Lots of news!

Hello, everybody!  Sorry we missed checking in with you the past two days - we've been really busy getting ready for Christmas, Mom's been super busy at work, and then yesterday we had to not just get all packed up and get the cat kids situated, but then we had to drive for almost four hours to get to Grandma & Grandpa's house to spend Christmas with them!  Honestly, this time of year it seems like all we do is travel!  Now, I don't have a driver's license myself, so on this trip, Mom did the driving, Aunt K. was the co-pilot, and Phoebe, Cosmo, and I just layed on our comfy bed in the backseat, closed our eyes, and let visions of sugarplums and the like dance in our heads, and before we knew it, we'd arrived!

Grandma & Granda and our Uncle Riley were really glad to see us, and we wanted to stay up and visit all night, but soon we were sleepy and had to go to bed.  But before that, we wanted to just do a little visiting around to see what we all we had missed in the past two days that Mom hadn't let us blog.  We checked in here and there, and it sounds like all of you are really gearing up for the holiday.  We also discovered that our feline pals Fuzzy and Zoe (you might also know them as the OK Cats) had given us an award!  Imagine our surprise and delight - it was like Chrismas had come early!  We are so flattered to have been chosen - and are so excited! 

So now we just need to figure out how to put the award on our blog.  We asked Mom, but she said she didn't know how and would try to figure it out for us later today.  But if anyone knows how, please let us know, ok?  And thanks again to Fuzzy and Zoe for this really wonderful honor - we so appreciate it!)

Now - when we arrived last night we immediately saw that Grandma & Grandpa had been really busy decking the halls since we were last here at Thanksgiving.  So of course first thing this morning we had to check everything out.  We also took a few pictures so you could see a little bit of where we are and what's going on ...

Here I am with my friend, Frosty!  Good to see you, buddy!

I don't know - I think something's up with this guy ... he doesn't feel cold to me?


Phoebe and me in front of the mantel ... I don't really like sitting up here as you can see.

And here's Phoebe with one of Frosty's cousins ... Freezy?

The stockings are hung ....

All ready for Santa to fill them with yummy treats!

Maybe later on we'll show you a picture of the stockings that Grandma's first graders made for Phoebe, Cosmo, Riley, and me.  I think they're really cute!

Talk to you soon, everybody!

Congrats on your award! Don't worry you will figure out how to put in on your blog - usually you add it just like a photograph.

Hope you have a wonderful holiday. Love the cute pictures with the snowmen.

Your pal, Pip

Hi, new friend. I found you on OK cats and we received the award as well. We love the woffie photos with your stockings and the snowman.

You right click on the award and click on 'save as'. Mine went into my ' recent documents'.

On layout page, click on 'add a gadget'. On the pop up page, click where it says 'add a picture'.
Another page appears and there you follow instructions.
Click on ' choose file', then you will find the title of the award in your documents.
Click and then open. It will go to your blog.
You can then go back and place it where you want it by drag and drop.

This is easy, has to be for me.

You look so tiny next to those big snowmen. Your house looks great; have a good holiday!

Looks like your holiday is off to a very fun start!

We love your Christmas photos - very festive! We did the award a little different than Kassey and her mom. We just right clicked on the image and selected "Save Image As", then we chose our default photo folder as the place to save it. Then, we just added it as we do any of our photos. But don't worry about getting it added - that was kind of rotten of our mom to give it to you during the busiest time of year. Enjoy your holidays, friends!!!!

Your friends, Fuzzy and Zoe

And what, might I ask, have you done with Olivia????? I am worried!

Tucker said...

Dear Fuzzy & Zoe,

Thanks again for the award - we love it! Now, tell me - are we supposed to give this award to someone else after a certain time? (We want to make sure we don't violate blog etiquette.)

Dear Spitty,

Olivia, Tanner, and Finn are at home being sat on. Which they are not happy about, believe me, but they would also not like to travel to Grandma & Grandpa's either. Especially since Aunt M. & Uncle M.'s crazy English Bulldog puppy is coming here tomorrow for Christmas. It's something of a rock and hard place situation. I'm sure you understand.
