Woo hoo -- the LAST layout of this project! Now I just have to figure out the cover and get this baby uploaded and ordered.

Journaling: To please my husband, I made him a fruitcake this Christmas. I can’t remember the last time I made one, but I remember that the first time I made one was for his parents the Christmas after we became engaged. His daddy couldn’t stop raving about it.

We spent the last evening of the year with our dear friends Alice and Everette. It has become our tradition to alternate homes for our New Year’s Eve festivities, and this year we hosted.

Don spent the last day of the year preparing another bed in the garden. He wants to plant oodles of tomato plants. I think I need canning lessons.

Katie took a last practice before the recital began. She did a great job.

For some reason I started receiving free issues of Architectural Digest. This is the last one. I enjoyed reading it and realized Hemingway was right: the rich are different. It’s hard for me to imagine spending tens of thousands on an area rug.

This little cutie has the last family birthday of the year. She turned one on December 27, and we celebrated with a big family party at Brittany and Colby’s.

Last year, this garden was an overgrown lot. Don worked his magic, and we’ve been enjoying tomatoes, peppers, broccoli, and onions with more to come.

Our last decadent indulgence of 2013 was Salted Caramel Pots de Creme -- not a snap to make, but oh, so yummy. If salt and caramel are involved, I’m in heaven.
