Beautiful Holiday

In spite of Michael's basement flooding yesterday, dogs trying to rip each other's heads off, forgetting ingredients for the nacho dip, Michael not realizing the stores would be closed so he wouldn't be able to get the sandwich rolls and burnt Brussels sprouts....we had one heck of a wonderful day! I hope you did too.

Matt, Rebecca and Moki fixing breakfast
Michael got his flooding under control and was able to get to our house by dinner. The dogs loved each other one minute and were trying to kill each other the next. I somehow forgot the taco seasoning for the nacho dip, but Irv found some at Walgreens of all places, and bought some small dinner rolls that worked for the sandwiches and the Brussels sprouts.....well, lets just say...they were pretty ugly!

Rebecca and Moki
Like I have always said, I don't get stressed over things like that. The dog issue is a bit unnerving, just because I wouldn't want any one's dog to get hurt, but they seem to work things out themselves as dogs usually do.

Chris, Tresa and Moki
Rebecca's little dog, Moki is about the funniest little dog I have ever seen. If the big dogs even look at her the wrong way, or what she interprets as the wrong that little 3 pounder growls and snaps and the dogs back off like she was a big pit bull. We have had more laughs over her BIG attitude this week.

Rebecca and Sparky
On Christmas Eve when Rebecca's flight was due in, we just kept hoping that the weather would cooperate and she would get here on time. Well, her flight from Grand Junction to Denver was delayed and she missed her flight to Chicago!! Thanks goodness they had added a flight and she got in an hour later than expected. The plane was almost empty and she had 5 seats to herself!

I have saved some pictures for other posts, but here are a few from Christmas at the Kroll's.

Nice fit

Have a wonderful rest of the day! Chat with you soon.

Looks like everyone had a grand day, especially Moki! It cracks me up the way she carries him/her in her shirt! Sorry to hear about the flooding but it sounds like Michael has it under control. Thanks for sharing photos of the day.

Thanks for inviting us in for the holidays, great photos! Tell Irv, Joe has had to go to Walgreen's just about every year...forgetting something is part of our holiday tradition. This year it was Diet Coke-guess who's addicted to caffeine?! Oh joy.

Hi Kathy!
I enjoyed the pictures. That little Moki is a sweet thing. She would be a fun little dog to have!

I'm glad you were chill about the minor burps. Things usually work out well.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

Sounds like you had a good time.... Little things going wrong just give character to the holiday, don't you think?

This year I forgot to pick up fresh vegetables for me and the ingredients for dressing! LOL We just moved around my forgetfulness and kept humming along.

I noticed nearly everyone is barefoot of in stocking feet. That's my idea of comfort and family--when you can run around in barefeet or stockings/socks. Thank you for sharing those wonderful pictures--especially of your lovely family!
