Maybe this year I will catch a peek of Santa Clause?!

This card reminds me of myself and my brothers at Christmas. Every year we tried to stay awake and catch a glimpse at Santa Clause......we never did catch him. One year however, my brother did sleep walk and bump into (and I quote) "A big fat tummy and beard" he woke up upon bumping into this "big fat tummy" and he got such a fright he ran back to bed LOL. Funny thing is that my Dad is a rather big man with a massive beard (at the time lol) It still cracks me up that he was convinced that is was Santa and that none of the 3 of us ever made the connection HAHAHAHA!

New Blogger......Hate it!!

Well I lasted out as long as I finally could without being made switch to the new blogger, and I still HATE it!! :(
Is it just me or is the new dashboard really badly designed? One major problem that I am having is when I click on somebodys blog in my reading list if they are at the bottom for example a blog beginning with "W" you then have to scroll all the way back up to the top of the page to read (or preview) their lastest post. This is already a nightmare just trying to browse blogs, I can only imagine how horrible it will be when I am try to go through blogs to see which challenges that I can enter :(

If anybody had any help or advice for a way around this I would be soooooo greatful and love you forever :) lol
