Winter arrived today


Winter is here all of a sudden.

And the Thanksgiving things get put away tomorrow.

Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday, so I’m a bit sad.

However, winter and Christmas bring their own delights. I love the sound of Christmas carols throughout the house and crackling fires in the fireplace and drinking eggnog out of snowman mugs. And maybe the chance of zinging a few good snowballs on the sly, until Eric and Trixie gang up on me :)

Ready to go shopping?!?

TT57The strip this week is based on our annual tradition of taking our dogs to pick out their own Christmas presents. The first time we took Trixie on this outing in 2008, she was just over a year old, and she seemed a bit overwhelmed with having free reign to pick up anything she wanted. She got over that pretty quickly!
