SECRET SANTA A HUGE SUCCESS!

Someone loved their "Secret Santa" gifts....Yes, lucky boy that he is...he got two gifts! One is the toy he is watching over in these photo's and the other was a great eating-type treat..."Feline GREENIES"....Chicken Flavor....Yummmy...his favorite!)




In these pictures Sweetie is resting for a moment on his favorite spot....coveting his toy....and making sure that he is the only one who gets to play with it...I'm not sure what he has in mind because I'm the only other person who lives in this house and I stopped chasing his toys about a week ago!
(It's true, he knows I love the Valentine Heart Shape....so maybe he's worried I'll pounce on his toy and scurry away with it and try to hide it from him....he needn't worry...I stopped sniffing catnip about two weeks ago!


'Secret Santa' was a very fun thing to participate in and I would urge anyone who didn't do it this year, to think about doing it next Christmas. I know, I know....it's really too soon to be thinking about next Christmas when no one has truly recovered yet from this Christmas...but...it was a very special thing to be a part of and as far as Sweetie is concerned he enjoyed both parts to it....the giving of a gift and the getting of a gift....who could ask for more....

Here's another example of the friendships that can happen in the Blogesphere...see, my lovely's, these friendships can include our dear four footed friends as well as ourselves!

Amazing, the wonderful benefits of blogging, isn't it?

It's almost the New Year of 2006!

How could we be more than halfway though this decade already when it was just finally the year 2000??....

What are you doing New Year's Eve?

Hi my dear :-)

I love that 'It's MINE' picture of Sweetie. So glad the SP worked out both ways.

Of course, the nice bit wasn't the gifts (although they are an added bit of spice), it was meeting new people and their pets. And most importantly, of course, meeting the Cowboy. Such a nice chap and so sad Eppy going to the Bridge just before Christmas. So good we were able to lend virtual support when it was needed most.

I am definitely putting the bagcat and snotrag in for SP again next year!

He is such a beautiful cat! Isn't it funny how they covet their toys when there's really no other animal around who'll take it?

I know I've said it before but he is SUCH a gorgeous puss.

I'll be partying at my house on New Years Eve. I'm on call for work (IT Systems) so we decided to have the party at our place so if I do get called I can just sneak out and not disrupt the party. Fingers crossed, there shouldn't be any calls, tonight's the end of year processing when all the doodoo will hit the fan.

My puppy got a fuzzy stuffed bone, covered in leopard print, and now he thinks it's his girlfriend. He drags that thing everywhere with him, it's the funniest thing ever! The dog equivalent of a blow up doll, I guess. =) For New Years there will be 5 of us couples going out. We reserved the balcony of a very funky restaurant here, and always have a blast. Hope your ringing in of the New Year is fabulous!

Going over to watch the "descent aux flambeaux" at 6:30pm, the ski instructors ski with torches while we get some vin chaud (spiced hot wine) and the kids get hot chocolate. Wishing you all the best for 2006 from the lovely French Alps.

For New Years Eve.... BionicDwarf is coming over & we're watching the pilot & then all 13 episodes of the first series of Battlestar Galactica back to back. Should last about 12 hours - not counting breaks. Sad or WHAT!

Though there will be beer/vodka & pizza involved... So not THAT sad really...

Sweetie look almost identical to our Snowball (dearly departed), right down to the ruff around the neck. That is one beautiful cat.

I am babysitting tomorrow night for 4 grandkids so their mom and her hubs can go out on the town. Hope you have a great New Year's Eve and a super year in 2006!

Sweetie is so pretty!! What a lovely cat she is! I can see she is enjoying the toy!

I have no plans for New Year's Eve. Just stay home and watch the ball drop I guess, but that's okay!!

I can't believe the year is nearly over. Where does the time go?

I hope you have a lovely New Year's Eve dear Naomi! Enjoy!!

Old Old Lady of the Hills, (that is so much fun to say and well, write)
I love cats, too. Ours didn't get anything. She is okay about it though. She didn't get us anything either.

I wanted to remind you about Friendly Friday. There is a special marathon this week. The band is asked to vote for the best previous featured Friendless Site for 2005. So come and practise your democratic privilege.

Have a Happy and safe Happy New Year.

1/2 way thru the decade? I hadn't even thought of that! We always stay home New Year's Eve, although we may go out to dinner earlier with my kids. Halloween & New Years are the 2 holidays I don't care for driving the streets...
And New Years Day, I'll be sleeping in ;)

Have a wonderful New Years & a blessed 2006

We don't have huge plans. My parents have asked Ethan to spend the night with him. Adam and I may walk to the neighborhood bar for a few cocktails, and then come home and watch a movie (quietly) together.

Wishing you a very, very happy New Year ! ! !

Hi! Michele sent me today. Your cat is beautiful! Be careful and keep an eye on him with the greenies. They made one of my dogs really sick, so they don't get greenies anymore. Happy New Year!

OMG, he is so beautiful. This entry makes me want to go out and adopt another one.

My wife would kill me, though.

Decisions...

We're going to spend the big night with the kids. They'll be taking pictures of us with their new cameras. Uh oh...we are in SUCH trouble!
