And the winner is....

I missed posting my Blog of the Week last Thursday...but I had good reason (well, at least in my mind it was a good one :-))  I was busy getting ready for my daughter and her family to come spend a couple of weeks with us!!  They've been here for a few days and DH and I spent every minute catching up on things....and getting cuddles from the little one!

We braved the icy roads last night (we, and a LOT of other people, are sooooo ready for winter to be over and spring to arrive) to go out and celebrate our grandson's first birthday!  My daughter was concerned that he'd be cranky from being overtired due to jet lag and, well, just being a little one up past his bedtime, but he was a trooper and entertained us all during dinner :-)  I'll post a pic when I upload them from my phone.  I can't believe I forgot my camera, so had to use my phone!

Today is going to be a busy one.  There's an appointment with a photographer for portrait pics, and hair appointments, and picking up a birthday cake...a good kind of busy! 

The newest feline addition to our house no longer is What's His Name!  He is now Machiavelli, Mac for short.  Mac has recovered nicely from having his teeth extracted (not all, he has one left) and had definitely settled into the daily routine.  Didn't take him long at all to expect the three meals a day schedule. :-)  

Off for more grandma cuddles, but first....and the winner of a glass heart is.......beadsnbangles!!!!  Congrats to Kim and thank you to everyone for the suggestions!
