|Since moving to Oregon a few years ago, we always go back to Idaho to celebrate Christmas with our family. Christmas Eve and Christmas Day are alternated each year between Mommy's family and Daddy's family, but Mati and I aren't allowed to go to Daddy's family celebration because the gramparents built a new house and don't want any doggy hair in it....it's okay, tho, because we just get to spend more time with Grammy and Grampy Lewis.
The celebration with Mommy's family is always fun because we get to see our hooman cousins and they love to play with us. Grampy Lewis either smokes a turkey, or rotisserie bbqs a roast, or one year even cooked a prime rib, and we always get lots of goodies dropped on the floor from our cousins. After feasting, we open presents, which is really fun because Mati and I like to get in the middle of it and cause trouble, so Mommy will pull out our bonus treats to keep us occupied (usually they're rawhide chewies), and with the chewies we settle down by Mommy or Daddy's feet and let them finish opening their presents in peace.
Probably the least enjoyable part about the whole adventure is the drive to and from. Mati and I have become seasoned travellers, but the past few years the roads have been snowy and treacherous, which stresses the parents out an awful lot. We've definitely got our paws crossed that this year the roads will be clear and snowy-free so we can get there and back safely and while making good time.
