Pay it forward gifts!

Hi! I just received this package (that sister was hoarding at her house)! Its the pay it forward gift i got from Maggie & Mitch !!!!

Thanks guys! its great!

Stupid sister keeping it for herself for 1/2 a week!

In case you can't read the picture clearly, it says,
"This Christmas ornament was handmade by our gram,
love ya lots,
maggie & mitch"

WOW! my gram can't make ANYTHING! not even toast! Well, she can, but as she's getting older, she can do less and less.

She does feed ME pretty well- so thats all i care about!

Here's a close up of the ornament!

We just LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOVE penguins in this family! they are so cute! Maggie and mitch, how did you know?!

Sister tried to get my attention- but it was hard, there was something else i was watching....

Another close up of the ornament! Sister... seriously... i can't take my nose off of something else...

Thats it...

Lickin my chops.... ohhh i can smell yoooooou...
I can't have it tonight though, i have to wait until morning. I have a very sensitive stomach, so to eat this and not get sick, mom usually tries new things early in the morning and just a little bit. We'll see how it works out!

Our new ornament gets a special spot on our collection tree. Near the bottom so i can see him!

All our nutcrackers are out now! You haven't seen them. Mom collects nutcrackers. We have one new one EVERY year! the egg man in this picture is my boys.

And here is a santa who joined in the fun!

A full view of our nut crackers.

Then we have a wall where i will be hanging all of my christmas cards. Look! Mom kept Hana's card from last year! :) Its on the wall!

And we added Mini's card to the wall! I'm so excited to have my own wall!

Hi Isis, sadly, the vet does use a baby needle on me. It's just that 2.8 pounds worth of dog really desnt leave for much fat or muscle to put the needle into. mommy gives me 1ml of baby benadryl and it takes care of my itchies.

in one month i am going to go get spayed and mommy wants me to get microchiped while i am asleep. what does your sis think about this idea?

your christmas tree is beautiful and the hand made decoration is really cute!

Tail wiggles & Puppy Kisses,

What a great ornament. Your blog is looking real festive. I love it! It is like a Christmas card.

Hana said...

Wow, look at all those nutcrackers!!! You sure know how to decorate! You still have my card from last year up? But, you can't see it... it's too high up. Tell your Mom she needs to lower it on the wall so you can see it all the time. :-)

Hana said...

p.s. I got so excited seeing my card from last year up on your wall that I forgot to tell you your card arrived today! Whoo hoo! Thank you for the card... you look so peaceful sleeping by the fireplace in your cozy bed. A perfect photo. Hopefully you will get my card soon in the mail.

What cool Pay it Forward gifts! And your entire house looks so Christmas-y special. Your mom has beautiful collections. I bet you hate it when Christmas is over and all those wonderful things get packed away! Maybe your family should keep it Christmas all year aound!

In response to your question on my blog: Milo is 4-1/2 feet long and moved with mom and dad from Chicago ten years ago. They rescued her when she was a baby and had a broken leg. The pet store was going to feed her to the snakes. Unfortunately her leag could not be saved, but she is ok with only having three. Milo gets a bath four times a week; she likes to swim for exercise and needs the hydration, and when she's done she potties in the water. Sometimes when it is not bath day but she wants one, Milo walks herself to the tub and climbs in!
