Traditions

Last year I started a new tradition for New Year's Day.  I made a 30 min slideshow of the year, put some of the music that we listened to most that year in the background, and added in a few of the funniest videos.  I used the movie maker software that came on my computer, and it wasn't nearly as difficult as I had anticipated, except I never figured out how to get it to a format that would play on a DVD player (help would be appreciated here), but we watched it on the computer and loved it.  The girls have asked to watch it over and over this year.

Today I'm trying to stuff some of my favorite pics in a folder, so I don't have to do it all the week after Christmas.  I'm also running down the playlist, trying do decide which Taylor Swift songs I want my grandchildren to have to listen to.    :)

What is a favorite family tradition of yours?

It's all perspective...

So after I posted yesterday, I talked to my Sister, and she said I was being funny about posting the picture.  She had already seen a picture and was convinced the house was not extravagant.  Well, if you consider that I now have more living space, and nicer living space than about 98% of the world, then it does seem extravagant.  But I guess it is just perspective.  If you compare it to neighborhoods in North Dallas, yes, it would be in the very modest category.  But anyway, it isn't a marble palace, but like I said, the nicest house I have ever lived in.  And here is the picture...


















I had thought about posting more pictures...maybe some interior, but I thought, you know what Katie, you could use this to your advantage...so instead of posting pictures, I'm extending the invitation for you to come in person to see the inside (which really isn't that spectacular...I don't want to get your hopes up too much...I really just want you to visit...).

Vacancy begins in March...let me know.  :)
