Happy New Year!



Happy New Year! I'm a bit late, I know... Do you like the pic of one of our kitties? Caressa thought she would dress him up in a tutu. I'm not sure he liked it but no clawing, hissing or biting took place, so I guess it was alright!

Whoah Sue! that is some kind of list. I had a to do list on my blog as well, but no where near as long as yours. Glad to hear your hubby will be helping out with some of those projects.
Sounds like cleaning out and decluttering is on everyones list. We can all do without it, right?
What a sweet surprise for you on Christmas to open a package of handmade mitts and hat from your daughter for you! She obviously has a loving and caring heart like her mama. : )
