Family Time

What a great weekend ... and its not over!  Last night my nieces and nephew came over for a sleepover.  We've decided to do it regularly and definitely make it a New Years tradition.  We had dinner at a nearby Chinese restaurant (after driving by Pappy's which was closed!) and then a stop to Crave cupcakes because two of them had never been there.  We also went over to Transco fountain and then home for a little craftiness.  We picked two paintings from a local paint studio, which the girls completed today, we played a little Wii fit and did a bit of stitching.  In the morning I made monkey bread with my nephew, which was fun to do and yummy - I'd never made it.  I also clicked a few (hundred) photos of them today.  I love the look of youth, with a few pups thrown in for good measure.  It was so nice to have a houseful...
 
I also wanted to mention that the big house/studio cleanup will commence this week, while I'm off of work.  And one of my first steps for 2011 was to backup my computer with Mozy.  For $50 a year, I don't have to worry about losing my photos.  So glad I can cross something off my todo list.  I also returned 2 new purses to Coach (two years later) and used the gift card on a new little black number (Signature Tote).  Now, if I could only get my car situation straightened out - I need to sell my old one, return my company car and buy a new one.  I wasted Saturday talking to car dealers on the phone - hopefully tomorrow will work out swimmingly...  say a prayer!
