Almost Christmas

New router has our computers speeding along.  Now I can even watch video without lots of buffering. It's almost like having cable internet.  Yeah !

Christmas past.  First Christmas with our new fiber-optic tree.  Gee wiz, new technology back in 2004.  The tree was sparkly and beautiful.

Fast forward to Christmas 2012, the last year for our pretty tree.  I wish the fiber-optic sparkle would show up in photos. It was not cheesy looking at all.
 Last week the plastic stand broke while  DH was fluffing branches.  It shattered on two of the leg slots (this tree was very heavy).  No way to fix so a new tree was brought home.

No fiber-optic lights on this one.  It's a "chenille" tree, ends of needles are fuzzy to give a frosted look.  Guess we will get used to it, should look ok once decorated.
Old tree- RIP.
 This new tree is very lightweight, easy and fast to put up.   I'm still working on adding ornaments.

Ho-ho-ho, a Christmas Poodle !  Saw this tinsel dog on FB, then searched for one.  In all of SE AZ there were three left at a Home Depot in Tucson. 
 DH made a power drive last Saturday to pick one up.  Yeah!  I love it.  The poodle kids are not sure what to make of it ;-) LOL.

Missy update:   The prednisone has stopped the chronic cough Missy had. We are now in the process of reducing  dosage.  So far she is showing no signs of respiratory distress.
This little poodle girl has discovered squeaker toys.  At night she cuddles with her toy and then runs up and down the hall with it clenched in her mouth.  I'm glad she has found something entertaining. After all she is still a pup at age five.
