Sunday was a beautiful day in Southern California, just a little windy. We decided to head down to Long Beach where the Queen Mary had free admission for SoCal residents. We managed hit most parts of the ship, except the engine room - my son was getting very tired. Took a few pictures - enjoy!

Hard to get a good picture here... was trying to show one of the hotel hallways - the hallway dips down in the middle then goes up on either end.
A beautiful art deco clock in the Queen Mary art gallery. The gallery has items that have been removed from the ship during remodeling.

Well, my little one is now 5. We had a wonderful birthday celebration for him! He wanted to stay in a hotel, and since we were heading to Disneyland on his birthday, we started checking out hotels around Anaheim. We chose Disneyland Hotel.
When we checked in, we were informed that the hotel picks one family a day to be The Magic Family - and that we had been chosen! We got an upgrade from a standard room to a suite, a certificate and a balloon bouquet.
The rooms were wonderful! Our room was classic Disney decor, while Colin's room was full of Mickey Mouse! We had a very hard time checking out... wish we could have done at least one more night - especially after a long day at Disneyland!

Monday is my son's 5th birthday. People who told me when he was a baby that time would go quickly weren't kidding! It's a lot of fun, though, to watch him become more creative, smart, inquisitive and independent! Luckily he still loves to cuddle with mommy!
Although we're not having a full on party this year, we are having a little get together with friends tomorrow at the Disneyland Hotel, then Monday we'll celebrate at Disneyland. What a spoiled kid! :)
Happy Birthday, Colin!

Thanks to VickiDianeDesigns! She is such a force on Etsy... If you haven't seen her treasuries, you are really missing out! She has artists put photos of themselves in listings so we can see who is behind all the beautiful items on Etsy. For the next couple of days, I get the honor of being featured with my teammates from CCCOE! Thank you, Miss Vicki! xoxo

Best wishes to everyone for a wonderful 2009!!!
We had a lovely New Year's Eve with friends, and today we headed to Pasadena to view the Rose Parade floats. Absolutely gorgeous - we're already making plans to do it again next year!
I have lots of new plans for Red Bess Bonney Creations... including my own web site, with help from a couple of friends... :) Stay tuned!!
