyed peas, cabbage and cornbread to make for tomorrow. I think I am all set with my champagne and my girls to ring in 2013 right!
My wish for all of you is a safe, happy, prosperous, peaceful and healthy 2013! I hope it doesn't fly by as fast as 2012 has. I hope you and yours have a chance to make lots and lots of memories this new year! Like the page I created using my friend Neli's New Year overlay? The photo is about 2 months old.
Hope you enjoy this New Year's Eve with loved ones! Catch you next year! LOL! Love y'all! Mat

  2. Good to hear your Christmas was great. And oh whee, what an energy you had, all Christmas stuff cleared away and lots of other things done. Brrrr,that;s coming up next week for me LOL!
    Today will have to be in the kitchen for a while, to make some snacks and so for tonight.
    We'll have a quiet one, staying home with our cat(who is a little bit nervous because of the fireworks)
    Wishing you a tremendous ending of 2012 and a very good 2013, with good health as first and lots of happiness following it.

  3. Your Christmas sounds fabulous! My tree will be coming down either today or tomorrow. Pogo and I have just enjoyed a special breakfast, and will enjoy a nice evening at home watching TV (and maybe the ball dropping in Times Square if we can stay awake). I hope the new year is good for you and your girls. May you be blessed with happiness, good health, and prosperity. Happy New Year! Hugs, Edna B.

  4. Dear friend Mat, this star was beautiful with you!
    My dear friend, thank you for your kind words, as always.
    Thank you for your caring and thank you for your friendship!
    That 2013 brings health, peace, joy, love, happiness and success for you.
    May God bless you and your family.
    Happy 2013!
    With love, Neli.
