Christmas Wrapping

Katy here for some reason Annie has completely unreasonably loud reactions to certain normal household sounds like for instance TAPE!!! You can only imagine how wonderful it makes this time of year and of course the prep for birthdays and other gift giving occasions. As you can see she's losing it while Mom is wrapping the last of the Christmas presents while I her loving sister am trying to calm her down. I hope Santa isn't seeing this as she was also chewing on Dad's shoes again this week.

Here's Mom trying to demonstrate to Annie that the tape is in fact harmless.

Then clueless as ever, what was it I was barking about again?

Helping Decorate the Tree

Mom often thinks we aren't helpful when it comes to Christmas decorating but look at me cleaning up an ornament before it goes on the tree. Santa are you watching?

Baby It's Windy Outside

We are glad the Tuesday rains are gone. However Wednesday brought a cold wind. Mom kept trying to catch Annie's lion look, but didn't quite get the capture she was hoping for as she was doing her morning cleanup. Katy's hair doesn't spread out quite as wide as Annie's does in the wind. Annie's gets a wild look to it.

The rain did desimate our snow pile a bit. While we want more for Christmas Mom reminds us our two Grandmas and one Grandpa have yet to arrive so weather is a factor in them making it safely to see us this Christmas. So we have to find out how to make our request specific, more snow cookies only at times that don't interfer with holiday travel. This is a good deal to expect from a dog but we are working on it. We don't want to miss seeing the grandparents on Christmas.

Dog Dad dropped the last of the Christmas Cards off at the post office for the Blogville Card exchange unless we discover we have people sending us cards we didn't expect. Mom has a few other cards to get done but she's moving along. Wrapping is the next big project. Since Annie has an objection to the sound of tape this is a really interesting project.

Christmas Card Wreath

The Christmas Card Wreath is beginning to fill. We finally got our Christmas Cards made and all our digital cards have gone out. Mom didn't have a complete supply of stamps so the first batch of cards will be leaving today. Dog Dad will be picking up stamps today so we can send out the rest hopefully tomorrow depending on weather. However, our cards should be heading out to all of you this week.

Our First Snow Track of the Year

Our first Christmas wish was granted. Snow cookies were delivered last night. Mom and Dad weren't as happy as their Saturday plans were disrupted. We however enjoyed the first delicious snow cookies of the season.

Sunday Dog Dad got out the noisy snow blower and created a nice wide snow track for us. Of course that doesn't stop us from going off into the deeper snow, but it gives us a starting point if we are feeling less than enthusiastic about going out into the cold.

Blogville Holiday Card Exchange

We love the Blogville Holiday card exchange and this year we swore we were going to be registered before Lassiter Chase and Benjamin had to remind us. However, Mom has been hunting since Halloween to find out about the card exchange and couldn't find a thing as it has a new host this year. Thankfully we have pawesome Sheltie buddies in Lassiter and Chase and they posted on our blog Monday to tell us how to sign up. So we thought it only fair to share with others who might be as clueless as we.

This year the Blogville card exchange is being hosted at Kylascott and you can find all the info you need to sign up here. The deadline to sign up is November 17 so you'll want to get your information in soon.

Looking forward to posting all my cards and seeing everyone else's card piles too.

Monday Mischief: Jack Frost Visited

We went out for our morning time with Mom last week and she discovered that Jack Frost had been out painting the yard. It has been a remarkably warm winter and this is the first full yard painting we've received.

There's something a little annoying about Jack. He makes our paws cold and you can't really eat him like you can with snow.

Mom says his art work will be gone when the sun is up for a bit, but we've decided Jack has nothing on a good snow pile you can eat and tunnel into.

Halloween Fun

Our neighbors turn their yard into a haunted yard every year for Halloween. We decided to go visit before it got dark and crowded with trick or treaters. Dad helped the neighborhood holiday atmosphere by playing creepy Halloween themed music that added to their scary sounds across the way. The kids loved it.

We love the attention we get. People are always telling us how cute we are and we get tons of requests to be petted. Just saying when you are cute who needs a costume. Mom did make us wear bandanas.

Annie was delighted that the Halloween flag featured a Sable Sheltie. The Patriotic one Mom found has a tri-colored Sheltie and she was feeling left out. Mom was surprised at how much this one looks like Annie if Annie would ever willingly wear a costume.

Mom has not been great about Blogging, but we are trying to check in on everyone when we can. We haven't seen news about the card exchange. If anyone has news please leave us a message. It is something we look forward to every year.

Thankful Thursday

Today we are thankful for air conditioning and snuggling. We love to snuggle, but with the warm temps it is too hot to snuggle without air conditioning.
