Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!!!

Hello and Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all my friends and followers!! I have changed my site a bit to celebrate 2010.
I sure hope that you all had a great Christmas. Were you all nice or naughty? I must have been naughty because Santa missed my house again this year. :(
We did have a great time at Tina and Dades again this year. The kids got great gifts and had a good time. The dinner was prime rib and delicious as always. Here is a few photos that I took there.

The Holidays are here!!

This year has flown by so fast, here it is almost Thanksgiving and then Christmas.
Thanksgiving is going to be quiet here as hubby works most of the holidays. Hubby has already put up a few christmas lights with lots more to come.
This year I have followed my own tradition and made a couple of handmade ornaments for our tree.
I just love making handmade ornaments and giving some out to my girls. I hope that long after I'm gone they will have good memories everytime they decorate their trees.

Here are the only 2 ornaments that I've made so far. These are for my tree.

A Good Visit

It had been a while since I had seen Tina and hubby and kids so they came over to visit me yesterday. Mia Bella really enjoyed the visit as I did. this visit our new puppy came out of hiding and as you can see both dogs loved Mia Bella and her them. soo cute!! Coley had a good visit as well but he was inclined to butt heads with the dogs. They have a massive dog and he is used to his big o dog and running and roughhousing with it. My dogs like to play but not quite the Coley way. I think Coley wore his Mommy out trying to keep him from squishing the dogs. lo.

Disneyland 2009

local Fashion Show

My daughter and her hubby and kids came to visit me the other day so I had the chance to give Mia Bella the pink tutu I had made for her. She has started taking ballet class so I thought she'd love a tutu.
Well she totally and I mean totally ignored the tutu. Coley on the other hand, had fun with it.

Then a day or so later I got a call from Tina. She just finished up a photo shoot with Mia Bella and her tutu. Tina said Mia Bella had the tutu on for days!!! Check out the model. She is having a total ball.

You surely can't tell by the photos but Mia Bella is very shy, even here she is shy. But boy does she get bold when the camera is on her. Love her!! ANd Coley, he isn't shy at all and he is soooo cute. Love him!!!

Tweaking the meds and Mia Bella and Coley

So here I am, not lost in the woods at all, just wandering around trying to find a good spot to stop and picnic. hahahhaah
Went to the new doc, got all my meds tweaked and upped and now am waiting to see if this works for me or not.
Of course with a new doc comes lots more tests to see where the body is at. I've got a fasting blood test coming up and a mamogram and paptest, which I know is way over due. Also have physical therapy scheduled for my shoulder and diabetes group and oh yeah xrays of my replaced knee. It's not working right any more either. Also got new meds for pain control. HOpe I find a level that works ok for me.
For right now I've not really done anything needle wise except a cloth for a group I'm in. Just making a few silver pendants and charms to sell in my etsy shop. I sold 2 items last week. One in etsy and one in my artfire shop. And am still ordering materials for my pendants even tho I'm not making the $$ to pay for it. Just like yarn. Always wanting more even thou I have a boat load of it. lol
Hubby and 2 gkids outside in pool, finally got it filled up and the floater in and all is well with them.
I did finally get up to see my grandaughter and gson yesterday. Mia's birthday was July 2 and I gave her gifts to her yesterday , almost 3 weeks later. I swear I better get feeling better so I can start taking myself places. shoot.
