Merry Sis-mas

Sissy eyes her toy peppermint

(And yes, that’s a stack of boxes and wrapping paper trash behind her head.) 

Sissy’s just not sure about that giant, not-crunchy peppermint toy.  Sissy, Gretchen and cousin Sam each got an Orbee of some sort for Christmas.  Gretchen was nuts about her pink ball, and Sam wouldn’t even let my sister remove the packaging before she dashed off with her bone, but Sissy isn’t as into her mint. 
We’ve had a very lovely Christmas, and tomorrow, we’ll provide more details, but now, we’re going to call it a night.  I have to work tomorrow.  The Knight is off the rest of the year, and if he wasn’t going grocery shopping tomorrow, I might be bitter.  (Check with me tomorrow, when I’m at work and he’s not.  Or better yet, next week…)
This photo’s for Anita.  We’ll be spinning in your room, behind closed doors next time you visit.  With Sissy’s fascination with bobbins, and Gretchen’s with roving, it’s the only safe way to spin.
The Orbee ball does seem to distract her from the roving she stole from “your” room at some point today while I was carrying presents out.  NOTHING is sacred in my home. 
Merry Christmas, and happy Dogs on Thursday, if anyone else is celebrating that…

    Sissy’s just saving it for later. 😉 I think I’d rather work than go to the grocery store. Ick.

  2. Aww, the Christmas girls are soo sweet. I don’t know about the work vrs grocery store thing, though. It may be icky at the store, but doesn’t take ALL day to do it!

    I’d rather go to work than the grocery store on a day like this. I think. I work until 11pm tonight…and it’s not going to be pretty. Hopefully many craft supplies were turned into gifts that aren’t returnable.

    That roving was just too soft & fluffy to resist! I can understand the obsession, LOL!

    Cute photos, although the mint seems to be scaring Sissy…. I think Jasmine has been telling her toy horror stories. Snicker… the crazy cat is afraid of toys that make noise. 🙂

    Send the mint this way. Mr. Bettis can give it a slobbery kiss and send it back. She might like it then:) Cute pics

    My kids aren’t so into the Orbees either… I really wish they’d take to them more. Great pics!
