Do not open until Christmas...

...apparently doesn't mean anything to Venus.  It seems we will have to put the Christmas treats somewhere other than under the tree.

When I asked her if she thought she deserved anything for Christmas all I got was this look:


Bassets in hats

Bassets in hats people:

Nothing says Christmas like a basset in a hat.  Oh, and a scarf.  Nothing says Christmas like scarf laden basset hounds.


The Major Award

Some folks say Christmas is a time for giving. A time for men to put away their differences and embrace the spirit of friendship that brightens our souls year round. A time for thoughtfullness and caring.  You know, all that kind of crap. 

But if you ask me the true meaning of the holiday spirit is to show the world what great taste you have in Christmas decorations.

The Creation of Adam

"The Creation of Adam" was painted around 1511 by Michelangelo, and illustrates the story from the Book of Genesis in which God The Father breathes life into Adam, the first man.  As an unmistakable work of art I am constantly reminded of it when I see a quality finger pointing, and whenever you are around Georgie you are going to see a whole LOT of finger pointing.


Missing greenery already

The high in Des Moines today was about 25 degrees (farenheit.)  Some folks might think that is cold, but soon enough we will see days where the high won't even get to zero.  So like any other Iowan I like to go back through my photos I took during the summer and thank my maker that at least it isn't still 95 degrees with high dew points. Gotta love extremes!


Here mom gives Georgie some instruction on how to sit still for photos, and he pretends to actually be listening.  But I assure you he wasn't.
