For Alisa (and any other vintage lovers)

The Painted Porch-at the outlet mall (yes, the outlet mall) in MN, not too too far up from the border. Diane is the owner-and we met Karen (?) who use to live in Bettendorf!
Wonderful place!
More yummy pictures later!
Off to to the festivities!!

We were silly...
We bowled...
For real:

Visited with friends...
Loved each other...

Remembered the reason for the season...
(no, not cake... Jesus. :) )
Welcomed Santa...
And opened these...
And did more of this...
Enjoyed said gifts...

Did even MORE of this...
THIS has to be my favorite gift for my kids (sense any sarcasm?)
Oh wait... need a close up??

And on New Years, we ate a TON of THIS with our fabulous friend Anne...
Snuggled with these...
And banged on these at Midnight...
Overall, we are very blessed!
And very busy!
