Lauren's Birthday Party

Lauren has such a nice group of friends! They graciously included me in their dinner plans for her birthday. We ate at Grazis in Scottsdale. Here is the group, photo two is of me with Kevin, who is also a good friend of Lauren's cousin Nick (and brother to Amber at work's boyfriend - such a small world), Lauren with her good friend Ryan Swan and Mom and daughter. It was a nice evening.
(A "shout out" to Eric who said he reads my blog - I'm glad there is one person besides my mother. He is on the far right second from the end in the group shot. )

Chihuly Exhibit

My friend Dottie and I went to the Desert Botanical Gardens and took pictures of the Chihuly Glass art exhibit there. It was packed with people and lots of photographers trying to get photos without people in them. I put some more pictures on my 52 Things Blog if you want to see more glass photos. We went down to Tempe and ate dinner afterwards. When I got home, Lauren was back from her Panama Canal cruise. She said she had a great time. I will post a few of her pictures when she gets them to me.

The Leaves are Falling

Here is my project for today - it finally got cold enough here to make my Mulberry tree lose its leaves. Dudley loves to grab them and bring them into the house. I don't mind raking these up, but I hate fishing them out of the pool.

New Year's Eve

I just downloaded these pics from New Year's Eve. The "crystal" tree is actually made up of broken martini glasses. It is at AZ88 - they do a special tree every year. I was in by 10:00 so it was a pretty quiet night!

Putting Christmas Away

Happy New Year everyone - Time to put all the Christmas decoration away :( Here are two pictures from Christmas. The kids and Dudley as an elf. He doesn't like to dress up, so he had the outfit on for about one minute.
