Our holidays in the "fufu household" were grand and I hope that yours were everything that you wanted them to be and more! As usual, Santa spoiled us all rotten.....what a guy (and a hunk as well:-)!
Quite unexpectedly he dropped this down the chimney for me (with great care I must add:-). I don't ever ask Santa for anything, so I never know what he will bring...but my computer is about six years old, has had many updates and fixes and sadly is now showing her age. Yayyy~ happy dance with this new laptop!
We enjoyed spending time with family and friends. These are our lovely daughters and their cute guys.
Murphy revels in having lots of people around, as long as they are paying lots of attention to him and bring treats!
We served lots of buffet style casual food over these last couple of weeks. That's mostly how the entertaining goes around our home, since the weather is so wonderful in Miami and we usually move the party outside.
A Miami tradition....stone crab claws to celebrate New Year's Eve! Have you ever had these TDF goodies? An interesting fact is that they are "kind harvested" food, as the fishermen break off one claw only and throw the crab back into the water. The crab regenerates a new claw and can do fine in the meanwhile until it grows back. So tasty, but pricey....so we usually only do them on New Year's Eve.
The guy who makes it all possible around here and does not mind that people who run into us and know me from my business call him "Mr Fufu"!
So now the Holidays are just about over. We spent all day yesterday taking down the Holiday decor and packing it away. The kids are still here and will be leaving tomorrow, the "real tree" is on it's way to recycling as we speak and today is "cleaning up the leftovers day" in the fridge!
Resolutions? I don't usually make any goals that are too lofty at this point in life....but I do know that I want to take more time this year to learn new skills and become more proficient at some that I already do know. As always I hope to do my very small part in helping to make the world a better place. That being said.......
