The slightly intoxicated snowman.

27 times today I had to pause and remember what day it was. Tuesday? Thursday? Friday? Oh, Wednesday!!!!!

Gift shopping is complete as well as the food shopping. Bring on the madness. Did I day madness? You know what I mean...funness.
I feel like I am up to my eyeballs in Christmas and pre-birthday. (Linds turns 16 on Tuesday!)

Ok, I took 25 minutes out of my day for some fun with Nelson; the traveling snowman.

No, I didn't take Nelson with me to the store, but he did applaud my use of reusable bags. There is such a thing as green snowmen.
And then I showed him the tomatoes I just picked! Not the best place for me to set them though.
 You know how nutty I am. 

We are having such mild temps. And when I say mild, I mean I only broke out in a sweat 4 times today. 83 degrees?? C'mon Old man winter, help a sister out!

Anyhoo...he wanted to sit under the chickee hut and enjoy the views.

A sit under the chickee is nice accompanied by a glass of vino.
 What? He wasn't driving anywhere!

Well, one glass of wine proved to be too much for this guy.
No, he's not planking. He's puking. 

I told him enough was enough.
But he didn't listen.

 Funny thing is, he is a fun drunk. Not mean at all. And he didn't break anything.
I did catch him trying to drunk text Rudolf...but I saved him the embarrassment.  

Down for the count.
Again, not planking....sleeping!

Plop plop, fizz fizz oh, what a relief it is!

We have our big Italian feast on Christmas eve. I am expecting 17 wonderful peeps this year!
If you decide to join us, please bring your own plates and silverware!!

I will catch you on the other side of Christmas!!!

I hope your weekend is filled with all the love you can handle, all the laughs you can muster and JOY-out-the-ying-yang!!! {Ouch?}

Bee safe out there....cause *someone* loves you!!!

{I am SOMEONE!!!}


  1. ha ha. I like Nelson. He and I are soul mates I think. That's what I look like when I throw up in the hot tub and sleep on the pool table. I don't have such red tomatoes though....
    Have a great Christmas! and Happy 16th to Lindsay!

  2. You just can't trust those Snowmen, can ya?! And I hope that Coach provides you with some extra Pool Cleaning services for Christmas! ;)

    Merry Christmas, dear Suz! I'd be there for Christmas, but then I'd have fewer than a dozen sitting around my table trying to figure out where the heck I was... ;)

  3. Merry Christmas to you and your peeps, too, Suz! Have a blast at your party, and please post pics when you have recovered.
    P.S. Is there such a thing as AA for snowmen?

  4. Sending our love and wishes for a Merry Christmas.

  5. You are funny! Everything you have to do for Christmas and birthday and still you find time to have fun. You definitely have a good imagination and I am sure your dogs are glad the snowman got to be the center of the joke rather than them!
    Hope you all have a VERY MERRY Christmas - - and don't melt the snowman!

  6. And we love you too---you and the drunken Snowman!!!!! ha ha

    That is the luckiest Snowman in the world though ---getting to visit you in your gorgeous home...

    Hope you have a fabulous Christmas... Don't work too hard!!!!!

    Loads of HUGS and Merry Merry Christmas.

  7. OH MY SIDES HURT!!!! I tried to warn you about him. Looks like he's fitting right into the Florida sunshine :)

    Mwahahaha Nelson!

  9. Looks like Nelson needs AA!
    Merry Merry Christmas and Happy Birthday Sweet 17!

  10. A very Merry Christmas to you!!

  11. And I love you, too!!!

    I LOVE that you guys do the Italian Christmas Eve. I picked up a few of the Seven Fishes for my mother today. Anyone for calamari? ;-)

  12. Oh Nelson is not going to want to go back to Utah after all that fun you've been putting him through. And your dinner. yum.

  13. That's awesome, I think Nelson should visit good old Minnesota sometime! LOL

  14. you certainly are someone!!! one of the very best someones i know :)

    do you need to borrow some silverware? you are welcome to come find it. you know, wherever you hid it. christmas village, on Jesus' head, on my picture shelf.... xoxo!!!!!

    keep that snowman in line!!! and linds, too :) love you!

  15. I wanna hang out with that snowman dude. He looks like he really knows how to party.
    And what's up with Wednesday night blog posting? I'm not used to that!
    Merry Christmas!

  16. The snowman adventures are hilarious! And I am write there with you on the days of this week, today I woke up thinking it was Tuesday, it is THursday - I think!

  17. That is the ONLY way I could beat that dude at pool, when he has drunk all your wine!

  18. Nelson had a lot more fun yesterday than I did. ;-)
    Wishing you and your family a very merry Christmas and a great start into a very happy new year!!

  19. A Christmas Eve Italian Feast sounds wonderful, but our plates don't travel well, so I guess I'll pass. But have a great time even if I can't be there. I just hope you can keep Nelson out of the wine.

    I hope you and your family have a very Merry Christmas (and Linds has a Happy Birthday).

  20. I will totally be there, and I'll bring my own plate . . . and silverware too. Do I need to bring a glass?

    Nelson is a hoot! A lush, but a hoot!

  21. Oh, Suz, you spin a fabulous tale of Nelson, the Snowman Lush. Ha, wait a sec, that's Snowman Slush, isn't it?! Better put him in the freezer for a few hours to get him ready for his next party drink... :)

    Thanks for being that "someone" in my blogger life..I wish for you and your peeps a wonderful holiday, full of fun and food, drinks and dancing!! Delight in the season, Merry Christmas to the Green Floridian, LOL....big hugs from
    Elizabeth in Mississippi

  22. Oh hon, I'm not havin' my big Christmas blast 'till the 31st so I'll grab a plate and be right over! Heehehehee!

    There nothin' sadder and a drunk coldhearted snowman! I loved this!

    Reminds me of when I had Bilbo the travelin' gnome. He wasn't happy with all the hard work on the Ponderosa.

    God bless ya and have a wonderful Christmas with your precious family!


  23. Haha love the snowman.

    Have a Merry Christmas!

  24. What a fun post. Hope your dinner is a big success!


  25. Loved the strategically placed tomatoes. ;) I finally blogged since Thanksgiving. Officially on break for 3 WHOLE WEEKS so, I have some catching up to do!! Happy Holidays!

  26. HAPPY BIRTHDAY, Linds. Do not, I repeat DO NOT let anyone get away with that old "Christmas-and-birthday" thing they try every year.

    Suz, we need to have a serious talk about Nelson. He was such a sweet and naive snowman before he came under the influence...I mean your influence.

    Enjoy the holiday and keep Nelson sober.

  27. I think I've had that snowman over before!

    Merry Christmas! And Happy Birthday to Linds and you both.

  28. I'd been told that if I logged on, I should check out Nelson's shenanigans.....and I'm glad I saved them for Christmas Eve morning.

    I should have had Jake tell you about Nelson's, uh, problem with wine. We have a rack that is supposed to hold (36) of the 750 ml bottles...yet some had always been missing all this year....but we never found him puking or passed out.

    Put him out in the sun...that'll teach him.

    Merry Christmas Suz!! (By the way, EVERYONE keeps inquiring about the "two beautiful girls" on the front of your Christmas card. It's a gorgeous, gorgeous shot.

  29. HA, HA, HA! That is so hilarious!

  30. It's been a while since I've visited (life hasn't been cooperating lately), but I thought of you and your experience with Rosie when I saw this... I thought you might get a kick out of it :) I hope you and your family had a nice Christmas!

  31. Merry Christmas! I won't even say I hope your Italian feast went well and was fun,because how could it not?? These pics of the snowman are so funny, I like your sense of humor. Cute.

  32. LOL Oh you are so Joyful!! Feeling more caught up now. Hope Christmas was wonderful...and my weather envy has begun!
