Merry Christmas to All Our Friends

>> Wednesday, December 23, 2009

Maddie and Annabelle went to visit Santa. It was quick, easy, and fun. The worst thing that happened was that Annabelle exposed Santa's hairy leg. No big deal. I'm sure Santa's going to treat them well!

Then it came time for Tango's Christmas photo. First, a barn cat caught his attention and he wanted to follow her. I'm sure he thought she knew where the food was hiding out.

Of course as the barn cat walked away Tango couldn't focus on any
place but behind him. I'm sure he was lamenting on how the friendly cats get to roam free and he's always
contained one way or least hopefully!

Then Tango decided it was time to kiss and cuddle. Now usually that's just fine with me, but since my sister visiting from Texas was taking the photo (and freezing) we needed to move things along.

As usual, Tango found it hard to take "no" for an answer so he decided to show me who was head of the herd for a minute or two.

But we finally got his attention by rattling a box of Craker Jacks...which he sniffed quite attractively by lifting his lower lip to get a better smell...horses do that. All in all, we got lots of festive photos but just not the perfect shot.
Nonetheless, all of us would like to wish you a very Merry Christmas from our family to yours!


Jan, Chuck, Annabelle, Maddie, and Tango

Those kids don't look too happy about being on Santa's lap. Tango likes to show off for his mom doesn't he?
Merry Christmas to you and your family.
