|Hey! Something is missing here!|
Dylan's girlfriend is with family in Hawaii. We had to resort to drastic measures to cheer Dylan up.
|Our idea man hasn't learned that some ideas can get you signed up to host a luau!|
|This innocent bystander was rather confused by the festivities, but he misses Kelsey too.|

|Dylan is home from college. We are having fun and teasing him a lot. He has gone from looking like a scruffy Shakespeare to grooming like he has a part as an "extra" in the play Fiddler on the Roof.|
|Our Lucy kitty has decided she had better make a last minute effort to get on Santa's "Good List". Our Sophie dog secured her place on the "Good List". She finally learned to chase the deer out of the yard! I think she is still running on adrenaline.|
|Benjamin is chugging along with no idea what is coming down the track this Saturday night.|
|Ben snubbed Santa again, at the mall yesterday. It is a good thing we took dictation and sent his letter to the North Pole.|
|It is warm and cozy in the sun by the Christmas Tree.|
|We are still watching the clouds and hoping for a white Christmas.|
We have sledding to do!

Ben has been herding cattle and Sophie has been herding him. Sophie was spayed last week and has been healing well.
Ben is quite the accomplished potato farmer. He is officially old enough to know what all of Mr. P's parts are and where all of the parts go.
I am hoping Dylan will learn this song to play on his guitar.
"Silver and Gold, Silver and Gold, everyone wishes for Silver and Gold. How do you measure it's worth? ... just by the pleasure it gives here on earth".
"Silver and Gold, Silver and Gold, mean so much more when I see... Silver and Gold decorations on ev'ry Christmas Tree".

The next morning, Ben was wired! He had a lot to say about the tree! He tells me all the time about the, "Red, Blue, Yellow, Green, and Oranch Trismas Tree"! We also unpacked the Christmas books. Ben is studying hard, learning all about this "Christmas" thing that we have brought into the house.The decorations keep him busy all day long! He has a snow globe to shake, jingle bells to jingle, pine needles to sniff, Mr. & Mrs. Santa Mouse to "feed", ornaments to ogle, new music to dance to, new songs to sing, garland to grab at, and important stories to learn. Oh, he is having so much fun!

Thanks for the fun count-down calendar project Jay!
We have our cotton balls ready!
Starting tomorrow, Ben will learn to put them in the right place! Today, our silly little elf thought it was pretty funny to give Santa a snowball nose.
Ben was ready for action the whole long weekend.
He had a ball with Grandpa Jon. Dylan was his usual entertaining self.
The guys kept a lookout for an elusive buck.
Ben helped Grandpa with his football pool research. We kissed Dylan "Good-bye for now" as he headed back to college.
See you at Christmas Break Big Brother!
