Luck be a lady tonight, please

The black, hairy, dearly-loved, canine that lives in our home has been having some eye trouble.  Typically for this one, it’s always been the ears.  That poor dog has had more ear infections than the rest of us combined.  So, when her eye started looking red, I was a bit worried.  I’m sparing you the grossness that is her left eye by showing a pic that Cameron took of her with both eyes closed.  Cam has a knack for taking pictures of the dog blinking.  it’s weird.

Apparently she has cataracts and a pigment-free third eyelid, both of which are not the problem.  We’ve been referred to a animal opthalmologist.  Oh, joy. That’ll have to wait till after the new year, precious, black, hairy, child-o-mine.   Her smeller works just fine, btw, and, boy, did she ever want what was in the trash this day.  If you look really close to the right side of the door…see the scratch marks??   She got the door open.  Lucky for us the trash wasn’t very full, but we’re gonna have to be smarter next time.

Sweet, rotten dog. 🙂

Black Friday with a twist

The day after Thanksgiving, aka Black Friday, is not a shopping day for the Kelleys.  We have other things in mind.  Starting with breakfast-which we wait for a reasonable hour for–at our favorite place, Chick-Fil-a.  And since it’s been a while since I’ve posted any pictures, I thought I tell this story mostly with pics.

These little beauties are the highlight of breakfast.  My mouth is watering just looking at the picture. mmm…Chickn Mini’s.

The winner of our annual best worst Christmas ornament is….whatever this is.

Honorable mention for best worst Christmas ornament goes tooo….the hideously malformed ginger bread…uh…boy.

At this point in the day, we took a break and went back home to see Daniel and Elizabeth, my nephew and niece, since they were visiting from Colorado.  Chronologically, this picture doesn’t fit, but it’s representative of them and their visit, so, shush.  Aren’t they cute?!

A little while later we headed to Bricktown for some more silliness.  and dinner.  and lights.  The water taxi is free, starting that day through New Years, and you’d a-thought they was givin’ away dollar bills for all the people lined up to take a ride.

So, we skipped the water taxi and just took a walk along the canal.  Apparently, they lit the Christmas tree while we were there, but we managed to miss it somehow.

So, there.  That marked the beginning of a Christmas season made up of very little shopping, very little stress, and some just plain old fun for the sake of making memories.
