A Pretty Chaotic Day

Dear Diary,

Christmas day was just what I suspected.  First came the antlers.  Then came the Christmas sweater.   I was appalled.

The Cupcake and Room Runner arrived at about 1 PM.  Then the chaos began.

The Cupcake said that Santa got her just what she wanted, as she finished tearing open the last of her presents...  a Bouncing Baby Babbles.  I'm hoping she'll lay it somewhere and forget about it so I can chew on it's foot.

She also got a trunk full of different dress-up stuff.  Mom said she was a princess.  Whatever that is.

The Room Runner was wearing a pair of cowboy boots that I was a little leery of.  One kick from them and I'd be down for the count.  When he started chasing me I ran to Mom and she saved me.

The Cupcake - turned Princess scuffed around the house in her new robe carrying a baby.  No worries with her...

They all seemed to migrate to the village where Dad played train with them for the longest time.  

The Princess started going a little ballistics on us and began firing the Room Runners gun randomly at everyone in the room....  so unlike my Rissie...  I guess the temptation was too much.

All the peoples got together for a picture and Mom insisted that I smile.  Honestly, the lady's nuts.

Wearing the sweater was tolerable since I did get a pretty neat Christmas stocking in return...

Inside was a cow that squeaks.  It must be made of some pretty good stuff, cause I've only been able to chew off the ears and one leg.  I'm no quitter though.  The heart (squeaker) is coming out!!!

All in all, a pretty chaotic day.

After hours of play, the Room Runner and Princess finally went home.  But they took Mom with them... saying something about stopping for Chinese.

They didn't bother to ask me if I was interested in joining them.  And after I put up with their shenanigans all day.

Oh well, the day's over now.  And I need to rest.  

Goodnight.  Gracie.


  1. Gracie,you are adorable! It looks like a good time was had by all! Do you have an outfit for New Years Eve too?

  2. Love your sweater Gracie! It really looked like it was a fun day for all of you!

  3. Oh Gracie, you are sooo adorable!... and how precious you look in your new sweater, and antlers too!... sounds like you had a very exciting and merry Christmas... so happy Santa Dog brought you lots of goodies... love you!... xoxo Julie Marie

  4. That was tooooo cute! My cats have got to develop some talent because they have yet to blog. Gracie, you are a better dog than the one my mother-in-law had 15 years ago. Buddy would not tolerate extended family on his turf. He would start to nip anyone who came too close. My M-O-L would say, "You know it's his house. Don't get too close to him!" I'm glad you have a better Christmas spirit.

  5. Gracie, you are cute as can be. I think Christmas exhausted you! Love all the photos of Christmas festivities. I remember having little high heels like Cupcake has. Hope you all get some rest today!

  6. Think of it this way, Gracie, it's a whole nother year before you have to go through that again. Next year the cupcake and room runner will be older and the boots will be outgrown! Of course your sweater will probably still fit....

    It looks like you had a nice bunch of humans, to visit with! Sorry that you didn't get Chinese!

  7. What a lovely day you all had!! thanks so much for sharing!! that last pic of you though... it's positively perfect!! You are a doggie doll! And the children... aren't they just the prettiest little humans!
    many blessings!!

  8. Gracie, I love the sweater, and I'll bet you secretly love the chaos caused by the company of the Room Runner and Princess! ;-))

  9. Now Gracie I can see that you have a very tough life indeed!!! You are so cute! And I think you know how lucky you are with all those great people around you!

  10. I finally get to see the much hoped for Bouncing Baby Bubbles!! No offense to you, Gracie, you are just as cute to look at! Especially in your much eschewed antlers and sweater. It looks like there was more bouncing around there than the bubbly one, too! What great pictures, how much fun you guys had! I especially like the one big group picture! Well, Gracie, I'm thinking you would not like Chinese as much as staying home with your chew toys. Learning to use chopsticks might be a bit RUFF for you, ha ha ha!! Merry Christmas Bobbi and Gracie.

  11. Cute, cute photos and I LOVE that crown.

  12. Oh but Gracie look how sweet you look in your antlers and hat and sweater! What a good dog you are.

  13. Yes, Gracie, rest is good after a lot of fun. And to Bobbi: I was in a holiday funk, too, for a good month. Lost my dad a year ago Thanksgiving and he's been on my mind and in my dreams for several weeks. I've been on the verge of tears off and on, trying to get ready for holiday company, shopping, divinity that fell flat. Anyway, once they all came and ate and played and laughed, I felt better. I'm determined to make it a good New Year, and sit tight until Spring.

    Happy New Year!


  14. I dont think I would have worn that sweater for all the toys in Santa Paws' sack. However, you look mighty smashing in it!
