Last two weeks of December in pictures

Our Christmas tree at home.
Michelle and her fiance Bryan.
Our two dogs play-fighting.
Same here.
Christmas tree at my brother's house on Christmas Eve.
After we ate, all gathered around the kitchen bar for a look at my brother's gun.

Opening presents--Sarah got a Cabbage Patch with baby.
He likes the green!
Ooops! Labeled the packages wrong--Margaret got John Michael's and he got hers.

Finally got the right one!
Trying out the suncatchers. This kept them busy and quiet for quite some time.
Megan, my oldest.
Benji (fiance), Megan, and John Michael
Working on the yarn!
Christmas morning at our house. Sarah's opening presents.

Megan and Benji came over early to open presents with us too.
Sabrina is eyeing the treats that were in her stocking.

The dogs have to be in the middle of everything.

Sarah is trying to give some treats to one of the cats.
Benji got the jacket he wanted from Megan.

Lillian Grace, the great-niece.
Benji is feeding her some custard.

Had to take a picture of the brother-in-law's shirt. It says...I'm sick of being my wife's arm candy.
Lilli is watching Mom(Amber) open her presents.

My MIL, Lilli's great-grandmother, holding Lilli.
Chuck, my other brother-in-law, holding Lilli.
Dad(Shannon) is taking her to get ready for bed.
Rusty, sleeping in his favorite chair on New Year's Eve.
The cat, SiSi, likes to sleep here also, when the dogs aren't in it.

Last post of the year!

Since it has been over a month since my last post, I decided I needed to catch up on everything. We had a good Christmas and there has been no school since Dec 15. The holiday is almost over and I really don't want to go back to work, but then again I kinda miss it too. I must upload pictures from my camera so I can load them on here. Will do that later today! This is it for now. TTFN!

Happy Thanksgiving weekend!

It's been a very nice and productive weekend. Our Thanksgiving actually started last weekend on Sunday, with a dinner at my MIL's house. Then Wednesday night, my brother's family and our family got together at a restaurant for Thanksgiving dinner. On Thursday, it was just my husband, myself and Sarah for lunch so I didn't fix a big dinner. That evening we went to Megan's fiance's grandparents for dinner. That was it for the dinners for us. I just made some yummy turkey salad with the remaining turkey for this week. On the knitting front I finished and felted the two pair of slippers above and knitted up another pair which you can see below. I think it will be close but I might just get all the pairs made that I need. I thought I would start with the men's sizes since they are a lot bigger and take slightly longer to make.
Next you will see what our pets did this weekend with the beautiful weather. Here is Rusty out in the front yard enjoying the sun and leaves.
The "Queen" SiSi is staring so intently out the front door at a bird that she didn't even care when we set a silver bell ornament on her head.
Here is the "shy" dog, Sabrina waiting for me to notice that she wants supper.
This is the weird cat, Mittens. She spends a lot of time sleeping on one of our dining chairs.
Guess I'd better cast on for the next pair of slippers in red.
