Christmas EVE!

It is Christmas Eve and for the first time ever we got to go to My Dad's Gramma's house to celebrate. That NICE Aunt Patty pulled some strings and got us an invite.

The Doofus was quite the spectacle driving over there, he got some smiles out of other drivers.

Tanner was reunited with Nice Nice Aunt Patty. He was pretty excited. We were BOTH pretty excited because there were so many people and so much FOOD!

We stayed where the food action was.

Our pretty human cousin Jameson was there. She was having a great time with her Dad!

She also hung out with our Dad's Gram who ALWAYS gives us a zillion trillion treats!

That is Mom trying to look brave while obviously about to collapse under the weight of the fat Yule log, Tanner.

We got Aunt Patty a stuffed dog that is just like us, so she can always remember the very special Doofus that she rescued. We were both real excited to give her the present...then Tanner spotted Jameson's bottle and he got REAL excited about that!

Then my Grandma grew antlers and it was time to go home.


pee s. Mom might have posted comments from her new blog name about eating by herself because she is a so we are sorry. she will probably make me blog about HER new blog soon but sorry for the random comments.

I know it is way too late to be up, but what can I say. My mom just got home from her Christmas ever out for ever dinner. But it is the first time she's left me alone since Friday, so I guess I should be happy about that. And I;m doing really well and feel great so....

Anyway, I love that Auntie Patty dressed exactly like you boys. That is so thoughtful and sweet. I hope you guys managed to get a crazy amoung of treats.

I hope Santa brings tons of pressies for you.


P.S. I feel fantastic!!!!! I think I'm going to be around for a long time.

Hey we are LOVING your mom's new blog. Our Servant went there without coming here first, and she wondered if that was whose blog it was. We are LOVING it because it is going to encourage our Servant to COOK! And where there's cooking there's the pre-rinxe cycle: US!!!

Merry Christmas, Joe and Tanner and humans. Thank you for all the wonderful smiles you have generated here in Paducah!

What a great family time you had. I will have to check out your Mom's blog. How can she keep up with it all and you guys also. If Tanner had candles on his back he would make a great yule log.

Merry Christmas to all of you in Arizona!! I got some cool pressies from Santa. What did you get? We had lots of food at our Christmas eve party, but none for Lillie. I was tied up in the living room while the hoomans ate. Mom says its because I can't behave and I steal the food off teh counter. I keep telling her that if she'd feed me I wouldn't have to steal!! Looks like you had a great time at your grandmas! Your aunt patty looks real nice! Of course she is, she rescued you and I met you and I wouldn't know you if that didn't happen. Lots of Christmas cheer, Lillie

It looks like you had a great time celebrating with your family. It was very nice of you to give your Aunt Patty a stuffed doofus. Maybe you can switch it for the real thing and she won't notice until it is too late?

Hope you and your family (and even Tanner) have a very merry Christmas!

What's up Joe! That looks like a totally fun party and your Aunt Patty looks like the greatest ever. Even if she did inflict the Doofus on you.

Merry Christmas dudes! I hope you got tons of snacks and prezzies.

I can totally see how connected Aunt Patty is with you guys. She even dresses like you. I be she'll take that stuffed Boston home and sleep with him!

You guys were the hit of the party. Tell your mama she looks like she's about 13 years old. (Too young to have a pup as mature as you, Joey). Your cousin Jameson looked like she was having a good time too. Glad to see she was willing to share her bottle...

Goober love,
