Hope everyone had a great Christmas. Mine was nice. My son and his fiance came in the a.m. and we had a nice breakfast - a delicious breakfast casserole, home fries, cinnamon rolls & eggnog.

Then we all opened gifts and just as we were about to finish the power went out. My mom's chicken wings were in the oven and half cooked. Crazy. So we quickly packed up and went to my aunt's and finished cooking her wings and my spinach squares.

I had fun seeing all of my aunts/uncles and cousins. We came home pretty early and zonked.

I just have to share a photo or two of cute little Reese, my son's dog. She looks like a reindeer but the headband made it even better.

This is the jacket I bought her for Christmas.

p.s. Santa was good to me. I got a Cuttlebug and some Shimmerz in my stocking. I got a lot more than that but those were the crafty items. Oh and Mrs. Clause ordered me a set of Label #1 Nesties that have not arrived yet. Hope he was good to you too!

Sounds great Michelle! We had a nice Christmas too. I cooked lots of breakfast food and baked lots of cookies. For craft supplies, I got a few new stamps, 3 cricut cartridges and some cricut cutting pads.

Happy New Year!

Sounds like you had a wonderful Christmas. I hope you guys don't loose your power again. We're on a well also, so I know how irritating that can be.

Reese looks adorable!

Love reindeer Reese ;-). Nice outfit!
Can't wait to see how you will use the Shimmerz and CB in your cards.

WOW! You are so lucky to get a Cuttlebug. We could not find one ANYWHERE. Yes, I had to go shop for myself and I started early! All sold out. Oh, maybe you bought the last one in the area? I have all these dies and no machine. Guess I have to wait.

Anyways, the dog looks great in the getup.

Sorry to hear the power went out, we lost ours for days a few weeks ago during that frigid weather.

Happy Holidays!
Are you still moving somewhere or staying put for now?

I'm late stopping by, but glad to read about your Christmas! Boy, you guys are losing power a lot this winter, I hope that stops soon! Glad you had a backup plan and no good food was lost :) I LOVE the photos of that adorable puppy baby, so cute with the reindeer antlers on!!!

Happy New Year!
