Holiday Paws

December 4th

We spent some time with some very cute doggies during the holiday. May I present Voo:

Thanksgiving

He is all puppy. You are wise not to be fooled by that adorable smile. He is trying his hardest to shed those baby teeth and will shred your hands, if you allow him.

I think we may need another dog. I mean, are you kidding me with this cuteness? And while I want something giant and cuddly like this Voo-bear, D would prefer something smaller. Think, tea cup:

Thanksgiving

Oh, who am I kidding? I love this little Henry. Plus, I think I could sneak something this small to work in my purse…

Tradition Rising

Dinner, cinnamon roll baking, stamping and tag making: one of my favorite holiday traditions. And damn, if these aren’t the tastiest rolls ever. 
I so missed having girlfriends nearby when we, albeit briefly, lived on the East Coast. It is great to send an email early in the week and say, “Hey! Come over for a quick dinner and bake with me! Let’s craft!” and have friends show. Come to find out, letting a bunch of stressed women know you will provide  both booze and hot, sweet carbs might be the perfect bait when you need some girlfriend time.
Thanks ladies!
Note to self: next year, I need to double the efforts. There are never enough rolls to deliver.

Thanksgiving

Trond’s family is visiting from Norway for a bit. In turn, we gave them their first American Thanksgiving to remember. Trond and D could sit outside smoking cigars, drinking red wine, and talking about “football” and other European nonsense all day if you’d let them. So I did.

Also: why don’t we eat turkey more often? I had forgotten how much I love turkey. The way it makes the house smell when it is cooking, the leftovers. I am thinking about cooking one for us this week. (The gem photographed was cooked by other friends who attended.)

I hope your Thanksgiving was as happy as ours! And that you had as many lovely European men to charm with your cooking.
