Merry Christmas Everybody! May you have a very happy and blessed Season of Joy!
As for me, I`m taking a small seasonal break (in which I will make new comics, and try to stay more then 1 day ahead of schedule). Once Upon A Donna will return after the New Year.
So happy New Year too!

Relish the Relish

I can't remember which cousin said that, but the they did eat almost the entire jar at supper. With help of course. Although some family friends have taken to eating the relish with a spoon instead of putting it in a sandwich. And then there's the Infamous Pickled Bean Incident.
Tomorrow is Christmas Eve, and also my Mom's Birthday! So happy Birthday to my caring, and giving Mother!
And may you all have a very Merry Christmas!

Zero Grip, Strong Pup, and Mischievous Bro-in-law.

Shortly after this we switched Olie to a Halti instead of a Harness for walks. She was just too strong and my boots had zero grip.

The Snow Beckons...

Our front lawn was littered with Christopher sized indents in the snow that year.

Do You Wanna Go For Ice Cream....

It's not that people who live here, where the wind hurts your face when you walk outside, are stupid. It's that we're crazy.

At the time Erin had a bowl cut, which made her look a WHOLE lot like Oliver. My other siblings were in this concert too. It's fun to compare them at that age to their own kids now!

I Didn't Do It!

It's true, she didn't. She was, however, sleeping on the couch when it fell over. The sound in the third panel is of Olie jumping off the couch,and trying to get grip on the hardwood with her nails.

I'll just quietly join in...

This really is the best part of the song.
The version we sing is from John Denver and the Muppets:Little Saint Nick

This was my favorite tradition as a kid. Typically we weren't allowed to open the Wish Book until either December or the first Sunday of Advent. But there was occasionally exceptions.
