More winter sports

We tried out ice skating today. Rachel got the hang of it eventually.
Next stop, the ice capades.


She took off her skates after about 30 minutes and was content to be
the queen of the mountain!

Christmas pics

We finally put our tree up yesterday, after leaving it sit in the back of the van for a week.
So after we decorated it, we decided to try to stage our annual Christmas pic.
After much crying and fussing we got a few good ones.
First we tried with all of the dogs.
That didn't work. Even though we got them all to actually sit in the same place together for more than 5 seconds, we couldn't get them all to look at the camera at the same time.
So, we tried just the two happy sisters together next.
Then, they had to do a costume change and try it again with just Coco.
I think this will be the final product

Psycho Dog

We got Coco this bag of cute little doggie balls just his size a few weeks ago. The problem is, they are laced with the doggie version of catnip or something, because if you make the mistake of throwing the ball to him once, he will never let you stop. We have literally thrown him the ball for over an hour without him relenting.

Thanksgiving dessert

Chocolate Lava Cake with ice cream.
Yum Yum!!

After shot

Looks good and smells good

Something new

A whole turkey is just too much for us, since Steve doesn't eat any.
So, we are trying somethig new, Cornish game hens. I put olive oil and cumin on in before cooking. Then after they cooked for 45 minutes, I brushed on a glaze with lime juice, honey and mustard, cooked them for 15 more minutes.
