A Pressie from Aunt Lydia

We got a suprise package in the mail from Aunt Lydia, who is also known as the Airedale cookie lady!  Aunt Lydia is owned by Airedale Dave and his sweet sissy was Alice, who crossed the Rainbow Bridge just recently.  She was a VERY special and beautiful girl.

That's Dave drooling all over the cookies and Alice is to his left. 
Aunt Lydia sent mom and dad a chocolate bottle of champagne to celebrate their anniversary. Wasn't that super sweet!
 OMG, this box is LOADED, Maggie!  I think we hit the jackpot!

 Mom's favorite color combination - purple and orange!  Can we open it?

 How does the orange bow look on me, Mitch?

You're going to share these yummies with us, mom, right?

 Dave sent toys for both of us.
Mom gave me mine first and she repeatedly told Mitch that, "This one is for Maggie!"
You can see how determined he is to swipe it and run with it!
 Dave sent Mitch a crocodile!     You couldn't have made a more perfect choice, Dave!  hehehe
 OMG, the FAMOUS cookies that only Aunt Lydia makes!

 These are cheesey pizza cookies!  Are you serious?  Hurry up and open them up, mom!

 And these are bacon and potato bones!

 Bless you, mom!  We thought we were going to keel over from the wonderful smells coming out of these baggies~~
Thank you so much Lydia, Dave and angel Alice!  How very thoughtful!
You sure did make our day!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

Mom likes purple and orange too - especially when the purple is from me in the orange of The Xterra!!!

Happy Saturday!


Princess Patches said...

Wow! That's a lot of tasty looking stuffs! Our mom's favorite colors are kind of wierd! She likes turquoise and purple together! Fortunately, she hasn't decorated our house in those colors! She used her second favorite...teal green and burgundy!

Have a great Saturday!

Let's not talk about favorite colors. If the muzzer had her way, we would live in a world of black and white. OK, maybe a touch of purple.

That was a great box. We are sure the cookies are great, but we love Maggie's bow.
