Aww, that is sweet. Glad they are having fun it it!

Yes, we have some snow, and more coming this weekend! But not near as much as you guys.
The cold weather is especially brutal, for it being so early. Getting down to -13 tonight! High of 0 tomorrow...brrr!

Sunday I lost my power during the Christmas party and it was off until Monday morning. I had just the fireplace so I slept in the living room in front of it in a sleeping bag. Brandi and the kids fly home Friday and I think they are seeing some snow in Boston today... I hope everyone is keeping warm!! DId I say I love the winter?? this makes Christmas 100 times better than being 75F in Dec.! Have a good afternoon all!
It sounds like you are totally enjoying it! Sounds beautiful! Gotta love sleeping in front of the fire. ENJOY!!!

Hopefully by this time of night you are feeling even better. There's not much new around here - I guess newest thing is being down to 1 dog again. LOL! Except for my lunch hour dog sitting (taking the Golden doodle puppy out across the street) - she is so sweet. I could take her home! Anything new with you? I hope Harlowe is doing well!!!

My mom doesn't like traveling even a small distance so we don't go anymore. I would, but then I feel guilty going without them. But I have all the CDs, digitals and DVDs. LOL

Hope you have an amazing time!

Praying for your FIL!

Thanks for all the prayers for my FIL & also the fun wishes for the TSO concert. I'm so excited especially since we didn't go last year.
Graywolf - that is a bummer they aren't in your area anymore. I have never been disappointed by their show! Just hoping my hubby can go! He's not too optimistic!!!

Oh yeah... that's when Moose was a puppy!! Aaaaawwwww!!" LOL

I left to run an errand at noon. Got back at 1:15. Walk in the living room and notice an entire string of lights out on the base of the tree. Yes some od the new ones. At this point I'm turning into Ralphie's dad. Nadafinga!
I guess I should be grateful there were no ornaments so it was easy to pull the whole string off to find the problem. Oh... I found it. One kitten who has not touched the tree since he went base diving into it, grabbed the cord and chewed threw it. One bulb is completely MIA, green housing and all. I tried to strip the wires and reassemble, but it just wasn't working. I'll need to splice them. Soooo.. I went back to the store, got another set and put them on. I'll use the Frankenstein set for something elsewhere around the house. LOL

Have to pick up my MIL from the airport at 10pm, but till then it's all decorating.

Hope everyone else is having a great day!!

You sound so calm about the lights! You will have to post a pic of your tree when it's done - after all that work! Hope you are having a great night!
