Well we will be ringing in the new year at my parents house this year, where my dad, Harry and I are all sick with colds. It should be great fun. I will hopefully post some good pics tomorrow. But I have to go and get a couple more things that we need for tonight.
Happy New Year!

So I must say that Mate really surprised me this Christmas, not only did he buy me a beautiful diamond ring but he also bought me the matching diamond earrings!!! HOLY CRAPOLA!!! Needless to say what I thought was a popcorn tin, was in fact a popcorn tin but contained a small white box with a gorgeous diamond ring!

Since I had some time today before all of the nightly festivities I thought that I would do a quick post. Well actually I had an "accident" in the kitchen making the dessert for tonight that I thought was blog worthy! I was making pudding torte for Christmas Eve and I thought that I had read the recipe right to combine all of the ingredients, boy I was wrong. After another quick trip to the grocery store to get the ingredients again, it is now safely setting in the refrigerator. I hope that it will be good, part of it I am sure about, but since I am not sure if anyone that is going to be at my aunt's house for Christmas tonight might be reading this I won't say which part. Let's just keep our fingers crossed that it turned out and will be good!

I had to post this picture of Mate because it is one of my favorites. It was from the day that we got about 12 inches of snow! He had gotten up at 2:30 in the morning to shovel. I went outside about 4:45ish and took this picture of him. I love his smile. I think that I had said something funny to him because I know that all of that snow wasn't making him smile, especially since he shoveled it all, and didn't use the snow blower because he didn't think that he could make so much noise! Crazy man! Anyway, I can't believe that Christmas is in two days, it seems like it took forever to get here and now that it is almost here I wish that it would wait just a little bit. Tonight I have a my last final exam of the semester so I am going to keep studying for it after this post. It snowed here again yesterday so the driveway is full again, I should at some point get out there and shovel but I really don't want to! I am looking out the window of our studio and the icsicles are hanging down from the drain pipe, they look so pretty, but they aren't dripping any water down from them so that must mean that it is really cold out there. Good thing I don't have to leave until about 5 o'clock. Well that is all for today's posting. If i miss getting on here before Christmas, I hope you all have a Merry Christmas!

So we have had quite a lot of snow today! About 12" since last night around 11pm. Mate got up at 2:30am and started shoveling out the driveway and his car, then at about 4:30am I woke up, went outside to check on him, he called Harry and we drove over to my mom and dad's house. At about 5:30 Mate and Harry headed out to start digging out all of Harry's customers! About 6 houses later they came home to a lunch of grilled cheese and chicken noodle soup - made by me! Meanwhile I held down the Steldt fort while Mom went to work. Now I am relaxing, I think that I am going to go and crochet for awhile. It almost looks like the sun is going to come and say a quite hello and good-bye! This picture was taken out the front door at my mom and dad's house. I hope that everyone else is enjoying their snow day!

Things here are now starting to get busy! With Christmas only 2.5 weeks away (that is really hard to believe) I am crazy busy. Not only is Christmas coming soon but finals are in a week! YIKES!!! So lately lost of studying and homework so my posting has been some what delayed. Last weekend was West Bend's Christmas parade and the whole family went! It was freezing! But afterward we warmed up with some nice Mexican food! This weekend my friend Amanda and I baked Christmas cookies, this year we only made two types of cookies but dipped lots of things in chocolate and made peanut butter balls which are a favorite of mine! In two weeks Mom, Sherry and I will make Christmas cookies too, well I should say that Mom and Sherry will make them, the way that things are going for me I will have to take that day off so that I can get crocheting done. I am pleased to say that even though we are very busy I have made two blankets and a scarf so far! Yea me! Well that is all for now, I have to get back to crocheting as the homework for this evening is complete!

So we had a great turkey day yesterday, I ate way to much as usual! But dinner was a great success! Auntie Shey and Jeff were our hostess and host, oh and Goofy too! The house was full to the brim I don't think that another person or animal (there were 3 dogs) would have fit. I got good practice trying to get through all the people for Black Friday today. I was up at 3:25AM and out the door by 3:45AM, at Wal-Mart around 4AM and then out by 5:30 and in line at Fleet & Farm by then and out the door there at 6:25 and then off to Menards. It was one crazy morning but dang I scored some great deals! That is all for this post as I am running low on steam for the day and I think that my bed is calling to me! Love to all, hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving. Only 28 days till Christmas!!

So last weekend we went to Cafe Luna to hear Courtney's boyfriend's jazz band play, and boy did we have a great time. I am talking three chocolate martini's good!! They played some great music including, Thriller, Ghostbuster's theme song and the Addams' Family! We got home quite late for us, 1am, but the next day was daylight savings so it worked out ok for us! I have now started my next set of classes at school, Psychology and Anthropology! Yesterday I took my first Anthropology test....yikes is all that I can say about that! Just a short post today, I have more homework to do :( and I have to keep plugging away on my Christmas gifts! Next weekend I will put up the tree with Amanda, make Christmas cards with Courtney, and scrapbook somewhere in there too!

The house is always so much quieter when Mate is gone. I have to turn the tv on or listen to some music when he isn't here because I don't like the silence. This picture is one of my favorites of him, I took it this past weekend when we were at Ridge Run. He looks so peaceful and in deep thought. I was suppose to be crocheting tonight since he wasn't home but somehow I got stuck on the computer! My OCD kicked in because I got my final essay grade in my history class...a 95% and I really want to know my overall grade...the waiting is killing me. I keep checking online but so far nothing...hopefully something will show up tomorrow!

So I thought that it was high time that I started blogging again. So much is going on and so much has changed since the last blog. Mate has no graduated, (looking for a job if anyone knows of anything) I have gone back to school, so far so good, I will know this weekend how I did on my two classes that I have taken so far this summer! Keep your fingers crossed! I have really gotten into crafting even more than usual, I am making all homemade Christmas presents this year, talk about ambitious! I almost have one of them done! Only several dozen more to go! I will post some photos of our walk in Ridge Run park this past weekend, I just love fall.
