Thought for the day …..

Good Afternoon and today is Saturday the 26th day of December, 2015.

Boxing Day here in Canada.

Lots of folks are likely out and about shopping looking for deals.

Spending Christmas money and gift cards.

My kids dropped me and Mr. Alvin off just a little while ago.

They have some shopping to do.

We had an awesome Christmas….

So nice to spend Christmas with my kids in their new house.

Mr. Alvin was not quite as pleased with his new surroundings as his Momma.

He did finally go upstairs and both nights he really did not sleep.

The first night …. Christmas Eve we slept upstairs in the bonus room.

They have an open railing at the top of the stairs and we think it freaks him out.

My daughter put these mats/runners on the steps hoping that the puppies will go up and down.

They would not go up before as the steps were slippery (laminate).

Mr. Alvin did master the stairs which was good.

He would stand at the bottom whining before the mats.


Last night we slept in the living room as I thought he might settle down better.

But really not much difference.

He will definitely sleep well tonight.


We had an awesome Christmas and now back home.

I hope that you all had an awesome Christmas.

Special Hello to: my family ……

Always, Carol and Alvin


Thought for the day….

Merry Christmas Everyone ….. Welcome to Christmas Day …. Tuesday, December 25th, 2012.

I hope that you are having a wonderful Christmas Day.

We, (my daughter, son-in-law and all the puppies) opened our Christmas gifts last night.

We had appetizers for suppers and then watched the movie “FRED CLAUS” and about 9:30 p.m. the gift opening started.

Of course, the puppies went first so that would have their treats.

It took us almost two hours ….. we like to start with our stockings and each person opens a gift … one at a time.

So it means more to stop and see what everyone gets and admire the thoughtfulness.

I was especially spoiled this year ….. I got one kick butt snow shovel, the Blake Shelton Christmas CD, gifts cards, the new JK Rowling book, magazines, socks, tops, scratch tickets, photo frame and lots more.

I have to sit down and go through my bag of things so that I remember what I got.

Everyone was spoiled and we are truly grateful for each gift.

I hope that everyone is having fun today.

My daughter thought it was warm out when she went out to pick up the “poop” from our four puppies……. ooo

So I checked the weather channel to see it is – 23 celsius …… so not really warm but no wind so that is good.

Well I better rejoin the Christmas festivities.

I must make a few phone calls to see how the rest of my family is doing.

I have two of the four puppies up beside me in the office.

Alvin is always close by ……. so cute.

Merry Christmas one and all.

Enjoy your day.

Catch you all later.

Special Hello to: all my family and friends near and far….. I love you all.


Always, Carol and Alvin …….   HO HO HO HO   ……
