Heeheehee - that's the Rockefeller Center tree. Ours is a bit smaller and definitely thinner. After all, we live in a crowded one-bedroom apartment. There's not much room to add in a tree!
Nonetheless, our tree is loaded with ornaments that Mom's collected from her travels. To the left of the San Francisco cable car is an ornament from Sorrento, Italy. There's also a hula dancer, an Alaska Eskimo, a Colorado moose, a Texas cowboy, a skier from Vail, Napoleon, Henry the VIII, pink houses from Bermuda and no fewer than 5 Eiffel Towers! And of course, Santa in a New York City taxi cab!
Mica and I got caught cuddling on the couch. We have NEVER done this, but hey, it was cold outside.
Mom couldn't believe her eyes so she kept snapping away. Shhh, we're trying to sleep here!
We've got our creche set up over the fireplace. Mom whitewashed our brick fireplace after the apartment was painted. You'll notice who got his stocking up, and in prime position for filling.
Our neighbor's granddaughter Liola came over on Saturday and she and Mom made our traditional Scottish Shortbread. Except Mom made the first batch with wheat flour and it came out too D-R-Y! I got one piece and the rest went into the bin. Don't mess with tradition! Our family recipe is very simple and very delicious - just flour, butter and sugar. That's it!
On Sunday afternoon, we went over to the playground to play in the snow! Mommy threw my orange ball (thinking that an orange ball would be easy to spot) and it disappeared into the foot of fluffy snow. (We did find it about 30 minutes later!)
I'm light enough I can scamper across the snow like a bunny rabbit! There was a big standard poodle named Duke there that I played with and he brought a tennis ball which was easily swiped!
This cute little girl was there with her Daddy. She was a quick learner when it came to throwing the ball for me!But all good things must come to an end! By the time we got home, the long hair on my legs and chest were covered with ice balls so....into a tub of warm water to thaw me out. At least it wasn't a full bath - just my legs. Still - the humiliation of it all!
