Francie's new look

Francie's new look

I'm not one to dress my dog, but we're supposed to have subzero temperatures around here for the next few days and as you can see from the ridiculous bows on her ears, she just got a haircut.

Christmas Loot

Souvenir

Worlds Fair souvenir

This is my great-grandma's. It has her name and the date engraved on this side (you can barely see it) and the other side says World's Fair 1893.

Beer Elf





















Tonight was the Frances/Smeeks Holiday party @ Tuck Shop. We had a Secret Santa exchange and everyone had to perform a trick. The food was DELICIOUS. We had a blast!

Attempt #5. Not an exaggeration.

Back by popular demand
















We're having a potluck at Smeeks today like last year, so I made tuna and chicken salad sandwiches and peanut butter and jelly cupcakes.

Christmas Tree

Cowl attempt #2

Cowl #2

I had great plans for this to be adorable, but I was making it without a pattern. I hated it so I pulled it apart and tried again. This is that second try, before I decided I hated it as well and pulled it apart.

When we dog-sat Oliver, he carried these toys around for about 20 minutes looking for a hiding spot. He cried when he couldn't find one big enough.
