Happy New Year SmileyCentral.com !!!!
This year my resolution is to be healthier (and boy is that a big resolution). I'll be posting more on this resolution throughout January.

Some people say, "A picture says it all"! So, I figure this month I'll agree with this statement, since I've been so busy. I'm sorry we didn't get all of our Holiday Cards out to everyone (I think we went up to the letter "O" and gave up), but let me know if you would like me to send you one :(
Below is a collage/montage of the best of my December 2007. You can find more pictures on my Flickr site by clicking on the Flickr icon on the left side of the page.

One more post to go before the New Year SmileyCentral.com! I have plenty of resolutions this year and will be changing my format a bit, so stay tuned...

I've decided to move all of my favorite and personal videos over to my new Vlog (Video Blog) to clear room on this site for pictures and my thoughts on the world. A link to the Vlog is right below my title bar on top of this screen. Or you can also visit the Vlog at: Cheri’s Video Blog.

I will add a Video to this site at least once a week and will note important videos on this Blog, so feel free to bookmark both sites.

This is great...I added the heads, but everything else came from jibjab.com. The URL is listed on the left handside column, under Favorite Websites. Do you recognize any of the characters? Check this out:

Merry Christmas!!!
(for those of you who celebrate this holiday)

Because of my extremely busy holiday schedule this year, I was not able to complete sending out my Holiday cards by Christmas day. Although, the remaining cards will go out in the mail tomorrow. Just in case, you didn't get one and would like a copy for yourself, the pics are above and below. As you can see, the background changed from the Hollywood scene (last year) to a background depicting our new and current home back in the Bay Area (NorCal). Note the Golden Gate Bridge in the background.

Dave has been dabbling in graphic design and edited these pics. Please feel free to comment on what you think (positive or negative). We would greatly appreciate your feedback and constructive criticism.

It's Christmas Eve and I'm home with Dave. We couldn't be happier to be home together for Christmas!!!!!

We wish all of you....
Animations - happy holidays

We are not in Washington, as a local family member passed a few days ago (Dave's Grandpa Emery), so we stayed with family here.
Please check back over the next few days for updated pics, videos and updates.

The last 3 weeks have been the busiest and most transforming in my entire life. Unfortunately, I am limited on time, as Dave and I will be heading to Washington tomorrow morning to spend time with his mom, stepdad and his uncle and family and we will return home the day after Christmas. I'm really looking forward to spending time away from everything and enjoying quality time with the family...relaxing. I have been thinking about changing my route with this blog and will comment more on this subject when I return home. I sincerely hope everyone is enjoying the Holiday Season and please take time out to relax and enjoy "you"!

I have a few Holiday cards being sent to friends and relatives, but for those of you whose addresses, I don't have and for those of you...I do, but you haven't received their cards yet, please check out this video:
I have a ton more to post and plan to post more tomorrow night (things don't always go as planned). In the meantime, here is a short video of my niece dancing to a song from High School Musical 2 today:

And Emily was soo excited about this gift...I asked her to repeat her reaction when she opened the gift the first time, so I could capture the moment:

I posted this last night, but the short movies just finished uploading this morning. My blog will be updated tonight.
