Twas the first day of December...

OK the idea was to make some amazing poem to show ya'll my mad skillz at writing...

IT FAILED..miserably...so sorry...

We decorated the house for Christmas...getting in the spirit and I have started my "please cut off my ears and rip my eyes out with a spoon" never ending Christmas music celebration. I love Christmas...let me say this again. I LOVE CHRISTMAS. And Andy...well he loves it to, but apparently not NEARLY as much as I do...so sad for him really!

So we put up the stockings...yes there is one for all the house dogs...and the rabbit..did you know we had a rabbit? Yep--his name is Harley :) We have other critters...but really...to talk about everyone...naw :) Life needs some secrets! HA! Mainly the pictures in the blog are of the animals that LIKE their pictures taken :) Those that look beat or run away...well I just don't bother.

And of course a tree :) I would have 5 trees if Andy would let me...but that whole marriage/compromise/don't let yourself look ANY crazier than you are already thing...sigh...so our ONE tree...


Ain't she PERTY??

And this ball off the tree?? Yeah...that was EVIL...Errr..I mean Even...

We added Even and Lynn to the stocking list this year :)MARK MY WORDS...there WILL BE NO ADDITIONS TO OUR HOUSE FOR MANY MANY MORE YEARS...YA HERE??? So here is everyone's stockings :)


And of course WE have to have stockings...ya know, the HUMANS in the house...




Yes Gator's is different, thanks for pointing this out...don't you think I notice it EVERY SINGLE CHRISTMAS...YEAH...every year...Thanks. Walmart was out of the other ones...SHUT UP.

Where's my stocking!?!??!
You don't get one Vittles...YOU NEED TO FIND A HOME...K?? Thanks.

And of COURSE it isn't Christmas until you put little reindeer antlers on your dogs so they sit REALLY STILL and their eyes bug out as if you were killing them...
Thanks Zip and Even...good times, good times :)

In addition to all THOSE fun traditions...every year I have to figure out how to get a picture of my EVER growing pack of dogs...and I have gotten to the point (or maybe the number) of dogs where something all cutesy and sweet is out...just a picture of the seven critters that will TOLERATE the camera is good enough. Notice I said TOLERATE. Ace HATES photos...and Klink...well she TOLERATES it. Now the others think it rocks...thank doG.

So I had THE PERFECT picture all set up...dogs were PERFECT, lighting was PERFECT...and then Crackers let a loud one, PFFFFRRRTTT!!! All the dogs are like WTF was that!?!??!? Looking in all directions (INCLUDING CRACKERS...UM HELLO!?!?!?) and of course getting up...sigh...damn terriers!

So...this is as good as it gets...
Merry Super Early Christmas from the Full Tilt Crew!

No one has stockings and the tree is iffy this year with puppies in the house an all.
