Make-A-List Monday November-December 2018 in Review

A new year is about to start, but before we ring in 2019 we need to reflect on the past two months. 

November & December 2018 have been a blur...

Not much sewing has happened but that is okay.  That is the nature of this time of year.

Our Thira turned one year old on November 26.




 It's amazing how such a large pup can be so sweet.

I watched my beloved USC Trojan football team self-destruct.
There is always next year...

We spent an amazing week in Disney World in November.





I tried a lot of new recipes.  I think my favorite was this
 Cranberry-Apple Crumb Pie.
Just the right blend of tart and sweet.
YUM!!!

We celebrated Christmas in December.





I've revamped my planning system for 2019.

Hopefully I will be able to keep up with my planner/meal plans.

Now on to my list...
