Christmas Kisses

Happy Christmas Eve to those of you who are celebrating.  This is a late post, because I was just too busy baking earlier today, and I need to go do some more baking, but Christmastime has always been a time for memories and contemplations for me.

I LOVE ornaments of this style.  The glass is so thin, and yet, nowhere near as fragile as it appears.   You have to know…  I KISSED this ornament when I unwrapped it!  I have a host of special ornaments I love dearly, mostly because they take me back to Christmases past with just a glance, but this year, this baby is top of the heap, so to  speak.

This one just makes me stooopid-happy.  Jessi confessed that she was so pleased with her “find” that she had a hard time keeping it until Christmastime.  No doubt.  I get very excited about the perfect gift when I find it too.

Our stoic Hooey Hound

That’s such a proper basset, much more like our dearly departed Fred, not so much like zany Sissy.  Oh, Sis would LOVE to bring each of you a gift, personally delivered.

But girlfriend doesn’t do Santa hats.  We’ve CLEARLY established that.

And can you REALLY even imagine packages on that back!?  It would be impossible to secure them snuggly enough…

Not that Gretchen would ever allow Sis to transport a bone on her back…

Anyway, I love the ornament, truly, deeply, madly, do.  Thank you, Jessi!!

And merry Christmas y’all.  Everyone else is snoring.  That’s a good time to go bake.

    Oh I think I would squee and kiss it too. I was amazed at how many bassett ornaments I had when we were trimming the tree last night. I can remember each ornament, when we got them and why. I especially love my “year” ornaments.

    Your girls are precious. And Fred, Fred most certainly was a “Proper Dog.”

    Merry Christmas. May the New Year be good to you. g

  7. LOVE this post. It really helps a lot to get back to some of the Christmas spirit I used to feel. I had a fun evening with Lehu’s family laughed a lot.

    This is a hard time of year, but your post reminds me that there are happy memories and possibilities for more happy memories to be created.

    Merry Christmas.

  8. How perfect! Merry Christmas to you and The Knight, and Woof Woof Woof to the gggirls.

    What a perfect ornament. Maybe with friends in high places, we’ll find more PWD ornaments available.

    Have a wonderful Christmas. We got snow, but only a thin covering.

    A belated Merry Christmas to you and your pups. I hope Santa was as good to them as he was to Angus. But I don’t think pups make the naughty list. Cute pics.
