"We don't stop laughing because we grow old;
we grow old because we stop laughing."

Hi my doggie, kitty and hammie friends and your peeps.

The SJMC Tree Decorating Contest was a huge success. Mommy posted pictures of 13 of the trees that entered the contest but there were a bunch more that didn't get to be judged because they missed the deadline. Yesterday Mommy forgot to take her camera to the associates dinner, so we don't have pictures of the late arrivals but they were all beautiful!! We had two doggies that guessed the correct tree but first before the big announcement of the winning tree and our doggie winners, here are the pictures of the runner ups.
