My Eighth Christmas

Yesterday my hooman sister and her fiance were here. They celebrated Christmas Eve with me. I just love my sister. When I know she's coming, I wait in the hallway till I hear her car drive in. Jim, her fiance is a cool guy. I really, really like him. He always plays with me when he comes.

They arrived early in the afternoon carrying HUGE bags filled with pressies and as luck would have it, many were for me! After our feast it was time to head to the family room and open the packages - the BEST part! My sister ALWAYS plays Santa and passes out the gifts. She helped me open this first gift and mom was telling her that this cookie was wayyyy too big for me at this near-bedtime hour! What! I waited a long time for this day to come! Pass over that cookie! Awwwwwwww come on mom! Christmas comes only once a year!

Mom held her ground and told me that I could have the other half tomorrow. Oh alright! My next gift was this very cool monkey with the longest stretch arms! He's very soft and he squeaks!

I have a good time helping everyone open their gifts too. I secretly hope they're all for me - hehehe. Dad helped me open the next one. It's this really cool melon ball with paw prints all over it. It's just the right size to fit in my mouth and play keep away from everybody! Actually I'm pretty stingy with all my new toys. Mom keeps telling me to share but nope, they're MINE, all MINE!!!

I kept hoping that I'd get another purple baby gorilla (he was one of the gifts on my list) but my sister said she couldn't find one exactly like baby but she did give me this purple elephant that's even BIGGER than baby is! Thanks Sis! I really, really like him! He has these very neat white tusks that look quite edible! I may have to see if they come off next time mom isn't looking!

I had a very special Christmas Eve with my sister, Jim and mom and dad. Mom says it's time to hit the hay so that Santa can come - time for all little furgirls to be in bed. I'm still prayin' for a green ring toy like the one Miss Sunshade has. I sure hope Santa thought I was good enough to get one! Good night!
The next morning mom and I are up at 5am! We're always up at 5am! Dad got up at 6, we ate breakfast and went for our 2 mile walk. When we got back mom said we could look under the tree and see what Santa brought. Hey, guess what! I got another stuffy! This one is a bear baby and squeaks. He's really cute. Mom says she wants to keep this one for herself. Yea, right! No way mom! He belongs to me!

The next pressie was sorta hidden deep underneath the tree. Dad helped me drag it out and I couldn't wait to rip into it. OMG I got the #1 gift on my list! I'm so excited. Me and Sunshade are now twins! weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee! Thank you so much Santa. I tried so hard to be a good girl so you'd come and you didn't let me down. Thank you!

The last gift was from mom. It was a bone to keep me occupied for awhile mom says. It took me 1/2 hour to chow it down! So much for the long while!

This was an awesome Christmas. I got so many nice gifts. Thank you mom and dad and sis and Jim and Santa. You guys are all so generous. I feel like the luckiest girl in the world!

Love you lots,
