apple pots

 Randomly found these apple pots on Amazon!  Aren't they the cutest?!  :D
Comes in red...
... and in green!

They hold 3-quarts and are cast iron with easy-clean porcelain enamel surface.  They seem like they'd be too pretty to use.  :)

The baby we threw this baby shower for in October made her appearance on New Year's Eve!  They went home like after 1.5-2 days so we visited them at home Monday evening.  I got to hold her for awhile and she is so precious!  I think she is the newest baby I've ever held!  She was just, I think... 2.5 days old!  She was kind of an extra small baby and had the cutest little fingernails and fingers and... cutest everything.  :oP  It was fun that though she was "sleeping" she moved around a lot and sighed and moved her hands around her face a lot.  :)  Babies are especially awesomely cute when you just hold them and then give them back when they're pooping/farting/barfing.  :D

Those nine months she was incubating went by so quickly!  When I was in elementary school (and basically through high school), the school year would go by SO. SLOWLY.  Now babies are born in a blink of an eye and time flies by so much quicker.  I must be getting old.  :oT

Happy New Year!

I suppose one of my resolutions should be to blog.  Not to blog more... just to blog.  :oP  It's been a busy holiday season and I hope to get back to blogging, and like my fall resolution, to use more words!  (Than just pictures.)

We recently returned from a lovely trip to California to visit my family for Christmas.

Christmas afternoon!  (Since there was church in the morning.)

It's time to catch up on CSI and to unpack my suitcase.  I have trouble unpacking quickly.  Does anyone else have this problem?
