Let me give you a glimpse of holiday preparations here. It is nothing fancy, but very eco-friendly with my vintage ornaments mixed with some years of collected newer ornaments. The kids have grown to love them. It was love at first sight with me. I love old stuff.

|somebody showed up|
|they are like ants, but cuter|
|oh she is up to no good|
Start with some spiced dark rum, eggnog, whip cream, nutmeg and a vessel.
|that tattoo stuff is dark and crazy spicy|
|add whipped topping|
Especially yummy after coming in from feeding the animals in the rain. Warmed me right up. One of my dogs got to my beverage before I did, so I have to make another. I also popped some gingerbread in the oven, as I had a chill and gingerbread makes everything right in the world.
Tonka our dog opened some presents from under the tree early. He smelled candy. So, poor Sophia had to disobey her Nanny and was forced to enjoy her gift before the 24th. I remember having to wait... it was so hard to wait as a child, but we got to open the presents from my Aunt Jeanne on the 24th, Christmas Eve.
So tonight the new tradition is to fix your dog a cocktail and let them open you forbidden gifts. However, I am still sticking with elf appearances, comfort foods and remembering more simple times.
Happy Holidays, Ya'll.
