Sharing Some Cuteness

I can't resist. I have to share this with you all. Isn't he the most adorable grandbaby? I'm not prejudiced either. Well, maybe a little :) Just think, next year I'll have even more adorables to share! Joey's other grandpa (Coach) took this photo during their Thanksgiving visit. Thank you J and Coach for sharing this cuteness! We're excited to see the whole family at Christmas. And it will be here before you know it. I'm staying busy with lots of shopping, eating, baking, eating, sewing, eating, party going, more eating so my blogging and blog reading time is limited. We may well look like one of these Santas next Spring when it's bike riding time again! And no, this is not our house. This is a house up the street from B & N. I'd like to drive by at night to see them all lit up!
I hosted OLBC (our little book club) this past week with a simple soup and appetizer supper. There are only five of us in our club, but we enjoy getting together and sharing our friendship. We don't always read a book, but we try to at least talk about reading! Can you tell that I prefer to stay simple with the table decorations? At least I had an excuse to get the Christmas dinnerware out. The kids gave me these dishes a few years ago when Macy's was still Lazarus here. I love using them!
Someone finally joined the ranks of the 50 year olds! We had to celebrate a little with cake and little gifts. Happy Birthday Mrs. D!
Our official group photo. It probably would have turned out better if I'd had D come from his hiding place in the basement to take this picture instead of trying to balance the camera on the back of the recliner. Note to self - when you are the hostess, you have the right to remove your shoes but just remember to put them back on before group photos or your shortness will be documented for all to see!
Back to work on some holiday baking and sewing projects so this is all for this morning. Hope you all are enjoying your holiday activities too!

Cute photo of you and the friends. We balanced a camera on the back of a dining room chair once. I swear I thought that camera was a gonner for sure. LOL!! Not smart.
That baby pic is just adorable. But then you know that dont you?

What a cutie! You're right -- won't next year be fun for you! Those Santas are really cute. And your book group looks just the right size -- when they get bigger, it gets messy LOL.
