A Wonderful Christmas!

Catching up here…we had a wonderful Christmas.  The girls (Riley and Chloe) got lots of yummy treats and fun toys.  Riley got a new Wubba, a stuffed animal, and some treats.  Riley was good and didn’t mess with any of the presents or ornaments (with the exception of knocking a few off with her tail)…bad Chloe decided to take a stroll under the tree and on top of all the presents.  Don’t know what we’re going to do with that wild old girl!

We took the girls to go see Christmas lights on the 23rd.  They enjoyed it immensely!

The nativity scene Riley decided she needed to bark at…I guess the plastic figurines were being just a little too still for her liking…I told her she can’t bark at Jesus, is she crazy?!?!
Then, on Christmas Eve, Aunt Baddy and Uncle Jimmy (my sister and brother-in-law) came over for lunch, then for appetizers that night.  We decorated cookies and put together a gingerbread house.
Riley patiently waiting for something to fall on the floor.

 Christmas morning!  Aunt Baddy and Uncle Jimmy came over to open presents that morning.

Riley got Zuke’s treats!
Then, after we opened presents, we got dressed and went and saw the Sherlock Holmes movie that’s out.  Then we went to a Chinese buffet for lunch and had leftovers for dinner.  The dogs were very happy to see us when we got home!

Riley LOVES her Grandpa!!
All in all, we had a wonderful Christmas and hope you all did too!

More Christmas Happenings

My family and I went up to Busch Gardens yesterday to have some fun at “Christmas Town.”  My brother-in-law and I managed to take some really silly pictures but we got a bunch of good ones that I won’t share on here but here are some of the good and goofy pictures:

It was 32 degrees yesterday.  We got home around 10:00 last night and when we were 10 minutes from home, ADT (our alarm system company) called us to tell us that our alarm had gone off.  The first thing I thought of was that whoever had broken into our house had probably let the dogs right out the front door as soon as they got in there and that I would be missing Riley for Christmas.  The second thing I thought of was that all of our Christmas presents had probably been stolen (you know, like you see on cheesy Christmas movies!).  Luckily the dogs had tripped off the sensor and everything is fine and dandy.  No thanks to the police department though who arrived after we were already home and had checked out the house to make sure it was good.

Christmas Happenings

Last night all five of us humans loaded up into my sister’s (Aunt Baddy’s) car and headed up to see the Christmas lights at one of the local parks here.  We hadn’t been to see these particular lights in a few years so we enjoyed seeing what lights they had added on.  Here are some of the 87 million pictures my dad took:

And this right here is the essence of Chloe and Riley’s relationship…Riley wants to play and Chloe wants to have none of it!!
