Spoiled Rotten


Don't worry... Billy is not threatening us on Christmas morning, he got new knives in his stocking.

We spent the morning on speaker phone with my parents opening our gifts. As usual we got spoiled rotten. Billy and I each got an Amazon Kindle! If you don't know what a Kindle is click through on that link and read about it. It's a really cool thing. In short it's a wireless, paperless device that holds up to 200 books, downloads blogs, periodicals like The New York Times and is also capable of pulling up web pages. We have each already bought a book and subscribed to magazines via the whispernet system on Amazon. When you buy a book it loads in like ten seconds. It's nuts. I can actually pull up my blog (or any blog or site that I know the address for) and view it on the screen as well. The screen is not in color, I guess that technology does not exist yet... but it is waaaay cool. Anywhere that you get cell signal you can get online and download and read web pages etc.

I also got a Jeanine Payer necklace that I have been coveting for a long time. She is one of my favorite jewelry artists. Billy bought me a ring designed by her years ago for my birthday. This necklace reads... "The journey is the reward."





My Mom also shopped on Etsy and got me some beautiful handmade things which I had been admiring for some time. Including this neck scarf handmade in Italy...




I hope everyone is having a great day with family and friends wherever you are in this world... I am off to cook our dinner and put away our treasures.

I will leave you with a shot of Rudy exhausted after opening presents this morning...

Love the family photo...speaking of photos, Maddie and Jackson have a picture on their desk of a pretty good looking "dirty" dog. Thank you for the gourmet topics as well. I'm hoping it won't make me seem like a noncooker or too much of a "cook out of a box"

Well... you could always start honing your skills as a dog cookie baker. The dogs won't complain if the cookies are bad. I will share my recipes with you if you are in to it.

They did not make one of those games about shoes... so you got stuck with gourmet topics. Maybe YOU should make a version of the game about shoes?! You could makes millions.... do it. Do it!

I was just trying to think of something that would make me millions and then I decided to check out your blog instead. It's a win-win.
