January pics

this is my favourite corner -- my reading place. I love the dark, earthy colours, The sunlight here in the morning washes over everything.

dining with the family . . . From the top left of the table: in white is Alice, next to her is Dale (our sister in law and Rob's brother - from Winnipeg). Top right: Mom, Heather (Rob's sis), KK (our youngest daughter), Savanna (our niece - H's daughter), Linds (our oldest daughter), Eri and James (our grandkiddies) and me in the red shirt (Robbie is taking the pic, of course!)

Last 2 pictures were taken from Middle Eastern Night - girls' night out!!! This soiree was held in my living room -- decor, food, music and after-dinner belly dancing - all as authentic as possible! We had a blast!!!! Rob made a table especially designed for lounging on the floor on pillows. It was such an adventure -- imagine 'traveling' to such an exotic place and never leaving your house?! Monika, MaryLynn and Donna. . . i love you girls!!! We have SUCH fun together!!! I already have some ideas for something completely different!!!!

any reason why ally has apparently left like 10 copies of the same comment lol? Looks like you've had a lot of fun lately Kat! And I'm in agreement with almost everyone else... the chair and the corner look so inviting...

Hey Faith! I was thinking of you today as i ate my pancake supper! Rob and I were talking about Lent. . I will pop by to see what's shakin' on your blog!

Janine!!! its so good to hear from you, girl! Ah, my reading corner. . i love it. . Yeah, Eri is 3 years old now -- i'm so out of touch with everyone from the S.A. until now, that is! i'll write you a letter, then we can catch up.

Ally -- Linds does have that look, eh? maybe cuz she was stuck at the end of the table!! Yes, the chair is sooo comfy! I wish i could carry it with me to work!!! bah!!!

Emma! Hey hon! So nice to hear from you. I'm going to get those CDs in the mail to you this week. . i haven't forgotten! Aren't Ally's million comments hilarious?! heh heh. . i'll do some deleting.

Well, I wasn't exactly pissed off, just mildly irritated - Erica made a game out of asking me to take her to the bathroom like, literally every 5 minutes, and she was just beginning to make toilet training progress so I had to take her! Most times she didn't have to go at all, she just wanted to get out of her seat and run around! Not only that, but sometimes I feel weird 'fake' smiling for pictures, I look much happier when I am genuinely amused!
