Here is my nephew Paul (on the left) and my youngest Dominic, nicknamed Encino Man by his work family. We celebrated Paul's 20th birthday this month at a local Chinese restaurant. I can't believe this amazing young man is 20 years old! They have been friends since birth and still are as close as brothers, living together while going to college. Sigh!

My friend Michele hosted a cookie exchange! We had so much fun! It was nice to get together during the holidays.

I got a manicure! Being a dog groomer, it is not worth getting my nails done....ever. Every year at Christmas time, I always say I am going to get my nails done, but never want to spend money on somehting I can do myself. This year, I thought dammit, I'm gunna do it......And I did! It was nice to be pampered and I loved it!
Lastly, there has been a lot of snuggle times with Ava and our coffee :)
