By the Fire -

It was 44 degrees this morning, which is cold for us, so Momma put a log in the fireplace. About a half hour later, we looked in the living room, and Lucy Mae had dragged in her bed to lay in front of the fire. Typical Dachshund. haha. :) She sure enjoyed that after going outside and shivering!

By the Fire. 

Watching Momma eat something.

"Guess I'm not getting any...."

Cuddly, warm, snuggly little puppy. 

Love this one. She brings her paws up to her mouth like an otter. It's so adorable. 

"Ahhhh. Heat all over meee." This is how she lays on her back. With her coon draped over her belly. hahah. She got 3 squeaky woodland creatures for Christmas, and all we hear out of her these days is squeaking. It's pretty cute. She's a happy little doggie.

I couldn't decide if I liked it better in Color or B&W, so I did both. :)

I sang her part of the Davy Crockett song, and then it got stuck in my head. Oh my.

We are really enjoying Christmas vacation together as a family. Daddy has some time off, and we have breaks from school, and are just enjoying getting up in the morning and relaxing. :)

Of course I woke up this morning and couldn't go back to sleep because Becs and I are going to see Les Miserables in the theater today, and I was sooooo excited that sleep wouldn't come. haha. So I got up and watched some of the scenes from the 10th anniversary (which is my standard) and I got chills like I always do. Now that Darby, Molly and Shelby have seen it and they have all loved it, then that is alllllll I need. I'm stoked. And don't worry. I'm taking enough Kleenex to fortify us. hahaha.

Have a wonderful Thursday!
With love,

  1. oooo cozy. I want a fireplace.

  2. You have a sweet little dog!
    So cute:)
    Have fun at the theater, is that a move or an oprea?

  3. It is a book written by Victor Hugo in 1862, and it was turned into a musical, and that musical was turned into a film. So yes, it's a movie. A musical movie. :) It was wonderful!

  4. That is so cute!! Its been surprisingly really cold here too and my doggies do the same thing except they make a little pitiful look so that we'll put pillows on the floor for them to lay on ..... spoiled dogs ;)

  5. Ah! How sweet... finding a cozy spot near the fire on a cold morning is something I enjoy too... except with a cup of cider to go with it. ;)


  6. Oh my gracious, Lucy Mae is so precious! When I read your "typical Dachshund" part, I had to share. their is this one spot in Holly's room where the light shines really warm through her window for most of the day. The other day it was really cold, and all of a sudden Maggie started scratching at the door and whining to get in her room. we thought she wanted to play with Strykar or something. When we opened the door, she ran to the sunlight spot, and layed down and sighed. It was so cute, and so very "Typical Dachshund".
