Ha! My husband just noticed the blog...and lack of posts.
He called me a slacker.
Sorry friends. I just did not have a spare moment to sit down and write.
I cooked so much, I never want to cook again.
Mostly because I cooked alone and everybody else was elsewhere.
I wanted to be with them. Not alone in the kitchen.
Somehow this needs to change in the future.
I like to make my favorite things for my favorite people but when it takes me away from them...for hours and hours.
Here are some pictures I took while I was away from the blog.
I will not be posting many pictures to Facebook anymore so ya gotta stop by here to see what I'm up to.
groups of booshays :o)
For Christmas I got a Lensbaby Composer. It makes the edges blurry.
I love it.
And it made this look like an action shot.
I made the girls lay down in the front yard before they went sledding :o)
Cindy came to dinner on Saturday. It was so wonderful to be together.
I made a tenderloin and it was WAY too rare.
Emma bought me Ina Garten's Foolproof cookbook for Christmas, it has a recipe for tenderloin, I will be trying that next time. Yikes.
Cindy and her Patrick.
So happy together.
Cindy brought a little of mom along with her.
On Christmas we tried to see Les Miz. It was sold out until 3:20 so we stopped at Starbucks....
and took pictures.
We all liked the movie very much. It's a serious musical.
Much of the background is left out of the story. But this is a movie of the musical.
Not a movie of the book.
Have you seen a movie of Les Miz (the book) that you really love?
Nice light at that Starbucks :o)
This was my nostalgic contribution.
We made this ever year for our New Years Eve gathering.
It was neighbors and friends.
Our gathering is family.
I happen to like this appetizer of bologna and cream cheese.
This is the best of the family picture bunch. Not so good.
I edited off my butt on purpose...but what am I going to do with the Patricks?
I've been knitting a ruffly scarf.
I've driven to Iowa.
I've enjoyed my busy Christmas with my family.
I'm on top of the world :o)
