Happy New Year.........I'm Baaaack!!!

Woo Hoo.....resident Geek Hubby finally got my computer back up and running!! (always good to have a resident geek)!

I would like to say a big thank you to all the many friends that sent EM while my computer was "down and out". It makes me feel very good to know that so many of you care!!

I feel like I have arrived after the ball....I missed all the holiday blog posts!!!

In a Nutshell:



We had the annual baking of the pumpkin pies.....Princess Cupcake made all the pies......she is as tall as I am now and about all I'm good for now is to keep her company while she reads the recipe, gathers the incredients and sets about baking....well....except for the clean up part.....she graciously allows me to do that part!!! LOL!!























Bella still likes to help out in the Kitchen when she can "sneak" the time in!!





Bella loves the tiny bit of warmth given off by the Christmas Lights....so I let her enjoy her time.






It only took Heidi a few days to wrestle an ornament off the tree.....but then she was satisfied.....the tree survived despite the aftermath of needles on the floor!!








Presents were given and well loved!!








Some were easily bored and found new ways to enjoy their toys! (we threw away the bag).



New Year's Eve found Cindy and I spinning the new year in while the guys held down the fort.

Hmmm....this spinning in the new year may have to be a new tradition for us!!




GREAT evening, the food was great as well...but best of all.....the friendship just can't be beat!!










I did get a lot of knitting while my computer was down.....

7 Scarves

3 pairs of Fuzzy Feet


2 Hats


1 Tam

And a Partridge in a pear tree.......(just kidding)! LOL!!




My typical New Year's Day!!!!


Ahhhh............ready for 2009 and hoping it is a great one for everyone!!
