Christmas Pictures

I took lots of Christmas pics, mainly on Christmas Eve with my cousin who has the same camera as I do. We always enjoy playing around with our cameras and learning new things! So that's just what we did. Then, of course, I took some pics of Sadie by the tree. She always looks so annoyed in pictures! Anyway, here they are. Tomorrow I will post some pics from the blizzard! :) (If you're friends with me on Facebook, you may have already seen these!)

 Our tree, which I decorated all by myself!
 Why must I pose for pictures???
I'm so cute. I can has presents now?

Secret Santa!

I am probably the last to post about our Secret Santa gift!! Sorry about that. I had a very busy weekend, and haven't been online at all. We were very excited to participate in the Corgi Butts Secret Santa Gift Exchange this year (and we hope to do it next year, too!). Sadie got super spoiled this year with Christmas gifts,  but she had a lot of fun...I have lots of pictures to post over the next few days, but this post is entirely dedicated to Secret Santa.

Our Secret Santa was Ty and Carleen from Puppy on a Roomba! (Ty and Sadie could be siblings! They look so much alike!) We were so excited to open our presents. Check out what Sadie got:


 Hide a Squirrel!! One of Sadie's favorites! (She is blurry in most pics because she was too excited to sit still haha.)
 MA, I'm trying to play here.

 A skineez! Sadie, going in for the kill! (Please excuse my laundry basket lol.)
 She clearly dislikes when I take pictures of her playing haha.
 Thinking about having another Lick N' Crunch! Ha.
 Posing with her awesome loot!
The adorable card, and Ty's business card haha. How professional!!

Thank you SO much Ty and Carleen! We love our gifts! 

If you'd like to see what we got our Secret Santa, check out Milo the Corgi's blog. He is an adorable corgi pup, and he seemed to like his gifts hehe.

We hope everyone had a nice holiday! Lots more pics to come :)

Our Christmas Cards

Seeing as my cards have been received by nearly all of their recipients, I wanted to share them here for everyone else to see! I ordered my cards from Shutterfly and I chose two different designs. So even if you got a card from me, you haven't seen the other design! :) (P.S. If I said I would send you a card and you haven't gotten it, let me know! Hopefully everyone received them.)

I really was impressed by how the cards came out this year and definitely would recommend ordering them from Shutterfly! I loved the cardstock they were printed on, too. Previously I've just gotten the cards that were on photo paper. Anyway, here are both of the designs. Let me know what you think!

 Design A
Design B
Hope everyone has a wonderful holiday! :)

Winter is REALLY Here!

Last weekend, we finally got our Christmas tree! But we still haven't decorated it...We also bought lights to hang up outside, but we haven't put those up yet either haha. We're moving at a glacial pace this holiday season. There has just been too much to do, and not enough time. I will be sure to post pictures when the lights are up and the tree is decorated though! Sadie wasn't too interested in the tree. In fact, it was in the garage when I took her out and she walked right past it. I was like HELLO there is a giant tree, do you not even want to sniff it??? She's so over it.

I sent out all my Christmas cards and packages yesterday! So if you are getting a card from me, be on the lookout :) I ended up getting two different card designs, so I'll post both here after Christmas. And besides all that Christmas cheer, I woke up this morning to snow! Not a lot, but it's the first snowfall of the season, and Sadie didn't seem to care haha. I think she was focused on the task at hand (going to the bathroom), because after that, she frolicked a bit and ate some snow. She will be very excited when we get our first snow storm. She loves jumping right into the snow and bouncing around.

In the holiday spirit, I wanted to post a few pics that make me smile. Unfortunately, these are not pictures I've taken, but this winter my goal is to take a lot more pictures! These are just some stock photos I came across on Getty Images that I wanted to share.

This is my wallpaper on my computer at home, and every time I see it, I smile:

You can download this wallpaper in the Microsoft Personalization Gallery. Christmas lights make me happy haha.

Ok, here are two pictures I took last year. I just love winter trees.

We hope the holidays are treating you well!

The Corgi (or Any Breed) Card Exchange!

As I mentioned, we ordered our holiday cards, and we'd like to share the love with our blog friends!! Would you like to receive a holiday card from us?? If so, email me your mailing address. My email is I think it would be fun to get lots of corgi (or other breed) cards in the mail! And yes, you don't have to have a corgi or have a picture of your dog on your card to participate. Corgi Card Exchange just sounds good hahaha. I also think it would be fun to get as many people in our blog community to post about this in their blog! Obviously, we can't all send out hundreds of cards. But if we all sent out ten, and received from ten different people, that would be fun! Just a thought. So email me if you'd like to receive one of our cards. Let me know what you think! I know some of you have posted about this already on your blogs :) Happy Holidays!!

The Most Wonderful Time of the Year!

Well, winter is officially upon us. I saw snow flurries on my way to work this morning!! I know some of you have already gotten much more snow than that, but flurries are all I can handle right now hahaha. I'm just not in the winter mood this year. I'm already freezing!

I've been doing pretty well with my Christmas shopping this year. Usually I'm shopping on Christmas Eve! Yes, I'm one of those people haha. But I actually made lists and only have a few more things to get. This is good, since I have to mail out so many of the gifts! Someone I haven't really shopped for yet, though, is Sadie!! It's always fun shopping for her, so I don't worry about what to get. Plus, she just loves presents in general. She totally KNOWS that the gifts inside her stocking are for her. She guards it!!

I've gotten her a few things so far, and I wanted to share some gift ideas with you! Shhhh, don't tell Sadie!!! :)

I got her this cool toy when I went to Target on Black Friday. It has three different types of squeakers in it and no stuffing. It feels like a water bottle almost, but doesn't make that sound, which I think might scare her.

I'll be checking out PetSmart soon for the rest of her gifts, plus all the other pets on my list! I have 4 cats and two dogs to buy for besides Sadie (and that includes our Secret Santa recipient!).

I might not get these, but here are some of the toys I like on

Sadie LOVES these squeaker balls, so this might be a good one for her!

I thought these were super cute. Sadie would love the long legs to tug on!

I so wish they had my school!!!! They have a ton of these college themed loofa toys, but not one for University of Florida. BOO!

You may recognize this one! This is what I got Sadie for her birthday. Everyone seemed interested in it, so I thought I'd post the link. She loves this toy! And it spins! :)

As for treats, Sadie will eat pretty much anything, but how cute are these?? Milk and cookies! Ha.

Did you already shop for your pets? I had to clear out some of Sadie's toys to make room for the new ones haha. She wasn't too happy about that, but hopefully she'll forgive me when she sees her new goodies!
