Did you know that Blogville is the best place on earth?
Thanks to Ann of Zoolatry, we have a fabulous Christmas header and ecard! The header will be up until February 2, 2014, the last day of Christmas for Roman Catholics. (Christmas runs from December 25th through February 2, the Purification of the Blessed Virgin Mary, a period of 40 days). Please click on the link and leave her your POTP as she will be undergoing minor surgery this week.
We had a fabulous ThanksDeerMas! WHN COOKED! yes, you read that correctly- WHN COOKED! We had turkey, white meat only no skin, and WHN also made stuffing, gravy, green bean casserole, and au gratin potatoes for Dad - the leftovers should be done tonight! This was Snoopy's, Anna's, and Hope's first ThanksDeerMas and they all had a good time. Chip and Tasha are old paws at holiday events with the DWM but they had a good time too!
WHN and Dad abandoned us for a couple of hours on Black Friday, but came home and took us along for the second half of their trip- we were dressed up in our car coats and sweaters and we were pretty good in the car while they went to Joann's for stuff. We were even given special treats for the car ride !
Dad started the Christmas decorations on Saturday and put up Snoopy's tree and the big tree in the living room! Only lights are on the big tree so far, but Dad and Snoopy relax watching the LGB trains going around the tree!
WHN has been busy sewing up a storm- the place mats for this year's BLogville auctions are almost done and the SLimmer Pugs stockings too! We know how slow she is but they will be worth the wait- just ask Roxy, Ernie's girlfriend, OSO from the WDA, and Ranger the Scottie- they loved how theirs came out! Prancer Pie and Lily Belle are left, and they will be done this week! WHN has been dividing her time between the sewing and the tea lights for the WDA new charity- Paws2People, so much so that Dad bought her a second embroidery/sewing machine to help her keep up with the demand! She now has a Baby Lock Esante, along with her Baby Lock Ellure Plus and her Janome 3160 QDC! Christmas and anniversary gifts were early this year for WHN!
WHN and Dad are so thankful for the support that she received this year from BLogville when she had to start taking anti depressants again, and through her multiple episodes that rocked her back on her heels this year. Thank you for helping her cope and letting her take the time that she needed to start getting back on an even keel again. (And no, the house in Ohio is still unsold!)
We the DWM have been raking in the Christmas cards again! We really love the way that Susie and Sidbites are counting ther cards and we encourage you to do the same- just multiply each card received by the number of four leggers to give you the actualy number of cards! We have received over ten in the snail mail and four ecards, so our total haul to date is fifty snail mail cards and twenty ecards to WHN and Dad's ZERO!
Finally, we the DWM celebrated a special anniversary on 30 November- that's right! Snoopy's first Gotcha Day! He has come a long way since he joined us and is responding to his training/exercise regimen and medication- our fearful tough guy is a much happier stud muffin!
