And I was feeling a little guilty for not posting a single holiday picture for Jessica who has been so diligent all season...so here is what I have
I am still trying to figure out how to "shoot the moon" but the early morning eclipse started this magical month spectacularly!
There is never a shortage of new tastes and textures at a Derby Girl event--my first persimmons!
Derby Girls and Dude gather to celebrate in style.
Christmas Tree sleepover sent Luke straight to Dog Heaven!
So being a sleepover and all....a couple "pranksters" decided that they wanted to toilet paper their first house, just like their dad had told them he had done when he had sleepovers. First they made sure Nana and Grandpa were fast asleep and then they went to work....and being the frugal toilet papers they were they covered the house..one sheet at a time...even Joseph was in on the fun!
And meanwhile, on the porch the cat and a couple of reindeer were obviously casing the joint for the big night!
Trying to get rid of some pre-Christmas energy--it didn't work
Baking Christmas cookies became more boy friendly when we found the Ninja Turtle cookie cutters!
The halls are decked, the baking baked, the gifts "almost" wrapped and Mrs. Claus is getting older. (I told Heather, I wish there was more time to just sit and enjoy the season without quite so much work, but still have the decorating and food....she replied, "so what you are saying is you want to be a husband!")
Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night..... (well for a few hours anyway)
