Oh, yeah. More Christmas decorations behind me. Another quilt on the chair back - and then see on the table? Let's get closer!
|Some No-No-Zimmie balls, a porcelain bell from Berlin, and a husky spinny thing!|
It's pretty cool having ornaments named especially for me - don't you think? The sled team thingy spins around on that pole! Davy knows how to make it go but I haven't figured that out. Yet!
I've shown you just some glimpses of the dining room. You could see the table and all in the pix of the Patriotic tree; here are a few shots of the hutch:
|Some of Mom's Christmas Naif Villeroy and Boch pieces|
Mom bought them in Belgium, Germany and Luxembourg
This shot's for our buddies Frankie and Ernie:
|Lennox snowman that our aunt and uncle sent us|
No need to thank us, pals. We know how much you love snowmen. Ha roo roo roo!
Speaking of "ha rooing" ... Mom and Dad had another Scrabble Throw Down going yesterday. Mom thought I was helping Dad, since I could see his board from where I was, but I was trying to send her a mind-meld message about what word she should play. Check it out:
|"Play it, Mom!!! Play it! There's an O you can use right up there on 'gout'!!!"|
I mean, seriously! There was an open O sitting out there in the open! She could have spelled "ha rooing" for a TON of points! Using all the letters in your thingy gives you 50 bonus points right there!!! She could have also hit a couple triple letter spaces! But did she listen to me?!?!
No. She did not.
I spent the rest of the game like this:
|"Fine. Don't listen to me! See if I send you any more great ideas!!"|
Sure, sure. She claimed the governing Scrabble computer wouldn't have accepted "ha rooing" ... but come on! She should have at least tried!!!
Happy Boxing Day to those who are celebrating it - and happy Boxers' Day to Casey, Cinderella, and all of our other Boxer pals out there! Right, Dave? Ha roo roo roo!!!
