Twas the Day Before Christmas...

Yep, there have been fewer December posts and less visits to your blogs (we hope to catch up very soon!).  But we've been busy peoples...  as mom always says, "the more there is to actually blog about, the less time there is to actually blog."

Our big bro, Jaden had his eleventh birthday last week.  To celebrate we went to another small town to check out there light show.  It was awesome!




A few days before that we were very blessed by a neighboring town's live nativity.  It really brought the story to life... but I guess that's what they meant by "live" nativity!

That same night, Mistletoe found us and because there was no room at the inn (aka shelter), she came home with us.  We were very excited when we found her a furrever home just two days later.  She is now named Peppermint and enjoying the good life.


Then Aunt Shawn and Uncle Paul came to visit.  They are our favorite relatives cause they really love us doggies.  Don't tell the human kids, but we're really the reason they come for visits... they just can't get enough of us!!


And our favorite tradition each year is caroling to friends.  We spent a few days out and about spreading tidings of comfort and joy.  We had so much fun!!




We also oversaw the construction of a gingerbread house... and it's subsequent destruction:



And the human girl, Dacey, her Christmas gift was a room remodel.  So they've been busy painting in there and for some strange reason, we were not allowed to help with that project!




Oh, and our favorite Aunt and Uncle also gifted us with a perfect "finishing touch" for our yard decorations.. a six foot Golden Retriever.



It has been a fantastic Christmas season and we are sad to see it drawing to a close, but we carry the Christmas season and it's true meaning in our hearts each and every day of the year.  JESUS IS THE REASON....


MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!
