Happy New Year!

Happy New Year to those in blogland.  It seems like time goes so very quickly and other things take priority over blogging.

2011 ended with a bit of a flop in that I had a pretty awful flu through Christmas and the holidays and wasn't feeling too good.  Thankfully I'm on the mend now with just a residual cough.  My 82-year-old Dad has the flu now, though, so hopefully he will be able to fend it off - I'll be keeping a close eye on him.

We did have a wonderful Christmas dinner on Christmas day at my sister, Karen and her hubby Allen's house.  It was really wonderful to enjoy Christmas dinner with family even though I was feeling under the weather.  A very special time, for sure.  Karen, your house looked beautiful and the dinner was AWESOME!  Thank you for having all of us and I'm sorry that it's so much work and stress for the hostess.

Here's hoping that 2012 is kind to everyone. It's like a clean slate and a fresh start, isn't it? 

I'm off tonight to join one of my "other" daughters (Connie's daughter, Tianna) in picking out her wedding dress for an upcoming August 2012 wedding!!  How exciting!!!
