Christmas 2008 Continued

Christmas 2008

We have had the most magical Christmas thanks to the weather. It has been so much fun watching the Grandchildren play in their first really big snowfall. I had a difficult time narrowing my picture selection. I hope that you all had a wonderful Christmas and enjoy our pictures!

What's Up With Us?

Not much. We had a great Thanksgiving feast at our house. Everyone was here minus Ashley and Ryan who went to Gig Harbor to be with Ryan's family. The halls are decked, the tree is trimmed and no, the shopping is not done. Thanks to Aaron we have a fair amount of lights this year. FYI for those who don't know, the 2 new children added to our list of grandchildren belong to Adam's girl friend, Layna. They are Solill and Gabriel. We wish all of you a very peaceful holiday season. I'm wishing for the same!

Meet "the other pets"

Ever since I posted the picture of Fraiser Pete I've heard nothing but complaints because the "real pets" have not been blogged yet. So I present to you "the real pets" of the Nichols home. This is queen Lucille.
This is Fricka, (daughter of Queen Lucille).
These are our pets in the back yard.

This is Superman "Wil"
"Cat girl" Rane
Solil and Gabe (I forgot the names of their characters)
Taylor the "Witch"
We had a great Halloween. The weather was so mild and the rain held off for us. The kids all went Trick or Treating then we met at Great Grandma's for Cider and Sweets.

Oh no, I'm so nervous. Britt tagged me for quirks, but I'm not sure what they are (even though I just read hers). Oh no, Bob said I don't have any. But let me try.
1. I have to put my hair in curlers before I straighten it.

2. I can't make 2 of the same colored food items for dinner. (Everything has to be a different color.

3. I will not go out of the house without earrings on.

4. I have to vacuum the house clockwise.

5. I can't put my lipstick on while the car is running, I always wait until Bob turns it off and is ready to get out and is standing with the door open. (he hates that one)

6. I have to wash the dishes before I put them in the dishwasher.

There you go.

Meet "Frasier Pete"

The newest member of our family is Frasier Pete. He replaced Stuart who passed away last spring. Stuarts passing was sudden and untimely. He was very friendly and we miss him still. So now we have Frasier Pete who's furry appearance makes him look as though he is wearing a skirt. He is addicted to his wheel, grouchy and bites. We miss Stuart.

Can you believe it!

I have been wanting to create a blog for months now and didn't quite know how to begin. So now you all get to be annoyed by my brag book. I can't believe that we are heading into October. We have been busy cleaning and playing catch up around here. (Bob and I played all summer, so we are behind in our chores). My goal is to share what's up with us and for me to test my creative side. Thanks to Brittny, Lynda and Hannah for inspiring me.
