Merry after Christmas friends. Seems like things got so darn busy that I didn't have time to post anything for a few days - although I did sneak on the computer to catch up on what you've been doing. We are closing the shop until next Wednesday (January 2) and heading up to the Little House for a few days. I think this is the 12th year that we have celebrated New Years up north. We're so excited that Earlene and Norm are coming up to join us for a night!

Oh dear friends, can you believe this is actually the last week before Christmas? I finally got our tree up and a little decorating done. Today I'm off to do the holiday shopping and then, hopefully, coming home to some Christmas music, candlelight and wrapping. This time of year gets so darn crazy! Tomorrow night is Abbey's Christmas program at school, Thursday night we pick up our puppy, and Friday night is an open house at Scrooge's house.

I'd like to announce the winner of the puppy contest! We are getting the little boy puppy and his name is "Dickens". I can't wait to pick him up at the end of next week! Dick and I went shopping last night and came home with a cozy little bed, a red and white Christmas sweater for him and two toys to get him going. I have a feeling that he is going to be spoiled to no end. Dickens will come to the shop with me every day, so be sure and stop in to meet him.

Not sure if you remember, but we lost our Rosie Boxer awhile ago and my heart has ached each day since. Every day when we walk in the door, it's a disappointment that she isn't here to greet us. Every night I miss her snuggling with me while I stitch or watch t.v. SO... Dick and I went puppy shopping yesterday. We have narrowed it down to two puppies. We were determined to get a little girl, but there's also a little boy that has stolen my heart. Which one would you get?

Whew! Our Dickens Festival wrapped up last night with a bang! When it was over our "Dickens Family" got together and had some fun "down time".

Oh my goodness! What a great day we had today. Tomorrow is the last day of our annual Holly Dickens Festival and it will be hard to top today.
