Hi everyone it’s Millie & Walter here. As usual we are decked out in our official Christmas Card scarves for the photo shoot.

We ran out of room on our ribbons and had to tape some of the cards to the stone wall. Can you believe our pawrents actually got into the double digits? Their last card was from our Auntie Colleen and her family and she even put a note on the back of the envelope saying she hoped it pushed mom and dad up in the tally. As if they could ever catch us!

Saving our Stamps for Miss Lori

Saving our Stamps for Miss Lori

One of the cool things we did this year was save our stamps for Miss Lori of the What Remains Now blog. She explains in this post how the stamps are used to raise money for a Greyhound rescue in the UK so we ordered our mom to save all our stamps from all our cards. It was easy peasy! She just ripped them off the envelopes and saved them in a little zipper bag. We sent them off to Miss Lori a couple of days before Christmas and have already started saving a new set to send to her at another time. You just have to be sure the envelope doesn’t weigh more than one ounce to go in a regular envelope with just one stamp.

Some of our mom’s friends tried hard to bump up their card count and one of her friends even sent two cards! One to her and one to us so it just evened out. We just love getting all these cards and will be saving them to look at later in the year. Thank you to everyone that sent us a card and especially to the few of you that sent more than one!

Hi everyone it’s Walter here with another Christmas Card Count update. Dad wanted to see me in the Santa hat mom made so I put it on along with my Christmas Card scarf for the photo shoot.

Can you believe our pawrents have jumped from zero to five cards in just one week! Way to catch up mom and dad. NOT! If you look back to last weeks card count post you can see we have almost doubled the number of cards we have and are running out of room!

Keep them coming! We hope we run out of room because that would mean we are very popular and we love seeing what all our friends from Blogville send us. Some of you were asking how we attach the cards to the ribbons and if you click on the image above to make it bigger you can see that we use paperclips. Our mom has some that are plastic coated in black and white so she tries to plan it right so they don’t stand out too much.

A few people also commented on our stone wall so we thought we would give you the full view. It is made of old granite cobblestones. We also have them on the front of our house but we will show you that when the weather is nicer.

We have to apologize for not commenting on your blogs much lately. Our mom likes to do a lot of crafty things for the holidays and has been working her fingers to the bone (details in future posts). We have been visiting and keeping up with everything that is going on, but just not leaving too many comments. We promise things will get better after the holidays are over.  It was hard enough to get her to put her hooks and needles down to do this post!

Hi everyone it’s Walter here. We liked Miss Madi’s theme of Tuesday Tally so we hope she doesn’t mind if we copy her to give you an update on our Christmas Card Count. Mom made Millie and I put on our official Christmas Card scarves for the photo shoot.

Check out all the great cards we have received!

Hey why didn't you wait for me to take the picture?

Millie was upset that mom didn’t wait for her to be in the picture, but we can’t both fit in the chair. Mom wanted her to sit, but she kept lying down so it makes for a very long picture.

What is that white board for? I think it helps mom keep track of how few cards our pawrents have. A big fat ZERO! BOL!

Mom hates to recount the cards every day so she got out her little white board and is keeping the tally on it (you can click on the image to see it bigger). We actually got a few more cards since she took this picture in the morning.  I don’t know why she bothers to put her and dad’s names on the board since we all know they aren’t getting any cards. They are all for us!

We hope you are all kicking butt on your pawrents too in the Christmas Card count. We’ve mailed most of our cards and mom promised she will get the rest in the mail tomorrow so some of you have more coming!
