    Oh my goodness, he is so cute. And you look great, btw! I love your paintings – don’t stop! It’s great therapy & you leave with a masterpiece!

    How’s Dom’s big bro? You didn’t mention him in this post!

    I ran a Thanksgiving Classic 10k, and had a breakthrough race! I got all my presents out in time for Christmas. This year I gifted 4 quilts, among other things. So it was a feat!

    Cut my own tree, decorated, finished signing 16 cards (ran out!).. All I have left is to finish a quilt (hope to this weekend!) & make my chocolate mice (cherries that look like mice). Headed to Portland for Christmas! Can’t wait!

    Have a very Merry Christmas!!

      You are so right! Carlo is now very much in the background. He’s a teen, and too cool for the camera. And i don’t plan on stopping the painting. I think of it as good clean fun. I have a beer, chat with a friend, and get to take home a work of art. I have so many, i am actually giving a few as christmas presents this year.

      Congrats ok the breakthrough race! Thats awesome!

      Wow 4 quilts! I cant even imagine! It makes me want to pull out my sewing machine and do some work, but im so out of practice that i wouldnt know where to start!

      Cut your own tree!? You go girl! That is seriously awesome! Good luck on finishing that last quilt and mice! (How do i get on your gift giving list? Lol!) Have a great time in portland! Sounds perfect!
