Merry Christmas ! ! !

Let there be Peace on Earth.


I hope you had as nice a Christmas Eve and Christmas morning as we did here in Wyoming. There were no worries about a white Christmas or wondering if it would ‘feel’ like Christmas here.

Christmas Eve we had a wonderful dinner.  Filet Mignon (!) and all the fixings. Our first time trying out this expensive cut of meat but oh, it was worth it.

Then it was time to open stockings. (At least that was what Patient Husband said).  But afterward when he said it was time to open ‘just a few’ gifts under the tree, I had to draw the line…

So a little contest goes on in this house:  Who can pick out the most unpredictable, craziest, and weirdest stocking stuffers?  PH wins every time.

Let’s begin.

Do I even need to go on?  Yes, we shall.

It’s supposed to help if you are caught somewhere and have to ‘go’.  “Like when you are running, he suggested”.


An astronaut light.  Because sometimes you just need it.

Actually I am quite fond of this little guy.


This yellow thing.


Aha.  Perfect every time.
I wonder if he got a slice-it-dice-it along with this?  Or if he bought two, did he get a Ginsu knife with it?


Toilet paper – also ‘to go’.  Pun intended.

I feel like my personal hygiene is in question.  Or maybe its just cheap stuff to buy…..

Now you know why I lose every year (in more ways than one).  Just kidding, PH.

I never know which picture will show up with my blog heading on Facebook.  I’m a little nervous about this one.


Christmas morning.  Big cup of coffee and comfy clothes.   I gave the dogs what I thought would be a considerate gift.  Doggie Sweaters!  I got the large.  It said it was for Labradors and boxers.

You might be able to see that the holes for the front legs are right there next to his ear.  Within seconds…..     the best turtleneck ever.

Luna appeared to enjoy her neck warmer too.


Don’t worry they got some very nice chew bones.


At my feet:

The living Room.      What?


Murray has figured out Jack’s spot.


But the boxes are much better:

I get you if you come near me.


We can’t have a Christmas post without all the Grandchildren across the country:

Alistair and Ahnika in New York:


Hayden, Hunter and Peyton in N. Carolina:


and Finnegan in Oregon:

We really had a very wonderful Christmas.
PH has left for a shift at the hospital tonight and I will pick up a little and then settle in for a long winter’s night.  (I couldn’t resist).


I do want to mention a t-shirt that PH got me.  I like the saying because of where it originated from, but it actually sums up a lot of my life……


And on that note, let’s all persist in finding happiness and giving happiness.

One step at a time,
