Report from behind enemy lines...

You might ask who the enemy is?? WELL it is my MOM. She has refused to blog, refused to READ blogs, so I am considering waging war with her. Considering my weapons of mass carpet destruction, she better take this threat seriously. Since I have her attention here I am going to make her update you on all our Christmas fun.

The Christmas excitement got under way with a visit from our cousin dog, Bailey.

She sure is a pretty thing, but she seemed a little shy around Tanner and I. I cannot imagine why I only tried to hump her 3-6 times. I mean, I can totally understand not wanting to hang out with Tanner because he is a Doofus, but I am pretty darn cool.

She is a pound puppy that my Dad's uncle rescued and she is super sweet and pretty, but she just didn't feel like playing with us. Maybe after she gets to know us better, Mom said we can be a bit intimidating when we team up on dogs. She better remember that as I make my war plans.

Christmas Eve we had to stay home, which was fine as we were tired from endlessly chasing Bailey in circles visiting with Bailey.

I did give Dad his present Christmas eve...

Talk about the BEST GIFT EVER. Ya, that is me, in all my Yankees glory. Mom got this from and she loves it. The sign in the outfield is advertising CUZ toys. How totally perfect, right?! I will make Mom update some more soon, we just got a new HDTV so she has sort of turned into a drooling couch potato. But I must admit my Steelers looked GREAT on it! More later from Stains War HQ.

Joey is that a, um, deposit of yours in the first photo? Listen. My momma is having mental issues too. I had to pull her back from the brink twice already today from hitting the "mark all as read" button and it still might happen.

She's on vacation for crap's sake. As if there is anything else to do than visit my pals. Sheesh.

Hey. Thanks for snapping her out of it long enough for us to see your little self. Great job harassing Bailey. I pretty much did the same thing with my nephew.

Ooh, what a great photo for your dad!! That's so pawfect!!

I don't see why Bailey shouldn't enjoy your humping. It's a very gracious way to welcome guests into your home.

Uh-oh, my mom also ordered a HDTV through Amazon. Guess that means no more blogging for me either...

Hey Joe,
I must say that your Yankee pic looks awesome!
Here's a tip about dealing with your cousin dog: don't hump her. She's related to you and most folks find that weird. Unless you're Southern.

You better tell mom to get on the ball and let her know you are serious about the carpet.. At least you are warning her ahead of time. Awesome picture Joe...

Hi Joe and Tanner,

We all love your blog! My name is Magenta, I'm a 13 years young BT. I read about you guys every day with my mom and dad who are pretty sure that in a former life I was a super model: These are from my holiday photo shoot. The good thing is, I'm just incredibly cute, as all Bostons are, but I don't have that supermodel 'tude, I'm a little sweet pea. Thank you for all the smiles you bring us! Hope you are keeping warm and enjoying the hollydaze.

Hmmmm... waging war against the mom is not such a great idea cos she could decide NOT to feed you and that'd be a disaster!!

The present for your dad is FAB!! We bet he loved it...

Great Christmas gift, Joe!! Way to combine who Dad certainly loves best (you, of course) with the other thing he loves (next) best - the Yankees!! Where'd you get that made?? Think I'd look pretty buff under an OSU football helmet...
That Bailey is a cutie, I'd have humped her too. She's a tall girl, must have been tricky.... Looks like a giant Jack Russell, but if she's sweet, than that's probably not here breed (LOL - my old grumpy brother Duncan was a JR, they do get crotchety in their old age & he was almost 17).

Happy New Year Joe - don't drink too much champagne!!

We are having trouble with the Mom here too, something about having too hectic a week, being exhausted, and too many blogs to catch up on.

Love that present you gave your Dad - awesome!!!

You are awesome, Joey. That's all that needs to be said. And your cousin Bailey knew that all along.

No wonder Bailey was intimidated.
