A Year End Smattering

A cold, snowy New Year's Eve today . . . we went to bed last night seeing grass, and woke up to a winter wonderland !! The best part was not having to go to work . . . !

The past week or so has been a bit of a whirlwind, with work, our office party, Christmas, and our new furry friend . . . so hard to believe tomorrow begins a whole new year ! New Year's Day actually serves as our "Christmas: Round 2", since Jack's sister was only able to be home this week, and his family has held off on gifts and all until everyone could be together. No wonder I'm all confused as to what day it is . . . !!!

So, here's a little jumble of pictures from the past week's festivities:

This year's homemade Christmas cards . . .

. . . some homemade honey almond sugar scrub . . .

. . . and rocky road brittle for my co-workers
(this year's nifty gifties !)

Beautiful new curtains for our living room !! We came home Christmas night from my parents to find this scene . . . I love it when elves break into our house and leave presents !!!

And Leo, of course, making himself at home (in the sink and on the dryer !) Still slowly working on the "getting acquainted" thing with the furballs . . . we were off to a shaky start, with growling and hissing from Marty . . . the last few days have been hiss-free, though, so that's encouraging !!!

Happy New Year's Eve !!!
