Jazzi's Christmas Gift Exchange

Thank you Jazzi, for doing such a wonderful job at organizing the awesome Christmas gift exchange that Gracie was a part of.  

Thanks also to Minnie for the fantastic box of goodies Gracie got in the mail.  She loved everything!!  How do I know, you ask??  Well, I just happened to peek into her diary today, and this is what I found.

Dear Diary,  

Remember the box that came in the mail last week with my name on it? 

Well, it was filled with goodies just for me!!!  
Mom had signed me up for Jazzi's Christmas gift exchange and my new friend Minnie had my name and sent me a whole box of goodies!

I was sooooo excited!

I couldn't wait to see what was in the pretty red bag.  I could smell it and it smelled like...

Something good...

Ha!  It was a toy!!  I had to beg, 'Let me have it Dad.  C'mon, I'm not fooling around here.  That's my toy...  Minnie sent it to me...'

I loved the treats.

And the little ball. 

Boy, there sure was a lot of neat stuff packed in that box for lil-ol'-me!
The ones that say sojos on the box are really, really good.  Mom gives me one every morning after I go out to potty.

I love my Christmas Reindeer.  She's so pretty and she squeaks every time I sink my teeth into her belly.

They need not even try to get this one off of me... 

Now, my Mom spent a lot of money trying to get these pesky critters off of me during the summer. She's given me permission to go ahead and play with this one.  She confuses me.

So now I don't have fleas any more but I have one huge tick.  And I plan on ripping it's guts out just as soon as my Mom's back is turned.  

I love my Christmas gifts.
