Heated seat... really?

So, our 1st "laugh out loud" at yourself moment for 2010 is this: after getting our van back from being serviced, Kent and I both kept thinking to ourselves, "Wow, why is my back so hot?" when we were driving. We've had our 2002 Odyssey for about 5 years and neither of us realized the driver's seat is HEATED! Once I read the manual and finally located the switch, turned on to "High", the mystery was solved. Just had to laugh about it!

And I've finally crafted this year! Made a birthday banner for a friend. Not great photos (it's been too cold to go outside and take photos til today):

And, while I had my stuff out, I made a new blog banner too... but you probably already saw it :-) Felt good to create!

Hello, 2010!

We've been letting the kids stay up to see the ball drop on New Year's Eve for a couple of years now. Tessa (6) was tired this year, so we decided we'd do our "toast" early. When I mentioned doing our "toast", she said "Can I have 2 pieces 'cause it's really yummy." So Tessa's "toast" was the buttered variety.

Then we all had a more traditional toast to welcome 2010 with "special glasses" and Wink (yes, plain Wink... Kent and I used to love Diet Wink... then they quit making it... so we got the "real thing" last night for New Year's Eve... since we drink ginger ale all the time).

Cheers! And may the new year bring us a renewed spirit of gratitude and a constant state of thankfulness. We are truly blessed.
