Tag, Giveaway, & Pics

Ladyfrog tagged me with the CRAZY EIGHT meme so here you have it. I'm supposed to tag 8 people but you know how I hate doing that so the first 8 who want to play....your it.

But before I do I just want to tell you about a book giveaway over at my friends blog JUST BEING ME. It's called "Prisoner of Circumstance". The novel is about a woman, a mobster, a cop, a prophet, betrayal, murder, and the struggle to do what's right. I read the first few little excerpts of it here and I'm hooked and can hardly wait to read the rest. Go check it out and sign up for the give away here, or click on the book on my side bar to the right.

Oh and we had a wonderful Christmas! I got to hold my grandbutton the entire time after all the gifts were opened. Miss K made Christmas so much fun this year. I can hardly wait until next year!
Here are a couple of pics I took with my new accessories I got for my camera. I got a new digital flash and a closeup lens. This was from the other side of the room!

Looks like someone is a fan of house shows... and crime shows. Which says more about your personality? Hmm... :)

Happy Christmas to you and yours. May your new year be merry and bright (and filled with BIG batches!).
