Merry Christmas!

It's the night before Christmas Eve and the year is almost over. My hope is that each of us may feel the real spirit of Christmas and keep it in our hearts.
Have a joyous Christmas!

Christmas Letter

Dear Family and Friends,

In the spirit of the holidays once again I am taking the opportunity of not writing a Christmas letter. Instead Ralphie aka the little dog and her big sister Precious aka the cat will be doing the honors. I am hoping between them the spelling and punctuation will be correct.

I still have mixed feelings on Christmas letters some are amusing, others are bragging, then there are those that get you all caught up on the comings and goings of a family.

In this day of high tech it is amazing how hard it is for us to keep in touch with each other. I miss getting letters in the mail, maybe I should miss writing them and do better in that area.

Well back to the matter at hand. These two little girls have been waiting to get their paws on the computer. I hope they remember "No ordering toys", besides the fact their daddy hid the credit card from them.


Dear family and friends,

How are you? We are fine. Merry Christmas.

Mommy said if me and Precious played nice that we would get a present. If you say "me and Precious" really fast it sounds like "mean Precious". Sometimes Precious is mean, when she hides behind something and jumps out at me, it isn't nice and I have to run away from her. Then she chases me sometimes and makes a hiss noise at me and tries to hit me with her paw. That's ok cause sometimes she tries scratching mommy's really old chair and I have to run up to her and growl and bark. She doesn't like that, but it makes me happy!

Mommy got married in June. She didn't think she'd ever do that again after my first daddy died. We both miss him sometimes. My new daddy married mommy and bought us a house. There is a big yard for Precious and me to play in.

When Heather brings over the girl and boy I still like to get on mommy's lap to keep from getting chased by them. They are better now about petting me soft.

In the mornings I get to go babysit Grandma. I let her take me for walks, feed me treats and hold me. I also take naps on her bed. I give her kisses and let her rub my tummy.


Dear People,

My person (daddy) got married for the first time ever to Ralphie's mommy (dogs drool, cats rule). At first I wasn't happy about having a dog for a little sister, now it's alright, I have explained that big sisters are supposed to tease little sisters.

I enjoy the days that Ralphie gets to go babysit, I like having the house to myself. I am happy to see everyone when they come home from work though. Daddy is so good he knows to feed me first, then to fix dinner for mommy.

It's fun when the girl and boy come over to play. I run and hide. Sometimes I have to come out and see what they are doing. The girl talks nice to me, the boy looks like he wants to pull my tail. I have to tease Cory a little bit cause he's allergic to cats.

Daddy got us a huge Christmas tree. Heather and her babies decorated it for us. There is a pretty ball on the tree just the right height for me to bat at over and over, I like it.

Daddy takes care of all of us. He plays with me when I want him to, he lets me take a nap in his lap. He's a good daddy. Mommy is alright, she takes care of daddy and makes him laugh. Daddy likes her a lot, but I'm still his Precious!

Merry Christmas,

December 6

It was a very good day. We started singing Christmas carols at church.
It's beginning to look a little like Christmas around our house. The tree is up with lights and 3 ornaments on it. I really need to get it taken care of. We have most of our presents bought. The cat sleeps by the tree at times.

I have been thinking of how Christmas changes ever so slightly from year to year. This will be my first Christmas in my own house is a long time. Granted I have lived in an apartment in the past several years, but there is something a bit different. Maybe it's more hiding places for presents. Poprock dragged out the Christmas tubs and low and behold the decorations I was looking for were not there, where can they be I wonder. I have been given instructions that this is not the year that the whole house gets decorated, just wait until next year. I really need to finish the tree though.

It was announced in church today that we will be doing a service project instead of having a ward dinner. I 'm excited about that, it should be interesting.
