What a pretty picture...it reminds me of the days my kids were little and had holiday plays at school. I miss those days. Harry Potter was delightful! Thanks for the cheer! You are amazing.

Ces said...

Good morning my dearest Renee,
I hope not. I tried her head for size but her FPOT is way too big for my skull. She is super mental ninja and her hypothalamus is oozing with tenderness and compassion. But I tried to look for a shoe and clothes fetish brain cell and none was to be found, so I gently returned the FPOT to its rightful owner. I think she needs a lot of kisses to her head right now, she has a major project implementation and has a scheduled Go-Live soon. Bless her heart and yours my dearest friend. It is freexzing here today and I do not want to hear that Canadian phoo-phooing that you and Manon want to give me calling my weather balmy because you live in an icebox!

Ces said...

I don't know anybody else who loves her more than you do and I believe she does you too!

Freezing here! It's make my joints ache.
45°F or 7°C

Your -40°C...isn't that global warming. Shouldn't it be -50°C.

Shouldn't that make your hair stand on ends and freeze your snot?

Love you Lovey

Fa la la la laaaa! I love HP. Did you get your copy of the latest DVD? I did. I bought it and told my family they were giving it to me for Christmas. :) We'll have an HP marathon over the holidays. Come on over, I make an incredible fudge. Seriously, I am famous for it. Well, in my own little circle, anyway! haha! Love to you my friend! fa lalalalalaaaa Pam

Deborah said...

studio lolo said...

I love love love the artwork!!

I had a greeting card line years ago and one of my most popular designs was a Santa on tippie-toes with a garter belt, bra and hose and the inside said..."Now we don our gay apparel!"

I know I turned the words but it was hilarious. Most of the buying customers were gay and loved it ;)

I hate this cold. Waaaaa, California calls me!

xoxoxo

glorv1 said...

That was enjoyable. I'm ready for the day now. Have a great weekend and I'm taking my Harry Potter collection out so to watch all his movies this weekend. Take care.

Manon Doyle said...

This is an absolutely lovely picture!!
OMG.... I can't believe Ces is still complaining about the weather in Texas!! She wouldn't do well in Winnepeg girlfriend!! We'd have to dress her up like an eskimo! 45 is a friggin' heat wave here right now!! I'm putting Ces on the *no bitchin' mode" lol!!

love you Renee!!

manon xo

Marie S said...

Silver said...

Nice and fun(ky) ;)

Manon Doyle said...

I'm laughing my butt off!!! Renee.... do they make a fur that covers the mouth? Ces is not made of that hardy Canadian stock that we are!!! We can drive 90 miles an hour in blizzard like conditions! EH!!

Diana Evans said...

oh what fun!!! I love listening to Christmas songs....

love my word verification:
Bleven....

lol I beleive n you!!!

Hugs
Diana

Manon Doyle said...

Renee.... Ces doesn't realize that -40 degrees celsius is just a little chilly ... and that we have more miles on our snowblowers than our cars.... our ears also perk up when we hear "hockey night in Canada'! hee, hee
Ces must be worried that it's too cold to tan down there!! lol

Deborah said...

HA! I was just catching up on you, Manon, and Ces! Where do they sell those coats that zip over the mouth? No wait, my hubby would use it on ME! You, Ces, and Manon are toooooo fun! PAJAMA PARTY PLEASE!!! At my house where it is warmer.
**blows merry kisses** Deb
Oh My. word verification is woomeats. Is that something Canadian????

Ces said...

How rude! How rude! You Canadians you and that supposedly twin sisterfriend of mine, all pretending to be lovey-dovey when you are planning on chicking me with fur in my mouth, SAY WHAT?! Is that some kind of sick Canadiene/Winnipecker humor? I am going up there blizzard and all to spank you and I am not using any hand or strap. I will just look at you with my piercing eyes and you will know the meaning of Global Warming!

Ces said...

I am going to Deborah's to take refuge from this frigid humor!

Julie-ann Bowden said...

You always share such beautiful art. Love this piece!
Lovely hear from you Renee. Hope you are picking up and feeling loads better!
You can have flowers in your hair and your daughter's, this would be wonderful.
I don't want Christmas to get in the way of your painting, and not to rush it. One of the reasons for delaying it. So when I do start it will have a lot of love in it.

Hugz!

Julie

Deborah said...

Renee, I am laughing so hard at your comment. We will all be in the jacuzi so perhaps you could just sit in the nippy weather, just next to the jacuzi....Karli just watched her Santa email and used a colorful word to describe me!!! teehee

Ces said...

Yes, yes, yes. I am mean. I apologize. I totally misunderstood that both you frigid Canadians wanted was to protect my lips by zipping my coat over it! YEAH!...and I was born yesterday. Hmnph!

Ces said...

Hahahaha! Emotional blackmail. You think you can end this by bringing Bella into the fray! YOWZA! I will go tell Bella! I am so glad you are up and about today instead of being stiff like a snot in that icebox of yours!

Deborah said...

Is Nathan single????????????
And does he like colorful language. Oh ya, DUH. You are his mother! teehee

madtexter (corey james) said...

"Deck your balls with lights so jolly..oh wait, that's the WRONG song, isn't it?

...gay apparel...I wear that ALL year long.

Yaya said...

Oh, Renee! I am so loving all the wonderful Christmas art on your blog! Love that cranberry highball recipe too! ;) Thank you for sharing such joyful, happy links!

Draffin Bears said...

lakeviewer said...

Oh, it so goes with my story on my blog, from my childhood. Ahhhhh!

staceyjwarner said...

Love the artwork and video...I still have yet to see the Harry Potter movies, believe it or not...saving to watch them with Goom.

much love

@eloh said...

Sometimes I think I'm the only person that didn't read Harry Potter.... even though I was at Wal-Mart and Books A Million at MIDNIGHT more than once to get the newest book. (Kids... can't live with 'em and can't ditch 'em).

I really enjoyed this video and now I will be looking forward to seeing this episode on DVD.

BT said...

I really enjoyed the Harry Potter video and Decking the Halls. Fabulously cheerful Renee.

Ces said...

Oh dear lord! Renee, you are very naughty, you know that? You are full of mischief and I love you.

Sue said...

Great HP clip and carol and wonderful piece of artwork. I also enjoyed reading your comments LOL...getting the ole violin out for Ces and her 45F 'freezing' temps.

Hugs to you my friend!

Yoli said...

Very pretty!

Arija said...

Oh surely not yet dearest, I am nowhere ready for Christmas yet....

Rob-bear said...

That is really beautiful, and fun, Renee.

Marion said...

What a perfect video to go with the song. I can't help it, but every time I hear "Don we now our gay apparel", I think of some drag queens we met in Florida when I was about 21. LOL! I love you more than chocolate, sweet Renee. Blessings!

rochambeau said...

Hi Girlfirend,
I've been without my computer, it broke, but is now fixed.
I haven't forgotten you! Not one bit. Love to you.
Nice finery you share today.
Love,
Constance
