    Love your New Years meal - wish I could be at your house as no one here can stand sauerkraut except me, so sad!

  19. Happy New Year, Lynn! I love your little S&P set! Santa must be courting his lady, hence his red cheeks!

  20. Great A-Z list. As for D - I want to bring my snowmen out, but I don't have a lot that aren't Christmasy (you know, holding a tree or decked out in red and green). I'm always on the lookout for some un-Christmasy ones though.

  21. Hi Lynn, You are so good at these! What a creative person you are. Have a wonderful 2012! A new year, filled with promise!
    Hugs, Beth

  27. Lynn,
    Yay! The days are getting longer! Great A-Z and Happy New Year!

  28. Oh Lynn, you are too funny. You hit me on the head on several - yes, definitely bloated and miserable, yet keep shoving in more holiday foods! I always gain after Christmas, before I am too busy. Nope, the Christmas lights NEVER got taken down last year (shame)! Yes, Valrhona is wonderful. So glad to have been your friend for another year! Have a great New Year.


Thanks for stopping by!
