Now It's Finished.

I added shadows ... can you tell? It used to look like this.

And I took a photo of it in better light, so the colors are more accurate. At least on my computer screen.

And now I'm happy with it, so it's done.

On to the next project.

I really enjoyed the painting I did recently for a friend of mine, so I decided to whip up something similar for us. Of course, when have I ever been able to whip something up?

So it's taken longer than I planned, but I made some progress again today.

Christmas Eve Checklist...

· Traditional apple cake for Christmas morning made.
· Craft to keep kids busy.
· Girl's nails polished in festive fashion.
· Holiday family photo taken.
· Attend Christmas Eve Mass.
· Pick up Chinese food for dinner on the way home.
· Watch A Christmas Carol - preferably the one with Patrick Stewart.
· Cookies and milk out for Santa, kids in bed.
· Hubster sleeping through A Christmas Story.

Yep, the checklist is almost complete. Santa should be here soon and then it will finally be time to sleep. Hopefully until a reasonable hour.

You've Been Coopered.

This is Cooper. He is a sweet-natured, cuddly bundle of cuteness.

When he's asleep.

When he's awake, he's a sweet-natured, cuddly bundle of curiosity with a propensity for finding trouble.
In other words, he's a puppy.

Luckily, none of the trouble has been unrepairable to date (currently knocking on wood). And yes, that's a toilet paper roll snowman. I got it at a craft fair a few years ago. The creator would dip them in peppermint-scented wax and then decorate them. It's fixed now.

And Cooper has minty-fresh breath.

Cookies, Basketball and The Mall, Oh My!

The girl made the cute gingerbread house at school and it's 100% edible.

I'm hungry.

And Rolos are my favorite.

And the marshmallow dog is so adorable.

Did I mention I'm hungry?
