"the word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. we have seen his glory, the glory of the one and only, who came from the father, full of grace and truth."

so - off to n/p's house we go -
there is a slight hitch in our get up
the previous night a storm blew down a section of our fence - and who's going to work during the holidays? yeah - that would be no one
- so -
the puppies came for christmas and n/p's!!!!
 they thought we should have left those boys at home!

but we made it
and n/p's house was all decorated and filled with christmas joy!

as is our tradition
we had a birthday party for Jesus on christmas eve
we began with a scrumptious steak dinner...

then papa read about Jesus' birth from the bible....

then we all donned party hats....

iced our cup cakes.....

and sang happy birthday to Jesus

then it was off to bed so santa could come.....

i'm as surprised as you are that the boys did not get a sack of coal!

here they are -
in the wee hours of the morning
ready to see what santa brought their naughty selves!

sweet!! an airsoft gun so i can shoot my brother - the squirrels

i can't believe it!!!! i got my pocket watch!!!!!

then it was time for christmas breakfast....

and checking out our new christmas stuff....

oh yeah - and playing with our uncle boo....

after lots of playing and lots of napping it was time for christmas dinner
molasses and pineapple baked ham.....

then it was all over and it was time to go home....
the boys stayed with n/p so the puppies had more room on the way home
they were glad we left those stinky boys!

we arrived home to see our house like this!!!!

it was a joyful, memory making time
i am blessed to have this time with all my family
merry chirstmas to you all
and i wish you a
very blessed year!

now for the story of little red locks

once upon a time
because that is how all good stories begin
a very tired, over worked and terribly busy mama bear came home from working a full day with preschool cubs to find that....
someone had been eating her cereal!
well - humph - said the mama bear and she started her way through the kitchen to find that...
someone had been sitting on her bar stool!

well - harumph - said mama bear and she headed out of the kitchen into the living room to find that...
someone had wondered through the house and into her bedroom!

well - bah humbug and growl - said mama bear as she left the living room and went into her bedroom to find....
little red locks in her bed playing with daddy bear's i*pad!!!!
so mama bear snatched little red locks up by his little red locks and smooched and smooched him
then she said
go pick up all your crap!
and the all lived happily ever after
because that is how all good stories end
