Had a great time Christmas Eve and Christmas with family.
This is Jack, my sister's dog

Jack doesn't like his sweater!

Sophie continues to ignore her Christmas present from Santa.

and now we are getting ready for some severe weather with an arctic front on it's way tonight.  I keep hoping it will get lost.

It's almost Christmas!

It's almost Christmas!

Most of the leaves have fallen from the red oak.
New nap spot

It's about to get really cold.
I'm all snuggled up and cozy

That's OK because there is NO SNOW in the forecast.

Nope - No Santa yet

Merry Christmas

Happy Thanksgiving!

I'm so thankful for so many things in my life, past, now and future.

I hope everyone had a safe and fun Thanksgiving.

BRRR - The Cold Front is Marching This Way

Well the weatherguessers were partly correct. A cold front did finally appear a few days later than their warnings. But so far? Yep, NO FROST!  It was supposed to be our first freeze 2 days ago. It's still not here.
Sophie all curled up napping
  But sitting here typing this, I can hear the wind rustling through the leaves that haven't turned yet. The Texas Red Oak may be just drop it's green leaves as usual overnight and they wither and turn colors on the ground. Yes, dead brown is a color.

Brrrr, the wind alone makes me cold!
