Happy holidays to everyone! It's been a busy time and I am very happy its over!
Some new things for next year, I have decided to start a game nite at my place. What we have decided to do is pick either old card games like gin, bridge etc and then board games to play every other Friday. (My friend Roger is Dying to bust out shoots and ladders!)
To make things even more interesting we are going to follow Kitty Kills "tie one on Tuesdays" (http://fasterkittykill.blogspot.com/)to try a new drink each time. Should be fun! Its a way to get together with friends and learn new games and reminisce over the old one. Without the expensive of going out to the pub or the movies. Plus drinking is always a good time!
Also I have collected quite a few embroidery patterns over the years and I don't think I have used more than 1% of them. This year I am going to attempt to embroider one pattern a week (I'd say a day but that would be doomed from the beginning! LOL!) Here's to stitching with purpose!
So I have been a busy bee the last couple of months. Between working on holiday stuff, school and all that I have been worn out! LOL!
But as you can see I have a new haircut. It's short! I was tring to get a middy but the girl didn't understand. (even with picture and instruction) Thats alright it will grow and now I have bangs! Its loads easier to do the Victory rolls now with it shorter as well.
Just a little citrus-y evil via my tea towel swap. Actually I have the logo for Sinister Citrus web design to thank for the idea. My Husband just added the goatee for extra evil. :)
And Look Look! Its me in some random Bat's day pictures from last Fall. If you've never been its a blast. This year we're gonna try Rock around the park (rockabilly day) I think I have a better wardrobe for that. LOL!
I'm standing in the right hand corner in the back next to the colum

Tis the season for summer Vacations. The Kids, the Niece, my mom and I headed off to the LaBrea Tar pits and of course, Disneyland.
If you've never been to the Tar pits you should go. Its right in the middle of Hollywood, not to far from Beverly hills (which I find Hilarious) Its small and at most you could spend maybe two hours there.
The Lake out side reminds me of The Bog of Eternal stench. It bubbles and makes noises and of course smells.
They have these statues in the lake that depict how the fossils got there, It looks sad. You can almost hear the baby Mammoth say "daddy don't go!" I know its evil but it kinda made me giggle. The Niece thought it was funny too so it wasn't just me.
They have a small Museum as well with all the fossils they have found, movies, a fishbowl lab, and a garden walk. Doesn't the boy look so excited to be doing something educational on his Vacation?
Turtles! They had gorgeous plants in the walk like this curly fern
Then it was off to Disneyland. Now don't get me wrong I love Disneyland, we all have annual passes. I just love it a little less in the summer, Its hot and crowded and we have to repeat our Disneyland Mantra alot. "The Lines are long and the rides are short."
The kids were very excited to see the new light parade, I just wish Disney would make up its mind. They retired it, sold off pieces, brought it back and then changed it. The Blue fairy has been replaced by Tinkerbell. That was a little sad for me cause she was always my favorite but the new Pyrate ship totally made up for it!
