Christmas Card

Hi everybody! Hope you all had a great weekend. I helped Mom make Chex Mix. Thankfully the oven lasted through that. I love helping Mom make Chex Mix because there's ALWAYS pretzels and cereal falling on the floor. Since the kitchen in the new house has carpet (which Mom HATES!) I make sure I clean up the messes for her before they get stepped on and ground into the carpet. I know Mom appreciates my help.
We had some issues sending the Christmas exchange email so if you are coming by to tell me it didn't work or it was weird, we're very sorry! It also left off the link to my site so some of you may not even know it was from me! We're not sure if it's a Yahoo email issue or a Mom issue. We're not going to try to figure it out because it will make Mom eat the entire box of chocolate that my Aunt Gillian gave to her. So, here is my card for those of you that couldn't open it and for those of you that didn't participate in the card exchange:
Okay, now it's not cooperating on here! Since you can't read the writting I'll tell you what it says. Under our group photo (which is our first ever picture with all 3 of us in it and probably the last since we don't cooperate very well) it says "We're begging you to have a Merry Christmas!" Then under our pictures it has our names "Lady Kaos, Sasha Doo & Gunnar" and then it says "Or else this could happen to you." Next year Mom is going to start a lot sooner, like maybe January 1st! She thought starting 2 weeks ago was time enough, but for some reason silly little things kept giving her a hard time. Dad ended up helping her with it yesterday afternoon because she was so frustrated with it and he was having issues with it, too. It finally emailed this morning and some of you say you got it fine and some say it's a weird .dat file even though it left Mom's email as a .jpg! Really weird.
Hope you all have a Merry Christmas! I don't know if I'll be able to post much this week. Mom's crazy busy with work and I'm crazy busy trying to keep the house guarded through closed drapes all day. It's actually warm enough to have them open again, but Mom got in the routine of not opening them last week so now she keeps forgetting! Thanks to everyone that suggested she build a bigger ledge for me. It didn't work because then the Christmas tree and her plants wouldn't fit there so perfectly like they do now. She has an excuse for everything.
We want to thank everyone for leaving such wonderful comments for my mom last week. A lot of you helped her out a lot. She made it through Friday pretty well. My Aunt Gillian and her spent all day emailing each other silly things to help them both get through the day and they both did some baking therapy (although Mom's was more stressful than theraputic because of the oven).
Have a Merry Christmas everyone!!!!!!

I thought it was part of the recipe for some to be relocated to the floor. That's what happens here too. I'm sorry about your ledge not being made bigger. Maybe we'll have to suggest shorter curtains. I love your card!

Thank-you for the lovely Christmas card. How did you get them to all sit like that, and most remarkably how did you get the CAT to sit with everyone? That was so cute!

We got our card. It said something about the margins, but we didn't care. We printed it out anyway. We got the pictures of the three of you and that is all that matters.

That is a wonderful card. You are all so good to sit at attention. I suspect there might have been foodables involved.

Hi Kaos,
Thanks for your note. I'm sorry about your Mom's Mom last year. I am guilty of not keeping up with everydog's blog so I missed that post. These things always catch us by surprise. I am glad your Dad quit smoking a year and a half ago. My Mom's friends who have quit smoking (and who used to be avid smokers) all told her they can't stand the smell of cigarettes now! We all also have to be careful with second hand smoke.
