Holiday cards

Hi everyone!  I'm just waiting here for Miss Feathers to deliver the mail.  She has had many deliveries lately with the holiday season.

"MAIL ARRIVING!" she announced.  "AJDIN, ARE YOU READY?"

"Yes!" I replied.  I wasn't going to get knocked over like last time.

WHOOSH!!!  In a split second, I was buried underneath a pile of holiday cards.

"Oh Ajdin!  I'm so sorry!" she said.


"At least they weren't packages," I said.

I dusted myself off and got up.  No harm done.  Let's get to these holiday cards!

The first one is a card from Droopy, Patch, and Spunky.  It's pawmade!

And then a lovely photo card from Little Fox!  Great photo!

Here is a card from my Aunt J!  I'm not sure I entirely agree with the card however... I am still a kid!  I hope to always be a kid!

Here is a card from stuffie friends down under - Benaud, Chloe, and Hicks!

"And this is a photo card from Fritzel Ran-SOMETHING-weiler," I said.  My German is not very good.

"Fritzel RanƟweiler," corrected Miss Feathers. "I know a little German... I was a pilot for Lufthoneysa."

Okay, up next is a card from Jerry and Ben!  The inside has some fun winter photos of them.

They also have a really cool address label which I would like to share with readers today.  Look at this close-up.

And here is an excellent handmade card from Beanie Mouse!  Beautifully made!

And that seems to be about it... oh wait!  There is a final envelope left.  It is addressed to Ooogie!

"Hey Ooogster," I said.  "You've got mail."


"Do you need help opening it?" I asked.

"Noooooo, thaaaaat'ssssss ooookaayyy.  I wiiiiilll oooopeeeen iiiiiit."

He read the card.

"It'ssssss froooom Saaaaandyyy.  Heeee sayssssss heeeee maaaddeee usss a Scraaaaable puuuuuuzzle."

The suspense was killing me.

Finally, Ooogie opened up the package and there were indeed many Scrabble letters inside!

"I wiiiill woooork ooooon thisss neeext yeeeear," said Ooogie.

Thank you beary much everyone for your cards and gifts!

(I'm a little behind but the results from the 2015 Ugly Sweater Contest will be up soon!)

"Come on, Master Oooda!" I said.  "Darth Tibbs is meeting us at the movie theater."

"Master Oooda?"

"Slooooooow I aaaaaaam," he said.

Then I had an idea.

We'll see you at the movie theater!  And remember...

Our Christmas tree

I was almost home with our Christmas tree.  I honked the horn.  *BEEP BEEP!!*

"Ajdin's back!"


"He got a tree!"

"Woof!  Woof!  Woof!"

I took the tree out of the car.

"Isn't it the most beautiful tree you have ever seen?" I asked.




"Well, it just needs a little TLC, that's all," said Uncle Tibbs.

So we fluffed out its branches.

"There, it looks more tree-like already," said Miss Feathers.


"Parker, you found some decorations!" I exclaimed.  "Good dog!"

So we decorated our little tree.

"Niiiiiice," said Ooogie.  It was looking pretty good.

"It looks terrific," said Uncle Tibbs, "but it feels like something is missing."

"We need to put the star at the top of tree," I said.  "But I can't reach it."

"I'll put it up there," said Miss Feathers.

She flew above the tree and put the star at the tippy top.

Then we all stepped back to admire our work.



"We love our Christmas tree!"

Christmas is about more than a tree or gifts, but it is nice to have some decorations up, isn't it?

How are you decorating for the holidays?

Searching for a tree

With my friends in need of some holiday spirit, I got in my car and drove around town looking for a Christmas tree.  Down the street, there was a vendor selling some trees.  I went to take a look.

I soon realized that they were all beary big trees.  They were bigger than me, bigger than my car, bigger than Uncle Tibbs, and even bigger than my mom.  They were also bigger than my pocketbook and what I could afford to buy.

Then I discovered a row of smaller Christmas trees, but these were still bigger than I was.  How would I ever get a Christmas tree of this size to fit in my car?

Disappointed, I was about to head home empty-pawed when I saw something in the corner of my eye.  I turned my head to take a better look.

There, cast off to the side by itself, was the most beautiful tree I had ever seen.

And it was also free.  What luck!

Excitedly, I put it on the hood of my car, but that made it difficult to see anything.

Then I put it on the back of my car but it fell off and rolled to the ground.

Finally, I just tucked it in the passenger seat next to me.  Then I drove home.

I hope my friends like this tree!
