Christmas at our House 2013

We hosted the hubby’s family Christmas gathering this year and I wanted the kids to have something to do.  So I put up this small tree and had them make ornaments for it!  I took craft scissors and made fancy edges around sheets of paper, tied ribbon to each one for hanging on the tree.  Then I had different types of crayons (metallic, glitter, regular) and stickers for them to use.  The end result which I think came out soooooo cute!!

Christmas Decorations 2013

Every year, I decorate my house differently from the year before, including my tree.  I get this from my mother, who loved Christmas and the house was alway so festive.  This year the ornaments on my main tree are red and green.  I ONLY put up three this year, guess I am getting tired of putting up and taking down stuff.

Keeping Warm

Ok, this is more like it.  I intentionally made the bed area smaller so they would have to huddle together and keep warm.  So far, so good!

It Wasn’t Me!

I try to give our dogs a warm place to sleep in our garage during the cold and this is the thanks I get – Roscoe chewing everything up!! I thought I had outsmarted him when I put the foam in between the former mattress cover and then tucked in the edges – NOT!  So they now have two blankets on the ground and will have to work with that.  If this continues, they will have to sleep in their doggie condo with the hay!

Squirrel – it’s What’s for Dinner

Greg did the cooking tonight.  He shot a squirrel the other day in the yard.  I have never been one to eat squirrel – psychological thing.  But tonight I tried it and it was pretty good.  Greg said I am getting my revenge since so many ate the fruit off of our trees this summer.  He also “chicken fried” some boudin.  Now that was really good!

My Version of Peppermint Ice Cream

I love peppermint ice cream this time of year, but I have not bought any yet.  I was going to have some ice cream anyway and then spotted the peppermints that I bought yesterday.  So I crushed some up, put them on the vanilla ice cream and added some chocolate syrup – yummo!  Gonna go eat it now and take a break from decorating and everything else I have done today!
