Christmas presents, etc.

As promised, some gift photos. Nancy got the newest Jance novel, among other books on her list.

Allison got a loaf pan, and several books... and an I-Pod Nano she has wanted for several years!

Bill got the word puzzle book from Allison and the brand new "U is for Undertow" mystery by Sue Grafton - Kinsey Millhone mystery book, among other books on his list.

Allison took this photo of me putting away pots/pans after dinner... we have so little storage space, each has to go in a special place or they don't all fit in... my job to reach around the corner to "get it right." Perhaps! ;-)

It was another very good day! ;-)

Bill, you are soooo lucky to have the U book. I have read them all, and am on the wait list from the library, something like #350! Enjoy it for me.
Looks like some nice gifts. Now to say, Happy New Year to you and your family.

Kinsey has been my favorite sleuth from the beginning, as well. Sue Grafton has done a wonderful job in keeping her fresh, over many many years. I've stopped reading other series because the character changed too much! Interesting. Best to you and yours, as well, in the New Year! ;-)
