Me, Aunt C. and Cousin N. pose like Barbies!
I thought this was a cute phote of the men NOT wanting their photo taken, notice
Superman taking the photo in the mirror.
Aunt C. and the newest and cutest member of the family - Shortie. I think Shortie needs a more feminine name like 'Sassie' or something like that, don't you? She's too cute.
Here's Aunt C.'s mom holding Aunt C.'s baby Bailey. Bailey is a sweet little girl dog!
We got home at 2:30 Christmas morning. I'm not a late night person, but it was worth it to be with our loving and giving family last night.
Little T. made this one herself. She was disappointed because we used rubber cement to glue it onto paper and it looks shiny wherever the glue is. I told her we'd try again tomorrow and use Aleene's Tacky Glue. As you can see, this pattern is really simple: 6 open hearts, 12 S scrolls and 6 marquises. Check out this site for instructions for the shapes.
Enjoy the day -Wonderwoman
B - Baked Oatmeal
L- T.B.D. (to be determined - usually leftovers)
D - Spicy Turkey Stuffed Zucchini (using jumbo zucchini shells frozen from summer) and brown rice
The tree for miniature ornaments.
The school room tree.
The fruit and vegetable tree.
Whenever is snows, it's so quiet outside first thing in the morning....no birds...no cars...just peaceful quiet....and on this morning it was not any different...until -
...I opened the chicken coop door. New things are scary for people, nevermind chickens who are sure that death is around every corner. Our morning routine did not go as usual. Usually, I open the doors and they all come rushing out. This morning, a few stood by the door where there was no snow and the rest of them just peaked out in scary disbelief thinking, "where did the ground go?" (I narrate all the time for them - usually out loud.)
They pretty much are sure that all new scary things are my fault. Like the time I was carrying the Brown Umbrella of Death or the time I threw the Empty Feed Bag of Fright over the fence. Scary times!
"Where did my feet go?" say Butternut and Ixie
The ones who did venture away from the door only stood in the snow for a few minutes and then when one of them decided to fly like mad back inside - the others did too - squawking like mad.
This is the worst chicken feed she's ever bought!
It took four hours before they decided that there was no imminent danger and venture outside of their house.
"Mom, can you please OPEN the door?" Zoe & Evie on the back porch.
Even my herding dogs waited by the door to their house while I did the morning chores! How many days 'til spring?
Enjoy the day - Wonderwoman
I just ran outside to take these photos, but before I did - I put the bacon in the oven to wake up the rest of the house. This works every time. Nothing says lovin' like bacon in the oven!
This day will be a whirlwind of decorating, I'll post photos of the house tonight when it's all done. How is your decorating going?
Layer your crock pot as listed above and don’t stir. Other note: the liquid part should consist of at least ½ of it being beef, chicken or turkey stock and the rest can be water. If you’re using beef as your meat, slice thin and cook before adding. Cook on low 10 hours or high 6 hours.
