A House Made of .....

Ready for Santa

CoCo had a salon appointment on Monday. She's bathed and groomed with bows and all. She's looking forward to a stocking full of bones and treats. She's been a very good girl this year.

A Casual Evening

A Moment with My Husby!

A few nights ago Granddaddy, Mema and Uncle Jay came over for a casual evening of delicious chili and cheesecake bars. Granddaddy and Mema gave Jax lots of goodies including a cool red car, a rocking horse and an Alabama (ROLL TIDE) rocking chair. We had a fun evening relaxing and laughing. Jax loves to entertain and he did not disappoint. A wonderful time to be together.

A Lovely Day

A winter wonderland!

Julie and Mema
Is there something in here?
Hey Mommy - hurry up!

On Sunday we enjoyed a lovely holiday lunch with my family. Our delicious dinner consisted of beef bacon wrapped chicken, Honey-Baked ham, white rice, cheese, crackers, green grapes, a variety of raw veggies, deviled eggs, my brother John's famous broccoli cheese casserole and bacon wrapped green beans, my brother Jay's yummy frozen fruit salad, and warm yeast rolls. The festive white cupcakes with creamy buttercream frosting topped with white sprinkles were equally delicious.

It was a wonderful time with lots of laughs, hugs and delightful conversation. Jax loved having everyone over and enjoyed an early Christmas present from Mema and Granddaddy.

Celebrating the Season at Puffy

Yummy goodies for my friends!
Two very dear friends!

Last Saturday morning I met my girlfriends, Ann Marie and Erin at the Puffy Muffin in Brentwood. We had a wonderful breakfast of our favorite morning treats. It is always so much fun to get together. We exchanged holiday gifts and enjoyed lots of laughs.

It's Beginning to Look A Lot Like.....

Looks good to me, Daddy!
This is cool!
Jax put his "Little Ducky" on the tree all by himself!
What do you think of my antlers?
My two wonderful boys! So sweet!
It's beginning to look and feel like Christmas in the Dooner home. We went tree shopping on Saturday and found a beautiful Douglas Fir. It smells wonderful. We enjoyed a fun night decorating our perfect tree.

Monday night we visited with Santa Claus at Cool Springs Galleria. Jax was a perfect angel as he posed with Jolly Ole St. Nick. He loved his candy cane antlers.
This is such a wonderful time of the year. The smell of the tree and freshly baked sugar cookies fill our home. Our stockings are hung - ready to be filled. Enjoy this magical time of the year.
