|Candy and her two pups|
In case there wasn't enough chaos and merriment in our household on Christmas Eve, our Maltese, Candy, decided it would be a good time to birth her puppies. She did very well for a first timer with a house full of guests and has proven herself an excellent little momma!

In the meantime, I managed to work up a terrific migraine and spent three days doing my own whimpering. A Frova tablet combined with lots of sleep (well, sort of sleep) and it finally broke last night, so today I was able to visit my dad for his 82nd birthday! Now there's a proud poppa!
All of my sisters and many of our children and grandchildren were there to celebrate, so we had a grand time. It was wonderful to visit with my sisters, and though they begin leaving tomorrow, there are a few more days of visiting before we all return to work, family and commitments.
In fact, we're have a "gumbo cook-off" here on Friday. I likely won't be blogging on Friday night as a result, but I'll give the results of the gumbo tasting and try to get a few pictures as well. Keep in mind, however, that there will easily be 25 people in and around my house on Friday, so who knows what I may be able to pull off!
