It was a nice weekend. Mom wanted to make something called a Christmas Kissing Ball. We used to have a hanging plant outside of our house but it died because it is almost Winter now. Mom looked up how to make one on the internet. Mom took a bag with us on our noon walk and started to collect all these pine cones! I tried to help her find some. I didn't know she wanted so many of them. We got home and daddy got home from skating a short time after. Mom decided making the kissing ball was going to be too much work after all!! This is after we had collected all these pine cones!!! Anyway, after we went to the pet store we started to check out places that sold Christmas trees to see if they had any. The first place only had trees. Next mom and dad checked out the grocery store near the pet store. I waited in the car. Mom said they had one left but it was dried out and the pine needles were falling off. Mom remembered a place down the road so daddy drove us there. Sure enough, they had trees, wreaths and kissing balls! As daddy pulled the car up mom saw a kissing ball that had purple ribbons and decorations on it! Mom got all excited! We got out of the car and daddy said we could buy it. This one was nice and in very good condition. Daddy went inside to pay for it. Mom and I walked around outside looking at all the other Christmas decorations they had. Daddy asked the lady inside if dogs were allowed in and she said "yes". Mom and I went inside to look around. They had all of these beautiful plants called poinsettia. Mom was looking at all the different ones. They all looked alike to me, but then I don't see the same colors as mom and dad does. Then mom saw a poinsettia that was very different and unique. It is white with a pale pink in the middle. Mom bought it. I was eager to get home because my cookie and flossie was still in the bag with the pet food. Mom hung up her kissing ball and was happy. I was happy that she was happy.
