Post Christmas and other such

Christmas is done.
We had a wonderful day. 

Caden didn't wake us up until about 730a, which must be some kind of record for sleeping late on Christmas day in our family.

I've been having problems with that new photo storage place today. 
I'll crop a pic, which is all I do now cuz the damn thing freezes up if I try to do more, then copy it over to the blog and the crop changes wont be saved. 
I've wasted enough time futzing with that so no cropped pictures for today.

Caden showing off a new shirt, course you can't read it - it says all I do is win!




And the lovely Chyann.


Later in the day Caden had a lego build fest, while 


Chyann napped and Colton played his DS.


The boys hit the hot tub after the outside chores were done.


It's been really nice having Colton home again. 
We've seen quite a bit of him, but that is about to change I think - he's got two jobs going now.
As a helper for our electrician friend a few days a week and he got his old job back at Taco Johns working about four days a week. 
YAY Colton! Make some money.
(course I am snarky and say if you had worked during school you probably could have taken off the christmas break)

Can't figure out why this picture has a border around it when I didn't put one on it?
**note - one of the kids did the editing - didn't even know they knew what program I was using. 

The Hubby got me a Kindle Fire for Christmas.

Seems like I don't have a lot of time to sit and try to figure it out.
Although I do have Pandora going all day during work, I haven't figured out how to do audio books from the library yet - which is the main reason I kinda wanted one.
Good thing our local Library has been putting on how to classes for using them, because I'm going to have to sign up for one. 

With the Kindle Fire comes one month free of Amazon prime.
Which entails free movies, some books/audio books and 2 day shipping for purchasing items. 

And apparently there is this cloud thing, where you can store you photos?
Might have to check that out too.

Work for me this week has been incredibly busy.
We are flooded with work and LOTS of folks have taken time off this holiday week, which has left those of us that are working totally scrambling to stay ahead of the deadlines. 
In fact they are offering double time and a half for working New Years day.
Yeah, I think I'll be working.

That's all for now. 
Have a great Saturday!
