Christmas 2009: As Seen on TV

Thanks to my daughter Gillian, we had a themed Christmas this year: all our gifts had to have been featured in an infomercial. We had the best time shopping for tacky (cheap) products that no one would actually buy for themselves.
A selection of items that we received. There's more, but I couldn't get them all together for the picture. Some, like the Slap Chop, have already been put to use!
Speaking of the Slap Chop - have you seen Vince's Slap Chop infomercial as a rap remix?

ADDENDUM: I must say that it took all the stress out of Christmas shopping this year: no agonizing over the "perfect" gift for friends and family - it was all goofy!

Snow in Houston!

Snow on the roof! When's the last time that happened in Houston?!

My 2 youngest, Gillian and MJ, with Libby, our English Mastiff.

Ok - don't get your knickers in a twist - Being raised in Chicago (yes, I'm a damn yankee), I know this doesn't count as real snow. But it's as close to snow as we're going to get down here, and we're grateful for the half-dozen flakes that we got.
Tonight when I went out to see if it was sticking, a raccoon jumped out of the dog's igloo doghouse and took off towards the woods. Even the Texas coons are cold!
