Photo journaling

Some photos from the last month:

Thanksgiving veggies

Aren't these colorful carrots pretty?  They were from Trader Joe's.

Here's the birthday cake my sister Kimmie and her hubby Travis brought me.  (I still have some in the freezer-it's very yummy!)

Kim and Travis, and Mom and Dad got me this new kitchen faucet.  Travis installed it-I love, love, love it!  No more leaking, no more mineral deposits around the sink, and my sprayer works for the first time in 20 years!  This is case of-you don't know what you don't have until you've got it!  (Do you see how happy Mrs. Spoon is?)

I bought myself an advent calendar (first time) at Aldi for 99 cents.  (I think they're cool.)  But I bought it late, so I had all this chocolate to eat at once.

Puppy nephew Diesel and his Daddy.  

He's growing up!

This is Mr. Puss.  My daughter sent me this pic on his gotcha day-December 26.  She's had him a year.

Another birthday gift-this one from my sister, Jodie.  She knows what I like!

Another birthday gift from Jodie~Hope.

I had some note cards made from some of my photos.  I bundled them up and gave them as gifts.  I am really pleased with how they turned out.  (I'll probably take a pic of them all laid out on the table some time.  Also, I'd like to show the kittie calendar I made for my daughter and the one I made of Roc-but I need to get pics.)

I reused Trader Joe's grocery bags as gift bags.  I thought, why not?  They're even Christmasy.

There are no pretty pictures of Christmas decorations this year, because...there weren't any.  I wasn't feeling it-the house is in disarray and I wouldn't have been able to enjoy them anyhow.  And I'm okay with that.

Also, it's been so gray and dark here-I haven't been taking many pics.  Hopefully that will change as the days get longer-can't wait!

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and I wish you a blessed New Year!

You make the BEST veggie trays, ever. I think it's the crinkle cuts or the LOVE you put into them. Yummy! What wonderful gifts from your family and installing a new faucet, that's awesome! I don't know how you lived without a sprayer! I use mine several times every day!! Love your Trader Joe gift bags full of your lovely rugs!
Diesel is growing by leaps and bounds. Also LOVE your note card. I'm sure they are ALL gorgeous!!!!
