Christmas Rocks

It's hard to believe that Christmas came and went already!
We started celebrating on Christmas Eve with lasagna to eat. Lasanga for the humans and dog food for the rest of us. When Motch made the salad, I got a few bites of cucumber that fell to the floor, and I really liked it.
The meal ended with lots of cookies and candy, and I probably don't have to tell you that we didn't get any of that, either.
I was pretty happy in this picture, but Leah wasn't. She said my cucumber gas got stuck to her jeans and the smell made her sick. She actually changed clothes and threw her jeans in the wash machine. Bah hum bug to her!
It was a pretty tiring day for Tadpole.
And forFiggy.
And for me.
But then Christmas morning came and we were revived and tore into our presents!
Fig and I played tug of war and proceeded to completely ruin our new toys.
Expending so much energy wore us out.
Lots of family pictures were taken, but I won't bore you with them. I must show you this one, though; isn't just marvelous?
Food is good, presents are fun, family is entertaining, but one of the best things about Christmas is cuddly naps!

What an awesome Christmas you had, Petra! What a bummer that you didn't get any of those cookies! They sure look yummy but you did get cucumber and those are good too! Sorry about the gas!

Love ya lots,

Wow, Petra. That table looks crazy delish! I don't think I could have controlled myself. But I'm sure you have much better manners than I do.
Kudos on the cucumber farts!

Wow, it looks like you had a great Christmas! It's too bad you ruined your toys, but sometimes it's fun to ruin something. And those last two pictures of you are awesome!!!

You look pretty tired out in most of those pictures. That's too bad about the gas. You should tell her that's not such a bad thing. It could have been poop.


Emily and Ike said...

Too bad you were deprived of good food. Toys almost make up for it though.

leah said...

that was not cucumber gas... that was anal gland secretion, petra! YUCK!

Petra Girl!!

Congratulations on gassing your sister right out of her jeans! That is some accomplishment!

Who is taking that photo of you, Figgles & Tad and what are they promising you in return? You look model perfect in that photo. I LOVE it!

My fave photo by far is the one of you & Tad cuddling under your silver blankie! You look like you're still basically asleep or you're high on Christmas.

Goober love,

veggie farts are the best, if you really want to get the humans, eat some broccoli!! Looks like you had a great Christmas!

Noah the Airedale said...

Wow we thought Tess had potent gas attacks but our pinkies have never had to change their clothes...that's hilarious.

Looks like you all had a wonderful Christmas. Thanks for sharing the holiday snaps with us.

Mom says she understands Leah's pain. I'm not allowed to have cucumbers anymore either. Mom says DO NOT eat broccoli!! My broccoli gas can clear an entire house!!!
My Mom loves having lasagna for Christmas Eve but we missed out on it this year because our stupid oven decided it didn't want to wait until after Christmas to stop working. Mom says she'll get her lasagna next Christmas Eve though even if she has to take it to work to cook it (or come to your house)!
