Christmas is always special when you have your family and especially when there are small children! It was a magical Christmas for our 3-year-old grandson, Paxton and it was a very special 1st Christmas for our 12-week-old grandson, Caleb!
Seriously, can it get any better than this?!
With the wonder of the internet and skype, we were able to visit with out of state family - Skype really is the next best thing to being there! We had a wonderful time with our family and nothing is more special than having a houseful of family and loving up on sweet grand-babies and even grand-dogs!
The worst part of Christmas was that this was the last Christmas for our beloved dog, Molly.
Molly is the 4th English Springer Spaniel that we have had and was part of our family for 10 wonderful years. She did everything with us - camping, traveling, vacations, boating - you name it! Everyone that knew her, loved her - she had a special way of melting hearts! She lived a
good great life and she gave back as much love as we gave her!
|Molly's favorite thing to do was to go|
boating with us!
We spoil our animals rotten - my mother-in-law always jokes and says that if she believed in re-incarnation that she would like to come back as our dog. I quickly remind her that she would have to use the bathroom outside no matter what the weather, she could not eat at the table with us and there would be absolutely no sleeping in our bed! haha!
I am sure that there will be another dog in our future, who will capture our love as much as all the other dogs we have had. Each one holds a special place in our hearts. Someday I will have to do a blog post about all the pets that have been a part of my life since I was a little girl, even tho it has absolutely nothing to do with sewing!
Many thanks to those who sent me their condolences on facebook - many who fell in love with Molly, just by the pictures I have posted thru the years. R.I.P. Sweet Molly, you were loved by all and will live in our hearts forever!
