A little holiday cheer...

 Straight No Chaser performing the "Christmas Can Can" - not the kind of holiday song that puts you to sleep - the kind that makes you grin 'til your face hurts.

A craft you can squeeze in before breakfast...

I added a few more holiday decorations to the house this week, including a craft so easy a kindergartner could do it...

Simply, Mod Podge a printed holiday saying to a painted white wood board and you're done.

The Dreaded Delivery Man...

Roxy's one of the friendliest dogs you'll ever meet. But if you have drive a big brown truck it's best to stay off our street. The second Roxy hears the UPS truck turning into our neighborhood she goes ballistic. And when she sees it driving down our block she throws her 85-pound body at the living room window hoping sooner or later it will break giving her easy access to her arch enemy.  For some reason she can't stand the guy. Not sure if she's just protecting our neighbors from the strange man who runs up to their house with large objects in his hands or if she just hates his outfit. Funny, she doesn't seem to mind the Fed Ex dude...must be the uniform.

Holiday Obsession...

It's official. I've turned into one of those moms who pulls out Christmas decorations before Thanksgiving dinner is even over. By the time anyone helped themselves to a second plate of turkey last week I had already planned out the holiday look in my head then dressed up the house the very next day. Good thing I'm not into blowup Santas or our front yard would be nothing but plastic...
