Christmas Rocked.

Hope ya'll had a holly jolly holiday- I know I did! Christmas morning was spent at my home with Chris and his parents over for breakfast. We made Martha Stewart's french toast, and I burned the bacon. Yes, have the girl who doesn't eat bacon try and cook it...... real smart!

In my defense, Chris wanted me to use his mom's bacon tray that you microwave to cook the bacon. I had never cooked bacon any other way than in a frying pan. Well, things were fine until I put in the last batch of bacon, and my microwave did it's job- perhaps too well. Not only did I ruin the bacon, but the tray as well. Oh joy!

The toys to donate- not bad for a college kid huh?

Dad opening the pug ornament, and Bailey warming up her laser vision...she thought we still had bacon to steal.
Monkey, back from the dead! The girls DESTROYED their previously beloved Monk-Monk so dad found another one. They were overjoyed...then they got about fifty more chew toys and were onto the next thing to munch on.

Most random gift ever! That red pug lookin' thing in my hand is actually a handbag! Bailey wanted to meet her new buddy. Vanessa, Chris' mom saw this and had to get it for me!

Vanessa and Chris (wearing the new sweater I got him!)

Dad and I didn't plan to match- it just happened that way!
Pugs say hello and Happy New Year!

Chris and I headed to Balboa park last week- those are my new earrings. Hand made glass beads in San Diego- very cool!


Andy, Beth and Jennah, too! said...

Chris' mom is soo cute... and I'm so glad she got you that pug purse... that's the one I told you about that we saw in Macy's in Monterey!! I love the picture of you and your two babies... and the one of you and your pa is priceless. I don't think I've seen him with a bigger smile!! Love you miss you!

You need to frame the picture of you and the pugs! You can never have enough pictures of you and you're babies around the house! Just ask me. Didn't I tell you that dogs were addicting! I'm still asking Steven for another one...but of course he puts his foot down at four :(

HAHAHA Why do people always ask the vegetarian to cook the bacon??? When I was down in LA for my uncle's funeral, my mom and I decided to make breakfast for everyone the next morning. What do I get assigned? The bacon. Of course I burnt it. It was beyond charcoal. LOL. People should know these things!
