Hi everyone! We hope you all had a great Christmas! We did! Mama, Gramma and Grampa went to visit their relatives on Chrismas Eve, which meant that on Christmas Day they got to spend the whole day with us!
We were so excited on Christmas morning when Mama showed us all of our presents. Grampa even took a video of us opening them, but then he deleted it by accident. Boooo, Grampa! We'll just have to tell you what we got.
Both of us dogs got big Dingo meaty bones! They taste like meat! They are so big that Lily's bone actually looks bigger than her! When Lily unwrapped hers, she was afraid she wouldn't be able to lift it up, and she was just standing there licking it for a while. But she figured out she could carry it, and she's been carrying it everywhere! The two of us have a game. We each hide our own bones for safekeeping, and then we try to steal the other dog's bone so that we can have two!
Lily also got eight Kong Airdog squeaky tennis balls. EIGHT! She was so excited she started jumping around and playing with them all right away! Mama tried to take a picture but Lily was moving around so much, it was just a blur. All day long Lily was desqueaking balls. She can now take a squeaker out of a ball in less than a minute!
Trixie's second present was a Wiggly Giggly ball. Mama thought she'd like it because she thought it would move around by itself, and she thought Trixie would play with it the way she played with the Zuzu pet that she eventually broke. But the Wiggly Giggly ball only made funny noises and didn't move by itself, so Trixie didn't really care about it. Mama might get her a different ball, with a motor this time, for her birthday in March. For now, Trixie is happy enough with her giant bone!
Sammy-Joe also got two presents. One present he got was catnip bubbles! They are just like regular bubbles, but they smell like catnip. Mama has to blow bubbles for Sammy, and he tries to catch them. Unfortunately he always pops them! He gets aggravated that he can't eat the catnip, so Mama gives him some real catnip when they're done playing. Sammy-Joe also got a cool little ball that lights up and twinkles, so he can play with it at night. Unfortunately he already lost it. He may have hidden it somewhere but he's not telling us! Anyway this is what the ball looked like the last time we saw it.
Mama got Grampa a Beatles Monopoly game, which the humans played on Christmas. It is kinda like regular Monopoly, but instead of houses and railroads and stuff, there are albums and tickets. You have to get all of one color of an album in order to build listening parties on your spaces. Mama had a lot of different colored albums, so Grampa and Gramma kept asking her if she wanted to trade for things so they could build listening parties. So Mama ended up owning four concert tickets, which meant any time anyone landed on a concert ticket they had to pay her $200! She only owned one color of album, but she had enough money to build three listening parties on each space, so then people had to pay her $1000 when they landed on those spaces! Thats how Mama won at Beatles Monopoly. We know, it sounds very confusing to us, but Mama says its the coolest game ever! This is a picture of the game, in the very beginning when Mama wasn't winning yet. (Mama's place is where the round Coke bottle is,)
For Gramma, Mama got a back massager thingy that buzzes a whole lot and massages Gramma's sore back! And for the whole family Mama got a waffle iron so they could make waffles for breakfast.
As for Mama her favorite present from Gramma and Grampa was a camera, which she used to take all of these pictures! (There are a lot more, mostly of the doggies, so we're going to put them on our Facebook page.)
Oh yeah, wanna see our Christmas tree?
And here is all of us (except for Sammy-Joe) in front of our Christmas tree!
And so, friendsies, that was our great Christmas! It may have been our best ever! We hope you all had a wonderful day too. By the way, you can now find our blog on Networked Blogs!
