Goodbye 2012, Hello 2013

After a week day of over-indulgence, things were getting back to normal.  Presents put away, dishes washed and books and DVDs to watch.  Ahhh, I'll just sit down and put my feet up................

WTH is that smell?  Oh for the love of dog Rory, go outside mate.  I knew I shouldn't have given you that left over ham and pork.  

Ooooh, arghhhhhhh, gurgle, grumble, phftttttt!  Ahhhh.  Mum, my tummy ache feels better now.  

What the heck is that wonderful smell coming from the family room?  Mmmmmmm, smells devine. 

I was going to post a year in review but alas have run out of time.  These past weeks have flown by.  Christmas has come and gone and 2013 is rushing towards me (help I'm not ready for another year yet).  The one thing that has been constant is the love of family and that includes our two rascals.  They have given me more laughs than I can remember.  

As you can see from the photo below (Jan 2012) Stella was a bossy little turd darling.

 Now, December 2012, she is still a bossy little, er, darling.  But believe it or not, Rory absolutely adores her.

 He sleeps, she keeps an eye on things.

 Butt (hehe), one thing is certain.  We all know who is Queen of the Castle don't we Stella!

So dear friends, put your best foot forward in 2013 and our good wishes for happiness and good health to you all.


No worries, and love, 
Carol, Stella,and Rory

  23. Happy New Year! Sounds like you had a great Christmas. Cousin Pretty Girl was here and we even got a little snow before it turned to freezing rain. Abby snagged some popcorn and had an upset tummy, so she's full of sympathy for Rory, being as they were both full of something else.
