Happy New Year!

Today is the Winter Classic Alumni hockey game in Philadelphia. Matt was a season ticket holder for 15 years, so he was so excited to see the 'old' players out there today. Especially his beloved Eric Lindross.

Here's a few pictures of the alumni and me from 2008. These guys hang out where the audience comes in the door and just chat and take pictures! I LOVE that!

This is me and Bob "the hound" Kelly

Me and Gary Dornhoefer - he's not playing today but looks great!

Me and Bernie Parent (Goalie)...The popular slogan was "Only God saves more than Bernie Parent"

For you sports fans, keep watching HBO's 24/7 build up to the Winter Classic game tomorrow. It's fun to watch the players and see what they do off the ice. However, be advised........... there's LOTS of "F"'ve been warned...:)

Happy New Year!

Ice a cake.

f you have 2 1/2 minutes of nothing to do, please feel free to watch Matt ice a cake with music and his animals near by. His beginning and ending comments make me laugh.

Walk on Main Street

Violet, Does that sign say cupcakes? Yes Quincey, but my humans won't allow us to have any, let's go.

Violet, are there books in this book store or just shirts and hats? I don't know Quincey, we're not allowed in there. AND, I heard they have Blue Hens in there too!

Violet, Why are these bikes decorated? Qunicey, It's Christmas! everyone is festive.....even with their bikes!

Violet, What do you think? Should I get alittle off the top? YES Quincey you should! :)

Violet, isn't there supposed to be a manager here? Yes Quincey, but I can't find it either.

Violet, your mom sure does take a lot of pictures! Yes Quincey but we're too damn cute NOT to take pictures of us! And we get ALOT of attention when we walk together on Main Street!

Q visit

My brother came over today...let the games begin!

We like to chase each other around the patio.

Doesn't matter which way....

And then I rested.

And then Quincey rested on the dirty, filthy, well used floor.

Days off.

Mom and Dad were off today.
They saw the big guy!

Daddy at Michael know....the judge on Project Runway.....well, he has a store....M&D just looked didn't even go in. Tooooooo rich for them.

Daddy picking up the 'how to decorate your tree' book in Pottery Barn. He said..."What the heck is this?...a book on how to decorate a tree? That's ridiculous!"

He continued "You put the tree up, lights in and ornaments on the tree. What else do you need to know?"

Simple guy.....simple decor.

Chocolate chippers.....and Nana's ceramic Christmas tree.

Don't worry, we had a good walk too.

Don't I look like a hunting dog??

New Cocktail

Mom and Dad had a 'Lifetime Movie' kind of day. You know the kind.....a nice main street, sprinkling of snow, shopping, hand in hand, la, la.....

Whatev'....... Obviously I was not with them.....

They had a new drink call Spiked Apple Cider.

Mom had one and was glad for lunch ;) Next time she'll have one at home.

Spiked Cider Cocktail Recipe - From Iron Hill Brewery
You'll need......

Granny Smith Apple

In a Collins Glass (tall skinny- just like me- haha) add 1 granny apple slice (we skipped this)

Fill glass with ice and top with Apple Cider, stir or shake and serve

Anyone have any good cocktail recipes to share?
