oh ho!

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas! The tree is up, the stockings are hung, the lights outside are strung over the bushes, shopping has started, presents are beginning to appear under the tree, cards are waiting to be addressed, and Christmas music is blaring away.

And Motch started baking. Yummmmmm! I stood faithfully by her side as she worked in the kitchen and was careful to avoid being stepped on. Hour after hour, I stood at attention and found my reward in a few pretzels and some chex mix that fell to the floor.

The hustle and bustle of the Christmas season is beginning to wear me out!

Chex mix is my most favorite thing in the whole world, Mom loves it too. She should probably make some REALLY soon.

Petra Girl!

Stella wanted me to tell you to "Pace yourself, girl!"

A smallfry like yourself needs to be sure to get plenty of naps between the snacking & guard duties you have in the kitchen with Motch.

Even if you are worn out, you still look stinkin' cute in that last photo. Are you winking at Motch?

Goober love & smooches,
Stanley
