Christmas Eve

Unfortunately, all three of us got REALLY sick right before Christmas and were still down and out throughout the holiday. I was so happy that Tay got better in time to enjoy Christmas Day with her dad. We did manage to muster enough energy to open presents the night before and set out a few things for Santa...I'll share more about the extra special Santa letter soon. For now, here are a few pics of Tay in action...

Decked out for bed in her new jammies and slippers


They light up when she walks - too funny for words :-)

Three Lounging Pups

During the time I was off recovering from surgery, the puppies were truly in hog heaven as they didn't have to go outside in the cold. Perhaps they got a bit too comfortable, though, because one day I came out of the bathroom after taking a shower and this is what I found...

Bo lounging on MY pillow...and wouldn't get up for anything!

Prissy sprawled across MY side of the bed...

And Perkie lapping up all of the lovin' she could get from her dad...

Think they were tired of me being home and ready to have Daddy Day again?

Merry Christmas from the Elves!

I tried several times to post our eCard directly to the blog but it wasn't ever successful. So check out this link but only if you're in the mood to bust a gut laughing:

Dreaming of a White Christmas

Yes, it has been a long time since I posted but I've had a good excuse - nasal surgery to fix my deviated septum. While I thought it would be a straight-up picnic, it wasn't and was much more complicated than even the surgeon had anticipated. That's all behind us now, though, and I'm back at work and we're getting into the spirit of the holidays.

I put out most of our decorations while Tay was with her dad on Thanksgiving and then she helped me "fine tune" then once she got back. I had to promise her that I'd post pictures on her blog of all of the Christmas goodness so here goes...just don't tell her how long it took me or I'll be in big trouble!

Tonight is her Christmas pageant where she'll be a "reindeer with solo" and "angel." I'll be sure to take pics because I'm certain they'll be adorable!

Merry Christmas to all...
