We are still here. I do have a couple of blog posts in the works and also a cute video to share as soon as we are through editing it. Sissie and Mimi are sick again. Seems like we can just not get rid of this stuff. Tonight the coldest air of the year is moving in and we are supposed to bottom out at 18 with a wind chill of 12. Good weather to stay in bed and catch up on all of our DVR programs! With 4 different DVR's in this house we are all free to watch what we want and still be comfy in our own rooms.

The guys are all doing good. Johnny has just been hanging around the house doing nothing. He started taking his insulin again and hasn't drank any in the last few days so maybe things are looking up. Frank and Frankie are both working hard. They went hunting last weekend. Saw but didn't get anything.

Getting Christmas ready. We aren't planning anything big just a large dinner of course hoping mom and dad will be able to make it. (providing no one is sick here).

So that is the update for now. Will finish up my other posts and get them up as quickly as I can.

Until then of course something a little fun...

Odd Christmas Traditions

In Italy they have no Christmas trees - instead they decorate small wooden pyramids with fruit.

Sending red Christmas cards to anyone in Japan constitutes bad etiquette, since funeral notices there are customarily printed in red.

In Caracas, the capital city of Venezuela, it is customary for the streets to be blocked off on Christmas eve so that the people can roller-skate to church.

An artificial spider and web are often included in the decorations on Ukrainian Christmas trees. A spider web found on Christmas morning is believed to bring good luck.

It is a British Christmas tradition that a wish made while mixing the Christmas pudding will come true only if the ingredients are stirred in a clockwise direction.

A traditional Christmas dinner in early England was the head of a pig prepared with mustard.
