(not really) Wordless Wednesday: Holiday edition




I finally got all the decorations up!  The house feels so nice & cozy, just in time for some forecasted snowfall this weekend.  It's really beginning to look a lot like Chistmas!  We have several trees, but here's what you see if you look on our "fun" tree.  Lots of ornaments from our childhoods, as well as some neat ones we've found more recently.


Mason has an ornament


And of course Brutus has several...


This is my favorite, a new one from some friends with good taste :)


Here's Duncan, my JR terrier that crossed the Rainbow Bridge earlier this year.  Hanging his ornament was bittersweet.

And my friends even found me a girl Frenchie (hopefully I'll have the dog to represent her some day).

There you have it.  We're off to a (huge) show for the next few days, will try to post if we can.  Keep your fingers crossed that the "good" Brutus is the one who comes with me!!

Snow? Mom wants to know if planes can still land in the snow. Guess she better bring her mittens and beanie cap when she comes to pick up Roxy this weekend.. Brrr.

Every year I wonder if we'll decorate. We share our home with several kitties, you see, and they're not as well behaved as my kind. Mom did buy the special ornaments that don't break, but the cats kept making her pick up. Well, if we don't get Christmas decorations in my home this year, I'll keep visiting your joyful blog.

It was a pleasure to hear from you, Brutus. Don't stress about anything. We all get busy every now and then. I'm simply glad to hear you're well. Just give us a shout whenever you're up to it.

JD and Max said...

Hiya Brutus - oh WOW, your very own ornaments on the tree? We rushed our humans over to see this and hope they take serious note as we feel our tree is now lacking some schnauzer cheer, he he he! Wonderful tree - we think we're gonna like Christmas, we were a bit too young last year to know what was going on, he he! Schnauzer snuggles - JD and Max.
