My first cards!

Thanks King King and Maggie and Mitch!
I was thinking that maybe I had to wait a long time until I get my Christmas Cards like the last year but to my suprise I got your cards very soon!

These ones are first....

(Wearing the same sweater two days in a row??? Hmmm.....)

Supervising the connections...

Lights and.... nothing else!

Yesterday, after we all had our lunch, my grandma and my mom decided to start putting the Christmas tree up. Everything was going well. They put the lights, turned them on and they were working. Then 2 minutes later, the lights turned off. They tried to fix them but.... no luck! My mom was so frustrated that she told my grandma that it was better to go to the store and get new ones. We had to go to 3 different stores because there were no lights in the first two. Finally we came home and started again. Then, my grandma went to the closet to look for the ornaments and she could not find the box! So, we had to stop. Today my grandma found the box in another room, but she has lots of things to do these days so I guess we will have to wait until next weekend to finish.

Have a good night

Oh Lorenza sweetie, don't worry. When everything gets organized, you're going to have the most beautiful Christmas tree!

It's so nice to get actual Christmas cards. We're just doing ecards because Mama is so busy (lazy) ...

And no, I didn't get Best in Show -the four ribbons were from three different shows, all held over the weekend. But maybe one day ....

Thanks for the Birthday wishes Lorenza! Your tree is very pretty, you all did a nice job, we were supposed to do our tree this weekend and they put it off (probably to prepare for my birthday)

Noah the Airedale said...

Well guess what, we're not putting our tree up at all this year. My pinkies are lacking the Christmas spirit this year.....naughty naughty.
Your tree is going to look great when it's finished.
Oh we got your card today!!!

Bernard Hinault Lilje said...

My mom is soooooo impressed with how even the lights are dispersed on the tree....she can never get it right... so this year the tree is prelit too!!

Al final os ha quedado bien lindo el árbol de navidad,mami ayer mismo trajo uno muy raro que es de plástico y que tienen lucecitas ya incorporadas (el tete ya se lo miró como si fuera un juguete nuevo jiji).
El jersei te queda muy bien, tu mami es una artista guau guau!

Snowball said...

I hope your Christmas will not be extended for too long like last year. LOL.

Your Christmas tree looks beautiful even without the ornaments.

Katie and Gizmo said...

Hi Lorenza,

I like your sweater and your cards.
Can't wait to see the Christmas Tree all finished.

It looks like a really big one unlike ours.


Amber-Mae said...

That's great! Yeah I noticed all the cards reach you very very late after Christmas. I wonder why? Can't the post people go any faster? What are they doing? Celebrating X'mas 1st? BOL! Well, I hope this year will be a faster year for you. You have a very nice big tree!

Cards!!! Christmas is here for sure!

Your tree looks very pretty with the lights on it. We have a tree that has the lights already on it, so we don't have to mess with putting on lights. Motch has very little patience, so that helps.

Mack said...

We just know your Christmas tree will be beautiful! (like you!)

Dewey Dewster said...

Your tree looks nice even if it is not done yet.
And your mom sure did a great job on your sweater! It is very pretty, and a nice colour on you.

Toffee said...

Your tree looks bootiful!

I think it is totally okay to wear your new sweater two days in a row!

Too Cute Pugs said...

What wonderful cards!

Oooh, and Christmas tree lights are the worst for lasting very long. You did the right thing going to get new ones rather than trying to figure out the old ones.

We're going to chop down our tree today! We can't wait!

Kodak the Eskie said...

That's great that you are already getting your Christmas cards. Your tree looks great. My mommy isn't in the mood yet to start decorating.

Hugs, Kodak

Copito said...

Lenny said...

Your new sweater, and the Christmas tree, are really pretty!

I hope the knitting helped your mom with stress relief, but then she had the problems shopping! I hope good things are coming her way. :)

Your friend, Lenny

P.S. I got your card already! You look beautiful in the picture!

Anonymous said...

Nice cards! It's so great to get mail, especially nice Christmas card mail. Your Christmas tree is off to a great start XOXO Peanut

Lady Kaos said...

We had some issues with lights too, but Mom hugged them and they all worked! The first bunch Dad had handed her and she held them in her arms for awhile and then after the "hug" they worked fine. Then we had some more that weren't working right so as a joke Mom hugged them and they worked!! We have some more that quit working last night so Dad is going to go get them off the house so Mom can hug them and get them working again. It's funny and creepy at the same time!!!!

Kathryn and Ari said...

Wow. Christmas cards AND a christmas tree. We better get busy if we're going to catch up!

PS- Love the snuggly sweater. It looks so soft and warm.

My Two Best Friends said...
