Mewsic Monday

Hi everyone! We are joining Comedy Plus’ Awww….Mondays and Mewsic Moves Me (hosted by Curious as a Cathy,Xmas Dolly, JAmerican Spice and Stacy Uncorked.) The mewsic theme for the entire month of December is Christmas music so we will be participating every week.

This week, I have some of my favorite singers and their Christmas songs. One is not famous, but she sure should be. If you follow Dezi’s World, you already know their mom has an amazing voice. If not, here is her version of Silent Night.

Next up is Frank Sinatra- I’ll Be Home for Christmas

Rob Thomas- New York Christmas

 

Amy Grant- Grown Up Christmas List-

Joanie traded in her tutu for a nurse uniform. Hubby and I both have colds thanks to The Great One. I gave her some honey cold medicine the other day and she said she liked it because it is bee flavored 🙂 Kids say the cutest things.

Sunday Selfies- Letters to Santa Part Three

Hi everyone! We are joining The Cat on My Head’s Sunday Selfie Blog Hop.

Joanie wrote: Dear Santa, I would like a container of Temptations. Don’t be cheap, I want the 30 oz. size. Love + kisses, Joanie

Gremmie wrote: Dear Santa,  I need a gift for my mommy, Joanie, her takes good care of me. XO Gremmie PS: I would like a midnight snack too.

Trouble wrote: Dear Santa, I can explain. I didn’t know I was supposed to be good for you to bring me resents. I will be good from now until Christmas. Love, Trouble

Polar Bear wrote: Dear Santa, I was wondering what you do with your surplus reindeer. I love venison, just saying. XO Polar Bear

Noel wrote: Dear Santa, Do I get twice as many treats because I have a Christmas name? I should! Love, Noel

That was it for  our letters. We hope Santa is good to you all. We will let you know on December 26th if Santa was good to us.

Friendly Fill-Ins Week 135

Here are the Friendly Fill-Ins. Please leave your link (at bottom of post) here or at my co-host’s Four-Legged Furballs. You can also answer in the comment section. Thank you to all who participate. I am hoping the lunky shows up, but WordPress changed the format for posts this week and I am still having a hard time figuring it out. If I don’t have a linky, my co-host will.

1. I really need to ___________________.
2. My favorite Christmas ( or Hanukkah) decoration is __________________________.

3. It’s beginning to look a lot like _________.
4. This time of year, I eat my fair share of _________.

My answers:

  1. I really need to finish Christmas shopping so I am not running around at the last minute.
  2. My favorite Christmas decoration is some lights from my childhood. They were missing for years, but I found them in the attic when we sold the house in 2003. (see photo below).
  3. It’s beginning to look a lot like Santa’s workshop in my dining room. That is where I put all the gifts waiting to be wrapped . I also get all my mailings ready in there.
  4. This time of year, I eat my fair share of sugar cookies. I love the ones sold at Barnes and Noble and they keep giving out coupons for buy one get one free so I keep buying them.

Joanie will be presenting The Nutcracker on Saturday. This is a photo from last year.

We are also joining Create With Joy’s Friendship Friday and Feline Friday currently hosted by Comedy Plus.


Thankful Thursday

Hi everyone! We are joining Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop.

Joanie is thankful that The Great One did not have her dress up in any costumes. She was too busy making these ornaments (close your eyes Grammie).


Here is our poem for Sammy’s Poetry Day based on this photo:



Crowds of people everwhere

buying clothes, toys and footwear.

Everyone wants to find a sale,

wrap that gift and get it in the mail.

All that is good and fine,

but let us not forget the divine.

Here are the Friendly Fill-Ins for tomorrow. Mom came up with the first two and our co-host, Lorianne of Four-Legged Furballs came up with second two.



1. I really need to ___________________.
2. My favorite Christmas ( or Hanukkah) decoration is __________________________.

3. It’s beginning to look a lot like _________.
4. This time of year, I eat my fair share of _________.

Hi everyone! Poor Penny is having her post pushed off to next week because I want to tell you about this Holiday Goody Box in time for you to get one for your kitty.


*Disclaimer- we received the Goody Box Holiday for Cats in exchange for a fair review. All opinions are our own.

This box was filled with all kinds of good stuff including: Weruva’s Slide’nServe Pate, Royal Canin Instinct packets, Comfort Zone Calming Cat Diffuser and refill, Calm Paws Calming Collar, Xtreme Catnip  and more.

The Great One was here when the box arrived so she decided Joanie should test something out.

She tried the Solid Gold Triple Layer Cups Turkey and Pumpkin. She loved it! And even let Prancie try it.

All the cats loved the Xtreme Catnip.  I let The Great One take some of the nip and toy balls home for her kitties.

Miss Pick, Emmy, has a new favorite- the Weruva Slide “N Serve. She wants to rewrite her letter to Santa to tell him she wants some of these.

To order your Goody Box, click here. They are on sale for $9.99 and they ship for free!  While your there, stock up because shipping is free with orders over $49. ( Remember the Goody Box ships free).

Mewsic Monday

Hi everyone! We are joining Comedy Plus’ Awww….Mondays and Mewsic Moves Me (hosted by Curious as a Cathy, Xmas Dolly, JAmerican Spice and Stacy Uncorked.) The mewsic theme for the entire month of December is Christmas music so we will be participating every week.

I will start off with my all-time favorite Christmas song. Lou Monte’s Dominick the Donkey. I had never heard it until it was featured in the film, Riding in Cars with Boys ( Drew Barrymore).

And because it is Hanukkah and I love Adam Sandler ( not as much as Nicolas Cage though), here is The Hanukkah Song-

Joanie enjoyed another play date with The Great One. She has an Elsa dress almost like Elsa Bear.

Penny will be here with another tip for you tomorrow.

 

Friendly Fill-Ins Week 132

Hi everyone! Time for the Friendly Fill-Ins. Please leave your link (at bottom of post) here or at my co-host’s Four-Legged Furballs. You can also answer in the comment section. Thank you to all who participate.

1. Black Friday _________________________________.
 
2. A pet peeve of mine at this time of year is ___________________________.
3. ‘Tis the season for _________.
4. I never jumped on the _________ bandwagon.

My answers:

  1. Black Friday I will be out shopping with my mom. We go out about 7 AM, the crowds are gone by then.
  2. A pet peeve of mine this time of year is receiving Christmas cards that people don’t sign with love. We get cards from relatives that don’t sign love, just their names, no note. I figure if you are going to spend 50 cents on a stamp at least write a little note and spread the love. I drive my hubby crazy getting so mad about that, I even use HBO words sometimes.
  3. ‘Tis the season for Christmas music. I am breaking my cds out today.
  4. I never jumped on the cell phone bandwagon. I have a cheap cell phone that I use to call my hubby when I am off with my mom, but that is all.

We are also joining XMAS Dolly’s Show Off Tuesday! It is a blog hop with all giveaways, you should check it out.

#ChewyInfluencer

We have a Chewy review today. The perfect treat for your kitties for Thanksgiving dinner. Temptations Holiday Dinner Cat Treats are sure to be a hit.

*Disclaimer- we received Temptations Holiday Dinner Cat Treats, 16 oz. tub in exchange for a fair review. All opinions are our own.

Sammy loved them

 

 Trouble did too

And JoanieTrouble even tried to steal Brody’s portion. Everyone liked them, even KaTwo who rarely eats treats.

Temptations Holiday Dinner is turkey and sweet potato flavored. I am sure it is safer to give your cats these instead of some of your Thanksgiving dinner ( although my cats will probably score some turkey).  A 16 ounce tub is only $7.98 and shipping is free on orders over $49 so stock up. If you hurry, you can get some in time for Thanksgiving. Click here

We hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving!
