The Second Annual Ornament Marathon, Day One

Last year, I presented the moms' 12 favorite ornaments for the twelve days of Christmas. We enjoyed it so much, we are going for every day between now and Christmas day. 25 days of ornaments - it's a big commitment - I hope I can pull it off! We just have so many ornaments!

We finally decorated the tree today, just in time for us to begin. The first ornament for this year is me!
My friend Melaney (dedicated Legacy Boxer Rescue volunteer) gave me this ornament, because it looks like me! It is new on the tree this year. A very handsome addition, I think. Thanks, Mel!

In other news, I got two more cards today!

The first one is from a big family of five small dogs! Heaven (I love little dogs, especially dachshunds)! I was very excited to see their picture.



It is from One Lonely Beagle and a Handful of Dachshunds. Thanks y'all! We love your card!

The other is from a very pretty girl named Randi the Lab/Newf. She looks sort of like Dakota. Well, more jowly, a little more grey, and she doesn't have little tiny baby ears like Dakota does. OK, she doesn't look like Dakota at all, but I like the card with her cute picture on it.



Dakota liked this card extra much. I think she must think Randi is her sister. She keeps smelling it and trying to bite it. She's a weird girl



Thanks for the card, Randi! Dakota sends kisses!

Hi Cubby & Dakota!
Guess what? I have a brother that lives south of me & his name is Dakota!

& my mom just gave me a honking mallard ducky last week & it looks just like Dakotas ducky! You'll have to check out my blog post from 11/24!

Can't wait to see your holiday card!

Love & Licks,
Randi

Randi is so cool. She's our friend. We got the card from those little dogs also. This card exchange is giving us a whole bunch of new friends which is nice.

We have a similar ornament, only there's a bulldog on ours (we couldn't find a frenchie).

This is our first time participating in the x0mas card exchange. ITs so exciting. I can't wait to send out all my cards.

Cubby - we love your ornament. All of ours are so boring. We are hoping the girl will actually put them on the tree this weekend.
