A Good Christmas


Hi everyone .

Hope you all had a good Christmas . We did that's for sure .

Santa paws came here and left Miggs and Harley  a stocking each . Miggs just couldn’t wait .



                                    Miggs had a little help from Papa opening her stocking  !

                               Then we did Harley’s for her and she loved her new toys to !

Then Christmas day I did a ham in the crock pot and baked sugar cookies as the girls played with their toys and Papa vacuumed and dusted for me .



Again one of my own recipes for slow cooking the ham . Half a cup of water then mix half a cup of maple syrup ,   golden honey and pineapple sauce, baste every now and then as the ham cooks and soaks up all the flavour  on low for 10 hours  MMM it was good .

The kids came down Christmas day eve , we opened gifts and had a nice visit but unfortunately they had to go back  this afternoon as our oldest has to  go back  to work  and they needed to head back before the winter storm hit so they didn’t get caught in it , but it was nice to see them .

     We are in a white out right now a huge winter storm has hit southern Ontario ! High winds , blowing snow and cold. We have gone from no snow to a white winter wonderland with in a few hours and it is to keep up all through the night into tomorrow . WOOHOO ! I wanted snow and now I have it , looks soo pretty.

                  Miggs and I will go out and play in it  and  I can take my winter photos tomorrow !

                                     Until next time hope you all have a good day !

Sounds like a real good Christmas. More importantly, the kids could come for at least awhile.

Happy Holidays to you.


P.S. I really like the crockpot ham.

Lucky little furbabies! Glad you had a good Christmas and were able to have some family time no matter how short! Cheers!

Looks like you and the furbabies had a very Happy Christmas! I wish the holidays lasted longer. I wish you all the best in 2013, a very Happy New Year!

Too much snow here for my liking.
