We had just finished putting up the Christmas tree when Coco decided that this was a tree she could nap under.
Needless to say, the Sous Chef was not pleased, particularly since the spot Coco had chosen was right under her favorite ornament....the white teddy bear!
Years ago, right from the time she first saw it, Lucy decided that the white teddy bear ornament was her toy. Every year we find the teddy bear on the floor. Every year we move it and down it comes again, and again. We don't want to put it up too high for fear she will jump right into the tree to get it. If you don't believe me you don't know the mind of a terrier...especially a Westie.
Coco, on the other hand has spotted the white doves and the owl up top but can't decide how to tackle the climb. Too many ornaments luckily stand between her and the bird.
Think I'm kidding?

My heart stood still when I spotted her yesterday, again circling the tree, with her eyes fixated on that owl. Bad idea but too late to take down. Luckily, she decided to take a nap instead. Another disaster averted...for now.

Between now and Christmas I will be posting more often than I normally do. Those of you who read my blog with coffee on Sunday mornings will find postings during the week instead, as Lindaraxa also has a social life,of sorts, and will be busy as a bee during the holidays.
Tomorrow I take my five year old granddaughter and her teddy bear, Flora, to a Christmas Teddy Bear Tea at Callanwolde in Atlanta. Callanwolde is a magnificent Gothic Tudor house and the former home of the Candler family, founders of Coca Cola. It is now a fine arts center. Every year the house is decorated for Christmas and there are lots of holiday events including this sit down tea and visit with Santa. I can't wait and will definitely post about it.
There are lots of Christmas recipes and menus on the blog so check out the Master list or do a search. You know the drill.
