Happy 2010...and Two Poots Christmas Part 2

Happy New Years!! We had a great evening with friends last night in the comfort of our own home! So far 2010 is starting out great!! Today I got to sleep in, shared a hamburger and shake with a dear friend, and did some shopping. Tonight we are heading out to see Leslie and the Lys. I will post pictures of our New Years Eve this weekend. In the meantime, here are some more pictures of our Christmas.

*My mother in laws trees were so pretty decorated in a tropical theme!*


*Poot very shocked that he got a WII*


*Modeling my new moustache...it is so sophisticated*



*Marks lovely bust of JFK*


*This is what happens if you stare into JFK's eyes for too long.*

We made some Snow Ice Cream...Yum!!




When I was little I use to make snow ice cream. I loved using the recipe from the Laura Ingills Wilder Cookbook! This year we just kind of winged it because I didn't have the cookbook. We ended up using Kaluha because we didn't have any vanilla...it turned out very yummy!!

Here are some more Christmas gifts I made for friends and family this year!!



Pretty embroderies from the RVA Online class.


This cute owl was for our nephew Adin. He loved it!!*



*These lunch totes were for my friends Cyndi and Sarah*


*I also got my happy mail from Katja! I loved it!!! I have been wearing my hairbow nonstop!

Well...I am off to enjoy a delicious New Year's Day dinner: black eyed peas, sausage and kraut, and mashed potatoes. Mmmmm... I hope everyone is enjoying their long New Years weekend.

XOXO
Amber
