Santa's Cookies

It's getting close! I cleaned out my car last night and got Leo's large cage in the back seat. I was hoping it would fit and it did. I just need to put something underneath it to level it out and then put a pillow and blanket in there for him. This will be his second ever trip in a car. His first was when his daddy died and he came to live with me and PeeWee. That was a horrible 5+ hours trip home for us. That's why I put the cage in the back seat so I'll be able to drive. :o) I'm betting he's not going to like it but he has no choice. I want to get us there safe and in one piece.

I thought I'd post a pic of Kylie making Santa cookies last Christmas. I am looking forward to making cookies with her again. This time I think I will be participating instead of behind the camera. I'm going to make her mama take the pics. :o)

Today is our Christmas potluck at work and gift exchange.  I made a bowl of broccoli casserole and a bowl of cauliflower casserole. They were smelling so good last night when they came out of the oven that I wanted to dip in.  I can't wait til lunch!!  The meat is going to be smoked turkey that is out of this moist...from a place called Ken & Candi's right around the corner from work. MMMMMM

This is Victoria's scarf that I made all wrapped up. (The heart and star are NOT my patterns - I wanted to be clear on that)  I'm anxious to see who got my name and what my present will be. I told one of the girls the other day that yarn or a crochet book would make me happy!  I'm easy to please. I don't think a lot of people at work know that I crochet. I guess they'll find out at the exchange. :o)

Here's hoping that your little corner of the world is warmy and not too stressful in anticipation of Christmas. It can get that way real easy, real quick. Take a deep breath and try to enjoy your family and friends. Please remember those who are not with their families, can't be with their families because they are serving their country. Say a little prayer for them and their loved ones.

I'll try to post tomorrow but if I don't I hope you all have a wonderful safe Christmas. Much love to you all!!!


  1. Before I was even born, and I am as old as dirt, my grandma had a dog who would get nervous in certain situations. Her vet told her to give Peggy, at least I think it was Peggy, an asprin and it would help calm her down.

    So, all my life, I would give my dogs an asprin if I thought they needed something to relax . . which wasn't very often. It worked on all of them except Indy . . . she takes doggy sized valium for her anxiety to thunder.

    Drive safe, be safe and enjoy your holiday with the grand babies.

  2. Broccoli casserole sounds good! Kylie is just adorable. Cookie making time is one of the great things about Christmas. Have a great time and be safe. Hope Leo is not too stressed by the journey. Tends to stress me out in the car when my dog is stressed, it's a vicious circle!
