Colin and I went shopping this weekend and I saw this coffee mug at the Hallmark store and I fell in love with it. I wouldn't normally ever buy a coffee mug, I have plenty for only a 1 person coffee drinkin house, but I could not pass him up. Plus, he was $10.00 and I had a $5.00 off coupon! :) Merry Christmas to me.

It was our first Thanksgiving with Romeo. He loved it. Not only did he love all the attention, he loved the FOOD! Dad tried to run him out of the kitchen, but he refused to leave. Papa finally gave up.
I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving!

I have so many blessings in my life, here are just a few. There is nothing more important than family and mine is the best. I love all of you...even those that have fur.
I hope everyone has a very Happy Thanksgiving. I know I will, because I'm spending it with my family.
Lots of Love!

Both of us have a cold so we haven't felt like doing much. Colin's cold is in the beginning stages so he feel extra crummy. Mine, it's on the way out (which is why I had energy to clean my home). Saturday I rented us 3 movies to watch because Colin didn't feel like getting off the couch. While he watched the first movie I worked on my December Daily Album. I drug all my goodies to the family room so I could sit with him.
Saturday the mailman delivered a package to me that I just had to share with you. I found this lady on Ali Edwards' blog and fell in love with the goodies she makes. Her Etsy store is called Banana Fish Studio's and it is lovely.
She recreated vintage milk caps for Christmas. Super cute!
Little journaling cards. I love her packaging too. It's those little details that reel you back for more. :)
"C" is for Colin too.....and Cat.
While I worked on my album and Colin watched TV, two of the fur-balls took an afternoon nap. It was a perfect day for a nap.
This morning Colin slept in so Romeo and I had to be extra quite for about 3 hours. He was very happy to see Colin when he did finally drag his lazy bottom out of bed.

Shann planned this craft that was so stinkin cute, we couldn't stop laughing while we were putting it together. The little snow people are made from the fingers of white mittens. Each snowman represents someone from our family.
Look at him looking at her while slipping the flower on her wrist. How sweet!
One of Shelby's girlfriends stopped by for pictures too. They are two beautiful girls!
After Shelby left we put our jammies on and did some more crafts. I brought a bunch of scrapbook paper and we made homemade Christmas tags. We stayed up late until it was time for Shelby to come home. She had a great time at the dance.
Sunday morning we made our final craft, another one Shann found. She took red and white pipe cleaners and soaked them in tea so they were a bit antiqued. Then she dried them in the dryer, we cut them in half and took a white and red pipe cleaner and wrapped them around one another. Once wrapped you put the little curve to make the shape of a candy cane and we added some glitter to sparkle them up. Super cute!
By Sunday Romeo was really enjoying his new stuffed animal, so much he tore a hole in its bottom and before long, we found stuffing everywhere and he even pulled out the squeaker. I grabbed it, stuck it back inside and asked Aunt Shann if she could sew up his hole. She said she would give it a try on her sewing machine so hopefully it would have a tighter stitch. As we all know, I wouldn't be able to do that after my last experience with Bernice.
She took the bear and Romeo would not leave her side. He wanted his bear back, he didn't care about the hole. They do say, Aussies protect their flock.
"Oh Aunt Shann, hurry up and give me the bear! It's killing me!"
"Oh thank you, thank you".
We had such a fun time. We are ready to go back. Romeo too.

I had no idea what to do. I tried calling my Sister and she didn't answer.....rats! I found the manual and decided to follow the instructions. I figured out I should leave the thread from the bobbin underneath alone. OK, I can do this. I finally got her threaded (at the age of 40, I really need glasses now to deal with this machine and that itty bitty eye on that needle). I grabbed a piece of paper, hit the start button and everything fell apart. She sucked all the thread in and crammed it down under that hole thingy and all this extra thread started coming off and I got so flustered I couldn't even remember how to shut the thing off. While trying to dig the thread out I poked myself with the needle and started bleeding. This meant war.
So I did what every woman would do, I went to the frig and poured myself a glass of wine.
I named my little machine with the help of my Sissy. I cannot repeat the names I originally was calling her because this is a family blog, but after sharing the story (and some laughs) with my Sister she came up with a proper name..........Bernice. So, Bernice it shall be and if that chick ever makes me bleed again, she will be in time-out in the garage.
