With mommy being sick and Houdini being sick during the holidays, we weren’t real timely in getting some thank you’s out that we needed to. Please forgive us for our delay my friends.
The first thank you we want to throw out is to Auntie Sharon of Gentlestitches. She sent us the coolest Christmas card. Why do you ask? Because we are not used to seeing Santa Claus at the beach – snorts. Here, we celebrate Christmas in the cold whereas in Australia it’s the Summer. Such a neat different huh? Maybe one day mom/dad can celebrate in Australia – wouldn’t that be fun?
With the card she sent, she sent me a cute little black piggy – remind you of anyone? Snorts – oinks. And she sent a red Christmas hat. See it in the picture? Squeals – I was so excited! I let mommy bring it to her office to put on her desk. That way she can look at it and (1) think of Auntie Sharon and (2) think of this little oinker during the day – snorts.
Then Auntie Sharon sent me a 2015 calendar! OMP (Oh my pig!) Look at these awesome pictures throughout the year. I was so excited. Auntie Sharon said that she had been to most of these places in Australia – WOW! They are so beautiful. And I’ll tell you a secret. These pictures made dad turn a little green. He wasn’t sick or anything. He was green with envy – evil snorts. He wants to visit them too.
Mom is going to hang this calendar in my bedroom for me to look at during the year. Oh, ignore mom’s fingers int he picture. It’s so hard to teach her how to take great pics 🙂
The next person I want to give a shout out and a thank you to is my brother Easy. Now this is a funny tale. Easy and his staff sent a package to me on 12/12/2014. I didn’t get it until Friday, 01/02/2015. Amazing huh? If only we had strapped a camera on to this package to see the places it went! It was rubber banded together, shrink wrapped and then taped together by the post office. I actually had to get daddy to help me open it 🙂
But when I did – squeals – it was like Christmas all over again! Look at the stash that was in the bag – ALL of us anipals were so excited. Mommy snagged the piggy calendar.. something about first dibs. I’m not sure what that meant – snorts. The cats grabbed their treats. Me and Houdini grabbed the pillow and toys. It was a blast!
And get a look at that pillow – what a catch! The little hands stick out off of the pillow. Houdini would get on top of it and it looked like the hands were hugging him. OMP! It was hilarious!
But there was one toy in the bag that is strictly Houdini’s. He has had so much fun with this ‘newspaper’. He grabbed it mumbling something about dibs – what is that? – and took off through the Hotel Thompson. This thing has a high squeak and trust me. The dog knows how to squeak his newspaper. It was a snort of a good time for the little guy this weekend. I played with the ball that was in the bag. For some reason, I don’t mind pushing it around with my snout. Not too much though because it’s still winter and I really don’t do much in the winter except sleep, eat, poop, sleep, eat, pee – snorts. You get the picture.
So dear friends – thank YOU so very much from the bottom of all of our hearts here at the Hotel Thompson. We really, REALLY enjoyed our gifts.
