As the saying goes, life goes on. We’ve had a couple of unsettling months here, but despite all that we figured our furkids still deserved a Christmas celebration. We decided to have a very quiet, low-key Christmas with just us and the furry ones.
This was actually Maggie’s first Christmas with us, so we had to make sure she enjoyed herself. I’m not sure she completely understood everything that was going on though.
But of course the other guys know all too well what Santa brings:
Yes, they all gathered ‘round to see what the big guy brought them this year:
Of course there’s always someone wanting to jump the queue. This year Charlie was a bit over-eager and had to be reminded to wait his turn.
Denny always waits so patiently for his turn…
We know that Phebes is always a bit hard on her presents, but this year she was particularly brutal to her new toy. That thing had the squeaker and half it’s stuffing ripped out within 1 minute of being opened!
And then she moved onto Maggie’s present…
But Maggie got to wear a pretty sash, so she wasn’t too bothered. Doesn’t she look pretty??
Of course everybody’s favorite presents were the biscuits! After everyone had a taste we had to put them away for fear that somebody would over-do it. Denny and Charlie were devastated.
So there you have it, our Christmas with our puggies. This year especially, we are grateful for having them here with us, healthy and happy.
Oh yeah, I nearly forgot. I tried my hand this year at making a chocolate pecan pie (sugar free, of course) It turned out nicely. So good, in fact, that we’re making another one for New Year’s Day. Here’s the Christmas one pre-baking:
I’m no Martha Stewart, but Richard doesn’t seem to be complaining!
Happy New Year everyone!!!! I just KNOW that 2009 is going to be better.
