Greetings to all! It's me, Mags! My favorite day of the year came a little early, as Ragnar and I helped our mom pack up some special packages for friends and family. Here's a shot for you:
Sunday, December 25, 2022
From our house to yours, we all wish you a most blessed and merry Christmas!
When you're feeling cooperative ...
When you're about to make a break for it ...
When you're making plans with your bestest friend ...
When you're ready for a snooter smooch ...
And when you end up posing incognito by some of the Christmas decor ...
When you've been as absolutely good as a couple of Siberians can be ...
And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid. And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord. And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger. And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying, Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men. Luke 2:9-14And now ... for some Christmas quick takes. When you want to go into the kitchen to help with KP, but don't want to leave your tree ...
|"I'm so conflicted. Could you do the cheese in here?"|
|"Hey. Have a cool Yule!"|
|"I ... uh ... wait. Is that an animal cracker?"|
|"So when Santa comes ..."|
"We should wait for him right here, Mags!"
|"Did someone say 'mistletoe'?"|
|"The angel tree is over there by the fox quilt ..."|
|"This is my favorite - the Patriotic Tree! 🇺🇸"|
Merry Christmas to all!
Mags, Ragnar, and our mom and dad

Hi everybody! It's me, Ragnar. As Mags mentioned yesterday, we have a new tree. I LOVE this tree!
Lots of room for ornaments, lots of pretty lights, doesn't stick out into our traffic pattern for zoomies ... it's just perfect.
It's my new favorite thing! Mom doesn't quite know what to make of my infatuation, but I just love looking at it!
|"Hi, Mom. I'm just laying here by the tree like a good boy!"|
"You ARE a good boy!!!"
|"So peaceful! I love it!"|
"❤❤ Oh, Raggi!!! ❤❤"

Greetings to all! It's me, Mags. A couple years ago, the bigger of our Christmas trees bit the dust (I had nothing to do with it!). We had been making do with our smaller ones - but this year, Mom and Dad decided to spring for a new tree! Guess what went on the tree first?!? Or should I ask, "Who went on the tree first?!?"
Sock Monkey! I'm so glad he got to come out of hiding! Oh, and I know what you're thinking! "How are you and Ragnar going to resist temptation? How will Sock Monkey be safe up there!?!" I had to let Ragnar in on some Ao4 lore ... the story of the item formerly known as the Zim Detection Device ... then the Maggie Motion Monitor ...
... and now it is simply the Siberian Detector.
So ... anytime I might get "too close" to say ... Sock Monkey or one of these other old "friends" ...
... DING, DING, DING goes that bell! It also protects fragile new friends, like this guy our Aunt Janet sent:
How cool is that?!?!
So ... Raggi and I really like the new tree. In fact, we REALLY love it; Ragnar especially, for some reason. We were more than happy to pose by it:
|"I see you up there!!!"|
"Oh. Uh ... hi, Mags."
|"Yeah, yeah, Mom. 'Every time a bell rings, a Siberian is too close to the tree.' As if I need that ..."|
"Is that a line from 'It's a Wonderful Siberian'?"
|"Do you think we're up high enough?"|
"Oh, I hope so!"
|A porcelain box Sock Monkey!!!|
We hope you're enjoying the Christmas holidays so far --- we sure are!

Greetings to all! It's me, Mags. There we were, out on our morning walk, when I had a brilliant idea!

From our house to yours ...
Did you leave your sabots by the fireplace last night?!?
|"Bonne fête de Saint Nicolas!"|
"Yeah. What Mags said!"
Hope everyone's staying off the "Naughty List"!!! Mags and Ragnar PS: Please click here to read more about Saint Nicolas Day!

Hi everybody! It's me, Ragnar. Mags and I have a favorite new show, only Mom says it's not really new -- just new to me and Mags. It's called "Perry Mason" and it's a great detective/lawyer show!
Thursday, December 01, 2022
Greetings to all! It's me, Mags. Ragnar and I helped Mom deck the halls yesterday - everybody's getting in the Christmas spirit around here!
Are all of you helping, too?
|"Hey, it's me! Sock Monkey! Free at last!!! Hey, Maggie? You aren't going to--"|
"Quiet, Sock Monkey! I'd hate to see Mom have to put you in Witness Protection again."
"How come I don't get to hold Sock Monkey?"
"Everybody say, 'Ho ho ho!'"

Greetings to all! It's me, Mags! We've already had lots of firsts this season - frost, hard freeze, SNOW, and today ... we got to go the The Top Of The World!!!We got to go through the woods to get there:
|"Is this great or WHAT, Mags?!?!"|
"The BEST, Raggi!!!"
|Ragnar and me, enjoying the view|
PS: From KZK: Many thanks to all of you who have asked after us! My mom passed away and we needed some time to regroup. ❤️💜💙

Hi everybody! It's me, Ragnar. Mags and I took our mom and dad on a nice walk this morning. We got to go down Labby Road -- you know, where lots of our Labrador friends live - and Mom spotted some sunflowers at the end of the trail. She wanted us to pose in front of them, of course.
Mags faced Mom for a split second while I licked my lips in anticipation of a COOKIE, then ...
At least we were both smiling -- right?!? Mags says timing is everything.
I hope all of you had a great Labra Day weekend!
"Are any of the Labs watching, Ragnar?"
"Goldie's out ... and that really tall puppy who lives with Blondie."
|"Oh, c'mon, you two! Please?!? I have COOKIES!!!"|
"I'll smile, but -- oh, hey, Goldie! Hope you and your pack had a nice Labra Day weekend!"
"Did you say COOKIES?!??"
|"That was -- no, wait! Mags?!? I missed it!"|
"Sorry, Mom. Bad timing."

Greetings to all! It's me, Mags. Happy Labor Day to all.

Hi everybody! It's me, Ragnar. If our dad doesn't push his chair in after he's been at the table, Mags and I usually race to be the first one there before Dad sits down again.
Friday, September 02, 2022
Greetings to all! It's me, Mags. We were going to share just one shot of us posing on our walk this morning, but Mom said we did SUCH a great job, and took so many, that I thought I'd share a bunch! Let's take a look!
These first two are up at the top of our first big hill, with a gorgeous sunrise in the background:
PS: There were cookies involved. Trust me.

Greetings to all! It's me, Mags. I'm just having a little training session here in the living room with Ragnar. About what, you might wonder? Refrigerators! You see, we just had to replace ours. The one that just went kaput had the ice and water dispenser on the inside - basically because one of our great sisters (Ammy!) knew how to help herself. What a smart, smart girl! So I was filling Ragnar in on what I learned through the Ao4 chronicles ...
Due to supply chain issues, Mom and Dad chose the only fridge that would fit and that they wouldn't have to wait several months for. Here she is:
Yep. It just HAPPENS to have a very accessible ice and water dispenser. It's only a matter of time.
|"And that's how she did it, Raggi!"|
"So wait ... all she had to do ..."
|"This is going to be so fun!"|
"We'll have this figured out in no time!"

Greetings to all! It's me, Mags. I don't know what all this talk was yesterday about "someone" being all jazzed up. Usually when Mom says that, she means me, but I'm thinking she MUST have meant Ragnar. I mean, look at how sweet I am!
Monday, August 29, 2022
Hi everybody! It's me, Ragnar. Over here.
Why? Well, as Mom likes to say, "Someone is a bit jazzed up." I think she might mean ...
|"Hi. I'm here in one of my auxiliary dens."|
I thought jazz was supposed to be sort of mellow. Maybe that's a different kind of jazz.
