Day 25 December Photo Project

A Kelly Rae Roberts angel girl from Mom. Words to live by.

I made it! Took all the pictures although I posted them late.

Day 24 December Photo Project

Festive nails.

Day 23 December Photo Project

While at a garden shop I found two owlies that could've come home with me!

Day 22 December Photo Project

Hanging at Lollicup until it was time to pick up Heide at DIA.

Day 21 December Photo Project

This little Santa Dog kind of annoyed me. It didn't seem to be a working dog as usually they have special vests and aren't clothes shopping at build a bear. It feels disrespectful towards those who actually need their service dog!

Day 20 December Photo Project

Yup... But does your husband wrap presents? :-) Alex has wrapped most of our gifts this year. He must have more Christmas Spirit than I do.

Day 19 December Photo Project

All bundled up! It was so cold on Wednesday. I made sure Ali was in enough layers to brave the cold weather. Ali, Alex, Buster, and I are all housemates. I've known Ali for 6 or 7 years now and we've gotten to be like sisters.

Day 18 December Photo Project

I think this is the last year for our Charlie Brown tree. The branches are kinda wonky and falling apart but we made it work. We got it last year as a hand me down from my Mom. Alex decorated most of it while I worked on craft show stuff. Ali added her special ornies and the Angel at the top! Alex was amazed at the number of Pooh ornaments I have. Each year for as long as I can remember my mom has gotten me a new Pooh ornie from Hallmark. Lets hope she doesn't forget this years. ;-)

Day 17 December Photo Project

Ok so, Monday we went a lot of places and did many things but I failed to snap any pics. Thankfully somedays I take more than one! This is my favorite house on Monaco. We call it the Gingerbread House.

Day 16 December Photo Project

We celebrated Chloe's first birthday on Sunday. I can't believe that baby is one!

My SSS arrived a week ago but I've been so busy getting ready for the craft fair I haven't had much time for anything else especially with work. (That Snowman pillow is from last years swap.)

 My SSS gave me a lot of neat things! I received 4 skeins of fluffy yarn, a couple candles (that smell amazing!), a few packets of hot chocolate, some butterfinger candies (that my husband mostly snuck from the stash), kitkats, a cute heart keychain that says I love my dog and a seashell and star fish.

My SSS is from Florida so the shell and star fish is very fitting.

Thanks Florida SSS!  I love it all. :-D

I almost forgot about the bones.  Buster loved them! Thanks again.

Day 15 December Photo Project

On Saturday we had a booth at TPO Wiggins Craft Fair. It was fun and a learning experience for all of us.

Day 14 December Photo Project

One of my favorite Christmas cards this year came Friday morning from my two favorite little girls. :-D

Day 13 December Photo Project

Shake it out, shake it out.

Buster was one stinky dog! I take him to the Wag Shop to bathe him. This location is self serve but they provide you with everything you need which makes it extremely easy.

Day 12 December Photo Project

If you have dry chapped skin you need to get yourself a jar of this stuff! It's not greasy like eucirine cream and absorbs extremely well.

Day 11 December Photo Project

Like sands through the hour glass... Filling up the jar with Spice Tea. This stuff is so yummy!

Day 10 December Photo Project

Easy Shepard's pie. I've made this recipe once before and it was a hit. Had all the ingredients so I made it for supper. Yum!

Day 9 December Photo Project

I love buying quality handmade items. The Denver Handmade Homemade Market has a market once a month for members. It's not exclusive (anyone can go if they sign up!) but they have to set it up in a way to keep costs down for everyone and it can be regulated. I picked up this tree skirt made by someone's granny for our tree at home.

I just received my Secret Santa Soiree box today!  My Elf lives somewhere in Florida.  If you're reading this SS, I'll be opening it soon.  I can't wait to see what you've picked out for me. :-D

Day 8 December Photo Project

This guy is my faithful partner in crime. He loves me in a way only a dog can. Buster is a people dog. He's always ready to go for a ride or walk around and meet new friends. He was rescued from a last chance shelter. Can't imagine my life without him. Love you Bubby.

Day 7 December Photo Project

Friday Date Night!  Almost every Friday night Alex and I have a date.  Sometimes it's as simple as fast food or other date nights go to a local eatery.  I don't know how many times we've been to Annie's Cafe but it's one of our favorites.  As long as I can remember they've brought out these two cute fellows at Christmas time to greet you at the door.  If you're ever in Denver you should try this place out!

Day 6 December Photo Project

Love my green KitchenAid!  It makes creaming butter and sugar so easy.  I made the dough for the best sugar cookies ever!  You have to let the dough get cold before rolling them out so I saved baking them for another day.

P.S. I haven't skipped a day taking pictures I just was too tired after our Friday Date Night that I didn't post anything yesterday.

Day 5 December Photo Project

Snapped this pic quickly at a red light. I looked over and saw several people on top of the DCPA. Maybe they were doing roof repairs or cleaning. I saw window washers at the very tippy top this afternoon. You must have to have a good sense of adventure to have a job like that.

Day 4 December Photo Project

 Finished garland for my SSS swapper.  I added some glitter and started to place them on the ribbon but then thought how is this going to ship nicely?!  My solution was to put them all on the ribbon together and then wind the rest of the ribbon up so I could wrap it.  I hope she enjoys everything I sent.

Day 3 December Photo Project

Those red bags of andes peppermint crunch chips were sure hard to find! We looked in three different stores around town on a busy Sunday afternoon before giving up the search. Monday I was determined to find some. Finally found them in a Cost Plus World Market 15 miles from me. The one closer was sold out! Last night I made peppermint crunch popcorn with them. So yummy.  I made two batches.  One with peanuts, pretzels and m&ms and another batch with just m&ms so our housemate could enjoy some peppermint popcorn.  She has a disability called cerebral palsy and can't chew nuts very well.

Love is your husband driving very out of the way to your favorite soup and sandwich place to get you some supper after a long drive home.

Still here!

I've been busy!  Other things taking up my time other than blogging.  My New Year's resolution should be to blog more.  This time of year is always so much fun.  :-)
