Oh, that face...

It's no secret that with two married daughters, I'm old enough to have grandkids, but alas, I have none; only a grandpuppy and grandkitties. Vinny, (Vincenzo) a French Bulldog, is the newest member of the family and he belongs to Erin and Keith, our St. Louis kids. Spoiled is a word that comes to mind. Notice the quilted barn coat and rhinestone collar. But hey, he's so darn cute you can't blame them. 

Puppy portraits...
(Gee, I love this new camera!)

Erin and Keith

and Aly and Chris,
waiting to unwrap gifts.
Our tradition is to open them Christmas Eve.

I was in my pajamas and glasses, so no photos of moi.
you'd thank me.

I'm looking forward to the New Year,
but first our Anniversary, tomorrow.
Hope you are recovering from the Christmas Rush.
I spent all day Sunday in my Jammies.

love to all,


  1. Hi Debra, yesterday and today have been pajama days for me. :) Vinny looks warm and cozy. You have a beautiful family. Happy holidays and happy anniversary. Blessings, Tammy

  2. Aly looks just like you! Great looking family!

  3. Hi Debra,

  4. Debra, that grandpuppy is adorable. Your daughters are beautiful and look just like you!
    How blessed you are and don't give up, those grandkids will be coming. xoxoxoxoxo Rhonda

  5. Sweet puppy! Love the jacket and collar:) Hope you are all rested up and ready for the New Year! Have a blessed day! HUGS!

  6. Merry Christmas Debra, that pup is adorable, I would put him in rhinestones and a quilted jacket too! Hard not to spoil such a cutey!... your family is beautiful! Happy Anniversary, I hope it is wonderful! Theresa xoxo

  7. You're right- when I look at Vinnie, I can't help but smile.

    All day in jammies sounds perfect- hope the rest of your week is as sweet.

  8. Merry Christmas Debra! What a handsome family {puppy included!!} ... both daughters are gorgeous, but I have to say Aly could be your twin!!

    Wishing you a happy new year my friend ...

  9. Your pictures are wonderful. I think I have camera envy. All you need to do is look at my pictures and see what happens when you have g'kids and a g'dog -- crazy!!!

  10. Vinny is so cute! I just love that breed of dog. I have 2 grandogs also.

  11. It's Monday morning and I'm extending my PJ stint thru today!!!

    happy new year dear friend

  12. How cute! I love that the coat was quilted in a dog bone pattern. No jammies or sleeping in for me as we had guests and also church on Sunday. Happy Monday to you!

  13. Hi Debra! What a beautiful family you have and I love the little grand puppy's face. We had a Boston Terrier for 15 years and she looked so much like your grand puppy. Little Bulldogs are the sweetest things. Hope you kissed that little punched in face! :)
    Be a sweetie,
    shelia ;)

  14. What lovely couples, Debra! I hope you had a wonderful Christmas and Christmas Eve! I did manage to get dressed yesterday even though I had the house to myself and our blizzard started. I did a little bit of everything though because there was nothing that HAD TO get done. I was very pleased that I was able to start a couple of projects and actually finish one, too!

  15. Debra , My goodness the puppy is too cute -You were really able to capture some great photos -Your dtgs and SIL are very cute too :-) Ahh pajama days don't you just love them!

  16. Have a wonderful anniversary on the 3rd day of Christmas. How blessed you are to have a true love. :)

  17. Oh this is so much a Show & Tail link up post!
    Who could not love that face. Not spoiled at all, either.
    No grandkids yet for me but plenty of furry love to go round.

    I am living in longjohns, sweats and slippers. Good enough?

  18. Debra...a gorgeous family and such a cutie granddoggie! Happy Anniversary :)
