Merry Christmas and a ho, ho, ho to you and yours! Nicholas and I are sooo ready for Santa Paws tonight! The little guy is wound up like a top and can hardly contain himself, running around sticking not just his nose but his entire head in every bag he finds!!! I’m trying to stay more laid back and cool about it all but I’ve got the Christmas spirit make no mistake about it. I was out early this morning rolling in the snow (one of my very favourite things to do) and throwing a ball in the air and catching it. Nicholas hid his ball in the snow thinking he was hiding it on me but I saw where it went out of the corner of my eye, ha, ha, ha! I’ll wonder out alone a bit later and check that out! Hee, hee, hee. Mama says I’d better be a good boy, especially today of all days. We had family members arrive from Ottawa last Sunday to stay with us for the holidays and we have more family arriving tonight. Tonight we have our annual seafood feast and then tomorrow we’ll wake up to the delicious aroma of roasting turkey which mama puts in the oven before we go to bed tonight! Everyone in our family are all good cooks and each one will have their speciality to prepare! Nicholas and I just sit back and wait for some leftovers with baited breath and paws crossed! We’ll be home alone tonight for just a bit while our family go to church. Mama reminds us that the true meaning of Christmas is the birth of the Christ Child and that’s what we are actually celebrating at Christmas time. While they are gone Nicholas and I will lay back quietly on the sofa just admiring the twinkling lights on our little tree in the family room but when our family burst through the back door we’ll be ready to celebrate in a big way.
Nicholas and I take this opportunity to wish you all a very Merry Christmas filled with love surrounded by family. We wish you good health, happiness and lots of turkey and doggy treats!
