A visit from Santa

Rona & Max enjoy treats and toys that were in their stockings on Christmas morning

Merry Christmas!

Maxwell & Rona check out the presents on Christmas eve - we don't put up a tree because I hate taking it down after the holidays are over.

Cluster Holiday Party

Our business office cluster celebrated the holidays on 12/18 at the University Plaza Hotel with a hot mexican buffet. The food was delicious and we had an ornament gift exchange. This is only a fraction of those attending.

Holiday Party

The Study Abroad office had a bowling party on 12/17 for our Holiday Party this year. Everyone had a blast! We were at the Union Rack & Roll in the Purdue Memorial Union.

Christmas at the Memorial Union

These are some photos of the Christmas tree and gingerbread house on display in the great hall at the Purdue Memorial Union. The tree was donated by a local couple - it was trimmed "down" to 25 ft tall in order to fit into the hall. The bottom photo is taken from the main floor, and the photo above it is taken from the balcony that is seen in the background. The gingerbread house is 9 ft tall, and you can see the kids love going in it. Apparently, every year someone tries to eat pieces off the house!! I loved the little gingerbread dog and doghouse!

More new scottie fabric at JoAnn's

I found 3 more scottie fabrics at JoAnn's on saturday -- one is fleece, and looks like the plaid flannel I have already posted. The other two are cotton fabrics designed by Debbie Mumm, and are blue and chocolate in color!! I will post photos tomorrow.

Rona is camera shy

Lately, Rona has been camera shy -- but I got these two pics before she realized what I was up to and turned her head away from me

Rona & Max play

That is my pink-slippered foot that Max is sitting on as he and Rona, who is sitting in my lap, knosh teeth and play - I have gotten a few nips from this sort of activity, and was really worried about my leg getting caught in the crossfire!

Maxwell's first snow

We had our first snow of the season Sunday morning -- it was also Maxwell's first encounter with snow!
Hey, what is the white stuff??
Sheesh -- can't a guy have a little privacy??
Can I eat this white stuff? Is it anything like ice cream??
