Thanks Everyone for coming along for the ride this year!


We’re all set for Santa’s arrival with our usual Almond Butter Kiss Cookies and Guinness.


This year we stumbled across Dr. Who’s Christmas Invasion and with Santa spotted somewhere around New Orleans I think Christmas might better hurry up and get here or Roan might explode.
