Caturday Saturday

Hi everyone! We are joining Athena’s Caturday Art Blog Hop and The Pet Parade.

Joanie was so proud of her Nutcracker performance that she had me make some art with it with whatever program was built into our computer.

Tomorrow we will have our photos with Santa, even Mrs. Potato Head sat on his lap.

My answers:

  1. Every Christmas, I watch the Dr. Who Christmas Special with my hubby. This year it won’t be on until New Year’s Day and I am miffed.
  2. The day after Christmas, I go out shopping for half off wrapping paper and other supplies.
  3. “Twas the night before Christmas, and our house will be filled with loved ones while the kitties will be safely locked in bedrooms.
  4. All I want for Christmas is everyone ( 2-legged and 4-legged) to be happy and healthy- I know that is asking a lot.

Sammy was helping The Great One make catnip toys for Christmas. Joanie was on the other side of her supervising.

Thankful Thursday

Hi everyone! We are joining Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop.I am thankful for all the beautiful cards we have gotten through email and snail mail. I will display them all on the Christmas Eve post. I am truly blessed to have your friendship.

Here is our poem for Sammy’s Poetry Day based on this photo:

You always tell me to avoid a stranger,
always be aware of danger.
Now you want me to sit on this dude’s lap!
No way! I know it is a trap.

Here are the Friendly Fill-Ins for tomorrow. Mom came up with the first two and our co-host, Lorianne of Four-Legged Furballs came up with second two.

1. Every Christmas, I ________________.

 
2. The day after Christmas, I ______________________.

4. All I want for Christmas is _________.

We will be showing our photos of the kitties with Santa this Sunday.

Here is one from 2016, Sammy on Daddy’s ( I mean Santa’s) lap and Phoebe on the back of the chair.

Penny’s Tips Volume 31

Hi everyone! I have the perfect tip for you just in time for your holiday entertaining.

Hey Millie, smell this!

Smells like rotten eggs.

Sometimes wine may still taste good, but have a sulfur (rotten egg) smell. If you still want to drink it, just wash a penny and toss it in the glass. The penny needs to be from before 1982 though because they are copper. The copper does something that makes the smell go away. Sorry, I can’t explain the chemistry part, I am just a cat ,an adorable one though.

Dad let me borrow a bottle of his homemade wine for this photo shoot, but I can assure you his wine would never smell bad. And I am not drinking any, Mom put my treats in here.

We are joining Comedy Plus’ Happy Tuesday Blog Hop.

I probably won’t get another turn on the blog before Christmas so I want to wish you all a Merry Christmas!

 

Mewsic Monday

Hi everyone! We are joining Comedy Plus’ Awww….Mondays and Mewsic Moves Me (hosted by Curious as a Cathy,Xmas Dolly, JAmerican Spice and Stacy Uncorked.) The mewsic theme for the entire month of December is Christmas music so we will be participating every week.

This week, I have some of my favorite singers and their Christmas songs. One is not famous, but she sure should be. If you follow Dezi’s World, you already know their mom has an amazing voice. If not, here is her version of Silent Night.

Next up is Frank Sinatra- I’ll Be Home for Christmas

Rob Thomas- New York Christmas

 

Amy Grant- Grown Up Christmas List-

Joanie traded in her tutu for a nurse uniform. Hubby and I both have colds thanks to The Great One. I gave her some honey cold medicine the other day and she said she liked it because it is bee flavored 🙂 Kids say the cutest things.

Here are the Friendly Fill-Ins. Please leave your link (at bottom of post) here or at my co-host’s Four-Legged Furballs. You can also answer in the comment section. Thank you to all who participate. I am hoping the lunky shows up, but WordPress changed the format for posts this week and I am still having a hard time figuring it out. If I don’t have a linky, my co-host will.

1. I really need to ___________________.
2. My favorite Christmas ( or Hanukkah) decoration is __________________________.

3. It’s beginning to look a lot like _________.
4. This time of year, I eat my fair share of _________.

My answers:

  1. I really need to finish Christmas shopping so I am not running around at the last minute.
  2. My favorite Christmas decoration is some lights from my childhood. They were missing for years, but I found them in the attic when we sold the house in 2003. (see photo below).
  3. It’s beginning to look a lot like Santa’s workshop in my dining room. That is where I put all the gifts waiting to be wrapped . I also get all my mailings ready in there.
  4. This time of year, I eat my fair share of sugar cookies. I love the ones sold at Barnes and Noble and they keep giving out coupons for buy one get one free so I keep buying them.

Joanie will be presenting The Nutcracker on Saturday. This is a photo from last year.

Thankful Thursday

Hi everyone! We are joining Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop.

Joanie is thankful that The Great One did not have her dress up in any costumes. She was too busy making these ornaments (close your eyes Grammie).


Here is our poem for Sammy’s Poetry Day based on this photo:



Crowds of people everwhere

buying clothes, toys and footwear.

Everyone wants to find a sale,

wrap that gift and get it in the mail.

All that is good and fine,

but let us not forget the divine.

Here are the Friendly Fill-Ins for tomorrow. Mom came up with the first two and our co-host, Lorianne of Four-Legged Furballs came up with second two.
