In the pink

I'm one of those crazy people that starts listening to Christmas music around November 1st.  By Thanksgiving I have the all Christmas, all the time, radio station on in my car.

My favorite song this year is I'll Be Home For Christmas, the Michael Buble version.  I love the old, Sinatra, Crosby sound of Michael Buble.













































Over here at Red Gate Farm, we have guests for the holidays. 

















They're staying in my pretty, pink and aqua room.  The room that's got some frills to it.






















They flew in last night to Vancouver BC and we drove up to pick them up.  They brought this new little family member.

















Her name is Frejya... named after the Norse goddess of course.  What miniature dachshund wouldn't be named after a Norse goddess?

We also enjoyed the best waffles ever, a recipe from my mother in law.  And bacon.  There's always gotta be bacon.


















Enjoying the start to a fantastic, holiday week.
Chris at Red Gate Farm

  4. Hi Chris ... So glad everyone arrived safely, Frejya included! Your guests will be so comfortable in the cozy room you've created and it looks like you're running a bed and breakfast with that gourmet meal! I know you're all going to have a fun time together ... enjoy each moment!
    I too start listening to Christmas music right after Halloween and my hubby is now going crazy and can't wait for me to be done with it! Some songs even make me weep (everytime) thinking about past holidays with loved family members who are no longer with us. For me, it really is such a sentimental time of year. HAVE A HAPPY HOLIDAY WITH YOUR WONDERFUL FAMILY!!!

    I absolutely love all your ornaments. They remind me of my youth and my folks. I have had the best time looking at your collections.
    Yep, Christmast music starts at my house on Thanksgiving and I love it. I find this time of year to be very sentimental and the music brings back wonderful memories.
