It's beginning to feel a lot like...

Oh my! Nothing like spending a full day taking photographs oh kiddos with Santa Claus to make you feel like Christmas is here!

Isn't this hilarious? 7 days old and staring at Santa!! 

Yup, that's what I spent my day doing! Taking loads and loads of Santa pictures!


This weekend we got to go to Mr. B's Aunt's house for a little Christmas time yummies!

Then it was time to clean and clean and clean and decorate our tree!

Mr. Doggie likes to have his picture taken. 

He loves the tree too, but is a good boy and doesn't take anything off of it.

but it's VERY tempting for him!

Wanna see some of my favorites? Let's have a look-see!!

Oh here was a new one! Just got it last night as an early gift from Mr. B, it wiggles and plays "I'm so excited" LOL!!!

This is one from last year with all the sweet little penguins hanging around the fire place.

Ah and from the year before Little caroling penguins.

Are you starting to see a theme? lol! yes, I do LOVE penguins and their cute little faces.

Oh! A penguin with a cookie and icing bag!! TOO CUTE!

 Oh what a sweet little angel penguin!
 And a fuzzy one with a snow cone!
Now the tree isn't done entirely in penguins, but they are some of my favorites! I'd love to see some of your favorites!

If I don't post again before Christmas I wish each and everyone of you the most blessed holiday! Take time to enjoy the time spent together, and eat lots of yummies! I want to see pictures!!!! ;)

My oh my! Tis the season!!

Hello! It's been many a day since my last post, not for lack of want that's for sure! Most days getting home from work to cook and do the dishes are all I can seem to accomplish ahhh "married life". Oh did you miss it? I guess I had been neglecting my poor blog. There is now a Mr. B- a very handsome one I might add.

I look at that picture and wonder how I ever got him to wear a purple shirt! What a lovely day that was, stress free too! I had decided early on that whatever happened, happened. Whatever didn't, didn't. It made wedding planning and preparation very pleasant and simple.

We moved two weekends ago in with my in-laws which makes no difference to me since I don't spend much time at "home". It's the holiday season and I work retail so I am working over nearly everyday.

I have managed to squeeze in some time to make some gifts but shame on my I wrapped them before taking pictures so I suppose one will just have to wait a wee bit longer to see the pictures!

I made my mother a blanket and a scarf, and my nieces all little sparkly makeup bags. I am working on a blanket for my brother and have made a bunch of scarves out of scrap. Oh! I also started a few amigurumi creatures, and have been buying used crochet books from the internet like wild! I have a thing for pattern books anyway to find them pre-loved and cheap is even better!

It's been cold and warm here, some flurries and some rain. None of the weather has been too drastic, but the doggie and I have decided to hunker indoors tonight with our crochet and some cookies.

 Chocolate Chip, White Chocolate Macadamia Nut, and Peanut Butter cup. This was half way through, I had 4 trays in the oven, and about 8 more to go.

Mr. Doggie wanted one so badly he was being so sweet but he got a doggie biscuit instead. I did at least give him a peanut butter one.

Ah, with the hubby working all night, and the doggie fast asleep I believe I shall work on the blanket for my brother and sip some peppermint tea. YUM! :)
