Images (and a few words!) of Christmas 2010

JD - Hi all - we hope you've had as fun a Christmas as we have!

Max - Here are some snaps of what we've been up to over the past few days....

All shook up! A new Elvis squeaky chicken from our blog sweetheart Sasha!

Plus a cool squeaky Roo - he's a tough little fella and has resisted our chewing thus far!

December 2010 has been the coldest in the UK since records began in 1910! We wanted a drink from a water trough whilst out on our Christmas Eve walk and FH managed to heave the top lump of ice off it for us to have a slurp from the cool, unfrozen stuff underneath. Here's JD posing with the ice!

Max ambles alongside the frozen river!

JD totally freaks FH out by walking on the frozen river - she was squawking and shrieking at him to 'get off NOW!' (The odd box thing you can see in the river is a hide for otters - don't forget, we walk at a nature reserve!)

Our advent calendars!

Us waiting for a nom from our advent calendars!

We open a Christmas pressie - ripping the paper off is great fun!

FH tortures us by making us wait to open a pressie from our great pal Syd, a rescue greyhound!

The torture continues as FH makes us pose with our fab new stuffies from Syd!

At last - let the playing commence!

Beach sunrise, Boxing Day morning

A well earned rest after so much excitement!

JD - And we haven't even showed you what MH and FH got us yet - can you guess what we got?!

Max - We can't wait to show you - it's JUST what we wanted!

Great to see you boys! I enjoyed every day of the advent calender you sent me. Now I'm not sure while we're stopping!

I can't wait to see you boys in your smoking jackets!

Happy Holidays, JD and Max - looks like you had a wonderful Christmas. It has been very cold here too, but we just can't seem to get much snow. We think the Snow Monster took it all to Europe.

JD and Max, we thought you might be wearing angel wings! You are certainly angels to us this year, and we can't thank you enough for running Blueberry's auction. We are so glad you had a good Christmas and hopefully we'll see more of you on your own blog now.
Thank you so much for that picture you sent us, too! It is just awesome!

Hmmm I wonder what they got you! A loofa? a new bed? greenies? ummm kong?

scotsmad said...

Water--do you want one lump or two? Hahaha. We've been watching all the cold and snow in the northern hemisphere. We were lucky on Christmas day to miss out on the predicted rain, but it was here for Boxing Day and today is looking a bit grey, too.

We love the advent calendar. We might have to get one next year....anything edible is okay with us.

Looks like your team will be taking home the Ashes again. We need a lot more practise!

XXXOOO Daisy, Kendra & Bella

Santa, Minnie and Christmas said...

Just love your pictures. We can almost feel the excitement you guys went through with your pressies and everything else during the Christmas season. We really can't guess what you guys got from your FH and MH. Must be something really fantastic. Your FH is just great at picking out pressies!

Mr. Pip said...

Love that picture of you on the beach! Looks like you got some very nice pressies.

Your pal, Pip

Mango said...

A most successful day. Happy holidays!

I love ice skating. Why did FH squeaky like elvis chicken? Huh? I'm gonna have to talk to momma about getting me an advent calendar. That's the best idea.

PS- move over on the couch for me

Dip-Dip and The Bridge said...

Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas, wow, that is quite a stash of toys you got.
As for that advent calendar, oohhhhh!
We think our FH would have been screaming like a banshee if we had gone on the ice!
Have a fun New Year and try not to get as merry as some FH's we could mention, he he.
Wags, Dip Bridge and Elliot xx

Gosh, what a happy, happy Christmas you boys had! I'm sorry abouts the torture, though. That happens to me, too. And, um, I'd keep an eye on that Roo. He looks kinda ticked off, if you ask me.

Did you get a new brudder or sister for Christmas? OH! Or maybe a GOAT!

Wiggles & Wags,

Omigod! I would be freaking out if Penny were walking on ice!

I guess each country has its scary moments. Ours is heat and snakes, just the opposite to yours, at the moment.

Happy New Year!
