Happy Birthday, Kelley!

I can't believe another year has come and gone and our baby girl is 23! We are so proud of the young woman she has become. She knows herself better than anyone I know. That is an accomplishment at any age. I learn so much from her all the time and I am a better person for knowing her.

We had a pretty quiet birthday celebration yesterday. Kelley and Stephen spent the day together then we went to dinner at The Old Spaghetti Factory and back home for vegan cupcakes. We all had a very nice time. Happy Birthday, Kell-Bell!

Christmas 2010

This Christmas I began to shop early so I've been basically done for a few weeks now. Ken and I have been wrapping gifts as we purchased them. Today, Kelley and I canned blackberry jelly for family and friends. Tomorrow is baking day--we'll make some of our favorite Christmas cookies. Despite the rain, it's been good to be home. I love Christmas!
