A week in pictures!

I finally got the whole picture storage issue with blogger all figured out thanks to a few commenter's (thanks ladies!) on my last post.  As it turns out, you are only given a certain amount of free storage space when you sign up with them.  I purchased a good amount of extra space for a very small fee.  This should last me for several more years and give me more time to figure out what I'm going to do with this blog.  In any event, I was able to upload more pictures...YAY!!!
A great winter dish....homemade sweet potato gnocchi

Great pictures! Love the store windows. That cat. Why did you name her Sarah??? Just curious. Cats are great fun. Loved seeing your happy family! Happy and blessed New Year!

great pictures Nancy. Thanks so much for buying the extra space to share your photos with us.

I hope you have a great new year.

Sarah....we actually should be spelling the cat's name "Cera" as our cat is named after the little tri-ceratops dinosaur from "The Land Before Time". However, I forgot all of that when we took her to the vet for the first on all her records, I spelled it "Sarah"...and it stuck!
Now, with that being said....I really like my friend Sarah that lives in Hawaii....and I LIKE that our cat is named after her!!! **wink**
