Christmas was W O N D E R F U L !!!

I have been reading a lot of blogs lately. They all are so eloquently written, spiritual and inspirational. I have no problem with that, and I do enjoy reading them. But lately, I've been feeling a little lonely here on my blog. I haven't been getting any comments. I guess my blog isn't that "spiritual or inspirational" for some bloggers.
Like I said in my very first post, this blog is for me. This is my journal, so I have something to look back on when my kids are older, to help me vent, and sometimes I really need to do that.
I'm not the best writer, (and my sister is probably agreeing with me as she reads this post) but I do enjoy it, for me! So, if I've been "boring" you all, and not posting "inspirational" topics, it's just not Dad was the preacher, not me. I am more the "sarcastic funny one" all my friends and family know me as that. From time to time there will be a "little inspirational piece".....but more about my family and me. That's why my blog is called......"A day in the life of Liz"......not "Your daily inspiration from Liz".....Ha, that sure doesn't sound like me! Enough said, I sure hope you leave comments, I sure have missed them. Here's a little post about our Christmas here at the Somma's. enjoy!

Well, Christmas is over, what a wonderful time we had here in the Somma household! We all woke up early, Davey was up by 6am! Had to drag Becca out of bed, unusual for her, but she's a preteen now. We started opening our gifts, and what a delight it was watching our kids open them all, and expressing their happiness. Hubby loved his gifts as well. My hubby surprised me....and what a nice way of doing so. All the gifts were done, and just the stockings were left. Well, I went into the kitchen to get another cup of coffee and came back into the living room, and there it was for me. First I opened the stocking stuffer, and it was one of those memory cards for my camera. I said "what do I need this for?" Then Hubby said "here, open this one!" Wow, what a surprise, a new digital camera! I love it...and it's RED! My favorite color. Thank you Hubby. Don't forget my birthday is coming in February!
Becca got the Uggs she wanted, and much more..........
Davey got the Geo Trax Airport that he wanted...and much more..............
Hubby got Madden Football for the Wii, and a little more....

Then we packed up and went to my brother's house for the day. On the way, we traveled to the cemetery to visit with Dad. It was cold, and his grave was covered with snow. We couldn't even make our way to his grave. So, I got back into the car, and Becca and my nephew Michael went to the grave. Dad's body is in that grave, not his spirit, that's another post...and hey, maybe I will even get "spiritual" on that one!

Anyway, we had a very nice time at my brother's house. All in all our Christmas was wonderful. I still have all the decorations up. I'm not one to take them down before New Years. Yes I know Christmas is over, wow how fast it came, and then over.

Pictures of us on Christmas Eve..............Enjoy!

See, your first comment and it's from someone you don't even know! Enjoy! Christmas was glad your camera is now up to date and I can actually see the pictures I take in a big window instead of that tiny little thing!

What a wonderful Christmas! Our little man C got the Geo Trax airport too - from my parents - the whole Geo Trax set up he has now takes up most of our playroom! Thankfully my oldest O likes legos that don't take up much room, and my little girl M likes Littlest Pet Shop which take up hardly anyroom - otherwise I'd just go crazy with all those big toys!!!!

Happy New Year!

Hey Liz, Thanks for stopping by my blog, and commenting!! You know, we each decide our purpose in blogging, and probably none is truly of more value (apart from the inspirational ones) than that of a family journal! Close friends and family members will probably visit often, and others will probably pop in occasionally to catch up with you.

The purpose of my blog is to connect with like-minded women, share homemaking ideas, and encourage those who need a lift. I am having a lot of fun with it, too! So many nice people!

New Year Blessings to you and your lovely family.

hey, Liz! I read you pretty regularly and I enjoy catching up on the person you are now. So long ago we first knew each other! Your Christmas sounds great. Ours was, too. Very quiet, if you remember I am an only child. So we sleep over at my parents house (about 30 min. away) and drag all the gifts, dog etc. out there to do the big deal on Christmas morning. I think Lisa was probably up here and didn't call me. again!! Happy New Year to you all. btw - I have a heck of a time with Blogger remember who I am and accepting my sign-in. Or I would comment more.

Just copy and paste the award into a blog entry and hand it out to a few more people!

Hey friend! I LOVE reading your blog. You are so good at sharing what life looks like in the David Somma household. Keep it up and don't get discouraged.

I for one was horrible about checking anyones blog last week. Steve was home unexpectedly, and as nice as it was to have him around, I just don't have the same freedoms as when he's working!

I love your Christmas pictures. You had a ton of gifts under that tree girl! What fun to see the smile on your family's faces. And I'm excited that you got a new camera, and that it's RED. My cell phone is red and I love it! Can't wait to see more pictures.

Have a happy day. Great big long distance hugs from us!

Lizzy, blogging started in 1992. It was intended to be a personal log or journal. So your right on. Your blog can be whatever you want it to be. For you it just so happends to be your journal. So instead of using a fancy book of lined pages you are using something that lets you be way more creative. You use pictures and words to put your thoughts and ideas down so that they will be around forever. It just so happens that we let other people read them. So forget about everyone else. Just write what feels right for you. I love reading your blog.

I am not often around or awake for all that goes on around here. So for me it is a way to keep up, and a way to remember everything that goes on in our lives.

No Offense to others, but wordless days or other things like poking just does not interest me.

SO just do what is best for you.

If no one else will leave you a nice comment I will.

Signed The KING.

Okay, Dave, that's about the sweetest thing I've ever heard you say. When a girl's got a guy like that, what else does she need?
