It's almost here...

We stayed up late last night, to finish making Christmas cookies.  (with lots of collie supervision!) Then when I finally made it to bed, I couldn’t fall asleep.  I think I ended up sleeping about two hours last night.  But it’s Christmas Eve, and they are letting us leave work at 11:00 AM today.  The gifts are all wrapped, the  cookies are made, and the collies are eagerly waiting for Santa to arrive.

I’m not sure why, but Holly, Kori and Scarlett were all pretty naughty yesterday.  Holly stole two Christmas cookies off the counter.  Scarlett and Kori were grabbing everything they could find.  At one point they grabbed some garland, and shredded it on bed!

What do you mean Santa is still watching?

Ryder and Abby were good, but then these two are always good!  We took Ryder to the beach, because I wanted to take a couple pictures. 

Hope everyone has a Merry little Christmas! (and for those who do not celebrate Christmas, Happy Holidays!)


  1. Those 3 naughty ones better be careful--they have to be good until midnight or Santa might leave them lumps of coal in their stockings!!!Beautiful picture at the beach! So different from 2 feet of snow and -25 C temps!! Merry Christmas to all of you!!!!
