Happy New Year!

Hi everyone! Happy New Year! It’s been a little off here. I didn’t even get it together to send out holiday cards this year. I’m trying to get back into the swing of things, to post regularly but I am feeling out of practice. Is that weird? It’s only been a little over a week but it feels longer. I guess what contributes to this, out of sorts feeling, is that I haven’t been keeping up with my blog reading, I’ve been trying to avoid my website email, and we were actually without internet for a few days. And plus that was a whole different year ago. :)

I wish I had posted regularly, saving those cherished little moments here to read later. But now they are lost, casualties of my crap memory. I’ve been going through the pictures trying to remember those little tiny things but most of them are gone. For example looking at this picture, all I can think of is peppermint chocolates.

That’s right. Peppermint chocolates. This was taken at a friend’s party. Isabelle hadn’t eaten much if any real food. Towards the end of the night she saw me eating a yummy piece of peppermint chocolate. She tried a piece and LOVED it. She kept dragging me back to the room, saying “more”, and eating piece after piece.

Oh and this scarf. I made it ages ago, before Isabelle was even born. I didn’t even realize I had it. Have I ever taken a picture of it? It was one of my early knitting projects, a keyhole scarf. I remember I wanted to do the whole thing in a seed stitch but the going was slow so I changed to a rib stitch. Well anyhoo, one night we went to watch a drive in movie, we all dressed up warm, and I just grabbed a scarf for Isabelle, this scarf. It’s now her favorite accessory. She loves it. At the party, she did not want to take it off for the longest time.

Ok more posts to come and hoping to catch up with everyone soon. Right now I’m missing the movie we rented. :)
