Christmas & Computers

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas. We decked the halls of our house this weekend, so I thought I needed to do a little blog decorating as well.

Also, I might be a little sparse on the ol' computer for a while. It's about to crash. I can just tell. You don't even want to know how long it took me to change the header. Patience was a big part of the last hour and a half of my life. I even called Sean while I was watching the bars sloooowly inch to completion on this dinosaur and told him I was about to lose my mind! So maybe I wasn't being very patient afterall......

My question is, we are probably going to have to buy a computer soon. Sean is dead-set on getting a laptop. Any suggestions? He wants a Mac, but aren't they pretty pricey? I want the best bang for our buck, and there isn't a lot of buck, okay.

Gotta get off the computer now. I think I'm starting to go cross-eyed.

Oh, and happy beginning of Advent. I hope as we all prepare our homes (and our blogs), we will also prepare our hearts for the coming of Christ!

edited to add: Thanks to my friend, Katie, for taking our Christmas card photo on Saturday. Katie is so awesome with the girls. She does such a good job of making them look like little angels. You would never know they give their mama trouble all day long or that the older one was not very cooperative during the photoshoot ;). You ROCK, Katie!

Wisdom From the Pope

“The inalienable dignity of every human being and the rights which flow from that dignity - in the first place the right to life and the defense of life - are at the heart of the church's message." Pope John Paul ended his address, saying: "In spite of divisions among Christians, 'all those justified by faith through baptism are incorporated into Christ...brothers and sisters in the Lord.'" Pope John Paul 2
