SCENES AT HOME TODAY THAT ARE MAKING ME HAPPY

    My kids' letters to Santa, ready to mail
    My son asked for a Thames & Kosmos Remote Control Machines kit and my daughter asked for 2 princess dresses with tiaras... Wonder if Santa will comply? πŸŽ…

    Leftover Play Doh mess
    From last night AFTER they each "picked up" before dinner, I'll probably have to bribe them today to pick up the rest... 🍬🍬

    Busy eating Cheerios and playing games together
    Food and technology, the great peacemakers ❀️

    My 13 year old Boston Terrier, Berkeley, laying outside in the sun
    We live in Arizona so it's 70 degrees, definitely the best time of year here. Berkeley asks out to sunbathe every day. He has bad skin allergies, hence the cone and shirt. We almost had to have him put down a couple years ago, his itching was so bad and nothing helped and we would come home to find him all bloody, his wounds would get infected, and he was always miserable. It was so sad. Then the FDA approved Apoquel and he is SO MUCH BETTER now, but can't quite go without the cone. πŸ’•

    Our Christmas Tree
    We decided to put it in our family room this year where we spend most of our time, instead of in the living room in front of the window. Much more enjoyable this way. πŸŽ„

    Berkeley came back inside and found my lap to lay on
    He was our first "kid"... Now that our actual kids are 7 and 3 and don't want as many mommy snuggles, he is glad to have my lap back to himself. πŸ’—
