Trees! Breakfast! Fun!

I totally forgot to blog yesterday...I was engrossed in reading a really wonderful fantasy...

There's this girl...Iolanthe...who has amazing magical powers. She is wanted by a powerful Mage and a lovely Prince...Titus...saves her. But...she has to go to an all boy prep school in London and be disguised as a boy! This book is captivating!

The fascinating thing about this book is that the author immigrated to this country from China when she was 13 and taught herself English by reading romance novels.






The tree...so far...no one has even looked at it but it's still bare. I don't even think Roxie knows there is a tree in the living room...neither does Lucy.






But...Lucy is obsessed with fake greenery. See that Santa way up high...he is holding the teensiest fake tree...Lucy is jumping and pacing and crying because she wants it! I had to let her see each tree and Santa up close to calm her down!





And this guy has his arms filled with fake greens and she doesn't even bother with him!





Tree decorating power breakfast...homemade blueberry pancakes and pancake sausages...our butcher makes them just go with pancakes and waffles!





Of all of the handmade amazing Santas and snowmen I have...this little Walmart snowman is one of my favorites...I hope you can see why!

Happy Everything!

    1. Lucy is used to it...no interest...Roxie was trying to grab the head...it was cute...

  5. Pancake sausages! What a concept. Mixing sausages and pancakes is very foreign to us, I know that it's common in America, but it seems very strange to me. How great that your butcher makes sausages for that exact purpose.

    1. Yes'. You could never eat them with anything other than waffles or pancakes!

  6. So adorable, that snowman! And I always love drooling over your food!

    I'll bet Lucy and Roxy notice the tree after you decorate it.

    I finally struggled through and finished Tumbleweeds...wow, what a mixture of a page-turner with slow, tedious parts. Uneven storylines, too, but overall...not bad.

  8. Weird but I kinda love a semi bare tree. Trees are beautiful on their own I think.
