I have this Santa hat fwom my twinny Nicky and sissie Jenny, and while it's bootiful, I was anxious to take it off and let Santa weaw it and show up at my house

It was not ouw oosual big Bootiful Chwissmuss wif all the hooman fwiends and welatives and big white tablecloth dinnew...

but a quiet , family one..my wheelie sissie Mywna and hew baby giwl Womy came out to see the twee and sing cawols wif me and flat Ewic..then they had to wush off to go to the Buwg to be wif Gilbewt and Bewtie at Mumsie's house

I twied to get dwessed in a celebwatowy way..couldn't decide between the gween ow the pink at fiwst..I didn't have a bootiful Owange wibbon

but mommi at least put on nice Chwissmussy lights to get us in the mood

then my Bwuvvew Duffy came to help me celbwate

Thewe was cheese and smoked salmon..two of ouw favowites

miammmmmmm, miammmmmmm

then thewe wewe gifts fow us..the hoomans didn't do gifts, but the essentials wewe thewe, hehehe...aftew all Chwissmuss is fow Childwen, fuwwy ow not

Daddi can't get enough of watching us

when Duffy went home, I felled asneep on Daddi's lap..the best!

chwissmuss is too exciting..it takes a lot out of a pup

Mommi stayed up to watch the fiwe aftew Daddi and I went to sneep and thought about ouw genewous , sweet fwiends and how gwateful she is to have you in ouw lives

a last cup of hot chocolate in a cup wif Lacie's face on it and she was weady to join us

the next mowning, I finally got to open my secwet Santa pwesent fwom sweet Maggie and Mitch(Mommi took it out of the packing box and put them in a bootiful bag that we still had fwom Ewic and his squawes, cause she knows I love to stick my head in bags, hehehe)

A special thanks to Sally fow owganising this secwet Santa pwessie exchange!!!

Thank you so vewy vewy Much Maggie and Mitch! I love the yummie cookies(lots of fwuity flavows), the cool stuffed bone which should take me a few houws to finish, heheh
the big owange wubbew squeekie(that should wake mommi up, hehehe) and the soft destuffed stuffie..it's almost too bootiful to munch..but you know I will

I wowe my destuffed chipmunk (fwom my dawling little Bwuvvew Duffy..it makes an elegant stole in the cold fow a lady, hehehe) while wowking on eating my faboolous bone

All in all , it was pawfect chwissmuss thanks to my deew fwiends !

I hope all of you had a gweat Chwissmuss and awe getting some gweat playtime and west
smoochie kisses

Unknown said...

Did you like the Petey slobber I left on that flat chipmunk - he's lots of fun. I have been in a terrible food coma all day long. You know how I'll rattle my bowl about 4 times a day? Not once today! Snoozing and snoring while Mom undecks the halls!

Your pal,



Hi Asta,

Looks like you had a lovely Christmas! Warm and cozy too just like it should be. Hope your New year is as wonderful!

Riley and Star.

Martha said...

Asta, that looked like the perfect xmas to us - ok so a little quieter than usual but quiet is good!
You have time to gaze into the fire and reflect and count your blessings.
You all looked cosy, warm and surrounded by love.
You guys always have the best food too.......
love and kisses
Martha & Bailey xxxx

ScrapsofMe said...

The Animal Doctor said...

I cannot think of a better way to celebrate Christmas than spending it with the ones you love. Merry Christmas Asta! ( YOu look bootiful in our pink ribbon)


Koobuss said...

Oh Kousin Asta,

Looks like you and your family had a real nice Christmuss. That's good. I'm happy for you.

Love and Koobuss Kisses,
Kousin Koobie

pee ess Your place looked bootiful. So did your smoked salmon. Your mommi must be a tremendous cook!

Moco said...

That does look like one great holiday.

Asta, what a lovely day you had! We know you enjoyed all of it and will remember it for days to come.

Hollie and Janie said...

What a fun Christmas you had! You and Duffy look so precious in your ribbons! All your presents look like so much fun!! You have the sweetest friends!!

TwoSpecialWires said...

Sissie Asta. You know what? We think that quiet family Christmases must sometimes be the BEST! We (selfishly) hope that someday WE can spend Christmas with our family. Who better to cuddle up next to and enjoy the love and joy of the season. We're sure your home glowed Christmas eve and Christmas day. Wasn't it the first Christmas for Romy?

You looked so lovely in your pink satin ribbon and your coat and Duffy's coat glistened like there was stardust sprinkled on them. And what a wonderful way to end the evening. In Daddi's lap. And cuddled up in a warm bed while Mommi enjoyed some quiet time to herself.

And what a great time you had receiving and opening such special pressies and treats and stuffies from your friends. Moma and our Girl told us we have pressies waiting for us for when we get home. It will be Christmas in January.

Now it's time to enjoy the days between the holidays. We are having a fun time at PJ's, Moma and NinaGirl are enjoying the beach (at least we HOPE they are! Maybe TODAY they'll get sand between their toes) and we can imagine YOU enjoying the personal quiet, away from the crowds, of your wonderful city. We'll imagine it and enjoy it vicariously!

Love you so much,
BruvverJake and SissieFergi xxoo

Asta my sweet pea.I'm practically wagging my wig wag off now I know you, Myrna, Romy and Mommi and Daddy, had a perfect Christmas :) Looked as though it was full of love (awww the photo of you and Daddy is superdooper special) with delicious food, delightful presents and the company of dear Duffy and Aunty Karen.What more could a squarie ask for apart from a bone - and you had that too!!

I'm betting Lacie will love your stylish way of wearing a chipmunk. But watch out for the anti furs brigade when you are on your dogwalks.

Remind Flat Eric to sing a rousing chorus of Olde Lang Syne on New Years Eve from me and the squares to you and yours ok?

Wiry Loves and a squillion hugs and kisses. Eric xxx

Kelly said...

Oh Asta, a quiet family Christmas is JUST what the doctor ordered. What a nice time.
You look so adorable in your pretty bow, and I always love to see Duffy's smiling face.
Much love to you and your mommi and daddi.
