Christmas Eve 2008

Each Christmas Eve, my family has dinner at our house. This year both my grandmas and pap came to visit for Christmas. After dinner, my brother and I always exchange the gifts we bought each other. This year, he bought me Wii points so I could download Tetris and the original Super Mario Brothers game. He also bought me a classic controller to use with my Wii.

Here are some pictures from Christmas Eve

Malone, Your Mom Cheats At Scrabble- Pens vs TB 12.23.08

On Tuesday night, I took my brother to the Penguin game against Tampa Bay. I know what you’re thinking…. easy win against one of the worst teams in the league…. NOPE! The Pens ended up losing 2-0. How they managed to get shut out against Tampa, well, let’s just leave it at- it was one of the worst games I’ve seen in person for a LONG time.

Santa made an appearance at the game...

Apparently my letter to Santa asking for 5 Orpik hits, 4 Malkin assists, 3 Sidney goals, 2 standings points, and 1 Fleury shutout got lost on its way to the North Pole… Apparently, Santa is NOT a Penguins fan!

The best part of the evening was wishing that Ryan Malone still played for the Penguins instead of Tampa and finally finding a Pens lanyard after 3 months of searching.

The funniest part of the night was when the guy in the section over kept yelling things to the players on the ice. Among the highlights are:

“Malone, your mom cheats at scrabble!”


“Hit him! He’s only 4 foot 8!” (in reference to Martin St. Louis who is really about 5’9, but compared to everyone else looks like he should be the star of Little People, Big World on TLC)

Since nothing exciting happened during the game, all my pictures are of warm-up

My boys...

Grandma's 90th Birthday Party

My Grandma Wyant turned 90 years old on December 11, 2008, so the family had a surprise birthday party for her the weekend before.

What could have been a Jerry Springer showdown actually was a very nice afternoon...

Grandma had me laughing as soon as she walked into the banquet room. The look on her face when she saw everyone there for lunch was hysterical, she actually looked mad. Then, I think she realized that it was a party for her and she finally smiled.

You said she's how old??!!??!!?? Why, she doesn't look a day over 18.

Happy 90th Birthday, Grandma!


After Lilly was fed and we were waiting for Grandma to open her presents, Kristie decided she was going to take a picture of me and her.

Here it is

That is what happens when you press the On/Off button instead of the shutter!!

Aunt Laura, I know I'm cute. Will you please stop taking my picture!

Photoshop and HD

On Black Friday, I bought Photoshop Elements 7, but I haven't had time to load it onto my computer. Once I do that, then I will be able to blog about my Grandma's 90th birthday party last Saturday.

My other major purchase, and the real reason I got up at 4 on Black Friday, was for my new 32" LCD HD TV. The HD cable is coming Tuesday... awoohooo! Seriously, can you imagine me watching Sid and the boys in HD???? Do I even need to mention that I will be so super excited!!

And in the words of Chandler... "Mini-wave in celebration of me... awoohoo!"
