Yuletide Greetings!

Oooo a presie was waiting for me at my grandpawrents.

What is this?  A ‘Winter Onesie’!? Are we going to the North Pole?


A little lie down needed after all that.

My Grandpawrents made us a super traditional English Christmas lunch.

“I’m dreaming of a Bronze turkeeeeey!”

Our christmas turkey came from Norfolk, which is where we are moving to!  It was great to take time out from moving and enjoy the Christmas days at my grandpawrents.  We felt very lucky and grateful that we could all be together.

Paul carves the turkey and he remembers to fill my turkey bowl.

Grandpaw made sure some extra turkey bits came my way. He has to be very quick so that my human does not see, otherwise he gets in trouble for feeding me at the table!

No joy from Paul though.

Luckily Vikki didn’t notice the extra turkey distribution.

Everyone was very happy to be together enjoying the lovely lunch and presies.

    Your Christmas dinner looked divine! Especially that lovely bronze turkey and sparkly dessert. Those gardening books look interesting. We must check out the Gardening Techniques book.

    Sorry so late with response, the Christmas holidays are the busiest three weeks for pet sitters. First off…great jumpsuit. Zola looks like she’s ready either to go to space or go for a run around the block. “Nyom,” perfect word for dog eating. Awesome blue hats…whats the story with those?
