So I thought I could catch up…but it simply isn't' going to happen…not with holiday photos or stories…it's already February 1st tomorrow…it's time to move forward.

So you'll just have to believe me when I tell you how perfect the trees were this year…the best ones I've had here yet…if you saw the you tube videos down below a couple of posts then you saw them…if not, then here's one photo for you..alright 21 photos…but that's all you're getting.  Time to move on…it's Super Bowl Sunday for gosh sakes!

So we begin with Xmas Eve…and our annual seafood feast…nothing but lobster and crab!  We cover the table in newspaper and pile the discarded shells on the top and just roll it up when we're done and toss it…easy peasy!

Help in the kitchen from Cal, it was awesome to cook with him!
My melted snowman birthday cake that my freaking amazing husband made from scratch all by himself!

He also made this chalice for me out of a piece of wood
from our property!

The big birthday tradition here at Casa De Schneider…everyone stands on the dinning room chairs and dances to the
Beatles blasting...THEY SAY IT'S YOUR BIRTHDAY!!

Two days after Xmas hike





My guest room in January…this isn't even the half of it…all the ornaments and decorations filled the room….at least they were out of the rest of the house …it was like the Xmas that time stood still…I just got it all put away a week ago!

 We had Ray's big 62 birthday on the 19th and we have Case's 21st coming up on the 15th!  Can't believe he's is 21…

We have new tenants moving in this weekend…a mother and her ten year old daughter…ahhh..she's just too freaking cute!  She wants to be a writer and an artist…so hello!  It's like having a grand baby around…Ray said she's stole his heart already…so yay for girl power around the old abode.

And most everything right now is me working on my book and the book blog…attempting to finish up the second book, almost there…and working like mad to refresh the book blog and open it up to other authors…I'm attempting to become one of the top "go to" spots to find YA Fantasy…I'm working as a host for other YA book blogs/tours and am doing my own interviews and articles with authors.  It's been really really fun and super far.

So if I don't see you for a while, you'll know where to find me…just hop over the Pressed Leaf Publishing, Home of the Benjamin McTish Series..and you'll find me there…getting ready to host a Global Blog Event in's going to be huge, so keep your eyes wouldn't want to miss out on this.

As always..thx for all your support..and to besties…mucho mucho love…xox juner
