More Christmas

It's been two weeks since Devon left us, and we are creating a new normal at home.  Tanner and Smokey have been super snuggly lately and seem to follow me around more than normal.  It is nice to have them around.  Christmas was a nice break, as Auntie and I went to our parents for a couple of days, and then they came to our house for a couple of days.  We enjoyed our time together...The boys have had some special treats as well...let's take a look...
Tanner enjoyed a plate of Christmas sardines...Smokey came over later and had some too, but he seems to be more of a tuna fan...I'll try to keep that in mind for next year :)
Smokey has loved the down throws on the couch...he has a nice warm nest and spends his day snuggled down in it...
Here is the tree in the living room...and yes, I should have taken the clothes racks down first!  Smokey is laying on the back of the you see him?
This is the tree in the study, which is at the front of the house...
The black tree is in the dining room, and here you can see it and the tree in the living room...
This is Devon's new ornament this year.  We picked it up at the beach this year.  It was chosen because first of all it was blue, which is Devon's color, and secondly because Devon loves fish :)
This one is a bit harder to see, but it is our family ornament this is a snowwoman, holding three snow babies (they are in the colors of my boys) and then dangling from it are rings in colors of all 4 of my boys.
This is Tanner's new ornament because he still has a major sweet tooth and it was green!
Smokey got a new goose ornament...would have been more perfect if it had been purple...
I got several of these festive ornaments because they are easy to just poke into the tree, and also because they are in the colors of my, purple, green, and blue.
Well, there you have is continuing and we are moving along with it.  Very thankful for pictures and that I have another week off work next week to spend with my boys.  I'm sure they will be ready for me to go back to work on the 7th!
