Here's a look at some of the animal Christmas ornaments on my tree. I have many more pet ornaments than the two below, and shared some of them in a post last year. The one on the left is a hand-painted kitten by my mother. The one on the right is a little Beagle puppy ornament.
I mentioned that I've been busy shopping above. Online shopping included. This is the first year I've really gotten into shopping for things on the internet. Here's some of the stuff I've gotten so far.
First up, I ordered this cute Shetland Sheepdog Christmas ornament from For Love of a Dog Jewelry. It's a gift for my grandparents, because they have a Sheltie that looks just like the ornament. You might remember Bear, because he was recently featured on the blog.
I also bought a copy of Tales of a French Scent Hound written by our friend Emma from My GBGV Life. I bought Emma's book as a gift to my 9 year old daughter because she loves to read and she loves animals.
I've also been receiving some nice things from friends over this holiday season. I always love getting special stuff in the mail. It makes me all warm and tingly inside and it's very exciting!
I won this Shelter Cat Doll from my friend Texas the cat's blog who also now lives in Austin, TX like me! The Shelter Cat Doll is a Dream Pillow and smells really nice. My baby daughter loves it!
Shiner got this nice Christmas card with Santa and his reindeer from her pal @NancyCakeFace on Twitter.
And I got this nice holiday card from my friend Christina from the blog Peace, Love, & Whiskers.
And our friends Lee and Phod sent us a nice email holiday card. I'm thinking this is what I'm going to have to do this year.
I've saved the most exciting thing for last. I ordered Nibblet a new cage from Petco! The cage is a little over 4 feet tall and she has way more room to run around. Her last cage was super small. So I'm really excited to be able to get her a nice new castle to play in.
Now, I've been thinking that perhaps Nibblet has room for a friend in her new castle. Who knows? We'll see...
Has the holiday season been keeping you busy?
