Maisie, Eammon and I rang in the new year celebrating in our pajamas (the same ones from NYE 2011) at our neighbor’s NYE pj’s party. It was an evening filled with good friends, great food and fun times. Maisie just, and I mean *just* made it to midnight because during the last eight minutes before the ball dropped she started to fade. Considering she had been up since 6am, was at the gym for a practice at 7:30am, ran around outside for hours in the afternoon with *A* and then ran around all evening with all the party-going kids, she did great and hung on. She saw the ball drop, sipped her sparkling cider at midnight, watched less than 5 minutes of fireworks and by 12:20am the three of us were snuggled in bed with Eammon and Maisie already fast asleep.
The other day I went to take a picture with my iPhone but it wouldn’t let me as it said I was out of room. This surprised me as I really don’t take that many photos with my phone so I took a look and saw that while *I* don’t take all that many photos, Maisie does. Almost 3,000 pictures and videos and her favorite subject…well that would be Maisie! I have to say, my girl can be quite silly and she sure has a personality! I have cleared many of the pictures off but wanted to keep some that just struck my fancy. All of these photos were taken by Maisie, during our recent vacation in Aruba.
Today over on Cook Lisa Cook I posted a recipe for Sweet Potato Cranberry Nut Cookies, a recipe that my my Mom has been asking for since I made it with leftover sweet potatoes from Thanksgiving. These cookies are almost a cross between a cookie and a muffin and I especially enjoyed these cookies warmed slightly in the microwave and topped with with a pat of butter.
