Now all we need is for the guests to start arriving. Just a few short hours to go and according to my Mom we still have a lot to do. ๐Ÿ˜‰

We’ve been working nonstop to get this place spic and span for tonight.

When we broke for lunch I had the biggest craving for pumpkin yogurt and gingerbread men.

I just can’t get enough of these little guys.

I topped the pumpkin yogurt with a honeycrisp apple and pom

Then sprinkled the little man on top

RIP Gingerbread Dude

I’m jealous Anthony already got to open a present early – a collection of Sam Adam’s winter brews from my parents.

I hope he shares!

We discovered this morning that Maddie’s spay scar (from October) looks to be infected. ๐Ÿ™

I spoke with the vet and he assured me the bump is more than likely a blister caused by the inner muscle scar rubbing on the outside scar or something along those lines. He told me not to stress and bring her in once Christmas is over. ๐Ÿ™

She doesn’t seem to be in any pain, but it doesn’t stop me from worrying about my fur child.

She is also sporting a fashionable electric fence collar to keep her in my parent’s large yard while she is visiting.

Better get back to cleaning. I shall leave you with a photo of something that makes me alugh everytime I walk through the door.

How nice! Does everyone get to sit at a table? We have tons of people for Christmas too but people spread all around.. kitchen table, dining room table, salon, living room, etc etc etc!

Merry Christmas Meghann!

Oh I love the decorations! Especially the snowflakes ๐Ÿ™‚

Have so much fun!

4 Stacey December 24, 2009 at 4:21 pm

Hahah doesn’t that gingerbread man kind of look like he has an angry expression on his face?!

your parents doorman definitely brought a smile to my face! enjoy all of your guests this evening!

The decorations and table settings are beautiful. That’s the best picture of Maddie I’ve ever seen!! Merry Christmas!

7 Amy December 24, 2009 at 5:35 pm

Wow, those are awesome decorations! And I can’t believe you get to wear that to run today. I am about to don some lululemon gear to go out for a run, but mine is all black and it covers a lot more of my body to keep me warm in the 30 degree weather in NJ! Oh well!

The house and the decorations look beautiful!

9 Rachel December 24, 2009 at 6:07 pm

Wow! The decor looks beautiful! I completely understand about Maddie. My dog, Lux, has skin allergies and I have to take her to the vet every month or so for shots, but I’d rather spend the money than have her be uncomfortable and itchy. It’s not cheap, but it’s what you sign up for when you adopt ๐Ÿ™‚

your house looks gorgeous! I am still SO jealous of all the people you are having over. Have a wonderful evening (and I hope Ant shares too ๐Ÿ˜‰ )

Hope Maddie’s okay!!

Love how your parents decorate their house!! I just wanted to stop by and wish you and your family a very merry Christmas! ๐Ÿ˜€

Cheers!

Aw, everything in your house looks so nice. Your childhood home always feels like “home.”

14 Evan Thomas December 25, 2009 at 10:16 pm

Aww I hope everything turns out fine for Maddie.

Your house looks beautiful!

Hoping Maddie stays healthy, I’m sure she’s fine ๐Ÿ™‚
