Merry Christmas

From our house to yours, we wish you a very Merry Christmas.   For us we spent our time together in our home.   We had a big spread on Christmas Eve. and both of the boys were here.   We ate and then opened our gifts from each other and those sent by our family.

We made our best attempt to get a family picture:

On Christmas day, we all played with our our new toys and put on our new shirts.   Candy cooked up an awesome dinner.   We had rib roast, cheesy corn, green bean casserole, rolls, pie, it was all awesome.

I guess the big gift around our house was our new dog Pebbles.   Pebbles is a three year old Fox Terrier mix that we adopted from the Humane Society.    We were looking for a small to medium sized dog that didn't shed and had a good temperament with people and other dogs.  We looked at several dogs, they were all very cute, but we opted for a little older dog.   So far things have gone very well.  Mable seems to be OK with the new addition.   It seems that Pebbles is already house trained or at least none of us has found any messes.

I have taken Pebbles for a walk every  day since we have gotten her.   I keep her on the leash and after about two weeks I may give her a chance off the leash.  She does pretty well and doesn't try to pull to much.  

Candy has been going to town with her crocheting.   She has made several stocking caps for me and the boys.   The most recent is her Ninja Turtles.    She finished mine today and as soon as I tried it on, I was ready to eat pizza.
