I feel like the kitties haven't gotten much love in a while. On the blog at least.
Scout has gotten much braver lately and hangs out with me more. She is still TINY.
I got a new lens and I'm not very good focusing/aiming it yet. Sometimes this is what I get.
But sometimes it works! What a handsome boy!
Now if only I could get her to look at me!

We actually didn't stay home all day on Christmas. We went to my parents house around noon, and then to my grandparents house around 3. A lot of both our families live really close to us, so holidays are always busy.
My grandmother got this One Direction puzzle! She was thrilled as you can see.

here, along with some Sriracha lip balm! Travis LOVES that stuff.
Still loving their pajamas!
I really love him.
You have to get the present mess shot. Classic.
I got him a new hoodie, and a vintage army bucket. Among other things.
My sweet girl.lil Bub! The pastel portraits are by Chuck Hodi, I got Dr. Frank-n-Furter, Divine, and Pee Wee. What a trio! The book by Alex Gross, it is full of paintings over old cabinet cards! And the other prints are from Danny Brito. I have a ton of his work around my house, I really love it. My ultimate gift would be a portrait of us by him!
So ladylike Phyllis.
Our Christmas breakfast. We had rosemary bagettes, some raspberries, scrambled eggs and tempeh bacon. It was really delicious. The bacon is by Turtle Island Foods, and it's this one for any vegetarian readers who are interested! It is perfect on a sandwich!

Happy Christmas Eve! Here is my other post on my Christmas decorations. Now that they are up I'm so glad I took the time. I love sitting in the living room with the lights on. I'm working tonight, which is kind of a bummer, but Travis and I are having a little Christmas morning, just us tomorrow, then going to my grandparents house for lunch. We're hoping to see Les Miserables later in the afternoon! I hope everyone has a good day, if you celebrate.
My gnomes! It turns out I found 8 this year, plus a Santa in a similar style.
Our deer with some mercury beads.
A little built in shelf next to the mantle. The bottom shelf is the Harry Potter Shrine.
I love that deer's jaunty pose.
One top of the record table.
This tree was a lucky estate sale find. I still can't believe it was left on the third day!
This isn't Christmas, but I think we're getting built in book shelves against that wall in the back, so I'll be able to say goodbye to those mismatched bookcases soon! Yay!
The spun head Santa with the holly-ish body is one of my favorite finds from this year!I made last year.
pictures of it here. It is one of my favorite possessions!
Some blowmold Santa's with Merlin the squirrel.
He especially loves Red Cross stuff. He is trained to be a Red Cross Volunteer.
The pink one is my favorite. I love the little spun Santa too!
