The Latest Pictures

Christmas was great at our house, and I hope you all had a wonderful holiday also. Both our sons were here, as were our daughter-in-law and granddaughter. We had fun opening our gifts, laughing a lot, eating too much, and just being together again. I am thankful for technology and its ability through Skype to allow us to be with our daughter who lives in Florida. We Skyped a couple times on Christmas Day, and all of us felt closer and better for it. Now if someone could just figure out how to send hugs and kisses across the miles....

Our living room looks so sad and bedraggled. The tree is still up, but with no presents under it, it just looks forlorn and depressing. I'm tempted to take it down and put the decorations away.

We received both paper and electronic Christmas cards. All were very appreciated. It's great to be in touch with family and friends, to read the reviews of everyone's year, and to receive photos of kids, grandkids, and Lhasas. I managed to send electronic cards to friends and family who have email, but I still have to mail paper cards to those who do not. I admit to being so lazy this week. I am fortunate that I work at a university that gives us a paid week off between Christmas and New Year, and I've simply enjoyed the time off by reading and relaxing. It's been great, but it's starting to get old. I'll be ready to go back to work when the time comes and will certainly be more productive!

Here are the latest photos of the puppies taken on the 24th when they were 3 weeks old. They are getting so cute. They are up on their feet and toddling around. They are responding excitedly to the sound of my voice. They still nap frequently but are more and more active for longer periods of time. Enjoy their photos!

Oh...and we finally got around to taking pictures of Raven. Here are a couple of the better ones from her photo shoot. Click the photos if you want to see larger images.

I'll post puppy pictures again next week. In the meantime, please have a fun but safe New Year's Eve, and always remember that

Life is better when you have a Lhasa to love you.

Best wishes for a happy, healthy, and prosperous 2013!
