He goes after this one particular gnome every day and removes it from the garland. But today he caught an actual mouse! It was so tiny...but it was his! We scooped him up and put him in Willow's room while we dealt with it and he was screaming and had both paws under the door trying to get out...once we released him, he ran to where he had been tossing it in the air (I thought it was the gnome for the longest while...poor mouse) and starting whining...its the weirdest meow I have ever heard!
Rowan and Mara have both said to me he is Maggie reincarnated...maybe so...who knows..but he is the silliest member of the family for now...I'm just glad he took care of the mouse! ~

That time again! It seems like it was yesterday when we had our annual game night with filled ugly socks! I got all the expansion packs I was missing and they were hilarious...as usual~
Filled socks ready for exchanging Dirty Santa style~
Good friends and good fun!

Date night! We started our night with an amazing meal at Stella Grill. We have always wanted to try this place and I can't believe we waited so long. It was fabulous. I had the steak with these amazing veggies and David had the enchiladas~
Then we were off on a scavenger hunt with Let's Roam. Oh so much fun! We froze but it was worth it~
I love our weekly adventures!
I don't have any other videos of this because David is my spot and needs to be ready to grab the bar before it kills me...but I failed 3 times on 135 so it deloaded me back to 115 so its not that challenging at the moment...Here I am lifting 120. I will master 135!

This was a rough months with 2 months gone! We did manage to get a workout in in Mexico but they didn't have all we needed so we improvised. Then we came home from NYC sick so it was a rough start to get back to it!
you can see I am going in an oval shape...not straight up and down...working on it! 205 here...
Shoes off helped...its time for some lifters for sure...205
210...last set of 5 so I am tired!
Dead lift is getting stronger! I was able to do the whole warm up without straps which is huge for me and my weak grip~

Piet gave out candy canes instead of trapping him in his bag to take him to the salt mines to work...Rowan said if that happened he would pull out his secret phone and call the FBI!
There was a discussion on FB wall about how offensive Piet is...for the record, that is that mans natural skin color! So for people to be so upset by it, is a little offensive in itself. They did used to do blackface and it was absolutely shocking to this southern raised girl. The first time I saw it I was shocked!
The point for me is, my kids love having Sinterklaas fill their shoes on December 6th. Piet is his sidekick and helper. I have never portrayed him as anything else. Race has never even come up. In fact, until last night Mara thought he was a creature like The Krampus LOL Only because of the Salt Mine story...but most people tell their kids Santa brings coal if they are bad and have an elf sitting in their home watching them...honestly all of this is fucked up if you think about it LOL
It is all about fun and tradition and love around here~
