Cubbie, Teddy, and I went to Oelwein to spend Christmas with the family. As usual, the boys were spoiled with lots of attention from my parents and my brothers.
The boys must have made Santa’s “nice list” this year because they sure got a lot of presents for Christmas! That’s despite Cubbie getting into one of my mom’s presents early and taking a ball off of a Santa hat wine bottle cover.
We celebrate and open presents each year on Christmas Eve. We eat, go to church, drive around and look at lights, and then open presents.
We thought we’d give the boys their presents first so they’d be distracted with their new toys. The distraction didn’t last long. Cubbie was a little too helpful when it came to unwrapping other people’s gifts.
Cubbie and Teddy got a new carrying case for their toys, several new toys, a dog trick book, a new dog bed, and a new blanket.
The dog bed and blanket were huge hits. Teddy was especially fond of the dog bed, and Cubbie immediately cuddled up under the fleece, doggy blanket.
It didn’t take long before both were exhausted and fell asleep. One in the dog bed, and one under the blanket.
Each year we get my mom a gift from the boys. This year we made her a magnet for the fridge that’s a collage of a bunch of our photos. We also got her a t-shirt that says “Ask me about my Granddog.”
As you can see, the boys had a great Christmas this year. It was so much fun, they slept through most of Christmas Day!
