I'm so happy that I get to write to you on New Year's Day!
I know you all saw our Christmas picture (from Mom and Dad's anniversary),
but I want to share some other pictures from the same day. We had great fun!
Mom set up her tripod and put her camera on top, and then Dad
took a few pictures of her with our friend, Richard and me.
We really like this one.
Did you know that we're sitting on our waterfall for the pool?
Yup. Rick thought we should turn on the water. He's real funny!
When it was time for a picture of (almost) all of us, Dad set the timer on
Mom's camera and then ran to get into the shot before the shutter snapped.
I didn't know that I was supposed to look at the camera, so I was always
lookin' somewhere else. Mom just kept on smilin'. She's a photographer's
wife, you know, so she's had a lot of practice hammin' for the camera.
When we were finished with our family pictures, Richard asked Mom
to take a picture of him with my buddy, Stout. (Hey, Man. You're getting
a little grey around the muzzle. So are you, Stout! hee hee I crack me up!)
Seriously, though. I really like Stout and he's comin' back over today to
help us celebrate the first day of the new year. I know we'll have a good time.
I want to show you one more thing before I close to go party...
This is me with a stuffed toy called a "Squishable". It's a corgi.
Mom and Dad got one to give to Granddaughter #2 for a Christmas gift.
When she got it, she called to tell us that she loved it, and it's new name
is "Donut"...because it looks like it ate too many donuts! She's pretty clever.
Mom actually got a second Squishable, which she auctioned off on her FaceBook
page to raise money for CorgiAid. She also auctioned off some other things
a couple of weeks ago. She raised a total of $135 to help sick and homeless
corgis. She said we're gonna do more auctions in 2013, not only for CorgiAid,
but also to raise money to help the animals at our local no-kill shelter.
I can't wait to see what she's gonna auction, but today we'll welcome in
2013 and wish all of our friends and loved ones a Happy New Year!
May you all have Health, Love and Prosperity in great abundance.
I'm going to wait for Stout now. I'll see you next week. 'til then,
"More Waggin' and Less Barkin'!"
