A New Year Soon

We had a very nice Christmas,
and I hope you did too!

I got lots of sweet gifts from my family.  Jess knows I'm a Barbie lover, and got me the World's Smallest Barbie, it's adorable.


 

 
 
Nel made the most thoughtful gift.  She asked me a few questions about past Christmas', and then she put the questions and answers inside a glass ornament and attached it with ribbon.  I thought it was so creative.

 
Nel made my mom's famous enchiladas, and we also had a baked ham with a glaze.  It was one of the best hams I've had.  And a salad on the side.


 
I found this dress for the baby.  I thought it was the cutest thing I've ever seen.  She will remind me of a  "red rose alley"  baby when she wears it haha.

 
We drove around a neighborhood in my town that has a big display of lights.  It was magical.
 
And a most precious gift was baby Francesca.  She is a smiley baby, and it truly warms my heart.
i.am.in.love.


 
We are starting a new year soon, and I hope it's a good one for you and me.

What a great idea, to collect memories of Christmases past and put them into a clear orb.....because for me, Christmas is about the memories and making new ones, no matter how quiet the celebration is. Ours was very quiet, but I love it that way.

Francesca is absolutely PERFECT!!!! Oh Sheri, bless you all in 2018!

I cannot wait to see a photo of Francesca in her baby girl dress. She's so PRETTY! Honestly, she definitely looks like a little girl and not just like an "You're-cute-but-I-can't-tell-what-you-are" baby! What a smile! You are going to LOVE grannying!

That ornament is such a clever idea. I must remember that one for next year!

Sheri, I love the gifts given to you with great thought. Oh that sweet baby rose. I know what you mean about being in love. How could you not be? LOL. I cuddled and sniffed on Leo, our newest little family member . :):) Hope when your beautiful Francesca wears her pretty rose dress that you get a photo. Blessings to all of you and all your loved ones for a great new year of health and happiness. Love you dear friend, xoxo, Susie

This was a fun post....let me tell you. You will be in love for the rest of your days, and will wonder how you made it BF (Before Francesca.) She does look like a happy baby and I am always so glad to see someone else experience being a grandma.
