So long Christmas tree.

This evening we took down our Christmas tree. It was such a pretty tree…

We picked up one of those huge Christmas tree bags at Michaels…

We can’t wait to see you after next Thanksgiving Christmas tree! πŸ˜€πŸŽ„β€οΈ

#TBT Pause for paws.

Back when we lived downtown, Milan and I used to walk the heck out of all the parks along the Ohio River every single day…

We would walk around four miles a day together. When we moved into our house in Northisde, I started a Milan shrine in our office…

And this is what my Milan Shrine looks like today…

Always remembering all the good times with the bud dog. πŸ˜€πŸΎβ€οΈ

Pause for paws.

When Genifer got home this evening, she found our holiday penguins on the floor. When she picked them up to put them back where they belong, she noticed bot of the penguins were missing their eyes…

Apparently, Oscar had chewed the eyes off of the penguins and left both sets on the dog bed that is on our living room sofa…

He’s such a butt. But he sure is cute…

Later, he made himself a little OscarNest on our third-floor sofa out of a pillows and sweatshirts…

What a silly head. πŸ˜€πŸΎβ€οΈ

Happy holidays from Northside.

Before my work holiday party, we tried to take a nice Christmas in front of our tree…

Surprisingly, we don’t have a full-sized tripod. We just placed my Samsung Galaxy Note 9 on the little tabletop tripod and placed it on the ottoman in our living room. But the camera angle was a bit too low when we were standing up…

So we tried a few sitting down in front of our tree…

Sometimes you win and sometimes you don’t. This time we kind of didn’t but the results were pretty terrific and hilarious to us. πŸ˜€πŸ“·πŸŽ„πŸΎβ€οΈ

Pause for paws.

Mack loves to hang out under our dining room table. He’s always just chilling under the table when we’re in our dining room…

He’s pretty silly. Oscar is silly too. He’s been gotten into the habit of laying on our pillows on the bed. Tonight, we were sharing the pillows and he started resting his head on my shoulder while I worked on my computer…

And this adorable photo of Oscar also popped up in my Timehop…

This event has been blacked out.

I went to watch local basketball tonight’s showdown between the Norse of Northern Kentucky and those Bearcats from Cincinnati. I don’t think Cincinnati usually plays NKU. But at least this season, Cincinnati has played nothing but cupcakes. The only ranked team they’ve played so far was Ohio State and the Bearcats lost by 12. Anyway. I wanted to see how the Norse would do against Cincinnati. I tuned into ESPN3 to watch the game only to find the game blacked out. I don’t know why they have to do stuff that like that…

On Fox Sports Ohio was the Cleveland Cavaliers game, but I ended up being able to find the game through the Fox Sports GO app and then stream it to our TV through our Google Chromecast. Ugh. But by the time I finally figured all that out, Cincinnati was well in control of the game…

The Norse would fall to Cincinnati 78-65. I used to be pretty neutral about Cincinnati Bearcats basketball. I didn’t really care one way or another. But their coach just rubs me the wrong way. There is a smugness or arrogance about him that just really rubs me the wrong way.

After the holidays, I’d like to try to find tickets to go see the Norse play at home. That would be pretty fun. We’ve never been to a NKU Norse basketball game. πŸ˜€πŸ€β˜ οΈβ€οΈ

O Christmas tree.

We decorated our Christmas tree this afternoon. After Christmas last year, I bought an artificial Christmas tree on the real cheap online. We’ve hadn’t even opened the box it was shipped in until today. Assembling the tree was pretty easy. It consisted of just three segments and a base. We fluffed all the branches and we were pleasantly surprised with how good it looked. And it’s pretty tall too…

We added some lights and a bunch of ornaments…

We think our tree is very beautiful. πŸ˜€πŸŽ„β€οΈ

Checking in on the OscarCams.

We left for Dallas this morning. And Geri came to pick up Oscar…

Checking in on the OscarCams.

On our way home, we checked in on the OscarCams to see what the parking was looking like on our street. And then we looked to see what Oscar was doing…

He was just hanging out on the arm of the sofa like it was no big deal. It probably isn’t the most comfortable spot in our house. He’s a silly little dog. πŸ˜€πŸΎβ€οΈ

And I should probably figure out how to adjust the time on the OscarCams for daylight savings time.

Timehopping.

Looking down our hallway at the fam…

Thanks, Timehop! πŸ˜€πŸ¦•β€οΈ
