Starting Fresh - 2011

2010 was a great year for the Patten family - lots of milestones and memories made! Now, we are looking onward and upward for 2011! Extremely proud of our SIL, Josh, for finishing Tech School with the Commander's Award. Soon he and the DD, Melissa, will be a bit closer as they will be stationed at Hill AFB in Utah.
Lots of great adventures planned for this coming year -- first will be helping the DD, Melissa, drive with her fur-babies from Wichita Falls TX to Utah. Lots of mother-daughter time/talk will be happenin' there!
Chinese New Year is just around the corner -- yes, once you have spent as much time in the Far East as I have, you must celebrate Chinese New Year! Will make dumplings, send cards, and try to make merry by myself as DH, Mike, will be away still.
Tonight I am getting down and dirty with my stamps and inks -- working on Valentine's Day cards and some swap commitments. Will post pics tomorrow!
