I've been very quiet in blog-land lately. Sometimes "real" life gets in the way... Now that Christmas has come and gone and we are looking forward to the new year, I hope to be more consistent...
Santa was very good to my family this year! ;-)
A wonderful dinner at my parents' with most of our family... My daughter commented to me on the way home, "I really like our family. We should see them more often." Out of the mouths of babes... (this one happens to be 14.)
Anyway... there were lots of minis amongst my Christmas gifts and I am so grateful and happy! They included a darling garden furniture set with two mixed floral topiaries, a room box for Abigail built by my hubby himself, a subscription to "Miniatures Collector" , an Amazon gift card which will undoubtedly be spent on minis, and a gift certificate for a minis company whose catalog I've been poring over almost every night before bed. I am a lucky girl!
Our oldest son (who is 20) had a mini amongst his gifts too! A 7-week-old chihuahua puppy he has named Sox (as in the Boston Red Sox)... We are cat people here (truth be told) but we are all smitten with this latest tiny addition to our family--perhaps my mom most of all. She spent a lot of time after Christmas dinner with Sox sleeping snugly in her arms wrapped in his fleece blanket.
Back to painting Abigail's new room. I suppose I should feed the teenagers too...
I hope you all had a wonderful holiday with your loved ones. Blessings and best wishes!
