It's time to give 2012 the boot and welcome in 2013. For the first time since our daughter was born, the Hubby and I will have the house to ourselves for New Years Eve. The Spawn has plans with friends so we're going to get down and get funky with our bad selves!
And after 20 years of having kids around the house, this is what it's' going to feel like at my place tonight!
I would like to end the year with one serious moment and say "Thank You" to my Super Secret Santa, Ian over at The Blog With No Name. This year, The Hubby and I had no money for Christmas presents and only a handful of people knew that. One of those people was Ian and the Saturday before Christmas a package arrived at my house. In that package was lead, lead to paint, lead to make a painter happy, lead that brought tears to my eyes.
Ian was so thoughtful that he remembered a comment I made on his blog months ago about wanting to one day paint an elephant-I now have an elephant to paint. Many of you know of my love for Highlanders, I now have a Highlander to paint. Many of you know I have no static grass for basing. I now have that grass. And many of you know of my fear of 6mm figures, I now have 6mm figures to paint (that's the part that made me cry).
It's New Years Eve people, so turn off those computers, grab a hold of someone you love and love them for all it's worth. I know I will.
