Colorful Heart

It came without ribbons. It came without tags. It came without packages, boxes or bags.

And he puzzled and puzzled ’till his puzzler was sore. Then the Grinch thought of something he hadn’t before.

What if Christmas, he thought, doesn’t come from a store. What if Christmas, perhaps, means a little bit more.

- Dr. Seuss

Hope everyone had a good holiday weekend. Are we ready for Christmas? She is such a picture hog lately huh?? Aren't those shoes the cutest?!? I wish they made them in my size!!! :o)

A little spice!

And a few more for ya....:o)

We were on the way home from the shoot below and found this building!! She thought it was the coolest thing!!

And in the spirit of Thanksgiving here is a quick, easy recipe for you!!!

Pumpkin Mousse Pie

What you need:

1 1/4 cups of cold milk
2 packages of cheesecake flavor instant pudding & pie filling
1 teaspoon pumpkin spice or 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 cup canned pumpkin
1 tub frozen whipped topping thawed, divided
1 graham pie crust (you can make your own or use the short cut like me!)

1/2 cup chopped walnuts (optional- we didn't do this cause no one likes nuts!)
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 tablespoon butter

Now, go put your curly top kid in front of the TV ;o)

1. In a large bowl beat milk, pudding mix and spice with a wire whisk for 1 min. Whisk in pumpkin. Fold in half of whipped topping.

2. Spread in crust. Refrigerate at least 4 hours.

3. Combine walnuts, brown sugar and butter. Microwave on high for 1-2 minutes or until bubbly. Stir, cool. Spread over pie.

4. Serve with remaining whipped topping.

Sorry, no pictures of the finish product because the rugrats already dug into it!!

Just a few for ya......

She was totally singing and dancing the whole time to this song (turn your speakers on peeps!). I just love how these show her personality

Oh yeah- and this one cost me a whole bag of M&M's on top of that lollipop!! Why? She was so embarrassed that everyone would be looking at her- oh and they did! She is a little traffic stopper!!!

Oh and guess what??? 28 more DAYS till Kassie gets her cast off!!! WHOO HOOO!!! Got the call today. Let the count down began!!!!! :o)

Our visit to the hospital went well yesterday and very fast!!! This is going to be Kassie's last cast!! YAY!!! She was very brave and so was her doggie that got admitted and went along with her and blankie into the OR.

She will be getting her cast off before Christmas!! They angled her legs more inward to prepare her. Poor thing I think she is confused and off balanced- when we got home we set her on the ground and she fell right over!! But after a few hours she was into everything again. And of course a little light bulb went off in my head......pants!! Could I get pants on her? Yes I did!! Trust me this is a big deal if you weren't able to wear pants for 5 months!!

Her new favorite word is "please". Thats right my little polite child. But oh everything is please, please, PLEASE with a HUGE sense of urgency as if the sky is falling. Except it sounds like she is saying peas, peas, PEAS! And of course how can you resist telling her "no" looking into those big brown puppy dog eyes. Look what "peas" got her yesterday at the store....

I think I am in trouble......

I can join the club!!! Our blog is up and running. Well, I hope.....I am still trying to get use to this thing!! After many weeks of banging my head on my desk I finally got the layout that I wanted and the pictures to be bigger!!!! Yay!! I need to fix a few more things but I don't want to mess with this thing anymore than I have- everytime I change something it throws the whole layout out of wack!! Ugh! As a matter of fact the bottom is still wacky in Firefox! Okay enough rambles from me.....

Oh and I have some PURE cuteness for ya!!! We have two new neighbors in town!!!

Thats right! These cute pups!!! Don't you just want them both????

Too bad- they already have homes!!! Good for me though!! :o)

Now this is love........

Thanks Ms. N for sharing your pups with us!!!

On a more serious note...we are off to Delaware tomorrow to get Kassie's hip checked and **sigh** yet another cast-- unless some miracle upon miracles happens! I am not holding my breath!! So if you can keep her in your thoughts and prayers tomorrow. For once I want to bring home some good news!!!!

Have a good night!!!
