On Christmas Eve we went up to our human sister's house to spend Christmas. Snow started to fall which is different for this part of Texas and on Christmas Eve, no less. It was beautiful!

Our little human nephew Rhett, didn't know quite what to think of it so he closed his eyes. Isn't he adorable?
Then we came inside to get warm. Rhett said in his own little language, Riley and Star let's play! He's eighteen months old and wears us out but we love him!
So Star said, No thanks, I'm out of here!
Hmmm, where did that Riley go?
Riley, I see you!

Here I come!
After I got away, I slipped into the other room and decided to have some fun of my own. So, I got into two gift bags and shred the tissue all to pieces! Well, that went over like a lead balloon! I don't understand humans. They encourage us to tear open our pressies and think it's cute but if it's not our pressie, then they get mad. I'm confused, a pressie is a pressie and I don't know how to read name tags! It was as if I was the Grinch That Stole Christmas!

Mommy being so used to taking pictures of us for our blog, whether we're good or bad, told daddy to grab his camera which he did and then we were all in trouble. Sorry Mommy.
To make matters worse, me and Star barked whenever we got the chance because we were being ignored and that got on everybuddy's nerves!

Then one of our relatives was carving the duck when a piece of meat fell into the cuff of his pants. Daddy could tell that he was really starting to get annoyed with me cause I kept licking his leg. Then daddy picked me up and said, boy you are pushing your luck! Although, he really wanted to take a picture of it but was afraid of pushing his!

And baby Harper was having so much fun watching all this, she just sat there and clapped while the rest of the family just ignored us. She's the sweetest little baby we know.
All of a sudden, Rhett spotted us and I ran for the hills!
Another one of our relatives warned us right up front that she doesn't like dogs. Mommy was a nervous wreck all day trying to keep us away from her which was useless since we refuse to be ignored.

Mommy told us not to take it personally, some people just don't like dogs. Now that's different! Are you kidding me? Hey, we're Celebrities and we won the Mirror Ball Trophey! That lady should be begging us for our autographs! If she thinks she's riding in our limousine, she better think again! Whew! I feel better now. Other then that, she was a pretty nice lady.

Meanwhile, Rhett started to chase Star and she got so nervous that she ran clear across the room and jumped on the woman's lap who then jumped up and yelled get off of me! Mommy picked Star up and said, it's okay honey, don't be scared.
Daddy and mommy decided that we had worn out our welcome so we better hit the road. When we all got in our car, mommy said, "now that was a Christmas different" and she and daddy cracked up! But me and Star didn't think it was very funny at all and besides, we were so exhausted from all the activity, we slept all the way home.

Our house looked so good to us when we got there and mommy got a gift bag, filled it with bright red tissue, set it on the floor and said, Merry Christmas kids! Maybe she's a bad mommy for doing that but she understands that to little dogs like us, tissue is like catnip to a cat.

All and all, it was a wonderful Christmas and we really did have a great time with all the relatives especially Rhett and Harper, but we told mommy that next year we would like to have our own Christmas party with lots of doggies there where we can run, tear up tissue paper and bark all we want to, but mostly just be ourselves! We'll see, she said.

We hope all our furry friends had a very Merry Christmas and didn't get into trouble like we did.

Happy New Year!
Riley and Star.

Yah I know about little kids. Our house used to be quiet until a yr ago, when our little munchkins moved in with us, They wore me out at first, but I got used to it and now it is fine so I understand how you two were so tired.
Sounds like a very nice Christmas anyways

Sorry you had to have your Christmas with non-dog lovin' 2 leggers. We know you made it much more excitin' with your presence. Tissue is a great ball of fun and why it's ok one time to shred and not the next, i'll never know!

Glad you are back in your lovin' domain!

Rhett and Harper are adorable. You two must be great doggies to be such good friends with the little two leggers. Star did the right thing by moving away when she got scared! Marge has her reservations about them, especially when they start screaming loudly!

Those bipeds will wear you out faster than anything on earth. Oh, but they do like to drop goodies on the floor for us. The crazy old bat says that people who don't like dogs should stay home. Thanks for sharing your day with us.

Rhett and Harper are super adorable, may I wet lick her rosy cheeks?
I can't believe there was a hooman who does not like cute doggies, especially us, sigh!

May it be the start to a pawsome new year.

Stephanie, Riley and Star and of course your Dad, sis and her family and Jason and Haruka,
We wish you all a very happy and healthy 2010!!! It has been such a pleasure getting to know you all. Since we met Jason and Haruka we feel connected. If you two lovely pups and Mom and Dad get to NC in 2010 maybe we can meet somewhere and say Howdy. Well at least mom and dad will I (madi) don't leave the house but they will have my scent with them. Talk to you in the new year.
