Call me crazy!!!! Crazy, crazy, crazy! We got the kids a puppy Saturday! Why oh why?!?! We have been talking about it for while now, we are gone alot with all the kids sports so we wanted to get a friend for Echo so he wasnt so lonely while we are gone. I really wasnt thinking a puppy though! Well, Mocha is now part of the family! She is a shepherd/terrier mix & shes a little bundle of fire! She definetly doesnt take it when Echo gets in her face! She fights back. So far, things have been going well. I hate putting Mocha in a cage right now while we are gone, but she doesnt seem to mind to much. The kids are in heaven with two dogs. I have always wanted two dogs so I am loving it too! I just hope things continue to go smooth!!

Busy times!! Thanksgiving came & went in a whirl! Way to much turkey!! We had a super great time with all the family! Lots of board games were played this year!

Moving on to Christmas! I had everything decorated the weekend before Thanksgiving. I love to get everything up so I can enjoy it! We made the big switch last year to an artifical tree (yuck) but we had to. We always get a 13 foot tree & 9 foot around for our great room. It got to be such a pain having to use Chucks weights to weigh the thing down & to have the neighbors come over to help put it up. This tree is just as bad though! Its 14 foot tall & Chuck struggles to put the top on it! Oh well, what are you going to do??!! Victoria has started a bad habit with the dog & the tree, she thinks its cute to put a candy cane on the bottom & watch Echo get it off. Wont be cute when he knocks the whole tree over. In this picture, he is waiting for a candy cane to appear!!

Most of the shopping and wrapping is done, cards are out & baking has been started. I try to bake something every few days. I love this time of year!!!!

I still have 3 gifts to finish. I am making a Vikings helmet cross stitch for our son, a Chiefs one for my brother in law & I took a picture of our first Husky & am stitching it for our daughter. Looking forward to stitching tonight & watching Christmas movies with the kids! The only day this week that we have nothing on the calendar!!!!

Hope you are all enjoying your holidays!!

Merry Christmas!!
