It’s a Wild December

Happy Monday! It's the first day of Christmas break for many of us, so everything in my world is right. Minus the house painting I have to do. And the Christmas shopping. And the grocery run. And the Hershey kisses in the cabinet I can't eat. And the cookies I don't have. But other than that, woo!

Author Natalie Lloyd is running a fun contest. Check it out HERE.

Super blogger and awesome YA librarian Green Bean Teen Queen needs some book suggestions. Help a girl out HERE. She also has some gift guides for the teens in your life and for those of us who love picture books. I put some of those on my Amazon Wish List.

Author Mae Nunn recently shared pics of her dog Cooper that made me laugh. Normally Mae subjects her husband and children to sit for the family Christmas card. This year she gave them a break and asked Cooper to be the star. I'm not sure if Coop is ready for his closeup.

“Mom, this is lame.”

I AM smiling.

No. I'm done. I need a break. Did I get paid for that sixty seconds? Show me the kibbles or I'm calling my union.

This dog has given up too.

Here's another dog with a whole lot of patience.

This puppy got to be in the spotlight too.

Unfortunate name for a dog. Or a body part.

This one never gets old.

I wish my high schoolers were this easily entertained.

Finally, proof that world peace is possible.  Exhibit A:

Exhibit B:

Speaking of hairy novelties, did you see the Kardashians' Christmas card? What ticks me off is that it looks just like my family's holiday greeting. Minus the sacrificial toddler in the Hugo Boss.
Run, baby. Run.

Have a great week!

I need to ask for more book suggestions-I love reading everyone’s ideas!

And my family Christmas card feels so lame after the Kardashians-but they didn’t take twenty-some odd takes trying to pose their dogs!:)

Thought running through Maru (the box cat)’s head: Does this box make my butt look fat?

Not being a cat person, I must ask: what’s the deal with cats and boxes??? 🙂

Okay, that picture of Cooper smiling cracked me up! And the pitbull getting bopped by the kitten should be sainted! LOL! The world peace exhibit A video was WONDERFUL…I’ve gotta admit it almost brought a tear to my eye. 🙂 Happy house-painting!

Omg, those dog/kitty videos were so cute! I loved the world peace one- so sweet. (okay maybe the part with the leopard killing the mom was sad…but then it took care of the baby? Weird, but kinda cute in a strange, murderous way…)
