Our Mom is Home

Mom came back from Florida yesterday and we got to go with dad to pick her up at the AirePort☺   Mom said that she saw a bomb sniffing dog for the very first time ever and he gave her a nose poke and she couldn't help but smile.  She said he looked just like our friend, Shyla!

Mom couldn't blog at gram's in FL, because she couldn't get her camera to download pics.  She thinks it might have had something to do with camera drivers, whatever those are.

Now you know our mom couldn't go to Florida and not post a couple of pictures of beautiful flowers!   This is gram's hibiscus in her front yard.  
 And this is the stunning bougainvillea~
 Mom and gram went shopping one day and gram couldn't pass up this pretty pink poinsettia. 
 Her Christmas decorations are always so beautiful!  Gram does beautiful needlework!
 She made all of the ornies on this patriotic tree and she painted the goosie that's hanging on the wall.   Her name is Matilda☺
 This tree is in the bedroom. 
 More of her handmade ornies~
 Gram decorated her dining room in pink this year for Christmas.
 Mom loved the garlanded lights. 
 Our favorite cute reindeer☺
 This tree is in her entry hall. 
 And this one is in her computer room~
 This wreath is peacock feathers.   Isn't it so pretty!
 This beautiful swan was on her cocktail table. 
 Mom didn't come home bearing gifties.  She said that some had come in the mail for us while she was gone.  
I got a new feather tag for my harness!
 I love my new tag and I love my harness!
 Molly wasn't so lucky.  She got a toenail grinder.  haha
Think of it this way, Molly.   You'll be getting lots and lots of treats if you're a very good girl!
We are so happy to have our mom home!
We are way behind on reading blogs so please bear with us.

Love ya lots♥
Mitch and Molly

Those flowers and all that decoration sure are pretty! You're grandma sure know what she's doing when it comes to dressing up a house!

Helen said...

A toe nail grinder isn't that like getting pajamas from your Granny that are too small?

Reilly-Denny Cowspotdogs said...

One time, I saw the sniffing dogs in customs for an international flight. I realized that I had an apple in my bag, and it wasn't allowed. I went over to talk to the dog handler about how to get rid of my apple, and he asked me to do a "set-up" for his dog to discover the apple. It was lots of fun!!!! But that sniffing dog didn't look like Shyla :)

The flowers make me yearn for warmer days. Your mom sure had a gloriously beautiful time visiting her parents. I love your gifts, except the nail grinder ;)

That is the Christmas spirit! Love the beautiful flowers

Mom is absolutely in love with that pink poinsettia - she has never seen a pretty pink one like that. We remember how beautifully decorated your Gram's house is for the holidays - so many beautiful treasures she has!!! That peacock wreath is beautiful.

Welcome home, Mom - please do not worry about the blogs - enjoy your return home.

Sully said...

Gram sure knows how to decorate for Christmas. Beautiful.

Aroo to you,

Sammy Sam said...

thank goodness, your mom is home. So when do we eat?

Bella Roxy & Macdui said...

WOW! We don't even have our pathetic fibre optic tree up! We think there's something very wrong about getting a nail grinder as a present....maybe it's just us. But the treat advice is good.

Baby Rocket Dog and Hootie said...

So glad your mom is back home with you now. We kind of think a toenail grinder isn't a very good surprise though. Hoping that your dad treated you to pizza every night while she was gone!! Now about that grandma of yours: She is REALLY talented and now we know where your mom gets all her artistic bent from. Did grandma have a tree in every room of her home?! How cool is that??!!
Smooches from pooches,

YAY! Mom's home!!! That's great! Those photos of the flowers were so beautiful and made our mom smile!
We love your new tag and harness! Oh. And a nail grinder. Well, yes. You DO get lots of treats during a pedicure, right? Concentrate on that!
We hung our precious mitten ornaments on our special tree! We think of you two, your mom, and your angel sister Maggie when we look at them! (Oh. And they're where Mags can't reach them - don't worry!)
