Sharing Christmas...New Year's


Happy New Year! I'm excited to share some of my Christmas and New Year's pictures with you...with my new SLR Digital SONY 350K. (Thanks to my special honey :) for this fabulous Xmas gift)!

I am starting with Christmas~random shots...



















~me with Santa sox on that I won in a gift swap~they have a furry cuff on the top and they're oh so warm-love 'em.

~Christmas was spent with family and friends...

~ grey and white kitty and Christmas paper


~my fabulous Tippy cat-she weighs in at 20lbs











Jackie (my gorgeous honey) and I rang in the New Year with my gf Amy and her hubby Phil in Colonial Williamsburg.









Back in October I donated a mural to a silent auction benefit and we bid on and won a week (12/31/08-1/6/09) to a resort in Williamsburg. We toured Jamestown while we were there and took a few strolls around town... my photo journey...

Hi Leslie,

Beautiful pictures. Love the socks and the kitties! Oh, and that cake looks yummy. Enjoyed your tour of Jamestown. Looks like you had a fun New Year's Eve.

Hope the new year is going well. Can't believe it's already 5 days old.

Happy New Year!

Hugs,

Renie

Thanks for stopping by my Blog to comment - that's how I found your Blog...Love your art! I totally relate to Tippy the cat - I'm feeling a bit "stuffed" after the holidays. Doesn't look like Tippy missed any holiday meals either. LOL...I want to visit Williamsburg someday. It's like a lot of fun.

Hi Leslie,
It was so nice of you to visit. I always like to hear from my visitors! You have some things here that I love = kitties, of course, Johnny Cash, Elvis, Williamsburg and of course I'll have a piece of that Chocolate cake! And I forgot Mr. Bob Marley.
I actually retired from performing Flamenco about 8yrs. ago - maybe longer, but I will always love it. It was my life for a very long time. I can see why you are so drawn to it - it definitly attracts people who are passionate!
All the best,
Catherine
