Another great Sunday.

The sky was very pretty this morning…

Good morning from Northside…

We had our normal weekend outing to the grocery…

The Valentine’s Day stuff is out in force…

Both the panda and the train were in the international aisle…

These balloons were very cheerful. I liked the little frog…

And Ice Bear was still trapped inside in the claw grab machine…

We stopped for Biggby coffee

It was time to say goodbye to our Christmas tree again…

We made BLTs with seasoned curly fries for lunch…

Xavier beat Providence with a buzz-beater and Wichita State handled Cincinnati.

The sky was pretty this evening as well..

Good evening from Northside…

This evening we finished Manhunt: Unabomber. It was pretty good. Very interesting.

And twelve years ago today, I got started on Twitter…

I don’t really post a lot on Twitter, or really on any social media anymore. But I sure do scroll through my Twitter feed all the dang time. I wonder how much I’ll keep looking at Twitter after January 20th. This is probably going to help a bunch…

It sounds like it’s already making Twitter a better place. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸΌπŸš‚β˜•οΈπŸŽ„πŸ₯ͺ❀️

MERRY CHRISTMAS!

MERRY CHRISTMAS! It was a chilly Christmas in Cincinnati…

And we woke up to a white Christmas…

We got the dogs a bunch of new dog toys and blankets for Christmas…

I took a little video of the dogs coming in from outside to discover all their new toys…

And now the dogs have a very full box of toys…

After the dogs got to play with their toys for a bit, we took them out on their walk…

Good morning from Northside…

Genifer made Magic Middles for breakfast this morning…

Magic Middles are delicious…

After breakfast, we opened our presents and exchanged our gifts. My parents sent us this hilarious 2020 ornament…

A huge thank you so much to my mom & dad for all our wonderful Christmas gifts…

There was a bit of debate over this advent calendar…

I thought we should start at one, count along with the days and end on twenty-five. Genifer thought we should start on twenty-five and countdown to one and end on the star. And you can see who won that debate…

This afternoon we headed up to West Chester to celebrate Christmas with Geri. We took some shrimps, a meat & cheese tray, a whole bunch of dippers and that was our Christmas dinner. We had a wonderful time spending the afternoon with her.

When we got home, we took the dogs around the block…

Good evening from Northside…

After the dog’s were done with the freezing cold walk, we watched a bunch of basketball and called it a day. We had a really wonderful Christmas day. We hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas as well. πŸ˜€πŸŽ„β€οΈ

Merry Christmas Eve!

It was a grey and rainy Christmas Eve morning in Northside…

Good morning from Northside…

We ran over to the grocery to pick up a few little things for Christmas dinner…

My go-to game for time wasting is We Bare Bears: Match3 Repairs. In the foyer of Kroger is one of those infuriating claw games…

And inside the infuriating claw machine was Ice Bear from We Bare Bears…

We got our Christmas items and headed over to Biggby for coffee...

When we got home, it was time for the very last day of my Lego City Advent Calendar…

And there you have it. The Lego City Advent Calendar was so much fun. I’m really going to miss putting together a little Lego set every morning…

I hope they do a new one next year. Or I’m going to have to track the Lego Star Wars Advent Calendar.

And Mack was on his new dog bed the entire time I was in our studio office…

This happened rather unexpectedly…

We took the dogs out for their evening walk around the block…

Good evening from Northside…

Genifer made a bunch of delicious Christmas cookies…

We wrapped our Christmas presents. Mack watched to make sure I was doing it right…

And we put all of our presents under our tree…

Tonight, we watched The Midnight Sky on Netflix. A movie about outer space with George Clooney. I thought it was good. Genifer didn’t really care for it.

We hope everyone had a wonderful Merry Christmas Eve. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸŒ§οΈπŸ›οΈβ˜•οΈπŸŽπŸŽ„β€οΈ

Special deliveries!

When we woke up this morning, we found Northside got a dusting of snow…

But there wasn’t much snow on the hill at the end of our street…

Time for Lego City Advent Calendar day 15…

Genifer ordered Chipotle delivery for lunch….

Chipotle was delicious. I hadn’t had Chipotle in forever.

Both Arsenal and Leicester played at the same time this afternoon. I kept an eye on both of the matches while I was working…

And both of my teams lost. Arsenal is really in a death spiral right now.

We got a couple of special deliveries today. The first package was from my parents…

And there was a wonderful box of Christmas cookies in their package…

There were so many delicious cookies in that box. We cant wait to try them all. And now we also have presents under our tree…

Thanks, mom & dad! Our second package was from TastesOfChicago.com

And inside were two Lou Malnati’s Pizzeria Chicago-style deep-dish pizzas…

And two huuuuge chocolate chip cookies…

Thanks, JJVE! We can’t wait to try our pizzas and those cookies look terrific!

Later, we took the dogs around the block. It was kind of misty outside this evening…

We couldn’t even see the hill across the way on the other side of the highway…

The hill was just barely visible…

Good evening from Northside…

Today is my Timehop was this photo…

It’s interesting that when I saw this photo my mind went to a completely different place when I saw animal mask than when I saw this originally. And there was this one too…

That would have been the best white elephant gift ever. To this day, I still kick myself for not buying it.

Hi Oscar. He’s so fuzzy!

We had a great Wednesday. Thank you again for the wonderful Christmas gifts.
πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸŒ―πŸ“Ίβš½οΈπŸŽπŸ¦•β€οΈ

We did a lot today.

Oscar was getting his hair cut today, so we were up pretty early on a Saturday morning before his grooming appointment…

Good morning from Northside…

Oscar’s appointment was set for 8am but we were running a bit early so we stopped at Biggby for coffees

And then it was back over to Petsmart in Oakley…

Oscar had gotten so fuzzy…

We kind of wanted to get him a haircut before we headed out to the coast but we just ran out of time. Sorry Oscar, today’s the day…

While we were sitting in the car, enjoying our Biggby and waiting for Petsmart to open, the sun started to rise above the horizon…

After we dropped off Oscar, we ran over to Lowe’s…

After we got some more Christmas lights, a new wreath and some odds and ends stuff, we headed over to Home goods in Rookwood…

We got the boys a bunch of new dog beds and some other stuff. And then we went next door to walk through T.J.Maxx…

While we were in T.J.Maxx, we got the call from Petsmart that Oscar was ready to be picked up…

And Oscar looked so handsome!

Western Michigan-Northern Illinois and Michigan-Penn State were both on at the same time. We put Western on the TV and Michigan on the tablet. I thought the Western game was going to be the one more worth watching…

Western beat Northern Illinois and Michigan lost. Again. After the games, I went out placed some holiday lights in our front yard along our bricks…

And then we went to pick up some hoagies from NYPD

Deliciousness. NYPD’s hoagies are out of this world.

Later, we took the dogs on their evening walk and the moon was huge…

Good evening in Northside…

As it started to get dark, we kept going outside to check out our lights…

And we finished putting the lights on our tree…

Genifer did amazing job with the holiday decorations inside the house…

We had a really good Saturday. We got a lot of stuff done today.

Later, we watched some Netflix and chose Hometown Holiday, which was a very bad, poor man’s version of a Hallmark Christmas movie and Falling Inn Love, which was actually really cute.

Long weekends are the best. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸΎπŸ›οΈπŸ’‘πŸŽ„β€οΈ

Hello Christmas tree.

Happy Friday after Thanksgiving! And good morning from Northside…

We put up our Christmas tree out this morning…

We started to add lights but two sets were burned out leaving us with a Christmas tree that was only half-lit …

Unfortunately for Oscar, Genifer found his reindeer antlers…

We ran over to the post office…

We sent a package out that we probably should have mailed last week but I completely forgot about it. We’ll see if it still arrives in time. I hope so.

After we mailed our package, it was Skyline time!

Genifer had a deluxe burrito. And I had a 5-way…

Skyline is so good. I saved my cheese coneys for later. After lunch, Genifer kept working on bringing out the Christmas decorations and I went out to work on the front yard a bit…

We could see our T+G again…

We took the dogs on their evening walk…

Good evening from Northside…

Tomorrow, we’ll work on some Christmas lights…

We had Thanksgiving leftovers for dinner…

Later, we watched How the Grinch Stole Christmas and the Minion Holiday Special and then we watched 47 Hours to Live on Netflix. The Christmas specials were terrific. The movie was not so great.

But today was fantastic. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸŽ„πŸ β€οΈ

More Christmas carnage.

More Christmas carnage...

Poor Christmas tree.πŸ˜¦πŸŽ„β€οΈ

Christmas carnage.

Here’s more of the first Christmas carnage we first noticed on our walk last night

Poor Christmas tree. It’s kind of sad really. 😦

Good evening from Northside.

And it was a very rainy night in Northside…

And on the way home, we saw our first Christmas carnage of the season

Good evening from Northside. πŸ˜€πŸŒ„πŸŒ§οΈβ€οΈ

MERRY CHRISTMAS!

We exchanged our Christmas presents this morning…

Santa was very good to us. We went over to Genifer’s brother’s house for a little bit before heading out to her mom’s in the afternoon for Christmas dinner and more gifts…

When we got home, we set everything on our dining room table so the dogs wouldn’t get into things they shouldn’t be getting into and it looked like Christmas exploded all over our dining room. What a terrific holiday mess…

We had a really wonderful Christmas in Cincinnati. And we hope everyone had a very Merry Christmas! πŸ˜€πŸŽ„πŸŽ…πŸŽβ€οΈ
