was a huge success!

She's thinking the coolest part is that it can get naked.

For her birthday, she's asking for a turtle wardrobe. I'll have to see what I can do.

And for the grownups on Hanukkah, a lot of cooking and baking.
Craig supplied some sidecars so we'd all be able to muddle through.
These might be a new favorite. How do you make one, you ask? Cointreau, Cognac and lemon juice over ice in a shaker. Pour into a glass with a powdered sugar rim.

If only the big present was here. Our new fireplace.

Three straight days of snow and we're stuck staring at the empty space where it's going to go. We couldn't wait any longer, so we all drew one in. It's not really the same.

I'm hoping the real fireplace belts out a little more heat than it's magic marker counterpart.

In the meantime, turtle is asleep in Zoe's bed and I can get back to the white project. One front, the back and a sleeve are all done. Time for some blocking and a size check before the second front and sleeve. Maybe it's the sidecars, but I'm feeling optimistic about it...

HAHAHAHHA!!!!! I love the magic marker fireplace.

Sidecars are delicious. And so fabulously, 1940's. Very glam!

What perfect weather for a fireplace. Let's hope that you are soon drinking your sidecars in front of it.
