Let us not forget the real reason for the season which is to celebrate the birth of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ! Happy birthday Jesus!

Kramer got another mouse on a pole toy for Christmas. He played with it while it hung from the dining room chair (see bottom picture) for some time. Next thing we know it is wrapped around the china cabinet leg. Go figure! Only Kramer could accomplish this!

All I wanted for Christmas was a lovely little bear named 'Hamish' by Catherine at BumpkinBears. The very first time that I saw him I was hooked! His sweet little smile and red fur were adorable. I asked for Hamish for Christmas hoping that he would be there Christmas morning. Much to my joy and surprise Hamish was in the last box that I opened this morning:) He is even more beautiful in person! So he posed for a picture with all of his new beary friends (they are the centerpiece on our dining room table). I have been collecting bears for years now but I must say that Hamish is one of the most beautiful. Catherine has a gift and a talent which is very obvious once you see the love that goes into her work. Thank you to my wonderful husband for the lovely gift! Thank you Catherine for your kindness and your artestry (and your ability to keep this secret without my discovering it)!

I house and dog sit for some friends when they go on vacation. I was with my two charges, Cheddy on the left and Charlie to the right, this week so we decided to take a Christmas picture together. Needless to say they weren't terribly thrilled with the antelers or Santa hats but they posed all the same:)

or is it? For about a week we had warm temperatures in the 70's until today when it dropped into the 30's. Brrrrrrr! The warm weather brought out the roses, lantanna, even oranges. Christmas is looking very much like spring around here:)
