Thought you lost me?

Oh my goodness, it has taken me forever to get on the computer these last 3 weeks. I have been without a camera because I have misplaced it somewhere. Thanks to Elizabeth I was able to borrow some pics off of her.

I hope everyone had a beautiful Christmas and New Year. It was a cozy one for us. The 10 days Benjamin was here felt like half a week. We had so much fun playing games, cooking and eating! Christmas Eve was delightful. We had Jodi and BJ over as well as our next door neighbor Pamela. Jon made delicious Chicken Farfalle copied from the Cheese Cake Factory. It was superb.
Christmas morning Benjamin and Jon woke up at 6 and wanted to open presents. So we had fun enjoying Christmas while it was still dark. The baby woke up for about 45 minutes but wanted to go back to bed. He gets his morning sleepies from mommy.

These last few days Jon and I have been rearranging the living room. We bought a new book case and we are also attempting to make new curtains for the windows. More pics to come on that project. I have also been trying to organize the basement and the closets. That is going rather slowly I'm afraid.

I have been loving the Christmas clearance all over town. I have bought a lot of candles that are 75 percent off as well as CHOCOLATE!!! Elizabeth and I are enjoying our very well stocked chocolate larder right now.

Jon has a new schedual this year. He works four 10 hour days and gets three days off. So we see him little through out the week but get a whole extra day with him on Wednesday. We just started watching Bleak House by BBC which is very good so far. That will keep us company these cold winter evenings while Jon is still at work.

My parents are planing on visiting us when Elizabeth has the baby. I am getting very excited about this. My dad has never been out here so I hope he can make it :)

I hope you had a wonderful Christmas and New Years!
God Bless

What a magical time you have been having! The pictures of the cats made me laugh so hard Mario came to ask me what was up =) As for getting the areas of your house organized I would suggest going to Thrifty Decor Chick beacuse she has an "open" blog list of all these other redos from other people and even if you don't want to paint and such, I found it very inspiring to spurs up my home. Good Luck!

Love the pictures! We just got about 4 inches of snow here today in southern Indiana. It's beautiful to look at, but I don't want to drive in it!

Bleak house is one of my favorite Dickens books. The BBC version is quite good, but of course the book is MUCH better. It explains a lot of things that the movie does not. Sorry about the dropped calls... give me a ring when you get a chance!

oh my goodness! I bought Bleak House for Luke for his birthday and we just finished watching it! we love curling up with hot tea or coffee, warm, snuggly blankets and watching BBC classics! you will LOVE Bleak house. now we are on to Little Dorritt and Our Mutual Friend. do you have any others that you would recommend?! oh, and I love the 'new look' for your blog! so chic!
