Christmas Delights

Hello Christmas Critter Lovers!

How are you? I hope everyone had a good holiday and didn't come home with a cold like I did.

I'm honestly looking forward to my boring and predictable New Year's Resolution of losing weight. Man, did we eat and eat!

First we had a Christmas brunch with the B family. Sis JB had big news! She and JF are now engaged!

Baby B was unsure about the lion costume.

Congrats sister J!

Photography hint: always position the baby to hide your double chin.

After driving to central Wisconsin in snow, rain and heavy fog, respectively, I was reunited with my budster GH, the Domestic Nemesis!

We hadn't seen each other since Labor Day weekend.

My sister L's sweetie, CC, appears skeptical about the W/S Christmas party:

I just realized I didn't take any photos of L and CC's new puppy!

The men huddled together to watch the Vikings game. Let's just say R stayed pretty quiet! (The Vikings lost.)

The ladies were having more fun anyway.

Who is JS calling?!

HS is on the phone, with my sister K and her boyfriend JL supervising.

My Dad and L share a moment. (Look how shiny her hair is! That's what happens when you stop dying it.)

Even sister A and T-Dogg's pup "Kung Fu" was festive in this little polo shirt!

Christmas morning was delightful as always...we even slept in until 8!

R's dreams came true!

You know you're in Wisconsin when:

T-Dogg is a big Brett Favre fan. Note "Kung Fu" in the bottom of the photograph, wearing the new doggy fleece R and I bought him!

We also had a great time with my Mom's side of the family on Christmas eve, and my Dad's side later on Christmas day. I don't think we took any pictures of these events, however!

Yesterday on our ride home we spotted hawks, deer, cows, horses, goats, buffalo and a dead fox!

More critter reports to follow. Have a great Friday!

DAAAAAMN, that's a cute baby. I also like that GH has your senior picture on the fridge. Or is that your headshot?

Also, I am tooootally looking forward to losing weight and exercising more. I know I could have started any time, but it's such a losing battle during the holidays. Plus if you approach the holidays with fatness, you get to enjoy a lot more fatty food. LIke the fondue I'm about to go eat.

Great pics! I love how you can put so many up! I'm a ding dong and can only put up 5.

Maven...while I know I should have Wendell's senior pic on my fridge...I'm afraid I drove over to the wilderness to hang with her fam!

Hope you had a good holiday too!
