The season to be jolly.

Oh! she looks so serious.
There is a bit of a pretzel at stake so she is obeying and sitting very still.
I just want to tell her to lighten up...buttercup! 
She would be a perfect Buttercup wouldn't she with her blonde hairs.

Katie and I decorated for Christmas last night.  This is weeks early for me.
But my sister Cindy and her husband Pat are coming to town for a fun 5K tomorrow and we have decided to celebrate Christmas together.  Stephanie and Wesley (Sue's son and daughter in law) are coming too!  
Cindy was hoping for some holiday decorations....and she's got em!

We found this darling collar in with the Christmas decoration.  Ginny may look serious but she  sounds super cute dashing around the yard with her jingle bells on.   

So today I am busy making lists and cleaning.

Here is what I plan on serving tomorrow night after the race.

Potato soup
BBQ pork
Broccoli Cauliflower salad
Mandarin Orange salad
Chocolate pie

Cindy is bringing lots of favorite snacks.

We are doing a nice white elephant.  I don't think any of us have the heart to give joke gifts.
I'm heading out for a little shopping in a minute.

Can you see the famous Chicago theater sign? That was a happy accident!


Gosh.  This is the last time we have all been together. 2012.
Cindy took this picture!  
Thanks Cindy.

Patrick missed his nap.
Eh. Hem.

Ho. Ho. Yummy. Yo!!!


  1. Ooh, sounds like such fun! The menu sounds yummy.
    My boys insist on Christmas decorating the day after Thanksgiving. It's going in stages this year. I'm dragging my feet on finishing up.
    And Ginny would be a perfect Buttercup. ;)

  2. Have a lovely weekend with your family!

    How fun for all of you! My SIL is known in the family as The Queen of Snacks as she always brings the most fun things to snack on and even has "snack dinners" for her family at home. Love and prayers, jep
