The year in review

Good morning friends!

Yup...here I am....finally making a post worth reading (I hope).   Whew...has it been busy!  Like so many of you, we have had company off and on, been traveling to and fro...but today all is back to normal.  Mr. Whimzie has returned to work after a week off, the company is gone, and I'm left alone to pick up the mess!  LOL

I haven't had time to take down the decorations, even if I wanted to.  We like to keep Christmas in our hearts and home until at least this coming weekend.  I will gradually be putting them away, but the trees will stay for another week.  

This coming weekend we will celebrating the Baptism of our sweet new grandson, so I'll be making a big cake for that to have after church.  Peter is such a joy to us all and as cute as a button.  Proud Gran-mummy is going to share some pictures now...bear with me!

I've noticed that many of my blogging friends are sharing some of their favorite posts/pictures from the past year, so I'm going to jump in too and have some fun...as I look at the year in review....

Speaking of blessings, our dear friend Trace over at Granny Trace's will be starting the year off by sharing 100 days of Scripture...what better way to start this new year than reflecting on our Lord's word!

Have a great day!
