Happy New Year, Laura!
Hope your '08 is filled with good books, time to spend stampin' with your friends, oodles of vintage treasures, and lots of taco bell!

And yes, that hockey game was something to see! Even if only on t.v.
I especially enjoyed the outcome! :)

I can't remember the last time I finished reading one single book (with kids I only seem to have time to skim- and that's books with lots of pictures!) Happy New Year to you!
