What is the problem!!??

What in the world is all this Ghastlie stuff!! I mean can't you just leave us alone!


We are just like everyone else!

Really!!

We so enjoy each others company. In fact once a month we all get together for dinner.  This month was my turn to make the main dish.
So I donned my apron and got right to work!




Mmmm, spaghetti, see, normal, just like yours!!

I was able to bring it nice and hot in my casserole carrier!


(pattern from 2 Little Hooligans)

I also brought the aunts a treat, they need to move into some other craft besides knitting!! This cute little basket filled with  Presencia Perle Finca  should do the trick!



This was the first time in months that we were all here so what a wonderful opportunity for a family picture.



See, we are no different than any other red blooded family!!
Who am I? Hmmmm, that will be my secret!!
