Hope this holiday season finds you done with your shopping, done with the wrapping, and able to kick back with your favorite Christmas movie (Scrooge
, in my case) and favorite Christmas beverage (tip: a margarita with a little Chambord takes on a nice pink tint, close enough to call "Christmasy red"!)
Abby is defiinitely ready for the holiday. Here she is, dreaming of flying with Santa and his reindeer.
|"I could be Vixen..."|
|That holiday cheer don't spread itself. Exhausting.|
This afternoon we went to visit our 86-year-old friend, Mazli, and delivery her Christmas present (which of course was Abby-related. She got the Tripawd Heroes
book, which has 2 full pages of Abbyness!). Abby wore her antlers, which were quite a hit, as you may imagine. When we got home she was exhausted. It takes a lot out of a girl, spreading all that holiday cheer. (Mazli's present for Abby hadn't arrived yet so we'll have to wait until after Christmas to get that.)
It's just as well that Mazli's present wasn't there because Abby has been quite spoiled lately with gifts. First, she got a dragon from her aunt:
|Because every princess needs a dragon!|
|Removing a limb...|
she got a squeaky ball and
a Sock Monkey Monkeybutt
from some very nice friends via the Tripawds
"Angel Exchange." Sadly, tripawd Daisy recently earned her angel wings, so her pawrents were nice enough to offer up her old harnesses. They sent us one - along with these very unexpected but very-much-appreciated presents! (The harness has a little handle on the back - I think it will come in handy if Abby gets really tired at the beach and needs some help.)
Of course there are more presents for her under the tree, so she's going to be even more spoiled by the time the week is out.
As for us, we have our gift - we are just happy our girl is with us this Christmas!
Merry Christmas from Abby and us to you and yours. Hope you spend your holidays surrounded by friends and family!
