My best Christmas present & Mommy's too!!!

Hi everybody,

It was a wonderful Christmas for me and Mommy, even though we couldn't post for what seemed like forever. Mommy got to be home for 4 whole days and spent all but Christmas Eve with me. There was over 20 adults at my Aunt Pam's and only 2 children, so I stayed home, but that was OK, I didn't want to get stepped on. Money has been very tight lately and Mommy said we couldn't afford a new computer until after the new year. Then it happened!! SJMC gave two $300.00 bonuses to qualified associates in the CBO for exceeding goals for the months of October and November. They told everybody on the 23rd that the money would be on thier checks on the 24th. Mommy was so excited. She said it was the best Christmas gift she had ever gotten and the timing was perfect. So now we have a new computer and hopefully we can catchup on everything we missed.

Mommy bought me a bunch of my favorite treats, a new Christmas bandanna and a orange rooster. He even talks to me and chirps. I love him!!

Here I am with my new Christmas bandanna with snowmen heads on it.

A few days before Christmas, the mail person brought me a package from Addie, Lucie and Hailey, but Mommy wouldn't let me open it until Christmas day. I had to look at that box forever until Mommy said I could have it. It was worth the wait.

I was soooo excited, I was all paws so Mommy had to open it for me.

I got balls and toys and a Christmas tree and Moose cookie....Yummylicious!!
Mommy got some stuff too!! Thank you so much ladies!!!

This is my orange rooster. Mommy and I played tug of war with him and his neck almost came off. He still is still intact for now and hasn't lost his stuffing yet. I been dragging him in and out of the house and tossing him around so his days are numbered.

Mommy gave me just a little of my Peppermint flavored cookie I got from Addie, Lucie and Hailey. She said it was way to big to eat all at once. Just whose cookie is it anyway?

Mommy just learned how to take a video with my new camera. This is her first attempt. She was trying to get me to play with my rooster but as you can see I wasn't cooperating much.

It's so good to be back. Gotta go to bed now............Love, kisses and {{{huggies}}}
to all.........Mona

Found money is always good. How happy to have a brand new computer.

I understand about not wanting to play for the video. I do the same thing. I am cute until momma gets the camera and then I become stubborn.

We are soooo happy that you guys got a new computer!!

Glad you liked the gift too.

Looks like we might get a little snow tomorrow so be careful.

Lots of Luv & Kisses
Addie, Lucie and Hailey

CONGRATULATIONS to your Mom!! It isn't easy to meet goals two months in a row. And... your video was wonderful.
Love all your pressies. The rooster is the bestest ever.
Funny how all things come into place at just the right time isn't it. Must have had some help from Santa Paws. I'm just sayin'.

We love the pic of you on the bench with the parcel from Addie and her sisters! You are a real sweetie, Mona.. :)
