  14. I have you to thank for finding Lorie..How I wish she had many boy things:)

    I only have boys:)

    Thank you!

    I am having a few things printed..Hope they turn out..I remember Elle's bday invite..That's what had me looking:)

    Christmas eve was the highlight with absolutely decadently lovingly prepared food..warm ambiance.. a little guitar.. day was more hectic..
    Some little tummies and big tummies have been upset:(

    I took a few moments by myself..and prayed my little prayers.

    See you soon..

  15. So adorable! I loved how you combined the images just perfectly. I hope your Christmas was special and happy! My Christmas Eve was spent sick and seeing a doctor in the urgent care clinic that afternoon :( Christmas Day, I was able to see the family but barely had a voice to talk to them. Oy! Getting better, though.

  16. Nana 2..just e-mailed you:(

    I ..and J had and still have something similar..My voice is back..but honestly our cold of the decade.
    We know where we got it:)Our own faults..x

  17. Hope you had a great Christmas... I am exhausted!!! I needed a day to recover.

  18. Une merveilleuse image ... J'espère que tout s'est bien passé pour Noël. Je suis sûre que tu as su créer autour de toi cette atmosphère magique dont tu nous offres quelques aperçus tout au long de l'année ... On en redemande encore et encore, des moments comme celui-ci ...
    Je te souhaite une très belle fin d'année.
    Bisous et à très vite

  19. Just dropping by to wish my favourite Nana on the blogosphere a very merry christmas and a happy new year!

  20. You are so kind! Yes, I mentioned that I showed the restaurant last spring but I should probably link it! I will go back and do that. I will take that as a compliment - that we look like sisters - she won't love it though!!!! Yes, I feel the same way, it seems like I just left my 20s or even 30s but the math doesn't add up. (Thank you for the compliment on my husband - he is a nice man - a very nice man and he puts up with me and indulges me in this thing we call blogging!!!) Hope you had a wonderful Christmas and have a wonderful week and a Happy New Year.

  21. Best wishes for 2012!

    I hope you had a lovely Xmas.
