Last week in Pictures!

Just wanted to stop by and post some pictures of the last week!  It's been busy between working weird hours, baking/cooking, knitting and visiting with my son.  He was pretty busy studying most of the time though :(  I have to admit, I do love our new kitchen/breakfast nook/living room set up.  We can all do our own thing and still be in the same room.

Lights in the square, Downtown Prescott

Small, but just starting my nutcracker collection.

I try to get one a year during a sale.  This year was the red one on the left with the pincushion for a hat.  It's pretty cool as it has knitting in the bag and sewing stuff.

Like I said....studying for his Coast Guard boards in 2 weeks....it was good for him to have a break, but he's glad to be on his way back for a little quieter study time ;)

Moochie gave off a loud "mmmm!!!!" when I went past your food pictures--I have to agree! Looks like a fun time was had by all!

What a great family picture!

Now I have to say that your Pork Pie actually looks better than what my mother made. Hers just had the meat in it and just a hint of some spices. Yours looks like it has some onions and such, too? Sadly, my mom's family recipe was still as nasty as I remembered it :-( How did yours taste?

Good luck to your son on his exams!

Beautiful pictures! I love the lights, and all your food looks amazing. We're partial to creme brulee around here, but I forgot to get a new canister for my little blow torch thingie... maybe next year.
