So long 2010

As 2010 is coming to a close,  I wanted to remember some things that happened in my life this past year.  Some things I would rather forget.....but some, I am happy to remember.  Here are some of them. 
 
 In January, I got over my fear of yeast and made homemade cinnamon rolls from the Pioneer Woman Cookbook.  Oh were these good. 


 In February, we got to try our our new snow blower.....a lot. 

 In March we took a trip to Cincinnati to see some very dear friends of ours.  The big kids and the little one had so much fun in the pool together. 

 

 In April, we went home to Illinois and saw my daddy transform himself into the Easter Bunny once again.  Doesn't he look so good in pink? 

 

 In May we celebrated Mother's Day with my girls.  We had a wonderful day of church, McDonald's and a beautiful butterfly bush for my garden.


 Last day of middle school for my girl in June.  She had just sang the National Anthem with these girls and there was so much excitement in the air.  These girls are some of her favorites.


 This one was a tough one....July brought my daughters permit and driving school!  She really does a good job but it is still hard for the mama!

 August was a good month for sewing pretty things.  I started two quilts and made several other gifts for friends and myself.  I also began using my new sewing machine which was very good. 

 

 September took us to the beach one more time before summer was over.  I really miss that warm sand and lovely sound of the waves hitting the shore.


 October brought more fun pictures of my kitty.  He loves to look out the screen door in my kitchen and watch what is going on outside.  The ladybugs on the screen door would taunt him.  I had many laughs watching him try to get them....with no luck.

  
 November my daughter participated in the schools Cabaret.  It was a fantastic evening of watching the talent the kids have at her high school.  The voices.....my....were they good.

 
 And December brought us to the Christmas tree farm to pick out just the right one.  We found her.  And had a fun time together as a family to boot.

So long 2010....Hello 2011.....wonder what it will have in store for me?  I am praying for God's Abundant Blessings, His Sweet Grace and His Perfect Will on my life and yours.  Happy New Year friends!

Happy New Year! Is your cat a Maine Coon kitty? Because he looks sort of like our Clyde. Not in color, but in coat and tail.
