Measure Twice And...

Huh? Who's hat? Has Santa been by already? Checking on Grace to see if she has been ever so good? Ohhh...he is measuring the fireplace surround to see if he can get Brian D. down the chimney! Good going Santa! Of course, since it is a Gas fireplace, getting down the non- existent chimney will be a feat in itself. But I digress... I just wanted to show off my Christmas cluttered mantel before Henry had a chance to destroy it. would seem that he has taken a liking to the objects on said mantel and is doing his best to bring each one, a little at a time, down to his level. Oh Where did I put that water pistol?

After so much free publicity perhaps Brian will just knock on the front door...well he should, don't you

I am hoping that he will come thru for your ultimate Christmas gift:>).


Rosemary said...

What would you do if Brian really showed up? I would love to see that.
You crack me up!
Merry Christmas to you and yours.

Melissa said...

Hmm, what's the best part of that mantle scene? Oh, yes, the picture of your two beautiful children above it!

Merry Christmas Sue!

Shhh...maybe Santa is just Brian in disguise! Don't tell anyone!
Thanks for the nice comment about my dress, btw!

I wonder who this Brian D. guy is?
I love your mantel, Susie. It looks great!

I love it!

Sandi McBride said...

Now I have the solution for Grace...just seal off the fireplace and make Santa bring Brian D. through the front door...that's what I had planned for Santa and Cary before Cary up and died on me....
Merry Christmas to the entire family and I hope Santa is good to you!

Your mantel is beautiful Sue! My favorite part of it is the portrait of your gorgeous children!

Merry Christmas!

Love the mantle! My kitties just use our as a springboard to get to the top of the cabinets on either side, so I have to keep ours very simple...but they've amnaged to find every other little thing and haul it off somewhere. Can we all say bottle brush trees on the shower floor??

Wishing you and yours a wonderful Holiday Season filled with joy and a Happy New Year!


Sandra said...

Merry Christmas to you and your Family!!!!


Sheila said...

Christmas wouldn't be Christmas without a cat to get into the decorations..!
As for Brian D...maybe leave a key under the door mat just in case he can't make it down the chimney..!

Love and best wishes for Christmas and the New Year.

Oh dear - bad Henry! Here's hopin Brian gets the message to come through the front door. Now wouldn't that be a site under the tree Christmas morning! All the very best wishes to you and your family for a very Merry Christmas.

To my sweet Susie Q. forgive me for not coming by as often but you know things with me have taken a turn in many ways. With family support I will get through this hopping along..I think! Yesterday I fell with the crutches but I'm ok.

Your blessings in the portrait..just beautiful!!

I wanted to hop by and personally thank you for your friendship your humor and for sharing your Rabbit Run Cottage with us.
May the spirit of Christmas leave its rich blessings in the hearts of you and yours dear ms. Susie Q!
