Today was all about treats.

There was still a little bit of snow on the ground this morning…

Good morning from Northside…

Day 17 of my Lego City Advent Calendar…

My work dropped off this holiday care package this afternoon…

It was a pretty great bag stuffed full of all sorts of treats. It was very nice of Grey to do this and hand deliver all these treats.

Good evening from Northside…

For dinner tonight, we made one of our Lou Malnati’s Chicago-style deep-dish pizza that we got in the mail yesterday from JJVE…

What a delicious pizza! It was such a good pie so cheesy and delicious.
Thanks again, JJVE!

For dessert, we had a couple of little mini cheesecakes that Genifer picked up from Taste of Belgium after she was done having lunch with her coworkers…

Those little cheesecakes were really delicious as well.

And this showed up in the mail for us today…

Thanks again, mom & dad! We love us some pizza. Especially delicious Taft’s pizza! We’ll definitely be putting this to good use very soon. Hopefully, we’ll be able to wait until after Christmas.

Tonight, we watched Ava on Netflix. It was like a female Jason Bourne or John Wick or something. And Mack actually came upstairs and crashed out on the bed while we were watched the movie…

Ava was pretty good. Very action packed.

In my Timehop today, the logo I designed for Cincinnati Public Radio popped up from two years ago. After a lengthy design process, the new logo was finally unveiled and then showed up on Cincinnati Public Radio’s website

Next, it started turning up pretty much everywhere around Cincinnati. Like on their Twitters…

And then it was a 2019 GD USA Award winner. And I still think that’s pretty cool. Thank Timehop for letting me relive this treat.

Today was a great day and was all about lotsa of great treats. 😀🌄🛍️🍕🍮📺🦕❤️

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.
😀🌄🌯📺⚽️🎁🦕❤️
