Christmas Wishes and a Few Helpful Tips to Survive the Holiday

All of us at Laurie's Wild West want to wish you a happy holiday and want to pass along some helpful holiday tips.

Be generous at family gatherings, especially at the dinner table.



Take lots of deep, uninterrupted naps.



But always keep an ear out for Santa.



If you fall asleep in the armchair, try not to fall out.


If you have to play Santa, do it with a smile.


Try to take a few quiet moments to yourself to reflect on things.


Catch up on your reading....



But the pulpier, the better.



May you have a wonderful holiday full of love, laughter, peace and friendship.

Love, from Laurie, Annie, Xena and Albee.

Thank you so much for the pics. Brought a big smile to my face. Your cat looks a little bit like our Cleo.
And your dogs look like a real joy. I'll bet you are going to miss them.

The Santa dog picture is a great one. I can't tell if he's disgusted or happy. The cat resembles our Lady Guinevere, who unfortunately passed on.

Laurie said...

JerThom: thank you. I hope you have a wonderful holiday season. I'm glad you joined us here at the Wild West.

Andrea: I STILL haven't opened your present because it's so pretty. Merry Christmas!

Benoit: thank you! How nice to hear from you. I'm thrilled that you found Kris this year and that you've become part of my life too. Merry Christmas!

Paul: The best of wishes to you, mate. I'm glad we got to know each other this year.

Oscar: The Santa dog is Annie and she's always happy - when she's not sleeping. Merry Christmas!

Kris said...

Merry Christmas to you and all of your fuzzy family, from Sara and me!! We love you.

What a Christmas treat! Laurie has just started a new family tradition. She always does things like this! It's almost as if her brain is going to explode with all her ideas and the reality of it is right here. She can do it! An ever blooming techno sister, that's what she is. Love you Laurie even though you wouldn't help me clean our closet and under our bunkbeds up just because I was the slob. And I'd like to take a moment to say thank you from the bottom of my heart for ironing my hair all senior year! Jeez, you have so many talents, including being a human CHI! Your calender, the little big one of Xena. Annie & Albee going on an incredible journey type trip to Bizzbee, Arizona, it's coming out when? HA. You are so awesome, thanks for a huge smile covering my face. Which knocked off all the fudge and soda cracker pie crumbs! Be careful driving and down forget your gas mask, the valley can be treacherous as you know, due to whey ponds, neverending dairy or chicken cages or cattle holding pens, not to mention our FOG. Can't wait to see you! Missed you much.
