Birthday & Christmas

Popster has a birthday a few days before Christmas but Dani always has a  party for him.  This year it was a brunch with so many goodies to eat
LiLi is getting really good with her cards & everyone gets their own special one for birthdays

Mark made the wine bottle/glass holder

Christmas eve we opened gifts with Jess as she was working :(

We got our signals crossed so didn't make it over to Mark's house Christmas morning.   We opened presents with tham when they got to our house at lunchtime 

I had printed & framed some Beatle's lyrics for LiLi & I think she liked it!

Gilly had more fun with the wrapping paper

Merry Christmas to all


A little leaf clean up & Christmas decorating

The beginning of December is starting out a little milder than November was.
Jess & I took advantage of a warmer day to take some pics of the dogs for our Christmas card.  Theses are some of the out-takes.

They are a pair!
I also had fun decorating the porch.

We had enough rain & warmer weather so we were able to get out & do a better job of cleaning up the leaves.  It was very messy but we got most of it done.  I don't ever remember having so much snow before the leaves came off the trees!
Not sure if this is leaf blowing or snow blowing!!!!
I have decorations spread all over the sun room & Gilly is having a ball playing in them.

This is what she does all day long!

She also found the step ladder to be entertaining.....there isn't too much that she doesn't get into:)

I love putting this on the tree every year......the first ornament made by my first grandchild!
Okay, let's check out what this is!

Annual trip to cut Christmas tree

It was a beautiful morning to be heading out to cut down a tree.  We haven't done this in a few years but Dani wanted a big tree which are hard to find or very expensive pre-cut.

 The dogs were very happy to come along.....Jess had to work:(
 It was pretty warm out with enough snow to make it seem festive.
 LiLi thinks this one is big enough!

Mark is getting it started as she wanted to cut it down,
 Uncle Scott had to get in there & do it for her!

 Now she's trying to cut down our tree.
 Popster to the rescue!
