Dogs on Thursdays...DOT!

You better watch out
You better not cry
Better not pout
I'm telling you why
Santa Claus is coming to town
He's making a list
And checking it twice;
Gonna find out
Who's naughty and nice
Santa Claus is coming to town...

Have you been naughty...

or nice?

Happy Dogs on Thursday!

Whiskers on Wednesday!

Trouble is bound and determined to sit on James' lap!

Trying to keep Daddy warm!

In the meantime....Ms. Q-Tip is keeping the other cats away from the tree because she has found their presents. All day yesterday I kept hearing bells jingle and it was her playing with the kitty presents! So funny because she is 16 years old and acts like a kitten!

Have a meowyriffic day!

Had lunch last week with a friend (Lorraine) from Torrance and had a wonderful time. She brought me this beautiful skein of handspun she spun for me. It's just gorgeous! I've got to think of something very special to knit with it!

Then my fabulous friend, Nichole, made me these gorgeous mitts out of some yummy, warm malabrigo! Thank you so much! I love them!

In the Mail...

An awesome package was in the mail from my TN buddy, Dawn!
So many beautiful things where do I start....a gorgeous handknitted cowl (which is extra special because of her fibro pain I know how hard it was for her to do); an amazing skein of Socks that Rock (which I've never used before); cute needle gauge shaped like a Christmas hat; notepads which I'm always using; peppermint tea (love peppermint); Christmas towel; Christmas nail files which always come in handy because it never fails when I start to knit on something I need one to fix a nail; adorable ornaments; little bag that looks like knitting to hold notions in; a cute magnet; cross stitch ornament because she knows I need another hobby (lol), haven't done cross stitch in a long time which will be fun; and a beautiful silver candle! I just kept finding tons of treasures in the box! I'm such a kid and didn't wait till Christmas to open it either...she knows I can't wait!:) Thank you so much, Dawn....words cannot express what I'm feeling....your friendship means so much to me!

Dogs on Thursdays...DOT!

"Fish are friends, not food!"

Fuji got super hyper yesterday (as you can see by the tail blur)! Of course she grabs a huge toy that is way bigger than her and totally spazzed out!

Feeling the excitement in the air...and gearing up for fun times with family and friends! What are you excited for? I'll be glad to do some selfish knitting! Jimmy will say "time off from school!" Couple more projects still in the works to finish before next week....

10 on Tuesday

10 Favorite Holiday Shows!!

1. Elf....I can watch this over and over and over!

Buddy: You did it! Congratulations! World's best cup of coffee! Great job, everybody! It's great to be here.

Buddy: The best way to spread Christmas Cheer, is singing loud for all to hear.

2. Polar Express

The Conductor: Seeing is believing, but sometimes the most real things in the world are the things we can't see.

3. Charlie Brown Christmas

Linus Van Pelt: "And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night. And lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid. And the angel said unto them, 'Fear not: for behold, I bring unto you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. For unto you is born this day in the City of David a Savior, which is Christ the Lord. And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.' And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host, praising God, and saying, 'Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.'"

4. National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation
Clark: Yes it is, it's a bit nipply out. I mean nippy out, what did I say, nipple? Huh, there is a nip in the air.

5. Jingle, All the Way

Howard Langston: I'm not a pervert! I was just looking for a Turbo Man doll!

6. Home Alone 1,2, and 3

Kevin McCallister: You guys give up yet? Or are you thirsty for more?

7. The Christmas Story
Schwartz: Hey, smart ass. I asked my old man about sticking your tongue to a flagpole in the winter, and he says that it'll freeze right to the pole, just like I told ya.
Santa Claus: You'll shoot your eye out, kid.
8. Santa Clause 1, 2, and 3
Little Elf Judy: Seeing isn't believing. Believing is seeing.
9. Call Me Clause
Mama: That man looks like that Santa from years ago... no, can't be...No more eggnog for me.
10. Fred Clause

It's so hard just choosing 10...I love Christmas movies and start watching them the beginning of November....and sometimes through the year! I have a special section in my dvd drawer for them too!:)
