Went to Bass Pro last night to see Santa. Were the first ones in line but we waited over an hour and a half. We took lots of turns walking Violet around and keeping her occupied.

The big lake out back.Violet was very excited about 'geeses'.

Not one tear. No hesitation. She hopped up on his lap, gave him a hug and actually told him she wanted a bunny car for her bunnies to ride in. Then gave him another hug and a high five. Super cute.

We walked out of Bass Pro to an awesome sunset. Then had Mexican with Grandma and Grandpa. I think Chris had a good birthday.

Last night we made cupcakes for Chris's birthday. I rarely make cakes anymore because we throw most of it away. Making cupcakes is great because I can take half of them to work and share.

I gave Violet a cupcake to decorate herself. It of course had to have M&Ms and sprinkles.

She ate the whole thing.

Not exactly "manly" looking cupcakes, but Violet picked out the color.


Happy Birthday Chris!!

These are the only good picks I got. My camera battery was dead so I had to use my phone. Violet didn't say one word the whole time.


Chris has been wanting to make an arcade for about three years now. He finally started working on it over Thanksgiving break. It's already painted black. All it's cost us is the wood, buttons, and wiring. The tv was free from a neighbor and the computer inside is an old computer we had. The unit will hold Arcade games. Arcade, Nintendo & Super Nintendo games. A total of about 400-500 games.
The unit will have to live in the garage because there is just no room in the house. Plus everyone in the neighborhood can enjoy it if it's in the garage.

Willow, aka Will, Willomina, MissWillow.

Ivy-aka Miss Ivy.

Usually the tongue hangs out even further. It hangs out all the time now. Ever since she had a few teeth pulled last year. I think she's trying to compete with Mr. Winkles for cuteness.

Violet going to get chew-chews. The only time Willow will follow her. Violet loves giving them treats!

We're all getting over a cold and very lazy right now. It seems like everyone's favorite place right now is the bean bag. I love Willows expression!
