The Whoville Tree

 I was out walking yesterday and The Pooch Mobile was parked in a driveway.  I could see the dog washing man inside and when he saw me he came out to say hello.  He asked if I wanted a business card and I quickly said, "Okay." Anyway he asked me what breed of dog I had and when I said, "I don't have a dog.  I just think that dog is cute!" he was sort of disappointed.  Don't you think this dog is cute?  It's some sort of oodle.  

There are "animals" at the mall when we walk in the morning.  Here's a cheerful reindeer.  I sent this picture to my sister and she asked if you could ride them.  Ha!  No! 
 Isn't the mall cheery and hygge-like?  There are so many nice places to  sit and rest if you get tired of merchandise!  Oh by the way, Susan Branch posted about hygge.  Of course she has known what hygge is and has lived it forever! 
 Recently this little Paris cafe opened.  It's very cute.  I guess I don't go to the mall when it's actually open (lol) so I can't say if the treats are tasty.  
 We celebrated the first Sunday in Advent at Kelli's last week.  The girls danced while Bill played the guitar.  We ate spaghetti together.  VERY hygge. 
 Here's Kelli's cute tree.
 I thought you might like to see a few photos of Noah the elf.  Isn't he precious?

 I'm sort of embarrassed to tell you that Timothy is more than extremely spoiled.  He sleeps IN our bed.  This is him this morning (that's my elbow!)  He stretches out like a slim weasel and sleeps all night.  
 I think I am very late to the Ezekiel 4:9 bread party.  YUM!  It's in the freezer section at the grocery.  It is SO good.  

Another thing I'd like to share with you is this cool app.  It's free.  It's advent-y and interactive.  Just a little something to deepen your holy celebration. 

And here is a little video I made of the Whoville tree.  I put it together and set it up yesterday.  It's very happy and festive.  You'll see the Melissa and Doug brand nativity set, Tim's food dish (lol), Timothy, and the candy themed tree in the family room.

Are you having fun decorating?  Have you baked any cookies?  Hot chocolate makes me feel awful but hot cider doesn't.  I shall serve myself some soon.
Thank you for visiting, kind reader.
