Starting the year off right!

To bring in the New Year, we heading to Deep Creek Lake to meet up with DH's extended family.  There was an addition to the family - Harley!

Ming wasn't too impressed with him, she was just a little puffy tailed and Max stayed upstairs under our bed most of the time!

Harley and Toby got along fine.

After Ming put him in his place, she ignored him.

Then he ignored her!

And then she just teased him!

Game time, Apples to Apples, I had Harley helping me.

He was so funny, he loved chasing shadows!

We went snow tubing on New Year's Day.  Luckily the sun was shining and it wasn't too cold. 

Nathan did go down on his own, but he liked having company too.

In stitching news, I had a finish in Dec '14 AND a finish in Jan '15!  The gmen were supposed to get these for Christmas, but I didn't quite make it.  Besides, I think they'll keep it in their rooms year round anyway!
They'll get the same numbers next year, so I won't have to make another set.

The team actually has at least four different jerseys to wear for games, but I like the dark blue ones the best.  
These "pink" ones were for breast cancer awareness - socks too!

In the beginning of the season, they started a small prayer group before each game.

By the end of the season, it had grown.

Forgot about this one... while in NY, I looked to see if I could find a cross stitch shop and found "Stitch".  I thought the hours were a little late and then found out why!

The boys ornaments are wonderful.

A bar? Really?? Trying to think how it relates to the word 'stitch'... We have family in Oakland, which is one of the towns surrounding Deep Creek, so we try to go as often as possible--once a year for now. The jersey ornaments are really great! That is just wonderful that the prayer group has grown in number! Amen!

Loved all the pictures Astrid. The critter ones are so cute. The jersey ornies are awesome.


DJ said...

Hm....Stitch huh? I think we need to open one of those here! LOL Love the ornies, and pictures of the fur babies. Your stitching is wonderful! As for the prayer group, you know how I feel about that. Bless those kids!! *Hugs*

Jo who can't think of a clever nickname said...

I guess they started winning a lot of games after the prayer group started? Great way to share your faith.
I'm with the cat about the introduction of a dog; we're cats and dragon folk here!
Love the Stitch Bar we really should open one but we better restrict the alcohol or we'd have to rename it Frog!
