Wordless Wednesday: Taking Care of Dad

If That's Not Love What Is?

Can we get any privacy in this house? The Paparazzi is incredible. Here we are sharing a private moment and now it is splashed all over Blogville. They have no shame.

Mama is slowing returning the house to pre-Christmas status. The tree is almost ornament free. You have no idea how much that tree can hold. Our Christmas toys have not yet gone away. We are trying to hide some of them, but Mama always manages to find them.

Our snow cookie supply is holding out. We are starting to enjoy ice cookies as well. It is a new treat this year. Much like the ice cubes Mama gives us in the summer, these we can have without having to wait for Mama to give them to us.

We are getting back to our walk schedule now that the holidays are over. Mama and Papa donned their winter gear and took us out last night. Surprisingly we were the only dogs out. It seems others either went earlier or decided not to brave the cold.

Happy New Year

We had such a busy Christmas vacation we did not have a minute to blog although we did get a few comments in here and there.

First, we would like to thank everyone who sent us cards. We got so many wonderful compliments on our card wreaths and Mama had to admit most the cards were ours.

Second, we want to wish everyone a happy and healthy New Year. We had a wonderful New Years Eve celebration. One of our favorite relatives was here and we got so much attention.

Christmas was amazing, too. Our Florida Grandmother spoiled us with new toys. A friend bought us toys and treats on Christmas Eve. Santa had bones and new toys for us in our Christmas socks. (Dad always donates Christmas socks for us to chew through as our Christmas stockings.)

We were in such a mellow mood on Christmas Eve we let our NC Grandma brush us out when we found our tree house trees left us with tree sap on our coats.

Mama told Papa she is going to start taking down the tree today. We will be sad to see it go as it is one of our favorite places to hide. However, it will give us back more room to run around, so that is a good thing.

Those Tempting Sheep

Sheep the final frontier. This is what stands between me, Katy, and Santa. I try to avoid them, but just this morning I found one in my mouth and Mama was yelling at me to drop it like cops do on those criminal shows she loves. I have no idea how that sheep popped into my mouth. However, Bailey says confess and Santa will forgive. So Santa here I am, guilty as charged....again. I am sorry. However, could you make those sheep less taunting?

The cards are still coming in and we may in fact fill that second wreath. Thanks for all the wonderful holiday wishes.

Wreath 2 Filling Up

Wreath 1 is completely filled, mostly with our Christmas Cards. Wreath 2 is also filling up with cards from our blogging friends. They are adding lots of festive cheer to our holiday! Mom is having a tough time getting shots of the 2nd wreath with her phone as she doesn't have room enough to back up to get the whole wreath in the shot.

Two Grandma's and one Grandpa will be arriving soon for Christmas. None of them are staying with us, but they will all be visiting, especially for the big Christmas Eve party. Daddy's parents bring the BEST pressies. Since they come on Christmas Eve we even get our stuff early!

Dear Santa

Dear Santa,

We know about the Santa Cams, so I thought it best to fess up before you got the official report. I attacked a plastic canvas sheep yesterday. I know the rule is herd not hurt the sheep, but I don't know what came over me. It looked so tempting sitting there among all the Christmas toys and I just couldn't resist picking it up and giving it a little love. Thankfully, Mama stopped me before any serious damage could be done. Who knows what the penalty is for destroying a manger scene.

I am truly sorry dear Santa and am really trying to only play with my Christmas toys. It is hard when Mom and Dad have these tasty distracting items to play with all around me. I will try harder.

We are Good with Santa

We went and had our chat with Santa on Sunday. It took two pictures, but we have our proof that we went in case there is an issue later with our presents.

Bailey earned Santa points when he helped keep a young pup from bolting away from Santa. Dad helped get the dog to sit on Santa's lap so the pup could have her picture taken with Santa. We are hoping Santa remembers all those good deeds when it comes time to visit our house.

Mama promises to post the picture with Santa after Dad scans it in.

As you can see, the first card wreath is almost full and it only has two cards belonging to Mom and Dad. The rest are all from you, our blogging pals. Mom has two wreaths, so we she will have room for the cards that are sure to come from the Grandmas and other family.
