Here's to a cheap and lazy 2008

The Bumps are spending a quiet, peaceful, family-oriented New Year's Eve.

Today we went out in the sled. More snow fell last night and it wasn't too cold so I even managed to get dressed and take some photos. And that really says something because I am DAMN lazy.

OK, so Bumper is not on a sled. It's a flat box with a rope tied through the front. Seriously folks, have you seen the prices of those damn flimsy pieces of probably toxin-laden sleds at the store? ... OK... yes, it's true: I'm cheap.


But this post isn't about my laziness or cheapness. I'm here to wish you and your loved ones a peaceful welcome to 2008.

Bumper on the other hand is planning on rockin' out and making trouble wherever she goes.


What's that saying about the apple falling in close proximity to the tree?

Oh whatever... anyhow:


A huge thank you to everyone out there that reads motherbumper (and doesn't send me hate mail/comments - to you I say CENSORED).

Read you in 2008!

Or you could say the 'sled' is an environmentally-sound approach to dealing with all those pesky boxes that pile up after Christmas.

Happy New Year!

Ahhh, snow. We haven't had any REAL snow since maybe 1992? So, I'm kind of jealous.
