Who We Are

Christmas Eve!

Greetings to all!  It's me, Maggie - and it's Christmas Eve Day!  You know what that means, right? Right. Time for one final plea to Santa Claus.

Cam and I have been SO good!  We help around the house, we make sure Mom and Dad get plenty of exercise, and we bring smiles to faces all OVER the place!

"I can't even remember the last time the Maggie Motion Monitor went off!"

Look!  I'll share one of those Santa hats with Cammie!

"I'd even be happy to share BOTH of them with her!"
"No... you've done more than enough already.  Seriously.  But thank you."

See how polite we are?  We try to remember our manners - especially to say "thank you"!  For instance ... we received this package in the mail just the other day!

"Really, Mom?  It's for us?"
"And we can open it now?"

How exciting!

"Oooh!  That stamp reads 'Royal Mail'!  I know who this is from!!!"
"I smell the faintest hint of Puppicinio ..."

It was from our dear friend in the UK - Princess Leah!!!  She sent us a beautiful card in with the gifts.  Mom asked us to pose with it.  What with Leah being a princess and all, I thought she deserved a throne.  I jumped up onto the big ottoman and brought her with me!

"Thank you so much, Princess Leah!"
"And Merry Christmas to you and your wonderful family!"

Let's zoom in:

Me and Princess Leah!  Isn't she beautiful?  So regal!

Yep.  Just hopped up there to make her feel at home.  You know, a throne for a princess and all that.

Oh.  Oh, so Mom pointed out that Leah was wearing a Santa hat in her photo and that if I really wanted to bond with her ...

"Only for you, Princess!  Ho ho ho!!"

Anyway, as you might know, I love watching the TV show "Death in Paradise" - and Princess Leah's mum worked on the show!  She sent us a some "Death in Paradise" themed gifts - a jigsaw puzzle (Mom loves doing those!), a CD of the cool music, and a set of DVDs from the latest season!  Thank you SO much, Princess Leah and your mom!  I can't wait to get caught up with the show!  (An update:  Techno-dad was able to rip the DVDs to his computer, move them to a flash drive, then put them in iTunes; we'll be able to watch that on the TV.  Somehow.  I have no idea.  It's magic.  But it WORKS!!!)

So ... Santa?!?  Really.  Cam and I have been good - plain and simple.  Trust me.  I'm a Siberian Husky!  See you tonight?!?!

"C'mon, Cam!  Santa won't mind a round of Crazed River Otter Games!"
"Maybe just a short round ..."

Yours sincerely,
Margaret Thatcher
