Christmas Window

My mom spent all weekend decorating our Christmas window. It's in the wall between the living room and the kitchen. She says it's the perfect place for the tree and the best place for all the cards we received.

Count is: me 60, mom 8. I win!!

Here are some photos of the window. I hope you can see your card there--our camera is very low end.

My mom can look at the window all day when she's home working on the computer. All those cards help us feel so much better.

I got a cool package of presents from Addie & Zoe. Yum! I went straight for the green star chewie.
Thank you!!

This is one of those bad signs again. It means my mom is leaving us AGAIN. She wants to go visit her family which means we will be alone on Christmas. I am not happy about this. I don't even want her to go to work everyday! She says she needs to go, that there are times when she needs a hug from HER mom. I know what she means but I need her to stay!

{Mom note: I will be gone only 4 days and all my furbabies will be cared for by their favorite petsitter. I hate to be away on Christmas but everyone will be okay. Merry Christmas to all our friends!}

River and the rest, Merry Christmas! I hope you are enjoying your holiday with your petsitter! Mom will be home soon!!



HI River,
Hope your Christmas was ok even if your mum wasn't there. We had the same thing here, our mum needed to go home to Australia for a hug from her mum and grandma but she picked us up from the pet hotel for the last few hours of Christmas day together.


P.S. River, thanks for your beautiful card!

We watched our people pack too. They left us for a few days last week. It goes by faster than we thought. The wall of cards is great, look at all those friends.
