We had a blast at the family's house in Arizona. It was just as good as I knew it would be--relaxing, rejuvenating, and sooooo good to catch up with Gabe and Mary Jo. I have the very best in laws in the world. I got to help Gabe prune the Palo Verde and Palo Blanco (blanca?), as has become our annual tradition, I think. Phil and his parents and brother played poker while the sis-in-law and I yabbered (and I sewed unders for Izzies). We were having such a good time, we stayed an extra day!
|When they're not playing golf, they can watch it out the patio doors!|
|Mary Jo is kicking butt.|
|Sis-in-law gets, um, quite a few more phone calls than I do. Maybe I should wonder about that. Nah.|
|It's a doll party!|
|Four years in the same house is a record for us. Red walls...great color, but not exactly neutral.|
|This is Eve, who will be my first Izannah Walker type doll for 2013.|
She already has a home...but not so far away I can't visit.
Hope everybody is having a lovely holiday season, spending more time with loved ones and less money on "stuff"...hope you are able to slow down, breathe and reflect.
And if you don't hear from me in a few weeks, send a search party to our mini storage, just in case I accidentally got packed in a moving box. Thank you.
