Santa Came EaRLy**

Anne Marie came over for a visit on Wednesday...
she came bearing an early Christmas gift,
a really good one.
She was so excited to give it to me she couldn't wait until Christmas.

Lets guess what it is...

"oh.. is it a nice warm winter hat..??"

"oops.. no it's a little cozy for my teapot...maybe.."

"oh wait.. could it possibly be a this seasons most stylish must have accessory!?

yes indeed! With this dreamy hat, I am sure to get more ooohs and aaahhs than ever before.
And no.. you cannot borrow it.

Christmas GiftS*

I started working on some foam prints yesterday for Christmas gifts. I always forget how time consuming these things are until I start doing them again. It's fun and oh so messy. **

Is it ChRisTmas Yet?*

The Thanksgiving mini vacation was so nice. We were both home all week to spend time together and of course play with Matty's puppy. We took them for long walks in the morning so that they would sleep most of the day.
Taking them to the dog park was a little awkward. I was constantly feeling like some kind of drug dealer when calling for the dogs. "Cash...Kilo...come here..Cash... Kilo.."
We were getting looks.
So my call changed, "Cash...Puppy...Cash...Puppy.." not too successful.
Cash was so depressed when Kilo left, he spent two days lounging around, not even food interested him.

dogie walkie..

dogie sleepy..

We finished putting up all the Christmas junk over the weekend.
I haven't done a lick of shopping. I started making a few goodies but that's it so far.
it's been cool enough for afternoon/evening fires.. my favorite.

ThiRD grADe ArChiteCts**

I'm having the third grade classes design their own dream house. It has been so entertaining. I can tell which students have hampsters, they've been drawing tunnels to connect to different areas of their house.
Slides, tunnels, secret underground rooms, heart shaped windows, trampolines in every room, trap doors and secret swimming pools.
I'm ready to move in.

ThiS WeEk...

Made a collage

Dogsitting cute cute Kilo

Pulled out the Christmas decorations... haven't gotten too far yet.
Lights on the tree.

We bought some cool LED lights(is that what they are called?)
So now I don't have to worry about burning the house down.

I want to paint the bathroom (and clean the mirror)

Last day of work for the week. Getting ready to gobble down some turkey. mmmmm...

ThiRd cUps a ChArm*

... decaf of course.

Well, the last 2 were decaf. For some reason if I drink decaf, I think it's okay to drink 5 times more than I would of the "real" stuff.

My camera is broken, the screen is black when I try to take a picture. I have no idea how the pic looks until I upload it onto my computer.

I think I need to clean my desk.

Tomorrow is Friday!
yiP, yIppEE!

Our trip home was great. I finished knitting all but a sleeve on my sweater, went for a few long runs, rode 4-wheelers for miles and spent lots of time hanging around my parents new guest cabin. It was so beautiful.
Heather and Ali came on Wednesday and spent the rest of the week with us. V and Ali spent most mornings and evenings hunting. brrrr.. too cold for me.

While we were there my parents had a wood fireplace installed in the cabin and it was wonderful. I hadn't seen any pictures while they were building it so it was an extra treat to see it for the first time.

Our future cabin site,
we made lots of plans.

Nothing says love quite like matching flannel.

Off they go to get our turkey dinner. gobble gobble.
