Christmas at our house

Hi, all! We hope you are having a wonderful Christmas day! I thought you all might like to see a few pictures of what has been going on at our house.

Hi, there!

Of course we started the festivities last night. Aaron brought me these beautiful flowers. They look and smell really beautiful!

We then took Sam to look at Christmas lights. He really does look at them, and when we pass too many houses without lights, he starts whining. He seems to love the big inflatable Santa's and houses with music. If we slow down, he studies the houses. We can almost here him thinking "Why, yes, that is a clever use of blue lights!"

This morning, the furry kids couldn't wait for me to wake Aaron up. They begged and begged for me to go get him.

Please can you wake up Dad?

Pretty please?

In the end, Sam solved the problem by pretending he heard something outside and barking like mad! Aaron couldn't sleep through that!

We soon began with the present opening. I had a few pictures of Cisco opening gifts, but for some reason they all came out fuzzy and very yellow... However, here is Sam enjoying his gifts.

As you can see, they left quite a paper trail. The blue bear belongs to Cisco.

We had gotten each of them a deer antler for Christmas, as well as stuffies for Cisco and this great hat for Sam!

All the excitement wore out Cisco.

All in all, we think Sam had a wonderful day!

Even if he did have to wear the antlers!


  1. Wow, what great pictures! It seems that everyone had a fantastic day. I hope everyone got to eat lots of good things too! :)

  2. Looks like you had a doggone good day!
    Merry Christmas.

    Frisky only wanted one thing this year: to find her lost mind. She didn't get it. :(
