I wish everyone a very Merry Christmas! Have a wonderful day filled with blessings and joy. Thank you for your support by buying my books. You’re all much appreciated!
So my husband saw this wreath in the home and garden shop and he thought it would look cool in our front entryway. I was like–how are you going hang that way up there? He frowned at my lack of confidence. He got a tall ladder. Tall enough to reach the Empire State Building, and he climbed it and strung some kind of mega strength wire from point A to point B and he managed to get it up. The bells had to be added after the wreath was up. The overall affect is quite stunning. He done good!
That’s Cocoa sitting on the rug. And Molly is snoozing in the background on the kitchen floor tiles. She’s passed the dining room and underneath the four plates hanging on the wall.

We have a new girl at our house. Her name is Cocoa (Puff). She’s a five month old Yorkie and she’s been with us about a month. She’s adapting well and likes to play with Molly, my 12 1/2 year old Beagle. My Molly dog has been a great girl . . . and I was very sad to hear she’s sick. She’s got Cushings Disease and she’s not going to last much longer. I will be heartbroken to lose her. She’s been my best friend.

This is where Cocoa sleeps while I’m working. I have to remember to keep my feet still. She’s under my desk!
In honor of Christmas, I thought I’d do a fun contest. Just post a short essay about your most memorabl holiday gift. The contest will run until December 15. The winner receives a $100.00 gift certificate to Toys R Us.
In our house, my daughters first pick was always Barbies. They played them through junior high and would have continued if we’d kept a toy room in our new home at the time. I have bins upon bins of Barbies, cars, clothes, accessories, McDonald’s shop, airplane, etc. that I have kept for posterity.
