Random Tuesday....Sated; Sexy and just a wee bit Tipsy!!

Christmas has come and gone and I hope you all had a wonderful celebration.  I sure did!!  It was so nice being literally surrounded by family and friends!!  Small house filled with 10 people...9 of whom spent three days here!!  Ack!!  It was fun though!!  Here's a sample...

The weather outside was frightful....

But inside was filled with excitement and lots of coffee and sweet rolls!!

Then came the feast!!!

Plenty of food and we even had a Turducken!!  A turkey, stuffed with a chicken, stuffed with a duck!!  It was tasty but not enough duck!!  And the stuffing they (Cajun Kitchen) made was nasty!!  Ha!  Glad I made regular stuffing!!

Finally sated....the kids did the clean up with minimal of arguing!  Ha!!  Then was all sat down and digested!!  Here are some pics of the grandkids...




Georgia and Lee Jr.

My son Lee and Cassie

Lee, Lisa and Cassie

Fun times!  Then we all went to the Cinema!  We saw Mission Impossible!!!  What an action packed film.  Tom Cruise hasn't lost his touch!! 

Tom Cruise climbing outside the tallest building in the world was something else!! 

The next day, they all braved the snow drifts and went home!  We collapsed!!  Ha!!

Then we come to New Year's Eve!!  Got dressed to the nines and went to dinner with friends!!

Buck and Cheri

Dr. John and myself

Kathy and Mike

We went to a wonderful Steakhouse...Paul's Monterey Inn in Albuquerque!  Steak and shrimp...yummy!  Oh and a couple of Martini's!!  Ha!!  Woot!  Happy New Year!!

2012???  OOOOOMMMMMGGGGGGG!!  How did that happen!!??  So it is that time!  Time to organize the paperwork and make resolutions!!  I am from the "One Word Resolution" camp!!  Ha!  Last year my word was "Achieve"!!  And boy did I!  Had a great year...sold some large paintings and many many baby dolls!!  But I also started some projects and I still want to continue to lose weight.  50 lbs to be exact! word this year is "Complete"!!  I want to complete those things that I have started!!  And so it begins..,.2012...I am here...ready to rumble!!

I am changing some things up on my blog as well.  A new look is coming!  And a giveaway!  So stay tuned!!

Well, it is Random Tuesday and it is time to get it on!!  Your Random that is!  Visit Stacy of Stacy Uncorked and see what other Randomizations are occurring!!  I just realized that I do a lot of "!" and "?".  Just saying....
Also pay a visit to Keely of The UnMom as we patiently wait her return to Random Tuesday!!

Have a blessed and magical day.
Hugging you

My idea of a good time with my family is a max 4 hr visit, then everybody goes separate ways. :) Whew. You had a marathon going there. I know you didn't indulge in those sweet potatoes with the marshmallow topping, huh? As for the turducken stuffing? I agree. I bought one, once. Never again. Happy New Year to you. I know you will COMPLETE this year in SueAnn style! Hugs.

Hi SueAnn,

With 10 house guests and ALL THOSE PRESENTS I'm not sure how you all fit in the house but it sure looks like one and all had a great time! I could see the love jumping out of your photos.

"Complete" is a good resolution and one I should focus on as well. Let's do it together!

Have a great, happy and healthy 2012!
