Happy New Year's Eve!
We had such a nice visit with my sister, Janet, her honey, Dennis, my niece, Jenn and our great niece, Kaela! We all had a wonderful dinner on Sunday and Kaela opened her gifts from us. Jenn and the kids (Chris, Kristen and Rob) all went out Sat. night while Nana (my sister) and I baby sat. Sunday we headed to Target for the sales and the Christmas store for bubble lights for my sister and niece and then Janet and Dennis headed back to Ft. Myers. Jenn and Kaela stayed another night. We made s'mores in the fire pit on the lower lawn and Rob joined us. He and Kaela played several rounds of some game or another and we all called it a night.
Yesterday, E and I took down some of the holiday array and I've been doing laundry. I leave on Jan. 2 for a crop in Ruskin and it will be good to see a bunch of the Hilltop gals and maybe even get some pages done! I picked up a few new papers and some other goodies at Ruban Rouge's big end of the year sale. Even Kristen found a few things there to help her organize her office. Gene helped Chris hang a curtain rod for the kids' new living room drapes while Kristen and I shopped at RR and JoAnne's.
I may even get some scrapping done today amongst the dismantling of the holiday stuff. Wish me luck. Off to change the tunes on here! And have a safe and good New Year's Eve...see you next year!
