Last Week of Dec 2011...FUN!

Had a great time celebrating Christmas on the Eve with my parents and sibs.

Christmas morning drove four hours back north to in-law's....lovely day!
Then the day after Christmas we did it all over again, just the four of and was great!

Several days later took the girl to her biometrics appt. She is applying to extend her visa to the UK for two more years. Then we went walking around Old Town Alexandria...where they hang their trees!
When we returned home there was a package on the came all the way from Scotland!

Dear sweet Lynz made me an awesome yellow and grey pillow...with a pony button!! She included this amazing calendar of is already hanging above my computer...waiting for tomorrow...the first day of 2012! Thanks bunches Pal...I heart it!:)

The last thing I managed to do this year is finish The Sketchbook Challenge. I'm happy to report that I submitted something all twelve months and I'm excited that they are doing it again in 2012!

Speaking of 2012....

...this is what we are going to indulge in on the first day of the new from my brother. But for the last day of the year it's lasagna and Haagen Daz...Cherry Garcia and Half Baked Chocolate ice I think we'll drink that little bottle of Processo!!
