I don’t do ‘vignettes’. I just put stuff places. For instance I have one of my little trees on a radiator in front of the window with one or two other things sitting next to it; certainly not a ‘vignette’. I think that the cat thinks that I am lazy about such things so she went ahead and joined in…perhaps with her addition I actually have a vignette now :)
She also had input as to my cleaning schedule. For instance after putting some laundry away upstairs and then depositing some fresh clean kitchen cloths and a table runner on the dining room table, I was told in no uncertain terms that they were not for MY use that morning.
While these lovely Jingle Bells hang from each room divider, they are used for more than decor around here. Who could resist giving them to little kids to play with for awhile…my grandson’s been ringing these bells for years now :)
And now one of my son’s fiancee’s little girls is enjoying them too.
Kate has long straight hair. The kind of hair that people with thick wavy hair wish that they had. Of course she wishes that her hair was wavy or curly.
My son’s fiancee did something to her hair overnight that they call putting it up in donuts. Then Kate put a bunch of gook on her hair in the morning and combed it out. I was able to witness the result and photograph her, since there was a school delay due to the cold and she ended up here for awhile that morning.
She’s so pleased with her little curls and gook…I should get her a set of pink sponge rollers for Christmas! :)
Looking through old pictures I see that I had her posing in front of a tree in 2009. My niece had put a french braid all around the back and then left it like this in the end…
MOST ANNOYING TOY EVER!!:
My sister got this for the kids last year. It would be great if it just had the keyboard sounds. However it also has a portion where someone with a bad voice is singing dumb songs, many of them about cats ( it is a cat shaped keyboard ) and of course that is the part that the kids like the most. Ugh.
At least they both weren’t making noise at the same time that day…
While my son was on the 4-12 shift, I had Tallica his fiancee, and her children over for dinner, prior to them going off to Wednesday night church services. We had a big pan of lasagna, fresh Italian bread, and some gingerbread cookies that my grandson and I had baked. When I opened the tin of cookies, one of the children looked at the cookies in horror, exclaiming “They are brown and burnt!” ( Since they’d all been over to decorate sugar cookies not too long ago, I guess that they assumed this was a batch of ruined cookies. ) Little kids never cease to crack me up.
A few pics before they trooped off to church…
There is snow on the ground here and it is quite cold. It is hard to believe that it is not officially winter yet, as winter has been here for awhile now. Brrr…
Stay warm ! :)
