Big day!



Ready to celebrate!

The turkey is in the oven

Apple and pecans salad

Fruit and marshmallows salad

Our table

Turkey, salad, spaguetti

Checking (again) the presents

Finally playing with Spike (Natasha was bored)

Sleeping... waiting for Santa
My presents. Sweaters

A t-shirt and jackets

Balls, a leash and I guess the cutter is for my mom. BTW if you know a recipe for low fat cookies I would appreciate if you tell my mom about it!

A chicken and a foot

Chicken breast tenders. The only treat I can have right now.



I hope you all had great time with your families!
As you know our family is not big. They were 8 humans and 3 of us. My auntie and my mom started to prepare the food around 3 o'clock. Then my grandma joined them and everything was ready at 8 o'clock. Natasha, Spike and me had our dinners earlier, in separate rooms because they use to have meat bones and I only have kibbles and my grandma feared it could be a fight over our food.
The humans had they dinner at 9 o'clock and then, when everybody finished they were chatting and then we all got and opened our presents. I got lots of clothes, some toys and a bag of treats. My mom gave to Natasha and Spike a BIG bag of rawhide treats to each one.... if you ask me... not fair! but I know I can't have much treats right now, so I am happy they got them! We all went to bed at 11 o'clock. Nobody was awake to receive Christmas! Yes, we are a boring family! It was a busy day but everything went well and we were happy being together.
Have a good night

Hi Lorenza
It looks like you had a very nice Christmas with your family with all that yummy food, toys, treats and very cute clothes. We can't wait to see you in them! Its a full winter wardrobe! Our Christmas was very quiet and we had to wait for such a long time for dad to get home but it was great to be altogether in the end.

Your Christmas day looks like it was perfect! We didn't get to go to the big people gathering because there were 15 of people. You were lucky to get to spend the whole day with your people!

We love all of your sweaters! You have such pretty clothes. And Santa brought you the treats you are allowed to eat!

It sounds like the perfect day!

I am so glad you had a nice Christmas. You are a very good girl to get all those presents. In Mexico doggies dress better I think. Here it's mostly nudity!

And like you said in your last post, getting cards and wishes from sweet pets all over the world (and their families) is amazing.

Stanley said...

Lorenza!
It sounds like a great day with your family. Does Natasha always let Spike lay down on top of her? She looks like she's trying to hide under a pillow there on the couch.

Goober love,
Stanley

Spencer said...

Wow, what a great spread! Looks like you had a great Christmas Lorenza!

Isabella said...

It looks like your mommy is a really great cook. You are so lucky! My mommy sets off the smoke alarm when she cooks. Sometimes I get to eat the food that she ruins, like the time I ate a pork roast that Mommy and Daddy said was yucky. I thought it was great! Things don't always work out that good, though. One time Mommy tried to make doggy biscuits for me. They were yucky biscuits!

I hope you have a great year with lots of yummy food and fun toys!
