Welcome 2011!

I hope everyone had a wonderful New Year! Ours was nice and quiet, I had 350 kits to put together to ship out for Monday so I was a kit packing machine! My dear sweet hubby made Henry and I our New Year's Eve dinner. It was so good... steaks, sweet potatoes, grilled onion and garlic rosemary bread! 
Then for dessert we had apple pie and ice cream! Yum Yum!! Then I woke up New Years Day and worked out so hard! Which is a great way to start the the New Year. Dan & I have always been real good about working out so starting the new year with some intense exercise was good for both of us (and I needed to work off my much too big slice of apple pie)!
For a little New Years treat I have a small sneak peak for you...
Here is a badge for your blog with my new
"Max & Mollie"
paper line paper line!!

This is my second CHA 2011 Sneak Peek! 

Max & Mollie
Put this badge on your blog and if I or a few of my DT girls see it then
you'll get "Max & Mollie" papers before its in the retail stories! 
Good Luck!

As most of you know Dan bought me a wonder Canon camera for Christmas, I think he might be regretting it now... because I run around the house saying "wait I need a picture of you doing that" or "hold that pose" and his favorite "wait let me get my camera"!! 

So here are a few pictures I've taken around the house...
Bella Blue
Alfred
Sweet Savannah
Dan, Henry and I exchange ornaments every year about a week 
before Christmas and I of course needed a picture of
them! 
This is mine from Dan
(Beavers b/c of my Tree Love paper line.)
Dan's ornament from me...
and Henry's from Dan and I!

Last but not least I snapped these pictures of our big boy "Nico"
sitting on Dan's lap! Yes, he wants to be a lap dog! 
Poor fella is just too big!


Have a wonderful Sunday! -Nikki
