Seasonal Snaps

Yeehaw to a New Year!

Adventures in dual driving on the short trip out to my parent’s house on Christmas Eve…

Ted is such a control freak

Ted is such a control freak he had to help steer, naturally.

Where were welcomed with holiday delight…

What makes the holidays go 'round

What makes our holidays go ’round

And played our favorite dice game of Left Right Center.

Good luck charm

Ted’s thinks he’s my good luck charm.

Must be included, of course

But even with his help I was nothing but a winner in the cocktail department.

If you blow (or in my dad's case spit) on the dice, it brings better luck...

If you blow (or in my dad’s case spit) on the dice, it supposedly brings better luck (and disgusting game pieces), as he was the big winner.

We carefully selected cookies to leave for Santa (you know he only ate the pink ones).

This was my supper plate

Teddy had to be coaxed out of bed Christmas morning with a little Merry Christmas ribbon and promises of cat nip under the tree.

with our favorite christmas bow

And I had to be coaxed out of my slumber with a mimosa, which took all of two seconds.


Ahh…Christmas mornings taste so good!

Of course all of the Christmas commotion was taking attention away from Ted, so he sat right in the middle of the unwrapping action.

Nestled all in his tissue heaven.

And then I had to try it too (although I looked like a fat, gigantic Christmas elf instead of a cute little fur ball).

Ted looked so relaxed, I thought I'd try

Nice try. Should have had one less piece of fruit cake…

After all of that rolling around in the trash, I had to get ready to spend my New Year’s here:

Yes, I was a very good girl this year, indeed

Yes, I was a very good girl this year, indeed.

Miami…what a hard way to bring in the new year.

I know how sorry you’re feeling for me.

  1. Everything about this post is hilarious – you need a sitcom! And you and Teddy are practically twins in those Christmas wrapping paper shots!! Sooo busy on the mani circuit these days! Please know that I make time for my fave glitterskullkittyalcohol blog (I read a few but you’re my favorite).

    • Awe, I love being a fave! You are SO busy with your Mani Cave updates, actual manis and guest blogging! If I ever get a sitcom, you will play the nail painting neighbor who co-signs on every stupid idea I think I must do with Ted. Deal?

    I love it! My cats do the same thing with the wrapping paper. We have Christmas traditions-Crash must sit on at least one box and Muffin must climb in the trash bag of paper scraps. Crazy cats!
