Well, are YOU puttering around your house now that the festivities have died down a bit? I am! Before the big day, I had fun at Kelli's house. I put a bandana on Millie's head. Doesn't she look cute?
Sweet Lizzy received a Jelly Cat duck on Christmas eve. Her little hat was a gift from her Auntie Kelli. Is three months old the BEST age, or what? She's so lovely!
Something I found in the Barbie piles at Kelli's house, the fairy godmother! I need one. I am heading to the Disney Store soon!
I bought myself a bird poem book before Christmas. Isn't it pretty? Poems and birds = great combo!
Jenny suggested we decorate cookies after Christmas eve supper. Great idea! Miss Bug is looking like a Christmas girl, isn't she?
Ugh. Limited sugar for this granny from this point on. Apples, oranges, and grapefruit are just the ticket!
I was waiting for my iPod to charge before getting on the treadmill (SO MUCH WORK, that treadmill!) so I had a small ironing fest! I pulled out all the "fun to iron" things from my overflowing basket. Don't you love my peach face? It was a gift from my amazing friend Jody! The other linens were embroidered by my grannies. The crochet came from my mother-in-law's stash years ago.
My mother-in-law also had a lovely collection of hankies! Isn't this one pretty? It's big. Well, anyway . . . now a dent has been made in the ironing and I DID get on the treadmill (thud, thud, thud). I took a long deep nap and watched a movie.
Oh by the way, the fruit cake was a HUGE flop. It tasted weird and I remembered that I don't like fruit cake. Hmmmmm. I made a chocolate cake that I like a little TOO much and I did not make the pie because the sweets kept piling up and we just can't manage all of it. We used to be able to, but not any more. We have leftovers galore in the refrigerator.
I wanted to check in and say hello. I have a lot of photos to take. My gift books are glorious. I now have a bread machine! Woo hoo! I have never had one before, so I have a lot of reading to do (and thinking) before I pull it out of the box.
Did I mention that I LOVE being home?
Thanks for popping by!
