A Seasonal Meme

We got tagged by our friend, PoopsieBlue to play this Christmas tag! We're thinking that this tag is geared more towards the hoomans so today it's your turn to blog, mom!
Welcome to the Christmas edition of getting to know your friends! Okay, here's what you're supposed to do, & try not to be a SCROOGE!!! Just copy and paste into a new form.Change all the answers so that they apply only to you. Then post it!
And, do remember to tell, all you tag, that they are playing too!
Here goes...'Tis the Season to be NICE!

1. Wrapping paper or gift bags? Both!
2. Real tree or Artificial? Artificial! Ours goes up too early for a live tree!
3. When do you put up the tree? We try to wait until after Halloween but sometimes we jump the gun, oops! What can we say - we love the tree and the lights!
4. Wreath on your door? Of course! The front door is a red fruit wreath and the back door will be evergreens with a red bow!
5. Do you like eggnog? Absolutely, but no alcohol, please!
6. Favourite Christmas gift received as a child? Toys!!! - anything but clothing! That was the worst!
7. Easiest person to buy for? I loved PoopsieBlue's answer - Me! LOL
8. Least easiest? Niece Hallie who is 12 years old and has EVERYTHING!
9. Do you have a nativity scene? No.
10. Mail or email Christmas cards? We'll do both this year seeing as there are over 140 doggie friends to send to!
11. Worst Christmas gift you ever received? This is tough seeing as I like just about anything!
12. Favourite Christmas Movie? A Christmas Story with Ralphie and Randy! 13. When do you start shopping for Christmas? Usually November!
14. Have you ever recycled a Christmas present? Sure, why not! I hate to waste and it's good stuff!

18. Travel at Christmas or stay home? Stay home!
19. Can you name all of Santa's reindeer's? Sure - No problem!
20. Angel on the tree top or a star? No tree topper but Airedale ornaments are very close to the top!
21. Favourite thing to eat at Christmas? Christmas cookies, especially Russian Tea Cakes!
22. Most annoying thing about this time of the year? People are always in a rush! Slow down and enjoy the holidays!
23. Favourite Tree ornament, theme or colour? I just love each and every one of my Airedale ornaments.
24. Favourite for Christmas dinner? Seasoned roast pork with potatoes, carrots and onions, broccoli casserole, sweet potatoes with marshmallows and for dessert, Christmas cookies and a slice of fruitcake!
25. Brussels Sprouts - love or hate them? They're not my favorite but they're okay.
26. Favourite accompaniment to the Christmas Pud? Hard sauce and LOTS of it!
27. Favourite Christmas Carol? Joy to the World!
28. Your very Favourite Christmas Thing? I love the white lights on the Christmas tree!
29. A Christmas wish! Happiness and health and safety for all of those we love!
30. Tag a Seasonal Six! We don't want to put any doggie or hooman on the spot because this is such a busy time of year, so it you want to play, consider yourself tagged! It's lots of fun and really puts you in a great holiday mood!

We have to tell you about a new friend we met! Her name is Alanis and she is an Airedale! Alanis is a retired show girl and has just been adopted by her new mom, Sherry! She has just arrived at her forever home and she could use a lot of support from all of us, so please stop by her blog and say hi!
Mitch also wants to share with you three more birthday cards that he received for his very special day. The first one is from Happy, the Silky Terrier! Isn't it so colorful and pretty?!
The next one is from Faya and Dyos! We just love those smiles! Dyos looks like he's thinking up some devilish plan to play on Faya!

And Mitch even got a super duper card from Asta! She's been so busy with her own mom's pawty and she stopped what she was doing to send Mitch a card! You're the sweetest, Asta!Okay, Maggie, I can speak for myself now! Thank you Happy and Faya and Dyos and Asta for my beautiful birthday cards! I love them all! My 2nd birthday was the best ever!

So until next time....................

Love ya lots,

Maggie and Mitch

Maggsie & Mitch,

We always love to hear from your sweet mama. We wish we could spend Christmas with her, your dad, and you guys! I bet we'd get some snow wrasslin' in for SURE!

We went by to see Alanis. I'm glad she gets to live a normal dog life now. She looks like a happy girl.

See Mitch? Didn't I tell you your birthday celebration would last at least a week? Hope you guys got plenty of turkey today.

We love you TOO!

Goober love & turkey breath smooches,

We are so glad that you had a great birthday..
You mom is so on top of the Holiday Season. We usually have a tree but mom isn't sure this year with the little one. She will probably chew up all the ornaments.. She is such a pest..
