New Year's Eve at the Pulaski's

What a way to ring in the New Year. Katy and Cindy made some delicious food and we played a very close game of spades. After Trudy hit the sack for the night it was to break out Quelf.

Cindy had to wink and touch her forehead every time she asked a question
Andrea had to leave her hand in a bowl of water for an entire round
I had to place my feet two feet apart, place my knees together and hands on my back while shouting "I refuse to wear that dress!" As much as I hate dresses that sounds like something normal for me to say. :)
Andrea doing the chicken dance
Andrea's friend Morgan who joined Brandon in picture taking during the first game
Forget what this was. Something embarrassing!
Had to keep my hands on my head unless it was my turn.
Cindy had to draw a few shapes and lines then Andee had until her next turn to make a picture out of it
Andrea and Aran ballroom no music
At the stroke of midnight we toasted with sparkling cider then it was time to head home. Thank you Lord for your protection during a dark, rainy 50-minute drive home on New Year's Eve!

Sitting Up

Trudy can sit unsupported for a few minutes as long as she is leaning waaaay forward.

Getting ready to chomp down on her toes. Oh to be this limber!

A Gervens Afterchristmas

While we wish Dave and Linda could have stayed longer, we had an enjoyable afternoon and evening with them.

Trudy opening her gift from Aunt Kristie

Mom's gift of crochet labels

Trudy starting in on her gifts

Dad's was happy about his tool
My gifts Mom had to help me open and show for the camera since T was being fussy

Some hot chocolate for Mom

And a photo of her son and granddaughter
Birch beer! Dave got a ton of it! It took several trips to haul it in from their car

We got Mom and Dad an actual page from a 1625 King James Bible
Dad was more jazzed about it than Mom as expected. :)
Another gun...yea.
You'll shoot your eye out!
Thanks for stopping by to see us and for the wonderful gifts, Mom and Dad. We really enjoyed spending time with ya'll.

Crochet Couture

Dave's parents paid us a visit this week and my mother-in-law brought her latest baby creations for Sweet T. The Eeyore hat she made without a pattern. Thanks for noticing me!

She had patterns for the frog and duck bibs. How cute are they?

Snowed In!

We spent the night Saturday at Mom and Dad's house waiting until late Sunday afternoon to head home.

Dave showing me how to pack a tight snowball
Yeah I throw like a girl, but it's still a cool pic

I'm Dreaming of a White Christmas and actually got one!

Not only was this Trudy's first Christmas but my first white one! We enjoyed playing in it a tiny bit on Christmas morning, but it was a little wet for Trudy's liking.

Our neighbor's house looked so picturesque that we took a photo of in instead of our neighborhood eyesore. ;)
Time for presents! Dave got me an ereader, a Brighton charm, and a Fossil wallet
Dave got some stocking stuffers and $$$ from me.
We used Trudy's age to our advantage this year and didn't buy her much since she doesn't know any better.
She got a Paci Plushie Panda
And a hippo bath toy. Does this mean that she got a hippopotamus for Christmas? I think so!

And some clothes

Dave demonstrating "the Jersey roll" while Trudy and I watch from the dryness of the carport.

♪ Hasty the snowman was thrown together in a big hurry ♪
Roll Tide!

Then it was off to my parents house to be iced/snowed in for the next 24 hours.
Sleepy, sleepy T
The biggest bag of Dunkin' Donuts coffee I've ever seen. When oh when are we going to have a franchise here???
More with which to feed his Kindle needs
Shape up or ship out!
A size Medium Tall shirt. Though hard to find this is the size that fits Dave best. No more shirttails coming untucked or sleeves being too short.
Some Philosophy facial products for moi


A game they will enjoy playing together soon.
Mom is continuing the cross stitch Christmas ornament tradition with the next generation

Oooooh yeah. Man toys.
