Christmas roundup  
Merry Christmas! I wish you and your families the very best for the festive season.

We had a lovely Christmas here. Having some snow really helps get me in the Christmas spirit, and this year we've already had three major falls. We were also lucky enough to only be hit by the edge of the recent ice storm so the power stayed on (a non trivial consideration out here).

Can't wait to share the BIG news, which is my brand new PUPPY! The naming process was hard. I wanted something Superman related but my sister vetoed names like Shelby and Lexi. And many other names were out of the running because of other associations (like Lola, L-O-L-A Lola, Lo Lo Lo La Lola). But we finally settled on Tessa, which is just perfect. Here's a picture of her with my sister.


For more photos, here's a link to the album on Facebook.

Look at that precious Baby - she's gorgeous! And Tess(a) is a SV name!

Exactly! I was getting a little desperate until I thought of Mercy (vetoed) and then said Tess.

Puppy! Love your icon - I should make me a Tessa version.

What an adorable puppy. And, you're right, Tessa is the perfect name.
Jen: Krypto by the_dark_catjlvsclrk on December 27th, 2013 12:14 am (UTC)
She's such a snuggler - I worry sometimes about accidentally squashing her when she curls up around my neck. (Good things she's so small or she'd be the one squashing me.)

Awww! What a cute baby!

She really is. Good thing because she's a bit on the yappy side.

It's so tempting to pick her up all the time and smish her!

Congratulations!!! What a darling. She will bring you much joy (and a lot of sleepless nights).

Look at her little face!

Also, tell your sister she has insanely bright blue eyes. Very striking. :)
