|Jamie is admiring all our Christmas decorations with lots of "ohs." We purposely put out decorations at his level that we didn't mind if he played with them.|
Weather: Windy and rainy. Weather reports for a storm. We got up on Saturday morning and hurriedly made a pot of chili to bubble all day thinking if we lost power we could always use the stove top on our gas range. Bad weather never materialized unless lots of rain is considered a storm. The good thing about this is we have a big pot of chili ready whenever we feel like eating!
Hamilton Christmas-themed Parody: Hamildolph by Eclipse 6. So fun and quite good.

Homemade Cranberry Bliss Bars. Not as good as those we've had in the past at Starbucks, but we haven't been able to get one there this year, so I made them. The only problem, the recipe called for a tsp of orange flavoring and I think my old bottle was off, making them taste a bit funky. Next time I will make it with orange juice or a teaspoon of grand marnier. In fact, I tossed out the bottle of old orange flavoring so I'll be forced to use something different.
|A real 'groaner.'|
|This one is hilarious to me because I live with a guy who has to park perfectly!|
|This one wins for funniest of the week. Ha ha! (Don't miss the plexiglass barrier.)|
|What? Is this possibly real? If so, it's a clothing maker with a sense of humor.|
