I love baby snuggles!  Little Evelyn was so sweet.  Her best friend/guard dog was constantly making sure I was being nice.  It was adorable!  Soon she will be snuggling him and feeding him from her high chair.  But for now we celebrate her being small and smelling like baby shampoo.

Larry & Cheryll – St Mary’s Pecatonica

I couldn’t have asked for a better way to spend my New Years Eve.  Larry & Cheryll are such kind people and incredibly sweet together.  They went to high school together.  Went on to raise their families and both lost their spouses.  And after all these year found their way to each other.  I loved how they they had their children and grandchildren stand up and had a lovely gift for the grandchildren during the ceremony.  The cutest moment was when the flower girl lost her shoe.  Cheryll carried on the family tradition of having a handkerchief tied around her flowers.  After the ceremony we went to Ciminos for pizza, beer and celebration.  If you haven’t had the pizza from Ciminos in Pecatonica, you haven’t lived.  It is still to this day my favorite pizza.
