Coconut Pie

My hubby made a coconut pie today. This is his second pie. The first one was chocolate. We have not cut into this one yet. Only 7 days left until LSU plays OSU. GEAUX TIGERS!

I got a waffle maker for Christmas. It works great! We have tried it twice. Only once did I overload it with batter and have a tremendous overflow. I baked strawberry cakes for my neighbors this year. It is always fun to give! I had a mall gift certificate to spend after Christmas. I spent it all: shirts, sweater, pj's, Bath and Bodyworks, Christmas dishes, socks. We did not have a white Christmas. Toonces is two months away from being 17.

Snow and Ice

The snow started Saturday at 9:00 a.m. and fell until about 2:00 p.m. Then we had freezing rain for the rest of the day.
I made vegetable soup for the weekend. My husband made a chocolate pie this week. Only one piece is left.
As of this morning, the ground is a crunchy layer of ice and some snow. We will have snow showers through the afternoon but probably little accumulation due to the wind.

December Pug Meet-up

We had our December pug meet-up at Club K-9 Doggy Daycare.
It was a very nice daycare facility. There were lots of new members and plenty of pugs running around.

Our first few flakes fell on November 23. Our first accumulation fell on December 5.

Last weekend we had chili. This weekend it's potato soup. Due to the snow, the boys haven't had a walk in 3 days. They have some stored up energy today for the pug meet-up. Winston is 10 years old and he's becoming sensitive to the cold. He gets chills easily now. We have a sweater for him, but he doesn't like to wear it.
