Mom and Dad have a pre-lit 7 or 8' Christmas tree that is just too big for Mom to get upstairs by herself.
So she and Dad went shopping and came home with this cute thing.
And once they're certain Loopy is going to chew it, they will put ornaments on it.

This is a mug PlusOne made in his Ceramics I class for Pretty Girl.
His teacher, a world renowned ceramics instructor (PlusOne's words) was so impressed with the glazing on this piece that he took it to everyone to show.
He also told PlusOne he was totally stealing his glazing scheme and that he would give PlusOne credit for it.
Pretty cool, huh?
And this is the mushroom PlusOne gave to Mom.
What's funny about that is Mom's favorite part of Fantasia is the dancing mushrooms in the Nutcracker.
PlusOne also made bowls for Mom, his cousin, and his Memere.

A Merry Chase
Mom didn't shut the house door tight and opened the entry screen door and Loopy was out the door, down the steps and off and running.
Mom chased him (at dusk) in her slippers and hoodie up and down the street, around two blocks, in people's yards while Loopy led her on a merry chase. A few people tried to help, but the little stinker ran and ran and ran.
And he marked EVERY SINGLE TELEPHONE POLE between here and there.
After fifteen minutes of this, mom FINALLY managed to catch him.
Serious training on coming when called is starting today. I don't think Loopy knows what he is in for.
And I'm not sure he cares.

Pepere went to Heaven early yesterday morning. He had end of life heart failure.
In 1993 they gave him 5 years to live. PlusOne was born in 1997 and Pepere decided that he wanted to see PlusOne graduate from high school. He did.
We are grateful for the wonderful years we had with him.
We loved him a lot.

Juliet went to the V-E-T yesterday. While she was scared and trembled a bit, she was not visibly trembling.
Juliet weighd 16.5 pounds and is in very good health.
When they took her out back to express an anal gland and micro chip her, she didn't make a peep. (unlike Loopy, who yelped).
Mom was very impressed that she was lying on the table so quietly and not shaking. Mom thinks it might be because the vet tech and the V-E-T were women.
Or it could be because Loopy told her everyone there was cool.

Loopy and Juliet were not too happy to see snow yesterday.
Loopy decided to see what it would taste like.
Juliet decided her feet were cold and she didn't want to be outside any more.
Until Loopy went inside. Then she decided it was time to play.
