Oh My goodness

Hello Friends.

I trust everyone had a wonderful Christmas.  Oh my goodness I did.  I can't possibly show you everything in one post, so I may have to spread it all out. Let's begin shall we.

Christmas morning started like this for me.  As I mentioned earlier my MOM does not get home from church until about 1AM.  But this time it was more like 1:30AM Christmas morning.  Then we snuggle up on the couch and watch "A Muppet Christmas Carol."  I will admit that I fell asleep about 30 minutes into it.  But then around a quarter to 6 it was present time.

But first let me give you the card count.
Goose-  113
MOM-    21
Both-    10
Thank you to each and everyone of you for your wonderful cards.  I love, love each one!

This here my pile of presents.  Well two of these are for both me and my MOM.

"Hey MOM can I open them now?"

My gift exchange partner was Mayor Elect Madi, and look at this very cool squirrel (MOM says it's a fox).  

It tried to get away.  But I put a stop to it.  hehehe.  I love it Madi, thank you, thank you.  And not only did she sent me this great stuffie but she gave my MOM a very beautiful scarf AND AND she also sent me a STICK all the way from her yard!  How cool is that?!!  Speaking of sticks I received 9 sticks.  Sticks of all kinds, real sticks, toy sticks and even a cross stitched stick that hangs on my wall now.  You pups and kit kats really know what I like.

This is my new Moose friend, Billy.  I named him Billy because my good friends Buddy and Lilly gave him to me.  After I opened all my presents I snuggled in with Billy and took a little snooze.

OK it was longer than a snooze.  But I was very tired after opening all my gifts.  And Billy stayed with me the whole time.  When I woke up I remembered I did not look to see what was inside my stocking!  Want to see what was in my stocking?  It was the best gift EVER!!

Yep that is right, it's my MOM.  My MOM's foot was in my stocking.  I got exactly what I wanted for Christmas, to spend the whole day with her.

And then I took another nap.  Yep perfect day for Goose.  But you know what?  Even if I did not get a tree, or a stocking or even any presents it still would have been perfect because I got to spend it with the one I love and that is all that really matters.  In fact that's what Christmas is all about, LOVE.  I hope your Christmas was filled with love overflowing, and that your cup continues to spill over the brim each and every day.

  5. Merry Christmas Goose, my friend. Looks like your cup really ran over today and I'm glad you had lots of time with just your mom. My mom gave me something she called a present but to me it was a great piece of paper. I was chomping away on it when she showed me there was something else under it -- a squeaky pig. She says next year she's just going to give me the wrapping paper because I seemed pretty happy with that. Hmmmmm, wonder what she meant by that!
    Merry, Merry Christmas,

    Y'all come back now,
    Hawk aka BrownDog

  24. What a wonderful day, give moms foot a hug from us!

  25. Sounds like you had a great day and got lots of cool presents.

  26. Oh Goose it does sound like a very delightful Christmas surrounded with love and presents ... oh my! I better not let Cricket know - poor girl, got an iou for a bed!

  27. Goose,
    What a warm and snuggly Christmas. Just like you!


  28. What a beautiful Christmas you and your Mom had Goose! Being with family is the most important thing on the list for sure. You got some really cool gifts too.

    Catch up on your sleep because New Years Eve is right around the corner.....

    Lily Belle & Muffin

  29. Goose, you're so right. It's all about love. Hanging out with the one you love, opening presents, sleeping, and then opening some more. I hope that your mom is feeling okay. If she has the same thing that we had/have, it's terrible. Make sure that she rests so that she doesn't end up like me... (my family decided that they didn't want to be anywhere near us germ-laden people - I didn't blame them - so we had Christmas as a small family...)

  30. Wow! You really got a lot of cool gifts! And, you have a good perspective on what really matters!

  31. Billy. It's perfect. It made us laugh out loud and smile like crazy. Lilly and Buddy even wagged their bodies. Just perfect. I'm so glad you were surrounded with so much love! That's the best.

  32. Merry Late Christmas
