Ending the Year with Family and Friends

The end of our year brought on a visit with family and friends.  What a blessing :)

Cammie and Collin were in town for us to celebrate Cammie's 15th birthday party.  And we found out that one of our friends (he's part of the family, we've known Rene for so long) was in town as well.  Lucky for us, we were able to visit with everyone and even had some time to put up Mardi Gras decorations.  Below are some pictures:

Someone forgot to sign the card :)

After the birthday party, we met up with Rene for supper at Zea's restaurant.  Rene sent us a Christmas present.... a book of "art"  *COUGH*  It was the art of motorcycles!!  But Rene made sure to point out, "Tell Aleta the word "art" is in there."  Uh Huh  :)

See, Greg, I'm not the only one who takes pictures of food!  Below is a picture of the desert we had - Goodness, glad we only ordered one!

Rene said, "I'm NOT taking any cats one."  Trust me, there's an old running joke to this one.  Lol.

When we came home, we had another Christmas gift in the mail.  Aww, my cousin made this for us.  She's so talented!

We're ready for Mardi Gras!

Oh, I love the Mardi Gras decorations! Is that a Mardi Gras TREE? So cool! Wishing you a wonderful 2013. xoxo

Aleta said...

Yes :) It's a Mardi Gras tree. I used it as a Christmas tree for vacation ornaments. Some years I keep the tree out for Mardi Gras ornaments. I'm thinking if I can find ornaments for Halloween and Thanksgiving I'll get really good use out of the tree :)
