peggy said...

a fun read today!!! Love that Mary and friends. How cute.

Terra said...

These all made me smile, the heart made of people and the Christmas tree dog and the others too. Thank you dear heart.

SweetMarie said...

Love all the puppy dogs, especially the black one that watches all food because it looks like our Rambo. :)

The tiger and child is beautiful!

I'm tired, tired, tired too! LOL

Ms. A said...

I'm tired, too.

A pretty face... SO TRUE! I've changed my opinions of some outwardly attractive people for that very reason. They were ugly inside. Also, some not so attractive people became beautiful when you see the goodness and beauty on the inside.

Lynn said...

Love the dogs.

Sandy said...

Thanks again for all the great pictures, inspiration and laughs. I'd like to copy a couple of those doggie pictures.
Have a wonderful weekend!

Good wrap up of everything :)

Ginny said...

One of your best posts ever, Sandie!! Wild day...now 10:00 P.M. I wonder if you are in bed? I love the first picture with the beautiful snow and star. And I laughed out LOUD with the nun video. Phil called down the hall "What's so Funny?" And I said he will see in a few minutes. Love the Christmas dog, looks suspiciously like Christmas Disco.

betty said...

I loved that heart of people. It really is an effort of love for you to put these Friday Funs on, Sandie. Thanks for doing it!

mail4rosey said...

Lots of good ones, and I love the cat instead of the lion starting the dog video. :) Merry Christmas to you too!

HOOTIN ANNI said...

That babe and tiger...wow!!!
And the 'gate left open and I'm still here'...the look on the dog's face is priceless. And that one with the 'food bag' sound, I must say, that's our cats too!!

Oh, and not to forget that top image of the snow and sunlight---almost biblical!!!

Granny Annie said...

Just went through the "I'll be watching you" scenario with Slim as I ate a Cinnamon roll and she was wishing for me to share.

Nikki (Sarah) said...

loved these. The dog ones are so cute...my fave..dog with lights.
Hey Sandie....hope the weekend shines for you. You're a kindred spirit and friend.

Eva Ason said...

Hugs

Lucy said...

I have grandson's, great grandson's, I am proud of. Love all of these. The Catholic ones were so funny.

Jerry E Beuterbaugh said...

I hope you-all missed out on much of the ice.

Jo-Anne Meadows said...

I always wonder how they manage to get people into a shape like that heart do they draw a big heart on the ground first or what maybe they have someone in a cherry picker giving directions as to where people have to stand.

Starting Over, Accepting Changes - Maybe said...

I can relate to "tired, very tired." It will all be easier next month, I am sure. Right now I need an Ambien and a funny story to take me into dreamland.

I hope you are doing well, Sandi.

I love all the photos but especially the Heart People!

Theresa said...

Your puppy pics always brighten my day. I am loving the holiday pooch with all the lights on him. My dogs would totally freak out if I tried to pull that one. And I agree, I would love a day between Saturday and Sunday :)

Tracie Nall said...

Great pictures Merry Christmas!!

I love the heart of people. That is awesome.

Dee said...

I am back to blog land...Betsy is working good and the dust in my life has begun to settle...all is well. I am catching up on your past posts and getting filled with laughter. I love the simplicity of your blog...it makes reading and looking at all your treasures a lot easier. :)

Nonnie said...

The food bag!!! :-D
And sometimes lately, I feel I've had an ugly heart. :-(

Lisa @ Two Bears Farm said...

That first picture is so pretty. And all the dog pics are fun!

Renae of Simple Sequins said...

oh Ms. Chatty Chatty, I have missed you.

My life is so busy with my church responsibilities and a sick relative and Christmas and December and money and fun and family and friends. Crazy.

I have tried to simplify my blog more and more lately and so will be posting only about 10 times this month, I fear, but my life is so not letting me blog much.

I loved 'The Lift' this time. By brother always said, 'you can't trust a pretty face'.

Nice to see your new post!

Wsprsweetly Of Cottages said...

It's wonderful to just burst out laughing ...and knowing that the one who posted it is your friend. Your DEAR friend! :)

The dog that is watching all you do and eat. Spunky for sure.
