A Lovely Christmas Season to You!

I hope you all had a very Merry Christmas and that your holiday season is going splendidly! I am back in town after an extremely brief trip home. But - responsibilities beckon and all that ...
I am working hard today, but, in honor of the Christmas season, I'm doing it in front of my Christmas tree in my holiday pajamas - all day!
A continued blessed and beautiful holiday season to you and yours!

Zilker Trail of Lights 2007

We had our annual pilgrimage to the Zilker Trail of Lights. It's always a lot of fun to walk around all the different displays and then spin yourself silly under the big tree!

I also should mention that I have been going loco - as expected - with adding music, etc. to my blog. The sidebars keep going down further and further and further ...

Oh, and we added an "audio preview" to our website, if you just can't seem to get enough of my voice. :P

Houston Rockets Game!

This past weekend, I went to the Houston Rockets versus Dallas Mavericks game in Houston with my family. It was a lot of fun and nice to do something as a family, especially since I've been so involved in my own work and social stuff lately.
This time of year - it's crazy how busy it is! I have not done any of my Christmas shopping! None!! I can hear the mall calling my name ... : )

Let the Holidays Begin!

Let the Holidays begin! And, of course, that means holiday parties! It's amazing how many things we all try to fit into this month! Fun things, though!

Here are pictures from my friend Jennifer's annual "Wine, Cheese, and Chocolate Party," which was fabulous, as usual! And, then a later charitable event I attended.

I don't have my normal energy since I'm not quite well yet so I'm taking the events as easy as I can, but that's so hard to do this time of year. -- I am so ready to see myself back to normal and looking healthy and rested!

Oh, and a friend "elfed" me! I'm not sure how long the link will last, but it's fun for now!
I sure can get down, can't I? ; )

Alivia's First Birthday Party!

My niece Alivia is a year old and is walking! She had a wonderful birthday party with lots and lots of relatives and presents. Adding to the excitement is that my sister-in-law and brother found out their next child is going to be a boy! It was a fun afternoon all the way around!

This is me and Alivia and my mom and Alivia.
