Is the Woman Nuts?

You simply will not believe this! Mom has put our Airedale Christmas tree up!
She had it up before Halloween!!! Mom has never done anything like this before!

Did you all happen to visit Dory's blog and see that her mom has started her DWB Christmas cards?
She has her handmade cards EVERYWHERE in her house! Mom always says, the early bird gets the worm!

Well, my mom has been thinking about the Christmas card exchange too! This is our first year exchanging with all of the dogs and not just with the Airedales. We joined DWB last year at the very end of November and the card exchange was pretty much in full swing and seeing as we didn't know anyone yet, we just didn't get involved! So now my mom is just as nutty as Dory's mom, no offense Dory!
She just needs to get the best photo for our Christmas card!

We practice every single day on this project to the point where Mitch and I are ready to strangle mom! She's just never happy! We always have to take "just one more, please!" Can you see us trying to tell mom to just be happy with that last one! Dad says this picture looks like we're singing Christmas carols! shhhhhhhhhhhhh Please don't tell mom! Or she'll have us doing that next!

Okay, is there anybody else who has their Christmas tree up yet or are we the only fools??!!

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

Love ya lots,

What? You get trees IN the house? Great idea! Does this mean we no longer have to venture outside when the temps drop?

Boy, I know what I want for Christmas now... :)

Sophie Brador said...

Maggie, It does look like your singing, but I promise to not say a word to your mom. As long as you promise not to tell your mom that I think she's nuts too. Christmas trees before howloween?!!! Yikes! Unless, of course, that means more pressies.


Puggle Preston said...

oh Maggie! your mom's xmas tree got my mommy so excited. She can't wait to start the holiday decoration. I think we will have our tree up early this year too! Love the picture of you and mitch sitting in front of the tree!


Luckie Girl said...

Hey maggie,
I like the last pikture too! Both of you seem to be howling in unison. hehe...
We don't have a christmas tree. I guess our family doesn't really celebrate christmas in a big way. I like presents though. LOL!!

T-man Angel said...

We love our Christmas tree so much, I can understand why your mom would want to enjoy it as long as possible. We're going to wait till after Thanksgiving though. We're working on our cards too. December's coming up fast!!

Noah the Airedale said...

Hi Maggie,
Our pinkies put the tree up at the beginning of December. We think we'll be doing the dreaded xmas card photo when we get back from our holiday. Blimey, what an ordeal that is and now with Tess it's going to be bigger than Ben Hur... This year Pinkie B wants us to be the baby Jesus and the 3 wise dales...Dog help us!
Your piccies look nice. At least your mom hasn't smothered you both in a santa suit.

Hugs and tail wags
Noah, Willow, Tess and Lucy

Ferndoggle said...

Well, we don't have a tree up yet, but our crazy Mom is always making us practice our poses.

At least there is usually food involved.

Lorenza said...

Hi, Maggie and Mitch
Sure your mom wants to get the best picture of you two. The last one is great!
My mom has been thinking about my cards too!
Have a good night

Linda said...

Hey Maggie & Mitch,
Your Mama isn't nuts. Lots of people that live around here in the surrounding towns have their trees up BEFORE Thanksgiving & some even at Halloween. Mama usually tries to put the tree up the weekend before Thanksgiving and then decorates it the weekend of Thanksgiving. She does it early cause it is so big & tall. Takes her forever to decorate it. She figures it might as well be up long enough to enjoy since she goes to all of that work to get it decorated. Most of the stores had Christmas things up way before Halloween. So don't tease your Mama ok?? hehehehehe!
Luv & Wirey Hugs!
Butchy & Snickers

Gus said...

I can see the tiny little wheels turning in muzzer's head. An excuse to put up the tree before mid december. But...Don't forget, we have Thanksgiving, St. Nicholas day, St. Lucia day and Strega Nonna has to come before it can be really christmas. Fortunately, three kings come afterward, and we don't do much about King Whats his name her. But muzzer does love to celebrate, and it means the pressies start here on Dec. 6! Really early in the morning. yiupee

Joe Stains said...

This is bad news because all Mom needs is to know there is one other person in the whole country who has a tree up and she will start decorating!

Hana said...

Hm, no new recipe and food pictures this past weekend?

Thanks for taking me on a tour of your city. Your city looks cozy to me, without all the hub bub. It looks nice and quiet to me. Maybe I should move to a place like your town.

I also like your burning bush! What a pretty color.

My mom hasn't started on our holiday cards yet and that is making her stressed right now. We are participating in an eskie card exchange this year. It was a LOT of fun last year. I'm sure the DWB card exchange will be a lot of fun too.

Scruffy said...

My Mummy got real excited when she saw your tree. Looks like ours will be coming out very soon.

PS : You and Mitch do look like you are singing. So sweet.

Helios said...

I've never seen a christmas tree yet, it's gonna be my first christmas! I think my M is lazy, she has not started on the cards.

Stanley said...

Maggsie & MitchMan!

You know, I've always thought your mama was a little crazy anyway (but in a GOOD way). Did she make your Airedale Christmas tree? That's so cool. I see that you admire it as much as we all do.

That last photo is the BEST! I love to sing, but never look or sound as good as you guys! I can just imagine you singing at the top of your lungs!

Thanks for sharing!

Goober love,

Huskee and Hershey said...

Your are certainly no 'fools'.. I think that's a real smart thing to do because by having the tree up earlier, you will have more time to look at how pretty it is (and hopefully start receiving pressies earlier??)

Boo Casanova said...

maggie, the last photo says it all! you two are just AMAZED by mom's early worm disease! hehehehe.

wet wet licks


Simba and Jazzi said...

Maybe its a bit early for the Christmas tree. Humans are strange someones.

Great tree guys - we don't have a tree at all at our place but I have already been subjected to the humiliation of dressing up for the Christmas card photos....


Ruby Bleu said...

OK, she is a little nuts and I won't show this post to my Mom because it will just stress her out!!! Has you Mom finished her shopping too?

The tree is pawsome...I have to say that much!

Lots of Licks, Ruby

Wow, your mom is very early! My mom is always very late with that christmas-stuff. Well. actally she's always late with everything. I bet one day we will have a belated christmas because she forgot all about it. ;0)))

Bye, Alex

umekotyan said...

It is Christmas
It is a preparation for the Christmas card.
There are manners of the New Year's card, and it sends a letter to in
Japan at the New Year.
It is necessary to prepare it for this.
Time is insufficient.

Kien said...

wow.. maggie.. that christmas tree is fantastic.. well done to mom!..


Jessica said...

This post made us LOL. We can just see your Mom trying to get the perfect photo for your cards. She sounds like our Mom. We haven't seen any trees up at our house yet but we bet it won't be long.

We are very excited about the Xmas card exchange, we need to get busy!!

Love, Seadra and Zoe

Urban Smoothie Read said...

Russell said...

Ahhh, Christmas time is approaching... the smell of evergreens, cookies baking in the oven, and the humans farts from the humans over eating


the many Bs said...

Hi M&M, you two are incredibly cute! we love love love that christmas photo with you two. it's awesomely cute! and yes, your mom is the craziest to put up her airedale tree so early. it's just amazing that you guys even have your own tree. well, our mom has been thinking about the christmas card exchange. does that count?

Clover said...

Your tree is great, and my mom doesn't think your mom is nuts! If she could swing it, our tree would be up too!!
We get a real tree though, so we have to wait a little while longer, so it doesn't die before Christmas!!
It's a great idea to get ahead of the game with Christmas cards and everything - so goooo Maggie and Mitch's mom!
Love Clover xo

Murphey said...

Oh, we've been so busy and we are so behind! But I finally got caught up....and no tree for us yet, in fact the lady said maybe no tree at all! Something about Reilly and destruction and blah blah blah. We shall see!


Headgirl said...

Will have one of my own, up first week of Dec, all through to 12TH Night...

Amber-Mae said...

Wow, so fast! She must be more excited about the Christmas Card Exchange then you fellas...My hoomans have not put up the Christmas tree or deco yet but I've a feeling, I'll be decorated as a X'mas tree for the card. Gee!

Love licks,

Marvin -The Hollow Hound said...

No, Maggie, we dont have our Christmas Tree up yet, the rule in our house is the week before my Pa's barkday, and he will be about probably not celebrating much this year!

His barkday is 20 December.....

Jeannie says once November 5th (Guy Fawkes Day in UK!) has gone, it is all down hill to Christmas.

You two look cool in the pictures so please dont strangle your Mama!

She is doin her best!

love and licks, and Christmas wishes......

Marvin xxxxxxx

Harry said...

That's a sweet photo of you both! I'm not sure we'll have a tree this year. I think a certain little lady may eat it!

Maggie and Mitch... No christmas tree up... HOWEVER, mom is one gift away from completing her christmas shopping. She has already done our DWB Christmas cards and printed out about 75 of them so far. Just waiting on the final count to see how many more need to be printed. So, your mom is not the only weirdo out here... my mom is in the same group! LOVE the airedale tree and photo, however ;)

Johann The Dog said...

Just don't lift your leg on that tree, K? Mitch? BOL!!!! I like that pic - love the open mouth look - very sexy! BMTO! Woofs, Johann (Guess I'm giddy tonight)

B said...

Thanks for visiting! I'm very excited about my birthday. We actually started birthdaying on monday because that's mom's day off and shes going to let me have a whole week of birthdaying for my first one (and for my stomach - we don't want to overload it).

Although we don't have our tree up yet my mom has been working on two christmas shows for almost a month!

Toby said...

Wow a christmas tree already! Your mom is really on top of things! I wasn't sure about doing the christmas card exhange thing or not. My Daddy says i'll get more cards them him and mommy will get..hehehe!

Love Toby

Bogart H. Devil said...

Wow, is it almost Christmastime already??? You two look awfully cute next to your tree...


Girl Girl Hamster said...

Myeo said...

Hey Maggie & Mitch

It is better to prepare early. We always get last minute Xmas gifts but this year, mama has started to get some gifts already. We really cant wait for Xmas.

We don't do any decorating until the day after Thanksgiving here. maybe this means you'll get more presents, though!
That last picture of the two of you is GREAT!

The WriggleButts said...

Um.. You're rather crazy. No offence.. BOL.. We like crazy, btw. Here in Norway we usually don't decorate for Christmas until the 23rd..

Your picture looks great!

Little Miss Jada Kiss said...

OH MY DOG!!! That tree is adorable! **jumping with joy** I wish my mommy would put up the Christmas decorations already and to have my very own min pin tree would be PAWsome! Did your mommy make all those decorations? It's hard to find min pin things, I bet it was hard to find Airedale things too unless she made them!
