Christmas is Coming

Yesterday we started to get the house ready for Christmas and our Christmas owl came out again :-)

Leigh's brother and nephew had been visiting and Trilby thought she'd sniff out Euan's rucksack in case he had treats hidden there. He didn't :-(

Aoife knew the best place to look for treats is under the Christmas tree but nothing there either yet.

Then the dreaded Christmas hats - Crybbe tried to keep his foot on this one but still had to have one photo with it on his head!

and Trilby got caught while she was taking a power nap:

 Here's a little close up of the tree - it looks better when it's lit at night but there are lots of toys and baubles on it and maybe nearer Christmas some tasty treats :-)

After a long evening working on Christmassy decorations I was getting pretty tired so Trilby gave me a wash:

and then we both fell asleep:

But before I go I would like to say a huge thank you to sweet Cotton  of Cotton's Candy for giving us this award. Thank you Cotton from us all here in the Doghouse :-) It is greatly appreciated!


  1. Hey guys! You'd never guess what came in the mail today! We got your pretty card. I just love it. I even showed it to my niece and we have a new pronunciation for Aiofe's name.... A-Yo!-Fee.

    I love the Christmas atmosphere... I bet Magic hates wearing that garland/pink boa. LOL.

    Huggies and Cheese,


  2. Hey I love your Christmas owl! Your decorations and tree look beautiful. Crybbe looks like a cartoon character in that Santa hat. lol What a precious picture of Trilby and you snoozing. Congrats on your award! :)

  3. Your Christmas owl is really lovely. Crybbe's hat suits him even though he is wearing it under protest :-) Not long now then there'll be lots of tasty treats.

  4. Congrats on your award! We've never seen a Christmas Owl before... The ONLY blot on Christmas is the dreaded Santa hat...or antlers....or elf hat...Sheesh!

    Your card arrived yesterday....we are WAY ahead of HER! Thanks.

    XXXOOO Daisy, Bella & Roxy

  5. Hey, it's funny when Xmas starts coming out of the shed and into the house! I got wrapped in tinsel (again :-( ) Nice to hear you have visitors already.... we're getting ready for our big Xmas bash on the 22nd..... menu and fridge cleaning..... house primping etc etc. It's exhausting!

  6. Your owl looks cool :D
    Ya'll look adorable in your hats :)
    Glad you like the award, buddy, you deserve it

  7. Lovely Owl, we have been too busy recently, haven't caught up with everything yet, and haven't put up a single decoration yet, tutut, we need to do it tomorrow methinks otherwise we'll miss it! xx

  8. I have been subjected to the awful reindeer ears already this year!
