YAY for deep-fried cookies

We have made rosettes, which are Christmas cookies that are pure, unadulterated bad-for-you-ness -- deep fried dough sprinkled with powdered sugar. YUM. I ate two for dinner with glasses of sparkling wine w/pomegranate juice.

Now watching the Wait Wait Don't Tell Me BBCA special. Fun!

I have another pair just like them:

Christmas flowers:

When we had rain the other week, I left my umbrella drying in the foyer:

We thought about going to the movies tonight, but there's no late showings of some of the ones we want to see, so probably tomorrow. Tonight we relax and eat cookies for dinner.

Life is good.

Happy Holidays, everyone. :)

Yay! We made pitzels today (no time to make them prior). We are making rotel and velveeta/taquitos/beans/guacamole for dinner. Couldn't score any tamales - boo. We'll make do! And beer!

Right before bed, we'll watch A Christmas Story.

Merry Christmas Eve!!!

Tamales we have! We finished off the red ones and have a dozen green in the freezer -- NOM! That's one sure thing about living in the Southwest, you can always find someone who sells tamales at Christmastime!

I'll watch A Christmas Story tomorrow. Tonight cleaning off Tivo, but might watch something else while we're eating a very late dinner.

And lots of wine. The essence of the season: Food and drink!

Love the "Xmas" Converses!

I went to see Sherlock Holmes with my sister. Once again, there was a naked Holmes. Just not the one I would have expected.

I should have worn them like this during the week. Didn't think about it until this morning!

Hmmm. We'll probably see the Muppets first. Ended up making Rosettes tonight. Woot!

Understandable! But they are happy-making with their sheer evil-ness. Yay for deep-fried goodness.

Merry Christmas!

Love the shoes!

And what is it about cats and umbrellas, anyway? They seem to find them irresistible.

I don't know why I didn't think of it sooner!

I'm not sure, but this cat particularly, just about anything that looks like a bag or a box... or anything to lay on...

How silly of you to buy two pairs of the same shoes. *g*

Rosettes are soooooo yummy. And what is it about cats and umbrellas? ::points to icon::

Merry, merry!

Hee hee hee.

I guess they're sort of like boxes. To a cat.

Oh, don't let his looks fool you. He's pure evil. :)
