It’s time to recap Christmas 2023! It seems like we just put up the tree and it is already about time to take it down. I love the tree. Do you know why I love to lay under it all the time? It is to remind Mom that I am a gift 🙂
Bailie baked the delicious Christmas cookies earlier this month. Mom froze some of them, so we had plenty of cookies to munch on Christmas weekend. You humans know, good food, especially snacks are important in celebrating Christmas.
We all did our Elfies, selfies taken when we pose as an elf. All our Elfies are on our Facebook page. It was a lot of fun coming up with our own ideas for our Elfies.
Christmas Eve morning, Mom surprised Olivia and Nelson with a holiday Sniff & Go. They each got one search. There were twelve hides and they had three and a half minutes to find as many as they could.
Nelson searched first. He was a bit overwhelmed by all that odor in a fairly small space. As he started to search, he saw a big stuffed dog with antlers and it startled him. Thankfully, he was able to keep his focus. He worked hard the whole time and found five of the hides.
Olivia had her turn about ten minutes later. She took off like a crazy girl as she always does. The whirlwind searched hard the entire time and found seven of the hides. Funny thing is she didn’t find three of the five Nelson found. It was a fun time for Mom, Olivia and Nelson. We don’t know if any dog found all twelve. We do know when we left most dogs missed a lot of the hides.
Bailie went to Gramma’s on Christmas Eve with Mom. When she returned, I got everything ready for Santa and his reindeer. Mom let us all go to bed early to make sure we would not be awake when Santa came by.
Holidays mean special and extra tasty meals. Christmas Eve, we had salmon for dinner, Christmas morning we had beaver with an egg, and beaver again for Christmas dinner. The meals were delicious!
Santa was very good to us all. We each got a new Furballz, but Mom says we are going to keep them packed for a bit longer until the ones we have are really dead. Each of us also got a bag of our favorite snacks or chews. As always, we will share everything with each other. Christmas morning did not disappoint.
The last day of our Advent Calendars always has the biggest surprise. This year, door twenty five had a really nice piece of chicken jerky. We all got to enjoy that on Christmas Day.
Bailie almost always gets to go to Gramma’s house. Last week I got to go one day, Bailie went Christmas Eve, and Mom chose Olivia to go on Christmas Day. Olivia says there were so many squirrels to watch, she almost lost her mind!
It’s fun to recap Christmas and remember what a special time it was. The holidays make us all happy and we hope that all our friends also had a happy and fun howliday!
