New Year's Day...

Alex and I had a yummy dinner at P.F.'s last night. We stuffed ourselves...well, I stuffed myself, Alex had more self control than me. We ordered a couple of appetizers (pan-fried veggie dumplings and cripsy green beans) and then the manager sent out lettuce wraps, which was nice but we couldn't eat everything. I couldn't even touch my entree, I just had the waitress box it up to bring home. We brought home a lot of leftovers...Diesel enjoyed his doggy bag of wonton soup and fried rice...that dog is spoiled rotten. He ate like a king while I was at my parents. Alex went to Riverfront both nights that I was gone, so Dies had steak while Mommy was away. He tends to turn his nose up at his real dog food, if he eats like that for too long. Can't say that I blame him. :)

After dinner, we came home, watched the ball drop, and then went to bed! We slept in, until almost 10 this a.m. That was nice and very unusual for my hubby. He has been working a lot of hours this week, so he was exhausted.





I stopped by Old Mill Bread, yesterday afternoon, to order cinnamon rolls for this morning. They were covered in cream cheese icing and oh so delicious.


I need to be packing up Christmas, but haven't. I've been playing around on scrapblog most of the morning, which is why I've had several different blog headers in only a matter of a few hours. I keep changing my mind. Don't be surprised if it's different, the next time you stop by. :)

Here is a pic of my Christmas card garland that I will be taking down, today. I love looking at all of the picture cards that have come in over the holiday. Can I just say, that I'm friends with some extremely good-looking people!


Love to all,
Jill
