Christmas Day - 2010

Now for the wrap up of the marathon blog Christmas posts. We come to THE day, and oh what a day! Kids got spoiled, as usual!

I mean ALL of the kids....

Alex and Brendon spent Christmas at their dad's house this year.
Here is all of the stocking loot!!!!!!!!!!!
The toys were Terry's DREAM! Anything he can put together.......and he is in HEAVEN!!!
Dusty is so funny, whenever she gets a new bone, she has to put her "stank" on it. She is rolling around on it in her dog bed. What a goof!!!
Of course Santa brought CASH!

The first place we hit was Grandpa Steven's and Peama's for brunch. She always makes such a good meal we have to roll on out of there. WE got spoiled at their house. All kinds of goodies, but best of all.....Peama's homemade caramels...yum!!!! Next up we went to Grandpa Jay and Sue's house. These next images are pretty funny. I had the camera on burst to catch Tiger because he is so fast. I caught him jumping up on me and this is what it looked like......Yeah this is his face RIGHT IN THE LENS!
Then he backed off a bit. He is too funny!
I think dad liked what we got him! We got spoiled here too.
I think Raylor is hungry, what do you think???
After Dad's we went home to rest a bit, then off to mom's for the evening's finale. Here are some super cute little booties for MiniCoop.
Boston and Allee came with Alex! I was so excited!!!
I felt bad though. Last year, everyone had presents for Allee and Boston, and then things happened that they didn't make it. Now this year they made it, and no one had presents for them. Sorry!!!!
Too cool!
Topher got his blankie! He had been waiting for that!
Tim got Sonic! I think that was his favorite present of the day!
Grandpa and Grandma gave us a very special gift ($$$) which was WAY TOO MUCH!!!! It was greatly appreciated and put to VERY good use!!!!!
This year Jason and Courtney brought Sue with them. I was really glad she could join us!!!
Hanh and Brian came later, but I didn't get their picture. We had a great Christmas; so lucky, blessed and loved. Merry Christmas 2010 everyone!!!!

Christmas Eve with the Turners!

Hoo Boy! Christmas Eve! And what an Eve it was. We spent it with our good friends, the Turners. In the usual fashion the "Fairly Odd Parents" spoiled Timmy and Topher Turner ROTTEN. Here they are with their Wii game.

Lisa gave me Cupcake!!!!

I won't repeat here what Turner's cozy says. To see it, you'll have to come camping!!!

Drink up, Bitches!!!!!!

Sexy mamas!!!! Of course we were all in our jammies. It WAS Christmas Eve (duh) :)

Bryce got Buzz Lightyear jammmies!!!!

Okay, the self portraits started coming out after a little "cupcake".

Had to get one with Bryce!!!

When we first got there, Sampson and Baer TOTALLY sniffed out their gift. We couldn't even but the bags down. What did they get????? Well bones!!! After HOURS of chewing they finally wore themselves out.

Damn its hard to be a dog.

We had a BLAST, but had to hurry home so Santa wouldn't miss us. Note to self. Do NOT go to next day family Christmas parties with a hangover.

Now For a Short Break - Christmas Dogs

Now comes the time of the year that the dogs just LOVE....................spa day! They are so funny when I drop them off. I literally had to mop Dusty up off the floor of the groomer to pick her up and give her to the lady. Then she runs from me when I want to take her picture too. I have to sneak up on her or she won't look at me. Sound like someone we know????? (Tim)
Last year Gizmo looked like he'd been smoking weed. I took them to a different groomer this year. I guess they don't pass out drugs. He looks like he has been beaten. Or maybe that is the guilty look for making him smell good ("I worked on that horrid smell for MONTHS and you took it away from me!:)
I provided the Christmas bandanas. Don't worry, Santa Claus took REALLY good care of them and trauma is forgotten. At least until next time................

Okay, so the holiday was getting a little crazy and I didn't get pics, but everyone got shirts again. I did a little better this time. Bren got a Grateful Dead shirt (again, great role model!), but Tim got Popeye and Topher got a sport shirt. Terry got what Topher called a "Ghost Rider" shirt. Gotta love it!!!
