Last night was the Annual Deluxe Tattoo Dinner Party. We all had a lot of fun and everyone tried something new. Much to Papa's disappointment I am much more an American-Chinese food fan than I am traditional Chinese food. Although I did like these cute knotted noodles in the hot pot. The pork intestines I can pass on. In attendance were the honorable Terry Tweed, Shawn and Stef, the new guy Sammy and his wife Katie, and you all know our nephew Josh and his wife Amy.

Gracie's grandma got her this adorable muff for Christmas. (It looks a bit like it has legs but that is just the Boston Terrier on her shirt.)
This morning over at Livin' Vintage she posted a wonderful vintage teddy bear muff pattern that is similar.

Houndstooth London Fog
Columbia Sportswear Plaid
I need a raincoat. I need a practical raincoat. I need a comfortable raincoat. I need a functional raincoat.
But I wish I didn't have to look so practical, comfortable and functional.
Papa will probably get me one of these. Which do you like? I lean toward the houndstooth and Columbia Sportswear.
Of course the Burberry...but I'm not sure it could stand up to the everyday life of a housewife.

We decorated pine cones yesterday. You can collect them, as we had these, or pick them up at a store this time of year. Yarn, ribbon and nailpolish were our choices to decorate with. I am sure there can be many more. Great for all ages!

Christmas time is here! Yesterday we decorated our tree. The more children we have the more "oops" we have every year. I am always sad to see them go -but never sad enough to stop using them. What we did this year with Dotty being just one year old is hung all the vintage ornaments at the top and the lower branches have newer ones. The ones Grace is using for eyeballs are from Target and although still breakable at least not as easily. They almost have a bounce to them when they fall.
Later in the day we got a head start on our baking. I wanted to deliver goodies early this year before everyone was sick of sweets. Solanah and Ruth's bff, Keziah, helped make cupcakes, peanut butter fudge and cookies. Then we made deliveries and drove around looking at Christmas lights.
