The Powers Pack's Christmas Wish for You

Here is an oldie but goodie Christmas wish I made a few years ago. But I've updated it to include two members of the family, Ed the Dalmatian who we're fostering, and Chloe my beautiful cat/lap hog.


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.
Be tolerant of newcomers to the family gatherings, even if they overstep their boundaries.
If you have to play Santa, do it with a smile.
If someone seems obsessed with a new gift, humor them.
If someone is sick, support them.
When the family is starting to get on your nerves, take a few quiet moments to yourself to reflect on things....
...and of course, to smell the flowers.
Catch up on your reading....
...and have a wonderful holiday full of love, laughter, peace and friendship.
Happy holidays from Laurie, Ed, Annie, and Chloe.

Love it! Excellent advice for the holidays, and the photos make me smile. They are priceless, especially the "be tolerant" one. :-)
