Simply having a wonderful Christmas time


December has flown by for us. I can hardly believe tonight is Christmas Eve!

Sorry it's been a while since we've posted last, but we have been busy with getting ready for company. Baking, cleaning, cooking, and cleaning (did I say that already?), and it does go in that order because every time you cook, or bake, or do anything it seems, a giant mess appears for you to clean up. Sigh...

   But amidst all that, we have also been doing some fun things as well.

   We bred our rabbits, Steve+Rosie and Simon+Sarah-Jane. 
Alright, that in itself is not especially fun, but come the middle of January, we should have some pretty fun results!

The bunnies have really enjoyed living in our warm basement, instead of in the sub-zero temperatures of our garage like they did last winter.
Rabbits actually do very well in the cold, it's just Becca and I who don't like going out in it to defrost water bottles.

(Not everyone wanted to hold still for a picture)

We went to see the new Hobbit movie, Desolation of Smaug, with our home-school group last week. 
That was most enjoyable.  :D

"Da, why are there dwarves coming out of our toilet? Will they bring us luck?"
(For some reason, that seems to be the only quote stuck in my head)  

We discovered, and watched all three seasons of BBC's Robin Hood.

Hopefully after the holidays, we can find a moment to do a review on it, because we really liked it. Even though at the end, we were very sad, and all we could say was "Allan! Allan! Allan!"
(No pressure to watch the whole clip, you'll get the idea after a few seconds)

And our expressions looked just like this (That's Allan by the way, Allan a dale)
We could tell you why, but that would be a spoiler!

I got my hair cut!

This picture was kind of my inspiration. 

I do miss having long hair a little, but short hair is really fun. I'm going to donate the 12 inches that got cut off to Locks of Love (when I remember to get it in the mail). 

Our friend Mary made us some adorable dolls as Christmas presents. Can you guess who they're supposed to be?

And that's all for now! Check back soon: we'll try to get a Christmas jam session recorded and have that posted tonight or tomorrow.

Merry Christmas!


  1. Those dolls are cute :) you definitely look different with short hair.

    1. Didn't she do a good job? We thought they were fun. :)

  2. I KNEW you cut your hair! Mom didn't believe me, but it definitely looked shorter when I saw you took the dog out for a walk! I love it!

  3. Haha, thanks!

    Is this your first time looking at our blog? It's fun to hear from you!

  4. ADORABLE haircut! And ADORABLE rabbits! I can't wait to see the baby bunnies. What are baby bunnies called?

    (Also, sorry for getting Star Trekkin' across the universe on the starship Enterprise under Captain Kirk! Star Trekkin' across the universe, boldly going forward 'cause we can't find reverse... stuck in you guy's heads. xD I'm not actually all that sorry... Mwaha.)

    P.S. That's not Alan! That's Steve! Steve! Steve! Steve!

    1. Thanks! Baby rabbits are called kits, like baby fox. :)

      Haha! "It's life Jim, yet not as we know it" (see, it's still stuck in my head!)

      Have you ever seen BBC's Robin Hood?

  5. I LOVED The Desolation of Smaug although I had to wait until it came out on DVD in April to see it. But I get to go and see The Battle of the Five Armies in the theater!! It will be my first time in a theater so I am really excited.
