Bye Bye 2009!

Not exactly sad to see you go!
As we enter another decade.....wishing you all blessings and memories that will take you through the year...
And if you are taking down your decorations, don't throw those cards away...make a LO out of them. This was something that Ali did a few years ago and I have finished off the year doing it ever since!

A Belated Merry Christmas!

Talk about a speed week!!!! Work got crazy, as it does at the end of the semester...then we had a MAJOR Blizzard - a record 26 inches of snow the Saturday before Christmas, which put me waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay behind. I am proud to say though, that I did get everything done - cooked, cleaned, wrapped and ready for Christmas Eve and Christmas Day - usually I just do a big buffet bash - my entire family - all my kids, my grandkids, my sister and her family and my niece and her family...all jammed into my tiny house - and no one seems to mind at all! It is always a great, fun time and this year was no different - lots of good food and some tasty cocktails - the hit of the evening were these little candy mice that I made. I could not resist posing them with a mouse trap and featured on the very front of the plate are the Three Blind Mice, which had the kids howling in laughter! I bought crazy hats for the kids and we did our annual song fest. I hope someone got a better photo than this one though. The hats were Santa heads and Snowman heads and really cute but I think maybe too big for most of these little heads!
This year, I had Rich's family the next day for a sit down dinner - it was very nice, but I was WIPED out with two days of cooking and cleaning up. It did not stop me however, from running out to do some after Christmas Shopping!!Now that I have recovered, I am getting ready to take an online Scrapbooking Design class - I really don't "know" how to scrapbook, so when my friend Connie talked to me about it, I just figured I'd go for it. I am already in a panic about my 1st assignment! Will keep you posted though!
