Merry Christmas (again!). So we just finished opening all the presents from under the tree and in our stockings and Dad’s taken the trash outside and Mom’s put all our unwrapped presents back under the tree so we can admire them the rest of today….whew! I was overwhelmed – so many boxes, so much tissue, so many ribbons and bows…..that is always my favorite part. I could almost do without the goodies Santa brings me (I said ALMOST!).
So what did I get you might ask???
I liked the “Greenies” treats but I think my favorite thing was a little white mouse on an elastic band with a plastic ring on the end. The orange worm was kinda cool too…….the one thing I didn’t care much for (in fact I tried really hard to bury it under the tissue paper) was that KONG Kicker thing (the big tiger striped thing with a black tail filled with catnip). The package showed a kitty holding it in its legs kicking it with its back feet and having a great time………purrsonally I don’t GET it……but I’ve never been one to really like anything catnip-ish. Poor Mom – she keeps trying it out on me though!!! After twelve years you’d think she’d give up. 🙂
What I really enjoyed this morning though was watching Mom and Dad open their stuff and playing in the wrapping………..
So, everything has calmed down in the house now – Mom’s got the turkey in the oven and all the other stuff ready to go….the house smells yummy although I’m not “big” on turkey (oh I’ll force myself to have a bit…..don’t worry!). Later tonight Mom’s apple pie will be cooking and making the house smell great all over again…….we’ll round out our Christmas by watching the new Muppet Christmas movie (one of Dad’s stocking gifts!). It’s been a really swell Christmas.
