Leggs on Christmas Day

Leggs likes the snow…kinda.  He doesn’t go crazy in it and roll all over the place, but he also isn’t afraid of the white fluff.  So we enjoyed tromping around the yard on Christmas morning through the light covering of snow.  And as always, Leggs had no problem sitting and staring off into the distance for a photo-op…he probably thought he saw a squirrel or bird off in the woods…

Merry (White) Christmas!

Merry (White) Christmas!

It was a nice treat to arrive home after midnight following some Christmas Eve festivities and find a blanket of fresh-fallen snow.  So have a very Merry White Christmas!!

Merry Christmas Eve…from 1988!

Merry Christmas Eve...from 1988!

1988 was probably a good year…I don’t remember exactly what happened that year, but I was 5 and we had just recently moved into our house, so I’m sure I had a fun year.  Plus, I’ve got a nice smile on my face in this photo that was taken on Christmas Eve.  Doesn’t Kristin look swell in her dress?  And Michael’s zig-zag sweater is quite cool.  And it looks like we made a paper chain to put on the tree this year…who knew you could have so much fun with a little stapler and strips of colored construction paper?!

Merry Christmas Eve!!  And Happy 1500th Daily Photograph!!!

Leg Lamp Cake for “Rodger”

Leg Lamp Cake for "Rodger"

Fans of “A Christmas Story” will certainly recognize the artwork on this fine cake.  Last year, Heather’s Uncle Roger turned the big 6-0 and got to blow out the candles on an awesome leg lamp cake…and aside from the slight misspelling of his name, he enjoyed it very much!

Uncle Rog is unfortunately in the hospital right now trying to get better after a burst appendix and other infections.  He’ll likely be in the hospital over Christmas, but hopefully he’ll be able to watch some of the “A Christmas Story” marathon to keep his spirits up!

Kitty Christmas

What is it about cats and Christmas that make them such a good fit?  Well, unless you don’t like cats and/or Christmas, in which case there is probably no connection at all…

This ornament combines cats and Christmas into a nice little scene.  It was a gift from my Aunt Joyce to me on the Christmas before my 3rd birthday, and I’m pretty sure it has been on the tree every year since.  Thanks Aunt Joyce!

Gotta love a good ole’ cylindrical Santa that holds extra long matches for the fireplace!
