Merry "Post" Christmas!!

I hope you all had as wonderful a Christmas as I did! I always enjoy Christmas (well, last year wasn't so good) but this Christmas was just spectacular for our family. It just felt like what Christmas was supposed to be...warm, loving, relaxing and a time for being thankful for the love that surrounds you. We started Christmas Eve with our pierogi's and fish dinner and then did our presents. DD's boyfriend was here and got to experience out lunacy for the first time. He really has become such a wonderful addition to our family. The "kids" did the Christmas Pickle which he had never heard of and my kids showed him no mercy. WE never did find it and I thought I had remembered exactly where I had hidden it but they got their 'pickle presents' anyway!

Here are my 'kids' trying to find the Christmas Pickle...
I love how excited they get even though they are no longer 'kids'!

And, this is what my DD subjected our furbabies to...
This is my DD and her guy with
'Santa' aka Bogie, 'Rudolph' aka Pepe, and 'Mrs. Claus' aka Bonnie!

Then on Christmas Day we had all our family for our traditional prime rib dinner although this year I plum forgot the yorkshire pudding along with the rolls! But, no one really missed them as we had so much else to eat. Then it was just relaxing and gabbing, reminiscing and remembering those that were no longer physically around our table. It was the first Christmas in a long time that I was sad to call it a night and see everyone leave. Truly a wonderful holiday!

For New Years we are making our way to the cabin and will be leaving tomorrow and DH wants to extend it to a week instead of a few days. Going to try to get a good dose of relaxation in before kicking into high gear after the festivities become a memory and we have to get back to reality! I have sent out all the passwords for those that have joined so far. Memberships are slowing down a bit but if you do join between now and January 4th, I will not be answering you until I get back, okay?

We don't really do much for New Year's Eve...just make dinner and usually play cards. Someone usually has to remind us when it is midnight! Such party animals! It is on my Bucket List to go to New York City some year for New Years but I want to be in a hotel room overlooking Time's Square and NOT in that chaos below!
Since I will not be here for the 1st, I am posting the first January Kit tonight. Now this is a January Kit even though it is posted in December and only the Jan/Feb/March password will work. It is another snow kit but it has a neat marker to remember how much snow you had! I hope you enjoy!

Here is Frosty Feets of Snow!

Here's a preview of the Snow Marker...

Members can Download...HERE

Remember... this is a January kit!

Just posting it early since I will not be around for awhile! December passwords will not work.

And, the Sampler for non-members...

Sampler download is...HERE

I wish you all a Wonderful, Happy, Healthy and Prosperous New Year!
Okay maybe prosperous is too much to wish for with this economy but how about
we are all able to at least make ends meet?
Happy New Year!!!!

So glad your Christmas was soooo good! Mine was too but in the other direction. No one got out of their jammies and we just lounged around-it was sooooo relaxing and sometimes that is good. I hope you have a very SAFE and HAPPY NEW YEAR! Please be careful on the roads, we all want you back safe and sound-we love ya! May this coming year be the best one of your life so far, with only better coming each new year!!!!

Love and hugs to ya,
