Happy Holidays!

We have been having uninvited guests for dinner in the evening. The possum family visits our outside cat dishes every night, looking for food. We've fed an array of animals over the holidays - birds, possums, raccoons, squirrels, etc. They all ate well on Christmas Day.

On Boxing Day (day after Christmas) we had Fish & Chips, English tea, Spotted Dick (steamed pudding) with sauce, Kipling tarts and shortbread. We opened poppers. Next year I think we will make our own. These were unremarkable in spite of their cool outside appearance.

The kittens were thrilled with Christmas. Here, Mr. T. "helped" me decorate a wreath.

Tiger Lilly was enthralled with all the wrapping paper!

Rich, the recycler, found another use for his wrapping paper. Pope Richard?

Damien got a bigger kick out of pretending to open Becca's Victoria Secret bag - she received a lotion set from there.

I was sick so much between Thanksgiving and Christmas that Becca had to help wrap most of the gifts, so she didn't have too many surprises since she wrapped some of her own gifts too!

Tony, displaying a game he received from Pappa.

Here is Tony's display of his nutcracker collection. We put them all together on the piano this year. He has received more since this was taken!

Mr. T. enjoyed all the nutcrackers and Christmas cards displayed on the piano. He liked to rearrange thing daily.

Merry Christmas!
Happy New Year!
Blessings to you all!
