I hope everyone had a great Christmas!
We certainly did. Either Santa has loosened up on the requirements for making it onto the 'nice' list, or the wee dram of "aqua vitae" that Mom left for him (and the gourmet dog cookies left for the Reindogs) helped 'grease the wheels' so to speak, because we did quite nicely by Santa! Not only did we get tons of snow right before Christmas (thanks again, Tank!), but we did quite well in the pressie department, too. We got a couple of 'Skinneeez' (of which we have no pictures, because while they have no stuffing, they have squeakers in them, and Abby has totally de-squeaked one of them - the other one is probably in hiding...), a snake stuffie (that has miraculously remained intact - for the moment), a bunch of bully sticks, some Jumbones, and a couple of containers of gourmet dog cookies. Thanks, Santa!!! (And thanks, Granny and Grandpa!)
Anyhoo, we got up early on Christmas morning so we could get in some quality early-morning zoomies before Mom and Dad went skiing... (Skiing on Christmas day is a tradition.)
Mom and Dad came home and we got in some quality bitey-face time
Note to Santa: Next year, could you take my sister and bring me a hamster instead? Thanks - Fiona
Mom and Dad did the pressie thing and we had roast chicken for dinner (and Mom let us have a little bit in the kitchen, on account of it being a holiday and all!). We had a quite evening snoozling. All in all, it was a perfect day.
I do have one question: when does Santa start making his naughty/nice list for next year? He takes at least a few days off after the Christmas rush, doesn't he?
I'm thinking we've got a couple of days where Santa won't really notice our behavior...
Although I'm going to reiterate my request for a hamster. Somehow my little sister has gotten, well, not so little any more, and there are more and more scenes like this:
Seriously. What is up with that?!?
She is getting WAY tougher to take down. And as often as not, it is SHE who is taking ME down. *sigh*
At least I am still Queen of the Zoomies!
And Queen of the Frisbee
Where Abby is, uh, Queen of, uh, Sitting in the Snow...
Happy holidays to everyone!
