Silence is not always so golden…

Or is it?  Sorry my dandy friends for being so MIA! I cannot believe that I’ve been so unusually quiet these last few weeks.  Usually I’m quite the talker.  😉  Or maybe you haven’t minded my quietness???  That’s okay, too.  At any rate I’ve missed checking in with all of you.  It was a very busy end to 2012 around here as I’m sure it was in all of your own lives.

They were definitely on his nice list!

 We visited family and Santa made a stop there:



Ruby learned how to do some new things at our house…



And at my grandparents house:



Oh and the little miss turned 1!


Stay tuned for the posting on that very dandy birthday party…
