Our eventful week

The squirrels were taunting Amos again. A bird feeder is right over his head and they didn't even run from him this time. I guess they were hungry. He tried to get closer to them by getting in the flower pot. Still didn't scare the squirrels.

We started last week by celebrating my daughter's birthday. We gave her a pretty cross necklace. Happy 19th birthday!

Then the next day, we went to the Olive Garden for my 50th birthday. Here are Mike and I waiting outside the restaurant.

On Wednesday, it snowed. That is a rare occasion here in Texas. I caught the sun coming out about an hour later and it just hit the top of the trees before dark.

My nephew, who lives with my son, has a new puppy. He is half pit bull and half Rottweiler. They are going to call him King. Ace will have a playmate at his house now.

My daughter and I got the Christmas tree decorated finally. This is the aluminum tree that my Grandpa got when I was little. My Grandmother didn't really like it but I thought it was the prettiest thing in the world. Now I have it!
Our last few weeks have been hectic and stressful. Mike's dad is in the hospital but is much better now. Mike has been away from home a lot. The kids have finished the semester at college and have a little free time now. The weather was freezing a couple of days but now it is 73 degrees again. Today, we had a beautiful Children's pageant at church and I think it finally put me in the Christmas mood.

Thank you! I had a good birthday and am still counting on celebrating a little more when my father-in-law gets settled in a rehab center. He is still improving, so that is what is important. Happy holidays everyone.
