It was an odd Christmas this year for me. We did have snow, and lots of it. These snow photos were taken on Christmas Eve day.
Dana and Sasha (my MIL's little dog) don't mind it so much, if they only have to go out for a quick tinkle.
Whoa! That back door needs to be hosed off as soon as spring hits.
We are sure going to miss Sasha. She will be going home today, because her Mama is coming home from the nursing home!
We had a series of winter storms that made us decide that it would be unsafe to travel over the pass to celebrate Christmas with my family on Sunday. That made me kind of sad, but I figured that we wouldn't be doing anybody any good if we got into an accident at this point in time.
On Christmas Day, I opted out on the drive to Redmond and visit with my MIL. Cary went and spent the most of the day with her though. Instead, I stayed home, finished wrapping the gifts that go to Eugene, cleaned the house and made us a ham dinner. It was so nice to just stay put and take care of us.
This is what it still looks like! I don't know how long that we will have the tree up now. I am hoping that we can get to Eugene soon. I feel as if I just finally got things up, and I'm not too excited about taking everything back down.
Dana and Sasha like it best when we are home with them. Dana has just gotten used to Sasha, and seems to enjoy her company. I am afraid that she will be lonely again, without another dog. Before Sasha came to visit, I was thinking about getting a poodle mix, and that is what she is. I hope that we will find a perfect match for us sometime soon. We have always had big dogs, but from here on out, I think that we will be getting little ones.
Dana looks pretty big here, doesn't she?
