Christmas with the collies!

Oh My Dog!  Did we have a wonderful Christmas!  On Christmas Eve, Mom went out to dinner with Grandma and Aunt Karen, then they went to Midnight mass.  (Which was held at 10:00, so Mom wasn't out too late!)  We didn't get to go to dinner or mass, so we waited at home, and kept watch for Santa.

Christmas morning we woke up when Mom's alarm went off.  Our human sister had to work at the dog kennel, to take care of all the dogs who were spending their Christmas there.  So we all had to get up early, but we really didn't mind.   Holly jumped up and started barking as soon as Mom's alarm went off.  She never does this, but she was extra excited because it wasn't just Christmas, it was also her birthday!  We didn't see Santa, but he did stop by our house!  We aren't sure how he got in without waking us up, but he gave us so many presents!  Kori ran right for the presents, and grabbed one.  She remembered her first Christmas last year, and couldn't wait for the rest of us.  Before our sister went to work, we were each allowed to open one present!

Mom dropped our sister off at work, and came back home for snuggling.  We watched a Christmas movie while we waited.  Before long our sister was back home, and we were allowed to open all our presents.  Scarlett really enjoyed her first Christmas, and she loved opening presents!

Then mom and our sister went over Grandma's house.  Holly was invited to go, because it was her birthday.  She spent the day getting cookies and taking turns laying in front of the fire with our collie cousin, Chase.
