Merry Christmas All!




Yes... it is still Christmas.

For all of you who think it ends at mid night on Dec 25th, today is the Second Day of Christmas, with tonight being the Third Night of Christmas and the Twelve Days culminating on Epiphany, January 6.

Our Twelve Days began splendidly on Christmas Day with our family here at Sweetside (our home in Amherst) with many gifts exchanged and a feast that included lobster tails and scallops. Mmmmmm Mmmmm Mmmmmm.

Then we had a great Second Night (last night) welcoming about 25 family and friends. We made Christmas Chili, cooked over a bonfire outside and had a toasty fire and an array for food inside as well.


We also welcomed our new grand-dog, Basil (bah zil) from A Place to Bark, of course!! He is an incredible sweetheart and very smart. He loves to play/wrestle with his big sister Lexi, another A Place to Bark pup who joined us last Christmas, and snuggles up for long naps with humans or our cats and elderly beagle, Chloe.

Third Night (tonight) is the annual Brew Party over at Chapin Street and Monday it is over to the Berkshires to see Nana and my siblings.

All great fun!!

Hope you are yours are having a wonderful holiday season!

Pictures include: Firepit scenes; Jess and Lauren in a snow storm getting Basil (formerly Fred) from the transport folks; Baird with Lexi, Basil and Chloe; Aaron handing Basil to Ben (who was a bit in shock for a few minutes, that Jess actually DID get him the puppy for Christmas!); Aaron with Chloe, David with Lexi and Ben with his new baby Basil (nicknamed "Bud"); Lauren napping with Basil.

CAN YOU BELIEVE THIS ADORABLE PUPPY WAS HOMELESS, STARVING AND IN-LINE TO BE "PUT DOWN" ONLY 4 WEEKS AGO ??? WHAT A CHRISTMAS FOR HIM. PLEASE...IF YOU ARE GETTING A PET... ADOPT A STRAY!
