White Elephant

My family came together this afternoon for our annual white elephant gift exchange and we had a blast. My brother put together a slide show presentation using the photos from my daughter's wedding and it was so cute. It was about a frog named frogger. And this year was really unusual. One of my sons was unable to be home this year because he has finals tomorrow at Texas A&M so we set up a web cam and he played the game with us. He ended up with a Cowboy tee shirt that no one wanted after the Cowboys lost again today. I snagged a bag of goodies from Hawaii including some real expensive coffee and a turtle made out of a coconut. Pretty cool, huh. And the gift that was stolen the most was a tee shirt that said "I came to the Patterson Christmas party and all I got was this stupid shirt!" LOL Loved that one. My daughter-in-law got that one. Perfect white elephant gift. Can't wait until the next one.

Still trying to get into the habit of blogging. Not doing so great but this is an improvement.

New Blog

Hi all,

I recently suffered the effects of a hacker at Shabby Scrap Designs. The hacker meant it for evil, but it was turned to good for me as I was able to update the site with a new fresh look.  In the process I came across this adorable blog template created by New Life Designs at ShabbyPickle and loved it so much that I decided to get a new blog and use this cute template for Snips and Such. The store is better, the blog is better, and well, I'm happy about that. Hopefully I will be a better blogger now that I have a blog that I love and find much easier to use. I'll be adding freebies in the next few days so check back for something fun and cute.
