It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas!

Now that Thanksgiving has passed, it's officially the BEST season of the whole year. It's CHRISTMAS!! After we got back from my grandparents', Momma and I spent the rest of the weekend decorating our place for Christmas. I had a tough job snoopervising to make sure Momma did everything right.

Start fluffing out those branches, Momma!

Eventually, things started to take shape. We hung the stockings by the chimney with care.

From left to right, it's Momma's, mine, Cinderella's, Scribbles's and Pigeon's!

And we got the tree up! Momma even has most of the gifts under it already. She still has a few left to get, and she won't put any dog presents under the tree. I wonder why? BOL!

 
Then Momma wanted Cinderella and me to pose for our traditional picture under the tree. Well, that didn't go so well at first. Cinderella was grumpy because her brand-new Mrs. Claus outfit is, um, a little tight. They apparently don't make girly stuff for the linebacker-sized boxer gal!


But things went better when Momma let us change. Here we are, complete with kitty photobomb!


Finally, of course we had to start preparing our Christmas cards! We all posed for a grreat picture at Grandma's house, and Momma got the cards ordered and picked up yesterday. Now we just have to spend a few days addressing them and stuff. We're going to wait until next week to send them, since Thanksgiving was so early this year!


I'm all ready for that visit from Santa Paws... I can't believe I have to wait a whole MONTH!

Why do you think peeps won't put doggie presents under the tree till the last minute? We just don't understand that mentality.

Your house looks very festive.

Awww Casey! Its the most wonderful time of the year, it is begining to look a lot like Christmas at your home, it all looks so festive and wonderful!
You and Cinderella look amazing in your outfits, I love it and the kitty photo bomb is great! Way to go! Is the kitty Scribbles or Pigeon??
I love your stockings, You said on my blog "Why is your stocking hanging all alone on a lightswitch? Shouldn't it be by the chimney with your mom and dad's" Well we dont have a chimney at our home so Mum hangs the stockings all over the place till the night before christmas, on Christmas eve we all take our stockings and hang them on the foot of our bed (we all sleep in one bed) and Santa Paws has a special magic key to get in the house (like I said we dont have a chimney!) and he fills the stockings there! Its a very magical time! Love all your photos, so special! Have a good one!
Love from your furiend Frank xxxxxxxxx
