Literary Christmas Gifts (ok and some puppies and a baby)

A white Christmas in Georgia, can you believe it?  This was the view off our back porch on Christmas morning.

I've been meaning to post this since Christmas Day and, of course, I'm just now getting around to it.  I was very blessed this year by my husband and family and got way too many gifts, as usual.  Before I show you the books, want to see my favorite gift?

Sweet Luke got me the sewing machine I've had my eye on for a while (with monogramming feature!) and you can see the sewing kit my parents got me behind it.  So cute!
On to the books:

Luke also got me Compendium One of The Walking Dead, which I am LOVING, but will not be reviewing until Zombie Awareness Month in May.  But trust me, it's awesome.

The Hour I First Believed from my in-laws - Wally Lamb is one of my favorites!  AND the third volume of the CS Lewis' collected letters, which completes my set!

My parents gave me this beautiful Beth Moore Bible study on Jesus, which you can see has a prominent place in my bed, where I can study at night before I go to bed.

Generation Dead, another Zombie Awareness Month book, from Sugar Bear.

The Collected Stories of Eudora Welty from my big brother and his wife.  And Baby George of course.  I hear George is the one who picked it out.

Ok, now for the good stuff.  The puppies got a sweet present from Luke's boss's children, who were Chief's original owners:

They were extremely excited to not only be in the forbidden upstairs (where they immediately knocked half the ornaments off the tree with their tails) but also to be opening their first Christmas present.

 Puppy treats!

Merry Christmas!  I'll be back tomorrow with my New Year's Resolutions!
