Holy Cow!!! Where has the year gone!?!?!?!?! HAPPY 2010 xxx

So I hope you have all had a great last few months to 2009, I have been so tired and busy that blogging took a back seat but I really missed it, so here I am back blogging with every intention of making a resolute effort to be a much better blogger this year.

The first photo here represents my neighbours having a gorgeous litter of boxer puppies, such cuties. I am so lucky, I have such wonderful neighbours.

This next lot of pictures are from my first visit to the German market in Edinburgh, this is our obligatory US shot. We went to meet up with My brothers Family and 4 of our Friends from London.
Me with Steph
Me, Enjoy a delicious alcoholic hot chocolate shot, one of a few yummy alcohol treats I had that day, hence the big grin.

Here are my friends Steph and Alex and Neil and Caroline, it was so good to see them, here they are preparing to do a quick happy xmas song video for my mum lol.

Alex and Steve with Ben before they got on the Merry-go-round, I love this picture, it is my current screen saver.

We made a return visit to the German Market the following week, with my mum and 2 of our Nephews, Robbie and Kristofer. What a great fun day.

This was the boys fav. attraction of the day, the giant helter skelter.
Vicki squished in the cups with the boys.
My mum doing the baby bird thing with the best waffle ever lol, the boys loved it.
2 happy sleepy boys waiting for their mum.
No creativity, accept our xmas crop which was a great time, loved it, so much.

I have to say a big thanks to mum for getting me these 2 gorgeous Basicgrey collection packs YUMMY!

Nook and Pantry
Most of the rest of my time was filled with work, travel, shopping, wrapping and decorating.

Now we reach Christmas, here is Vicki's first Christmas cake, it was soooo delicious.
This gorgeous bouquet arrived from our neighbour Fred, bless him xx

This is Buckerooodolph, so funny lol
we also played Jenga on Christmas day, I have not laughed so much in a long time.

Smudge and Wanda, in love LOL!

Vic and I spent xmas at home with her mum Ina, such a nice Xmas day.

Boxing day we had Vic's family over, her sister, partners and nephews and Vicki's friend Angela and her daughter Lacie. What a brilliant day, everyone seemed to enjoy themselves.

Vic, her mum and her sisters
Gran Ina and the 5 Nephews, what a great Christmas image.
At the end of the party, we set of a Wish lantern, we all made wishes on it and had a few tears and hugs, I feel really lucky to be a part of a very welcoming and funny family.

One last thing, a friendship that is very important to me and has been neglected is back as strong as ever and I am so happy about it, love you Katy xxx

I hope you all had a Fantastic Christmas and you all have a very Happy New Year.
