I have to say this was a great Christmas. My family was all together and it was just wonderful. I think that was really the best present of all. We had Christmas with my parents on Christmas Eve and it was so nice to just have everyone together and be thankful for all of them. Christmas morning was spent at my house we opened presents and opened presents it was fun. My parents came over and brought food which everyone was starving. Dale's mom came over about 4 and ate with us, which that was a first but it was nice.

Lilly has just been great. She's really a good girl. Louie has just been taken with her. He always has to know where she is at all times. She makes a sound he's there checking it out. He has been so cute with her. Now Lila she's like whatever. But Louie has been something. He's a mama dog in male fur. I can only hope everyone has had as great Christmas as we did.

I have to say I'm having a nice time at home. Yesterday I didn't even get dressed until I had to take Louie to the vet. He has thyroid problems and they were adjusting his medicine so we had to go give blood. Or I should say he had to give blood. For the first time he peed in their waiting room. I guess some fancy dog had been there and he just had to do it. He was up to 60 lbs too. I don't think the dog food is working.

When I got back we took Andrea's car to the shop to have it's brakes looked at again. They are starting to make noise or grab again. The only bad thing about having a bug is no one here in town want's to work on them. When we got back she put all the presents under the tree. This time with the small ones in the middle and the big ones on the outside.

Then last night we out to Outback with Bennie & Joyce and where we surprised Andrea went too. Use to be we were old and she couldn't be seen with us I guess College has made a huge difference to her about us or could it be she just wanted to eat at Outback..... Sure was good steak.

When we got home lo and beyhold, the mysterious bad beagle(s) had struck again. Now we know it's couldn't be Louie or Lila they are too sweet and good I'm sure they tried to fight off the bad beagle and protect the presents. Hmmmmm......presents were everywhere in the living room, one torn to shreads. Here a present there a present. I think we or Andrea rewrapped about 5. Some day we're going to have to catch that mysterious bad beagle.

If we had a cat I know Louie and Lila would say I swear it's the cat he did it.

Louie Man

Yesterday was a hard day for us. Louie Man had another seizure. He's been having them about every 3 months. I've talked to the vet about it and one of them says put him on medicine the other says to just watch him and if they get more frequent then put him on medicine. I've been through this before with a Cocker I had and the medicine cause him to have liver failure, so I'm really leary about putting Louie on the medication. One minute he was fine sitting with me which he usually doesn't do that and the next he was having the seizure. I guess he knew it was coming. Everytime he has one he always comes to me. I guess I'm mom and he knows mom will help him. Lila came running to help him too so Dale had to keep her away until it was over. They never last but minute but it seems like forever. I just sit and hold him and talk to him until it passes. You just have to keep your hands away from his mouth because he has no clue what's going on. He doesn't have them as bad as the Cocker did but it's never fun. I'm thinking of changing his food I've seen that Science Diet has one for itchy skin and he sure has it now. I guess I could get him itchy skin food and Lila fat girl food. They were really cute this morning the leaves are falling off the trees and they had to check it out to see if something was up there. I think they both would climb the trees if they could. Especially when the squirrel is up there.

And by the way HAPPY BIRTHDAY MOM! I know you say it's not your birthday but it is.

Early Day

Last night Louie had some issue and just wouldn't sleep. I think finally about 2 I went to sleep then at 5 I had to get up and take Dale to the airport. That was so early. I dropped him off and headed back home and to bed. First Louie was in bed then Lila. So I had 2 dogs curled around me it was really great. Now I know why I wanted a King Size Bed. They have really been being good here lately. Talked to Chan this morning she was doing great. Lilly slept from 10 until 4 this morning. What a good kid.

Chris told me today at work to plan the party again for next year. I had such fun doing the one this year till I can't wait. After today I'm off unit really January 2008. Now that's a first I think since I've been here. I can be a lady of leisure for a few days. Now that's a funny thought we know that wont happen.

It's been really busy at work and home. So finally I have a chance to put my thoughts down. The Car Club Christmas party was fun. And for once the food was great. I think I had the biggest steak I've ever had in my life. Here's some pictures from it. Everyone brought gifts and you picked a number and when it was your turn you picked a gift. Are if you wanted to steal someone else's you went and stole and they had to go pick another gift. As you can see Dale stole a gift. I got the Joyce brought and hid it so I could keep it. It was lots of fun.

Then to the computer problems we got several virus on the computer and I had to have someone come fix it. Now seems we may have to get a new one. And to start Dale was on a tear. But he's better about it now. Just took him a few days.........

Lilly Pictures

Chan and Thomas sent us new pictures so I have to post them. You can already tell that Lilly is getting bigger. Last time they went to the Dr she was a light weight of 7 lb 4 ozs and she's already sleeping all night. Now I myself think thats wonderful mine never slept all night at nearly 3 weeks old. I think it took Chan about 2 years to do that. So here's the pictures.

HES Party Night

I have to say last night was wonderful. It was a lot of work and I was so tired till I couldn't sleep last night when I got home. But it was a night of magic. The Turner Mansion was awesome. It was totally decorated and just beautiful. There were tons of people there and everyone thought it was great. We had 3 bars set up, Murrays catered, and LHS Orchestra played for about and hour and a half. The Chocolate shots were a big hit too. The Ice deal and the food were great. And the people that served and took care of everything I can't say enough about them. This was like a dream come true. I got to set up the party, spend what I wanted, and have it in a Cinderella house. For one night it was my house and my party. I loved every minute of it. We'll see what I can do next year......hopefully for sure have new shoes that don't hurt my feet!

Fun Weekend

This last weekend was a fun one. Andrea was home so Friday night we saw Enchanted it was different. Part cartoon and part real. But I liked it. It was fun getting to go with her. Saturday I did her hair so she could go to formal at Sorority. I have to say her hair looked really good. This is a picture of her an Ashley that's her big sister in Sorority and Ruth one of her good friends.

Then Saturday Afternoon we were in the Christmas Parade downtown Midland. I don't think I've ever seen so many kids. They were lined down Illinois and then down Wall. Tons of kids.
It was lots of fun. After that we all went to Cattleman's to eat. It's nice getting together with everyone. And yes I had a big STEAK!
