Happy Holidays


It's almost the weekend.  We're so close.  I came down with a lovely little cold midweek that I'm trying to kick.  We have a really busy weekend up ahead with going to see the play, A Christmas Carol, with family and then a big family event on Sunday.  I so hope I wake up tomorrow feeling much better. 

I wanted to get in one last post before the new year.  Basically just to tell you guys what fun I've had blogging this year (started in January 2013) and to thank you for reading and commenting.  It's cool to have this year to look back on in posts.

Also, yesterday I watched this video and it made me so happy.  You will especially love it if you are a dog lover.  I wanted to show my husband because I knew he'd think it was great, but what I didn't expect was how interested my dog, Jax, would be.  

I'm Jax
 I brought the video up on my iPad.  My husband and I were in bed with Jax of course snuggling in between us.  He really thinks he's king of our house.  As soon as the dog in the video started making noise (he was crying out of happiness from seeing his owner), Jax was transfixed.  He was absolutely mesmerized by the dog in the video.  We watched it about 10 more times together just because my husband and I couldn't get enough of Jax's reaction to watching the dog in the video.  I've had Jax for over 4 years now and I've never seen him so interested in TV like this.  Jax kept moving his head back and forth like he was pondering what was happening and then at one point even moved closer to screen as if to get a better look at the dog in the video.  It was a very sweet moment.  

That's my little rant.  I hope you have a fantastic holiday and you jump into the new year with excitement.  2013 has been a number of things for me - good/hard/happy/sad/filled with learning/loving/changing/growing - but at the end of the day, I'm grateful for it all. 

Thank you again for visiting and I'll see you in 2014!
