2017 five days ole

 The Teeny Tys were in my stocking Christmas morning. I have move them from the mantle to a box on top of my computer. So now I get to spend time with them as I peck away on the keyboard and they along with George Washington and Robert E Lee get to watch me work and play. 
 These two photos were taken January first. We were subject to two days of fog but did not get some sun until yesterday. The clouds have returned today and we have been promised snow from noon  until midnight. We are along the edge of the system so we will get a dusting which scares many Southern. The South does not have the snow equipment that other areas have so driving can be rather upset to EVERYONE no matter where they are from. 
The Kitty Justice is to stay home and warm. 
GRRRRR I have had issue with the computer connections and have not bee HAPPY.

2016 Good Bye Bye Bye Bye

The Pope and Puppy when she was here this year. We had a wonderful visit with her and her Mother but as usual the day went too fast. 
Mimi getting ready to unwrap the first round of presents. The living room blows up with wrapping paper, bags and bows three times each Christmas. This photo was during The Pope's visit.
Yesterday Puppy and Prince helped me pack the decorations away and take down the tree. I try to always set out the tatting Christmas tree that my good ole friend, JOT grandmother,Katheen Reese made. Kathleen died in 2003 just a few weeks before she would have turned 102.The tree is another of my treasures. 
Maggie could not wait to unload her stocking. She got a giant hedgehog and a three foot fox. It is funny because the fox appears in different rooms everyday. Cricket's back and head were visible and she was wondering where her toys were. Her Mom came in and gave her a little bear and she was happy. Then she got a little star wars creature from Maggie. 
We had clouds for a few days and then the sun appeared. Today is Friday the 30th and we awoke to below freezing temperatures but lots of sun and a sky so clear you wonder where the clouds have gone. 
The Kitty Justice is that it appears to be warmer than it is as you look out at the golden sunshine but step out side and the tears will be blown from your eyes.

Christmas Eve

I crossed stitch this a long time ago but the saying and song are one of my favorites. This is the only thing I put on the mantle this year. 
The Kitty Justice is this goes along with my Blue Tree that honors our Policemen.

Who cares about Santa, The Pope is here.

When we were young and carefree we did not have very many photos of us together. Therefore. each Christmas we make a point to have one made of The Best Friends. 

This one was taken of us last year and of course my wonderful lab, Maggie likes to get into the act. She is so jealous of anyone who gets close to me. 

The Kitty Justice as you read this I am having " Fun of the Season" with my Best Friend.

Beside the Table with the Small Tree in the Hall

 This little Angel I got several years ago at our Art Ventures Dirty Santa Game and I am so proud that I have it. It was done by artist Mary Anne Batey and she is now an Angel herself. My goal in the game is to get a painting from all the members because when they are gone, either forever or just move away the chance of getting a great painting is very few and far between. Especially when they start using their paintbrushes in the sky. The painting is hung above the Santa and tiny tree shown below. 
This tiny tree was Gran Dots and every year she brought it out to sit by her front door. 
The Kitty Justice is it is so very, very nice to have items that bring pleasant memories of those we have loved on earth.

Sam Cats Tree

 This little tree sits in the front hall under a table and it is the first thing you see when you come in the front door. For some reason Mimi's old Siamese Cat, Sam thinks it is his. Every night as he follows Mimi down the hall to go to bed, he likes to stop and remove one package from the tree. 
As you can tell I have brought out the Nut Crackers to guard the hall this year. This big one is the first one I ever bought and it was before Prince so that will tell you how old this wooden fellow happens to be. 
The Kitty Justice is that Sam Cat ignores the guards and I do believe since Lilly claimed the big tree that is why he is protesting by removing the packages on the small tree.
