I STILL can’t say ENOUGH about Robin Williams unleashed on an excited liberal Portland crowd! He was wild, non-stop, fabulous……see the earlier post. But if I see someone live and 4 days later I’m still laughing about it, that’s a good thing.

WE stayed up late Friday and Saturday nights to get the tree done. From the bottom………
And, of course, Mr. Ken remains our treetop inspiration:
I don’t know why I store the bears away all year, but love them out at Christmas:
These guys are stored too, but can SING …..and we like singing during this season:
This guy does “Let it Snow”:
***note: that may not be so CUTE in Chicago right now, eh Doug? 16 degrees cold and 8″ of snow! Whew! WE have a snow forecast for next weekend……excitement will grow all week if that stays true.
BAIRD claims the fallen leaves were bigger than ever this year what with our extended dry fall:
And remember those Fatali Habaneros drying for 6 days? The two whole trays were reduced to this, and will be enough to last at least two seasons of cooking some warm food:
NOW. The REAL preparations begin: preparing a jar of jam for the mailing, Christmas Cards, cooking FOOD, seeing friends, waiting for a visitor arriving via/Chimney in JUST a bit over 2 weeks……………….
**I JUST saw two different Anna’s feeding as I wrote this. I’m STILL astounded we have them staying up here in December. Our little flying squirrels have been out two nights in a row……….warms your heart doesn’t it?
I HOPE all our friends and family have Christmas excitement wending its way to you……………..
