We had ourselves a great Christmas Day! Santypaws left treats for everyone.

Mike: I had so much fun unwrapping presents.

After that, our very favorite time, Christmas dinner with TURKEY!  This made all of us happy!

Mike:   Tallson gave me some scritchees.......I love having attention, in fact I would like to have ALL the attention!  This makes me happy.

Moe:  My version of happiness is having some turkey, then stretching out on the clothes dryer when it is running - it is SO warm!!

Bono:  While Moe is snoozing, I'm watching the washer drain.  I don't know why, but I find rushing water so much fun to watch - it makes me happy!

Our hope is that everyone had a happy Christmas and was able to share it with their loved ones.

Happy Birthday to TallSon

Our mombean and dadbean's younger son, the one we call TallSon has a birthday today!  He was born on the 21st, the Winter Solstice, 26 yrs. ago. 

Happy Birthday, TallSon!!   Even though you don't live here anymore, I -  Moe  - remembers when you encouraged mombean to adopt me exactly 10 years ago.  I was the first cat in the family.  Then my sisfur, Mindy, came to live here too.  We miss you, but we are glad you are happy and doing well.

TallSon is finishing up courses in digital animation, here is his demo reel:

Countdown - Fourth Week of Advent

Our people seem to be busy all of the time lately.  It is hard for us to snoopervise when they won't stay in one place long enough for us to approve of all that happens.

Mombean seems to be making out lots of lists, then she loses them.  There is no hope with that.  We heard her on the phone  inviting a bunch of relatives to dinner on Friday.  Well anything involving food isn't such a bad idea.   We bet some of those extended family members are going to be over whelmed with our cuteness and give us lots a treats.  This could work out nicely.  I think I will sleep on this idea a bit more.

Meanwhile here is photo of grandbean's cross stitch birds

A closeup of this photo show the elves that
Georgia and Tillie's mom made.

Friday Night

Our Christmas tree is up and we can relax.   Since this morning some wall paint got applied, it dried, and the tree got put up. 

Bono:  I am the Christmas tree inspector.   I watched from a comfortable place while things were happening!

Mindy:  I made sure our tree is nice and straight!

Then I rolled on the carpet, to view it from another angle.

Cookie:  Mindy, I am watching you.  That looks like fun, but I am too comfortable to get out of this chair

Moe:  I found a quiet place to hang out.  Now I can have a long nap.

Mike:  I can't find a quiet place Moe, can I share come of your space?

We have to be careful, see those frosty snowmen?  They are made of breakable glass. That is why they are placed away up high.  Dadbean made those eons ago. 

Another thing, our coldbox has more goodies like cream cheese......we will definitely have to help mombean with her Christmas baking.

Have a great weekend everyone!!  Stay warm.  Our run of mild weather is coming to an end.

Busy Weekend

We kitties are not the busy ones, but we are keeping an eye on all activities!  Sometimes a great opportunity comes along if we are vigilant and if we are in the kitchen at the right time.

A delicious dessert called Pavlova is something that gets made in our kitchen around the Christmas season.


This is what got made in our kitchen!!  Yum, yum.  We get to lick the beaters afterwards

Mindy:  I love whipped cream

Moe:  Me too!

Moe, Cookie and Mike - sharing in the whipped cream goodness!

After that nothing very interesting happened.  Mombean is fixing this wall in the living room after an old chimney got removed - now how is Santa going to get in here?

And dadbean was using this to fix some pipes in our cellar.  We are not allowed to go there, but it would be fun the explore all the hidey places - when that torch is shut off!  Mombean would like our water back on again soon!

We hope everyone is having a great weekend, perhaps even a busy one!!

Finally Friday

We've been checking a few blogs and realize it is time to put up our fake tree for Christmas.  We used to have a 'real' tree.  It was lots of fun.  There was always flavored water underneath it to drink and the branches smelled like the outdoors.  We used to taste those branches, to make sure our tree was nice and fresh.  The new tree is not as much fun, though.  The fun is in watching our people try and remember how it all goes together, always a struggle, hee, hee.






Have a GREAT weekend everyone!
