Christmas Things

I have been plugging away on Christmas hats for the babies.  I received some adorable fleece preemie blankets from Nancy of the Preemie Hat Project last month, I have made matching hats to go with them and another dozen holiday hats. I need to get to work on newborn blankets too. I have only made one and have to put a border on the second one so I can get on to the next. Don't forget we are holding a newborn blanket drive all winter. Check out the previous post for details or just go to BellasBabies.org.

Here are pictures of everything mentioned in the post.





 
Oh yeah, and a scarf for me!
 
and Elvis!!

Introducing Elvis!

This is the newest member of the family. He is a 6 year old akita. We adopted him 2 weeks ago from Big East Akita Rescue in N.J. He is a real sweet boy, very affectionate and playful. We decided we didn't want a puppy so an adult was the way to go. There are so many that need homes.

Goodbye My Friend

Ronin
2000-2012
This past Monday I had to put my sweet dog to sleep. He had arthritis in his hips and back and couln't get around very well. We had to pick him up off the floor when he wanted to get up and had to hold him up so he could eat. It was the hardest thing I've every had to do and I miss him terribly.
