Now how can I drink coffee out of this cup, isn't it too cute to put hot drinks in.
My daughter Katie had this mug made for me with Baby Anthony's picture on it. He is chewing on his Spongebob Doll's foot. Look at those eyes how blue they are. Oh my sweet boy...

I just love him so much. Today they will be visiting this evening for an early New Years Eve celebration. I have a ham in the oven, made some macaroni salad that is Katie & Raymonds favorite. I am also making Arroz con Gandures or better known as yellow rice. Yes we are eating hearty tonight, this eve of New Years eve. LOL

This is what I have been working on. I started it and hope that I can make it my first finish of 2010. Its a design by Sampler Girl called Aunt Clara's Skating Sampler 1891. I bought it this past year and have been wanting to stitch it since. I think it will be perfect for January display. I hope Tanya (sampler girl) or Aunt Clara doesn't mind that I am changing the words just a bit. I want to add my name and 1972 to it because thats when my DH and I use to go ice skating together. Those were such fun times. We use to go with his sister and her boyfriend and we would skate for hours in Central Park Ice Skating rink, Wolman's. That was my favorite place to skate since I was a child in NYC. Me and my brothers and sisters would go there on weekends. What fun it was. We did skate in Rockefeller center before but it wasn't as fun as Central Parks rink which was huge
in comparison. More for families I think. I would like to go there again one day.
