Season's greetings :)

Wow, it's been awhile.

Okies, first up - the new house is wonderful - Rhon, I promise I will post photos soon!

We're pretty broke - for some reason all the big bills have come in the last month or so and it's a really suckful time of year for that to happen, not to mention trying to set up the new house and all. Who'da thunk that grass could be so damn expensive?! Grass?! I ask you! (That's the turf kind, not the other kind). Just gotta hang in there until tax time, and then I can breathe a bit easier.

It is so so so hot here, and they've been promising rain but it hasn't been forthcoming. I am so envious of all you guys in the Northern Hemisphere right now, let me tell you (Cath knows what I'm talking about). Hate the heat, hate Summer. Can you imagine what it's like for all the poor old men dressed in Santa suits here in Australia, sweltering away? Ridiculousness! I wonder how many Santas we lose to heat stroke and the like every year?

~ Anyways... ~

I hope that whatever you're doing for the festive season, it brings you much peace, joy, love, laughter, and all that good stuff of life. (Please accept this in place of the Christmas card I never got around to sending you this year! Lol...)

haha Why, thanks for the card, Ursy! :P

I'm broke, too. Skinny ass Santa over here. Moving and making a home is expensive! Can't wait to see pics.

Please accept this diamond ring in place of the Christmas cards I have never in my life managed to send out!

Merry Christmas in your new house! Sounds like a fantastic Christmas gift for you and your family. You've got that and each other, who needs anything else???

We have wanted and needed....well wanted.....a new LCD HD TV for a while and decided that's what we'd do for each other for Christmas this year. And of course, everything goes on sale at Christmas, so it is now sitting in our living room with little Christmas decs all around it. It is fantastic and we love it. So because of that we are only spending $50 (give or take a few dollars) each on each other this year. We don't mind 'cause we are loving this TV every day!

As far as it being hot. I can sorta relate as I grew up in Southern California where you could often go to the beach on Christmas Day. Not sweltering by any means, but up in the 70's and 80's F. I never even saw snow till I was like 12.

Anyway, enjoy your Christmas in the new home and try to stay cool. The best from Sandy and me.
