Early Christmas Presents

 Tesla is our 6 month old Australian Shepherd. Yesterday, Tesla came in from outside and I tried to give her a treat, but she wouldn't take it. "That's weird" I thought, then I noticed there was something in her mouth. Well she is always carrying around a ball, stick, pinecone, or a leaf, so I told her to give it to me - and I stuck out my hand... She deposited this in my hand, then proceeded to eat her snack!

She who happily brings Mama ALL her toys, even those that are alive... er once alive.
I went to two Christmas parties this week, one with my Church Circle and the other with my Bible Study. What a delight to get together with friends! Our Bible Study always does a Chinese Gift Exchange. In the past we've done ornaments, but this year we did dish towels. What a hit! We had a blast and got something that you can always use more of!

The last of my Christmas Cards are made and now I can get busy making them out to mail.  How about you? Have you mailed your Christmas Cards yet?
These are the cards we made in class today. Great group of ladies and lots of fun in a new room :)
