Happy New Year!

Happy New Year, my friends!

Merry Christmas

I didn't have a chance to wish you a Merry Christmas, so here is a little "tree" I created. (Lisa, the
yarn breeding experiments resulted in multiple births!)

Merry Christmas!

I went home to Ft. Lauderdale and spent 10 days with my loved ones. Some highlights included:

Fishing in Jacksonville with some of my favorite kids. (My knitting skills translated into being the master detangler of fishing line!)

Fishing in Jacksonville

Finally using my Lenox Liberty plates from Aunt Marty for Christmas Eve dinner.

Watching Stormy, an African Grey, drink my mom's water because Aunt Kathy spoils him and he only likes ice-water!


Gifting a quilt for Brooke's new baby. (Details later).


Cuddling with my new nephew, Santino aka Sonny aka Cutest Baby Alive recipient for 2007.

Cutest Baby Alive!!!

Pretending that all of my presents were gigantic next to our teeny tree this year. Disregard that silly human pictured not to scale.

The highlight of the year was definitely falling instantly in love with this little guy. No resolutions this year, but things are looking up already.
