Muffin and I had to stay home on New Years eve when the ball dropped. They went out and had a grand ol'e time. They took the golf cart to the local bar and celebrated with some friends.
Then another day we got left behind and they went to watch a bunch of idiots jump outta airplanes.
It was the national collegiate parachuting championships and was right up the road, so they decided to go check it out. It was a beautiful day and they said they had fun.
The weather here has been chilly (for Florida) and we've had quite a bit of rain. But after the rain, we had some beautiful rainbows in the backyard.
We all had a fabulous Christmas and Mommy got a pasta maker. She's always wanted to learn how to make homemade pasta and found just the person to teach her. Grandma's good friend Carol is doing a stellar job as an instructor bcuz Mommy's pasta is yummy to the 10th degree!
So after only 1 "instruction class" Mommy got Daddy involved and they made pasta together.
Mommy then made her white clam sauce to go on top of the linguini. They just kept saying "yum", "oooh", "ahhhhhh." We got a little of the plain pasta in our bowl.
They also went out to see some beautiful Florida sunsets in town.
Daddy made some drawer dividers for Mommy and also put on her new drawer pulls. That made her really happy!
I got some yogurt licking in.
And to top it all off, Mommy had a very special & heavenly visitor the other day. Now you all know, Mommy has been coming to the FL house with G-Pa Bob for the last 8 years. She has cleaned this house from top to bottom and has cleaned out every closet, every drawer, every corner. The other day she had to clean out the kitchen drawers so Daddy could put the new drawer pulls on. As she was cleaning out the drawer that holds all the greeting cards (yes, Grandma had a greeting card drawer!), right in front of her very eyes she found this....
Mommy has been in that drawer 87 billion times and has been through every card in there over the past 8 years. So this, call it what you will, was truly a sign.
While the Florida weather has not been the greatest recently, they actually got in a few dips in the pool. It's been in the 60's butt the pool is heated so that made it ok.
I, Lily am allergic to the grass here in Florida which is not a good thing. Butt we're learning how to deal with it. My new nick-name is Itchy Scratchy!
We love you all!
Lily Belle & Muffin
