We've been on holiday....for about two weeks. It's been wonderful, as we've spent time with family and friends enjoying the down time. This year John took off the week between Christmas and New Year's and our great friends the Robbs came to visit.

Here are some snippets of what we've been busy with:

::holiday baking (cinnamon rolls for Christmas morning) ::unwrapping presents::tormenting the dog with holiday apparel (isn't she cute?)::enjoying family (Maggie taught my mom how to play the x-box...you never heard such laughter!)::waking up to surprise snowfalls:: enjoying friends ::creating and crafting::male bonding
::sewing
:: starting the new year off quite sweetly (thanks Uncle Mark!) :: saying goodbye to a wonderful vacation and great time with friendsI'll be back next week with some small changes that we'll be starting for this new year! Hope you've been enjoying all the little moments in your days! Happy New Year friends!

It's nice to be back in touch, Lisa. Looks like you had a fabulous family Christmas too! Oh, could Maggie teach me x box too? (first of all, what is it? lol!) Wondering what you were sewing too!

Sounds like a great time. My dh also took this time off as vacation. Unfortunately, we were not able to enjoy our time as we lost his brother on the 21st in a work accident. It has been a difficult time.

Looks like you're all having such fun! And that puppers, looks a little like our beloved Bud -- cute!
Have to say I've got a little donut envy here too -- our Dunkin Donuts shop closed about a year ago ;-(.
