HO!Ho!Ho! Did everyone have a happy holiday? Of course, we are still celebrating. We have New Year's Eve, New Year's Day and Three King's Day. I am told that Three King's Day is the day when I will get all of my real presents. Because, to be honest with you, when I woke up on Christmas Day I thought I was on Santa's naughty list. I only got one present.

It was a bag of twisty bones. With a tasty treat in the middle. The bag promised hours of chewing fun, but I ate the first bone so fast that mom thought I dropped it under the couch and moved furniture to look for it!

Why did I only get one present? Mom is always telling me I am a good girl. Sure, I chewed the footboard of grandma's bed(it was so delicious) and mom was planning on selling it to the antique dealer for $50.00 if she was ever super poor. But I think I deserve more than one present. Mom says there are more presents coming for me, it's just that she has been laid flat with the crud and dad is having a hard enough time to do his jobs around the house and mom's household jobs, too so mom didn't even want to add in Christmas stuff. So we are waiting for Three Kings Day.

By the way, dad didn't get any presents either (but, he probably was bad.) The only person in our house to get gifts was mom! They weren't from Santa. They were gifts from her students. She was very happy. They picked her out things like candy, candles, body lotion, coffee mugs and t-towels. Being a teacher does have it's rewards.

So as you can imagine we had a quiet Christmas. Mom and Dad sang the morning mass. We didn't have a fancy dinner for Christmas Day. We had good things on Christmas eve: Shrimp Scampi, Crab Cakes and a slovak dish called (guessing at the spelling)bulbaki. Oh and Oplatki,too.

The only thing special mom and dad have done for the holidays was go to the movies with Jake and Luke. They went to see The Hobbit. Mom said I wouldn't like it because there were mean,ugly troll dogs in it. But I would have liked hanging out with Jake and Luke. It is a Christmas tradition for mom and dad and Jake and Luke to go to the movies together. They have been doing it every year since the First Harry Potter. The only way their tradition has changed is now Jake picked mom and dad up in his car instead of mom and dad picking Jake and Luke up in their car.

I think mom is going to see if Big and Little want to come and celebrate Three Kings Day next week. I will keep you posted. Oh and we have not had the bad nasty weather that the rest of the country has had. Today was the first day it's been dreary and rainy. Maybe the rain will turn into snow.

So Happy New Year!
