Hi everyone! It’s Millie and Walter here. First we have to apologize to Rosy and Lady Shasta for taking so long to do this post. We of course are blaming our mom for dragging her feet.

Look at these pressie packages!

Millie’s pressie package arrived first so we will show you that one first.

I have to help get it out of the box.

Thanks for these great pressies Rosy!

Everything was in that cute burlap bag and there was even a magnet for our mom’s car. She will put it on sometime after she washes it the next time.

Here is a video of us opening the pressie package and our first reactions to the pressies.

If you can’t see the video you can go here to view it.

Thanks Rosy. You sure know how to shop for a gal.

Now it’s time to show you what Walter got from Lady Shasta.

It took some work but I finally got this bag open.

There were four wrapped packages inside.

All of these smell good.
Can I help you open anything?

I’ll open this one for you Walter.

Look at all the great pressies Walter got.

Here is a video of the action to get Walter’s pressie package open and our reaction to what was inside.

Thanks Lady Shasta. You sure know how to shop for a guy.

I spent most of my time playing with the gator toy and we put the treats right in our cookie jar. I will wait to use those tennis balls until the winter is over. I wouldn’t want to loose them in the snow. Mom wouldn’t let us eat the two big cookies right away but we did try them a couple of days later and boy were they tasty.

Well that is what we got from the Blogville Christmas Gift Exchange. We want to thank Oreo and his mom for coordinating it and of course a big thanks to Rosy and Lady Shasta for being such great shoppers.

Hi everyone! It’s Millie here. Today I’m going to tell you about the great pressie package I got from my gift exchange partner Pippen from My Life with Scotties. Thanks to Oreo and his mom for putting all of this together for us.

Mom helped me pull the pressies from the box and then I carefully took the tissue off.

This one smells fantastic!

Wow Pippen you are a really great shopper. Now it’s time for some taste tests.

Mom let me try both cookies and they were fantastic! After the taste tests I stepped away for a quick drink and when I got back this is what I found.

If you can’t see the video you can go here to see it.

I know Walter really loves playing with stuffies so I let him have it for a little while. Mom took it away before he totally destroyed it though. Thanks again to Pippen and to Oreo and both their mom’s for making the gift exchange possible. I love all my pressies.

Hi everyone it’s Millie & Walter here. We were so excited to sign up for Angel Jazzi’s Christmas Gift Exchange this year. We will tell you later about the gifts we gave but today it is all about the gifts we received.

These pressies look great Millie!  Back off this is my box.

First up let’s see what Millie got. I got some great pressies from my partner Duncan from the White Dog Blog.

Look at all this great stuff!

Here is my official sit next to your pressie picture.

Mom always makes us pose with stuff.

I may not look thrilled but really I am it’s just that I get nervous when mom makes me pose for pictures. Even though Duncan is a boy he sure knows how to shop for a girl like me. He even included a gift for our mom.

Let’s move on and see what Walter got from his exchange partner Edward from Two French Bulldogs.

Maybe we can lick it off?

We have to admit that both of us were a little wrapping paper challenged and had to have mom help us.

Thanks Edward!  These are great pressies.

Thanks Edward! These are great pressies.

OMD look at the great pressies Edward got me. Did you notice that Millie and I got the same crinkle ball only different colors? Maybe Edward and Duncan shopped together.

Mom wanted to get official pictures of all our loot.

Those Ginger Bread Cookies smell great. Who cares about those cookies...I want that bone!

Those Gingerbeg Cookies smell great.
Who cares about those cookies…I want that bone!

All we wanted was to sample some of those treats. First up were the Gingerbeg Cookies. You did read that right, they are called “Gingerbeg” and OMD do they ever make you beg for more.

Bring it on! These cookies are great!

Om Nom Nom Nom....

Om Nom Nom Nom….

Stingy mom only let us have one cookie each. Something about not wanting to upset our tummies if we ate the whole box or something. Oh well she did let us try one of the other treats we got.

Dried chicken breast strips! I love them!

Dried chicken breast strips! I love them!

This sure is drool worthy.

I’m in such a hurry to get it I’m blurry!

Both those treats were amazing. We had never had anything like them. Now we just have to get our mom to give us some more.

We can’t thank our partners Edward and Duncan enough. They picked perfect pressies for both of us. Also very big thanks to Angel Jazzi’s mom for organizing such a fun event.

Don’t forget to start sending us your stamps (some of you already have so thanks). Just leave a comment if you need our mailing address. We will give an update on our card count soon.

Hi everyone it’s Millie & Walter here. We want to tell you about the great pressies we got from our partners in Jazzi’s Gift Exchange. First we have to thank Jazzi and her mom for organizing this great event.

Pressie box for Millie from Jacque

Pressie box for Millie from Jacque

First up I, Millie, will tell you about the pressies I got from Jacque at My Life With Scotties. I just love the super cute Scottie card.

That Jacque sure knows how to shop. Old Mother Hubbard treats, a squeaky ball with feets and, Frankie & Ernie avert your eyes, a snowman ornament. Now I think he threw the snowman in to get on my mom’s good side. It’s made from little balls of yarn and with my mom being a hooker…er…I mean a crocheter she loves anything having to do with yarn.

Now it’s my, Walter’s, turn to tell you about the pressies I got from Stanley of Murphy & Stanley. Stanley is a super cool Dood and he definitely knows how to shop for a friend.

Oh My Dog! Stanley got me an antler and some Zuke’s Lil’ Links! These are great.

This is my antler! Whatcha got there Walter?

Whatcha got there Walter?

As soon as mom took the antler out of the wrapper Millie was trying to steal it from me and in no time this is what happened.

What? I thought we shared everything?

What? I thought we shared everything?

Before I could even blink Millie ran off to the bedroom with MY antler. Well that is okay because next thing Millie new this is where she found that squeaky ball she got.

I just love anything that squeaks!

I just love anything that squeaks!

Well I guess it all turned out okay in the end. By the way we did give both types of treats a taste test, but we are always too fast for mom to photograph it.

We both want to thank Jazzi and her mom, Jacque and his mom, and Stanley and his family for making this pressie exchange great. We sure had a Merry Christmas!

Hi everyone it’s Cindy here. First I want to apologize for not commenting much lately. As I explained earlier I had been crafting my fingers weary and then a few days ago I got knocked out by a very nasty migraine headache. Since I am finally feeling among the living I just finished catching up on all your blogs with a minimum of comments.

With that off my chest I thought I would show you our Christmas tree. You might have caught a glimpse of it in our previous post so I thought I would give you a close up view.

Daylight view of our tree

Daylight view of our tree

Yes it is an artificial tree and it sits on a table to keep nosy puppies away from the precious ornaments. We have had this tree for many years and I love being able to have one up and not have to worry about the pups wrecking it. One of our special new ornaments this year is the angel we bought from Mollie & Alfie’s shop.

First ornament on the tree

She was the first ornament I put up this year. I just love her cute smile. Here are a few of my other favorite ornaments on our tree.

Yarn Snowman Ornament

Yarn Snowman Ornament

This yarn snowman (sorry Frankie & Ernie) is our newest ornament and was part of Millie’s gift exchange pressie from Jacque of My Life With Scotties (more about the rest of the pressies later). He is so cute and just what I needed to represent my obsession with yarn.

Lighted Bird House

Lighted Bird House

This bird house is really fun and I love how you can put a bulb inside to light up it’s Christmas tree and all the lights on its house.

Painted Glass Cardinal Ornament

This is a very cool painted ornament that I like to place with some lights right behind it. I love the way it looks especially at night.

Whimsical Dog Ornament

Whimsical Dog Ornament

One of the most fun ornaments is this cute dog ornament I received many years ago from a co-worker. It makes me giggle every time I look at it.

Christmas Tree at Night

Christmas Tree at Night

Here is another look at our tree with most of the room lights off. There are a lot of German Shepherd and Rottweiler ornaments to represent our Angels as well as a variety of glass and ceramic ornaments. I like to finish it off with a set of red balls and a red wooden bead garland that looks like cranberries strung together without the mess.

I hope you enjoyed seeing our tree this year. So far we haven’t found any ornaments to represent Millie & Walter but we will keep on looking.

Hi everyone it’s Millie here! I have to tell you about an amazing surprise we all got last week. Mom said she wasn’t expecting any packages so when the mailman drove up the driveway and dropped something off we had no idea what it was.

Pressie box - from DWM

 

It was addressed to Walter and I and if you don’t recognize the last name on the return address you wouldn’t know that it was a pressie package from the Dachsies With Moxie! We couldn’t wait for mom to get that box open.

millie - sniffing pressies in box

 

Everything was well wrapped so I had to do some digging to get at the pressies. With some help from mom all was revealed.

There were three great toys in there!  A giant tennis ball, a green dog with extra rope on the side of his head and a cool red and blue toy that looked like it was the same shape as a dachshund! The big envelope was some embroidery stuff for mom {boring!}. There was also this great letter from our cousins Tasha, Chip and Snoopy.

pressie note - from DWM

 

The timing of the pressies couldn’t be better since my birthday was only a few days away. I decided that since the note said it was to welcome us to the family that I should probably share them with Walter too.

We took them up to the bedroom for a complete inspection and test drive.

walter - playing with green toy

 

Walter really liked the green one…

millie - playing with red toy and ball

 

and I liked the red one and the ball. Mom and dad won’t let us play with any stuffed toys without supervision since we have a tendency to rip them apart, but the ball is one of our permanent outdoor toys. Something about it being too bouncy for inside the house and knocking things over. We have a great time chasing the ball and playing keep away with it and I make sure to tell mom or dad to get out the stuffies so we can play with them often.

I just want to say a great big THANK YOU to the Dachsies With Moxie for this fantastic surprise. If you don’t already know them you should hop over to their blog and say hello.
