We *Finally* Decorated

19 Dec


So I told you that mom/dad were tossing around ideas about how to decorate for the holidays this year. They didn’t want to put up a tree because of the fiasco last year. I know – I know. The tree got tired! That’s my story and I’m sticking to it – snorts.

So you all know what a crazy person how my mom loves Mickey Mouse. Well, they found a Mickey Mouse lamp post – isn’t it adorable?! And it’s very sturdy… you know in case it gets tired. They said Santa will come down the chimney and put presents around the base of the pole. Isn’t that excited and neat? I was wondering how he was going to find us without a tree. But this is like super best, right?

So the house is decorated. Cookies will be made and put out for the jolly ole guy. I guess it’s time to make out my Christmas list. I’ve put a lot of thought into this. Here I go:

Bacon’s Christmas List 2013

  • I wish all of my friends here in blogville a wonderful Christmas and a great New Year. May all of their wishes come true. May all of their aches and pains go away. May they have all of the items they wish and want.
  • I wish for my dads vision to be touched so that he can see mom’s blue eyes once again.
  • I wish for mom’s mean old Rheumatoid Arthritis to go somewhere else and live for a change so that mom’s snap, crackle and pop subsides.
  • I wish for the purr things here at the Hotel Thompson to get extra kibbles and treats.
  • And Santa if there is anything left in your bag of tricks after these other requests are granted, I wish for my stocking to be filled with wonderful fruits and veggies. And one more thing. I know this is asking for a lot but I heard daddy singing about wanting this in the shower and now I kind of want one too. And you just need to bring one. I promise to share. Please. I really want a hippopotamus for Christmas.

God bless you Santa! And thank you for all of my friends and family!

    I hope you get a HIppo! We were watching a program the other week about a family who found an orphan hippo and it pops back to visit them – literally walks into their house lol

      OMP (oh my pig)! That would be so exciting. I don’t think mom would mind parking her two cars out on the street so it can sleep in the garage, do you? Snorts. XOXO – Bacon

    Love it!!! PS, do you have any tips for having enough cookies to still leave some for Santa? They have a way of disappearing around here waaaay before Christmas… 😉

    • PigLove

      12/19/2013 at 11:13 am

      You have a cookie thief too?! That is amazing. We have one here too at the Hotel Thompson. I suggest hiding them in a stash somewhere that DAD can’t find them. Yep, I said it. DAD is our thief – snorts. XOXO – Bacon

      • Lori Fontanes

        12/19/2013 at 11:40 am

        Dad?! No!!! Shocking!!!! 😉

      • PigLove

        12/19/2013 at 12:18 pm

        I know, right?! I always catch him in my food. I just know it has to be him. He loves his cookies. XOXO – Bacon

    Bacon, you’re just the most thoughtful pig. Always thinking of everyone else first. We hope it all comes true for your family and for you, especially that stocking idea. Yum yum, me too!

    • PigLove

      12/19/2013 at 11:16 am

      See, I would gladly share my stash with you Cocco. We gotta work on getting closer in our living arrangements. Are you going to stay up and wait for Santa? I did last year and I’m planning on it this year as well. I’m going to catch him one of these years. I just know it. XOXO – Bacon

    12/19/2013 at 11:18 am

    Thank you Bacon for your wishes, I always say that pigs have better memories than humans. What are you going to do with a hippopotamus for Christmas? Do you know that more people are killed here in Africa by them than any other animal. Must it be male or female? just kidding. 🙂 A Merry Christmas to you and yours. Leo, Alice and Angel. I am taking some cake to them for Christmas as they also like sweet things.

    • PigLove

      12/19/2013 at 11:22 am

      Snorts – but if I got a baby and it grew up with us like I did with the purr things and humans, surely it would be ‘nice’, right? Snorts. Daddy started it by singing that song in the shower – might I add extremely off key. After a couple of days of it, it kind of stuck and I started humming it. It would be really cool to keep in the garage – snorts. You my friend have a most excellent Christmas!! We’ll be thinking of all of you. XOXO – Bacon

  11. easyweimaraner

    12/19/2013 at 12:26 pm

    Bacon, I agree with all of your wishes,specially for your mom and dad. Such a Hipppotamus could be a cool thingy. It could live in my bathtub and I never had to take a bath :o)

    • PigLove

      12/19/2013 at 1:05 pm

      *That* is exactly right my friend. Another perk for having a hippo. I could do with less baths – snorts. XOXO – Bacon

    Such a sweet and unselfish list, B. My mom has the evil RA, too! I would LOVE to wish that thing away. Since she got a brand new knee this summer, we can walk around like crazy because she feels so much better. When she walked with a cane, we only stayed on our block. Now I can see friends everywhere! Christmas came early, I guess… We will say prayers for that wish to come true for you.

    Love and licks,

    • PigLove

      12/19/2013 at 6:38 pm

      Aaww thank you so much my sweet friend. I’m glad to hear your mom is feeling so much better. I’m working on my mommy. Hopefully 2014 will be her year. XOXO – Bacon

    That Mickey Mouse lamp post is darling. Bacon I hope Santa brings you every little and big thing on your list. You are a good pig!

    • PigLove

      12/19/2013 at 9:14 pm

      Aaww thanks my sweet. I really hope so too. I’ve been really trying to be good lately. I haven’t chased the purr things all day. Snorts. XOXO – Bacon

    Mickey Mouse is lit up pretty good. Santa should have no finding your house. Very cute. That is a great Christmas list Bacon. Don’t think I ever heard that song either. Have a great day!

      That should say Santa should have no trouble finding your house.

      • PigLove

        12/19/2013 at 9:17 pm

        I understood completely. 🙂 I was working on a lighthouse in the backyard by digging a hole for the foundation. Did you know that is not accepted here at the Hotel Thompson? Dad would have spanked me if he could have caught me and if I didn’t run behind mommy. PLOL. XOXO – Bacon

    • PigLove

      12/19/2013 at 9:15 pm

      Aaww it’s a great song, isn’t it? You just have to smile and chuckle and perhaps sing right along 🙂 XOXO – Bacon

    12/19/2013 at 11:20 pm

    A wonderful Christmas to you, too Bacon. And give my best to your family at the Hotel Thompson, too, won’t you? I love the song…I’ll be humming it all night and dreaming of hippopotamuses. 🙂

    • PigLove

      12/20/2013 at 9:01 am

      aaww – daddy started singing another song in the shower this morning. something about wanting two front teeth for Christmas. He certainly is twisted, isn’t he? Snorts. XOXO – Bacon

  16. sakuraandme

    12/21/2013 at 11:04 pm

    Haha! I hope Santa gives you your hippo to play with, Bacon. 🙂
    Cool Mickey light. I sang the song as I was typing. Haven’t heard it in ages and just loved it.
    Hugs Paula xxxx

    • PigLove

      12/22/2013 at 5:07 pm

      I didn’t think I was going to like the light but it really has grown on me. Daddy has changed humming songs. Now he’s singing something about wanting his two front teeth for Christmas. Dude he is weird – snorts. XOXO – Bacon

      • sakuraandme

        12/23/2013 at 9:40 am

    One of my favorite holiday songs! 😀
    A bit of trivia…my hubby’s stepsister’s father-in-law (got all that?!) was a musician in the orchestra that recorded that song.

    Awww, Bacon, those are nice wishes on your list, especially for your mom and dad. I wish that for them, too. Merry Christmas!


    • PigLove

      12/22/2013 at 6:42 pm

      That is so very cool! I followed right along and understood that 🙂 we’ve all been singing that song this year. Love it!! XOXO – Bacon


This piggy would love to snort with you :)
