Christmas Croup !!!

Naps and bedtime are our only moments of peace.
It's as if we've adopted a little dog for the holiday week.
You can hear a higher pitched "bark" sandwiched by whimpers and whining during most waking hours in our home. If you've never heard the "barking" cough of croup, it can be quite the shock!!! I think we can safely say CoCo has mastered the EXACT sound a doggy makes!
Anyway, we hope there will be some more festive photos to come.
Until then, may I suggest the above position before settling in for a long winter's nap!!!

Cookie Decorating!

There were 8 adults at Rach's last eve to decorate cookies. What a blast!
There were so many fun cookies at the end of the night. Some were beautiful & artistic, others went with the "husky theme" and still a few looked more like a toddler's handiwork !!!
(and those we ate)
Anyway, below are my personal favorites!!!
Cute, eh? This was Keith's first attempt at decorating! Isn't she Fabulous?!

Laughed out loud!

Up to NO GOOD, I'm sure!

Opa & Oma !

Opa and Oma are visiting, so we've had all kinds of entertainment! We've been baking & Oma helped us finish the Christmas decorating... the tree is a little bare as CoCo thinks all ornaments are a "ball". Opa installed a new kitchen faucet for us... my personal favorite Christmas gift thus far! :)
I believe CoCo loves all the holiday dancing best!
She has the charisma to encourage everyone from sitting to standing! AND before we realize it, we're all dancing to the Christmas music!
"... the most wonderful time of the year!"
