The Holidays were SO much fun this year! With Christmas and a Jellico Ball on New Years, it's been one great event after another!

Now is a really good time to catch up on some sleep by the fire while waiting for all the spring critters to come out. Plus, I'm skipping the Lunar New Year celebration: its the year of the DOG! (Although it is so much fun to outwit them!)

Here's hoping you and yours stay warm and cuddly through the winter months!
