Cooking Baking - last year I brought pre-made aporns and decorated them. Since I am secretly obsessed with aprons :), I decided to sew aprons for the girls. The only bad part was that I bought the goods in summer (all but purple) and didn't start the project till 2 wks before (during the crazy time mentioned in the last few posts). So needless to say there were some late nights and emergency calls to my mother (and some assistance from her). I did about 98% myself; but the last part required a hand sewn finishing stitch (blind) that I had no idea how to do (thankfully Mom was happy to help)! This year there were 3 of us and we picked our recipes a little more sanely this year. We each chose to 2 recipes (and made sure not to do to many cookie cutter since that took forever last year). Enough talking here are pictures of the festivities..

The second big happening was Melissa visiting. She drove from FL xmas night Our time was spent mostly just hanging out and catching up.. A few things we did do - went to our favorite cactus shop - Spicewood Spines (I LOVE LOVE that place), learned to knit from my mother, baked some bread, and in general relaxed. Here are a few pictures..
