Nessie helped us make gingerbread cookies, make hot cocoa , combat sickness with some essential oils and also helped me wrap about a million presents before Christmas.






We have done loads more over the last two weeks but I will have to post them over the next week or so when I have more time.

We hit two households as always for Christmas (my husband's cousin first and then my mom's) and then we had a more casual NYE at a friend's house playing Cards Against Humanity. Fun times, it's become our laid back tradition.

Here's Pixel in my Christmas village under the tree:




And here she is last night, ringing in the new year with a little bubbly:



My friend's neighbors are crazy and they all compete to set off the biggest fireworks so this shot was taken from my friend's driveway as we watched the show:


Happy New Year!  Grin

Dani and I went on a walking tour of monuments and stuff downtown on the last day that stuff is still open. This is about a 5-mile walk.

Starting from Capitol South, we headed to the Library of Congress (which is actually multiple buildings, this is the fancy one)


Next door is the Supreme Court


And across the street is the Capitol


On the other side of the Capitol is the Capitol Christmas tree, which I think is a lot nicer than the national tree. This one is from Oregon and is covered by handmade ornaments from kids. There was a weird gathering of people with Samoyed dogs next to the tree, there were at least 20-30 dogs - I don't know what that was about.


There are a lot. of. sculptures. This one is at the steps of the Capitol


This one is in the Hirshhorn sculpture garden


The Smithsonian castle (background) is just offices, but the Arts and Industries building is the second oldest Smithsonian museum. It is currently being renovated and is closed.


This is the National Mall, facing the Capitol. They did a lot of work on the turf a few years ago so it actually has grass instead of just being a giant mud pit like before.


The Mall runs between the Washington Monument and the Capitol.


The newest museum on the Mall is the National Museum of African American History and Culture, I haven't been because they have been using timed tickets for entrance and it has been really tough to get tickets.


The Washington Monument has two colors of stones because there was a 20+ year break in construction and a different marble source was used for the second half.


The WWII memorial has engraved Kilroy graffiti


The Lincoln memorial was the most crowded of the places we visited.


The Vietnam Veterans memorial is tucked away near the Lincoln Memorial and was decked out with wreaths


Constitution Gardens is a bit bare in the winter


This wacky little house is wedged between the White House and Washington monument. It was the lockkeeper's house for a canal that used to run nearby.


The National Christmas tree. See what I mean? Kind of small, really boring. The park service used to have a "yule log" nearby which was a pit full of giant burning logs, but sadly they "improved" the area and got rid of the pit.


A low key day in Lafayette Park across from the White House. Just the usual random protestors, tourists, secret service. and some people doing dance routines for tips.

Thanks! One of these days, I really need to sit down and document my village in a cohesive blog post because every year people love it and ask for details all over fb and other social media. LOL The short version is that I have building from two series of long-discontinued, officially licensed Disney Christmas Villages that I painstakingly gathered over years of secondary-market collecting. I've got the entire Dept 56 Disney Parks Village set which came out in the 90's but I'm missing a few buildings from the Disney Parks Village (released within the theme parks by Disney itself) that was discontinued about 8 years ago.

Here's a look at the village from last year (no visitor) just to better show the buildings:

Thanks for the detailed look at DC!

That is just the coolest! It must have taken ages to gather. I would love to do something like that. My family are huge Disney (especially park) nerds and I just love that it has Walt's statue! I'm going to have to look into this lol

Yeah it's taken a long time to get this many pieces. I've been at it for years. LOL The "Partner's Statue" was actually a Hallmark ornament released this year. I know my Hallmark sold out and I can't find it on their website, but here's what it looks like and the info: https://www.hookedonhallmark.com/2018-Partners--Mickey-and-Walt-_p_39855.html (I think it was like $20 so obviously this place is charging a lot but maybe you can keep an eye out for it on ebay or something too.)

Awww, Dani got to go all around DC!

I'm thinking someone got the better end of this swap...  Shocked

Hahaha, there has been *plenty* of dental action here too, at least for my cats. Cat #1 had all his teeth extracted in November (stomatitis) which was fairly grotesque and not at all photogenic. Cat #2 has a dental next Monday with near certainty of losing his two remaining canines.

Since almost everything is closed starting today because of the shutdown, and if this thing goes on too long my employer (fed contractor) will run out of funds and stop paying me, Dani is going to be helping me with exciting activities like "cleaning out boxes in the basement" and laundry....
