It was the night before Christmas...


Hooray for Christmas eve!!! Everyone is on holidays, relaxing, chatting, eating, and excited about tomorrow... what will Santa bring?

I'm starting my post now about what I have and haven't done. Visiting Russia and a few more I've gotten close, but never completed. I'm also trying to visit all 50 states in the United States.

Good luck with your goals for the New Year and I hope you and your family are having a wonderful and warm Christmas in Oz.

Merry Christmas to you too. I hope you have a lovely day. Christmas is fun! We've had Santa presents already - very cute. Great list - very long. Will look at again later and get some new ideas for 2009.
