Christmas decorations ....

a few pictures of my decorations, which I love so much
I could not put a lot of things out due to you know who....
Khaleesi Rue!!

I even have to block the den when we ae
not home for fear she might would
knock my tree over..

here ya go......
cute little white church that sits next to my kitchen sink


den shot during the day....morning sun coming in on the tree



love my new Christmas pillows
I keep my furniture covered with a sheet because of my dogs. 


just a pretty bowl of ornaments
it was risky putting them on this end table but
so far, none have been broken



garland over the doorway in the foyer going in to the den


cute nutcrackers on the bookshelves in the foyer

Khaleesi Rue ....

I put a lot of pictures up on Facebook of my dogs
but I wanted to have them on my blog too

An update on Khaleesi Rue.....she is soooo sweet.
just a sweet little girl
and she is soooo naughty!! haha....

she loves to pull things out, anything and everything.
she doesn't really chew things up, just pull stuff out

she will knock over our hamper and spread the clothes 
all down the hallway.
Every day, she pulls any hand towels she can find down
she doesn't chew them, just pulls them down, haha

We do keep her free while we are at work. I block off everything 
upstairs except for our bedroom
and now with the Christmas tree up, I block the den off
I can only imagine her pulling the tree over, haha

A lot of people tell me I need to crate her but we just won't
do that. We are gone 10 to 11 hours every day
there is no way I can make a little dog like Khaleesi stay in a cage
that long. Especially with the other 2 dogs out.
so we just try to remember to put everything away

she's a funny little girl too.....Pippa Lou always barks
when she sees people walking down the road. When she does,
Khaleesi comes running for you to hold her! 
same as outside, when Bella and Pippa Lou bark, Khaleesi 
runs to the deck....very much a little sissy girl

She is very entertaining, loves to fetch the ball
but she also is great entertaining herself.
she'll grab a toy and just run all around the downstairs
chasing that toy around, tossing it and then going after it

here they are waiting for Johnny to fix their dinner



this is us every evening....all 3 of them lay up in
the chair with me



Khaleesi looks a lot bigger than the other 2 but really she is
just taller than them. Her body is very tiny. I do think she will
end up bigger than them though once she is full grown
she is only 5 months old now



When I work from home I sit at the dining room table
and I have to pull out chairs for them to sit in with me



Little Khaleesi Rue is a great addition to our #teddybearpack
Bella warmed up to her first and they have become great playmates
Pippa Lou has taken a little longer but is now coming around and will
join in on the playtime.
We love her so much


later......

November ....

November came and went and no blog post!

It was a busy month mostly because I spent
a lot of time online Christmas shopping.

Trying my best to be finished with my shopping
by Dec 1st.

I almost made it.....today is Dec 2nd and I have
just 6 little gifts left to pick up. So I'll be going out
first thing tomorrow morning to get that finished.

It's not often I hit this goal but when I do, I just enjoy
the month of December so much more with not having
that hanging over me!

We had a wonderful Thanksgiving. There were 16 of us,
6 children and 10 adults.

So the first time we had a children's table

It was just a really fun day. I did half of my cooking on
Wed and the rest on Thursday.

We ate during half time of the Dallas game

here is the children's table.....I had little turkey crafts and 
coloring pages for them before dinner



and the adult table....which seats 10...perfect!


this picture just cracks me up.....Jake as always making
a crazy face but check out Avery Grace doing the same!



My hubby and I...all happy as we had all the kids and grandkids
at the house and everyone was happy.....and DALLAS WON!!


Declan and Gabe working on their turkey


Kayce helping Maddox with his turkey



Johnny and baby Lorraine



we have the 2 prettiest princess' as granddaughters






Our 3 beautiful children



we tried to get a photo of Johnny and I with all
of our grandchildren....this was the best we could get!


sure looks like Lorraine is trying to tell her grandpa something


hopefully I'll find the time to put some Christmas decoration 
pictures up soon.

We also had Thanksgiving on Saturday with my family
all 32 of us!! what fun we had
