Pre-Christmas Present

Hi everyone! I have been away from blogging for a few too many days. This time of year sure is crazy! But I wanted to share some of my recent adventures with you. A few days ago I got a really cool pre-Christmas present. It's a sweater in my favorite colors: orange and brown!!!
Mommy ordered it from this place called Olive Green Dog. They have some cool eco-friendly stuff. She says she also got me a present for Christmas from there, but she won't let me see it or play with it until Christmas morning!

Another fun thing I did last weekend was go get our Christmas tree. We went to a real tree farm in the mountains and cut it ourselves!
Here I am saying, "Daddy, let's go this way!"

In the end, I think we ended up with a good one:

And here is one last picture, just so that Daddy can show off his new digital SLR birthday present. He said to Mommy, "This is the cutest picture I have ever taken of anyone, ever."
This is in fact the very first picture he took with the camera after it arrived in the mail. I am his favorite subject! Also, I think this picture can be my PhotoHunters picture for the week, because I think my head looks a little bit WIDER than usual here. (The theme is WIDE, by the way.)

I hope everyone is having a lovely vacation and that your parents do not have to work too hard this week.

Bye for now!

Hi Poppy! I think we should all get on a plane and fly somewhere sunny and hot! Cold paws def. suck. But Mommy has realized that it's not so much the snow that bothers me (I LOVE SNOW), it's the salt they use to melt it.

Wanna head over to Hawaii?

Aww Popsy... you are too cute, especially in that picture!!! And oh my dog - I think if we had a real Christmas tree I might give in to the temptation to make big boy pee-pee on it!

Pee S: I love your pre-Christmas sweater! I would get one myself, but it would never look that good one me :-)
