Christmas Card Outtakes

In getting the perfect Christmas card pictures....there is a very good chance that not all our pictures are Christmas worthy.
For every picture perfect pose ..... 
There is the "I don't want to wear my reindeer antlers!" picture
Just take the picture without me!
Three Smiling Doodles
might have begun with one Doodle Doggie getting ready to push his brother out of the shot. 
You don't need him in my picture!!!!!!  
That was a good one!!!! 
So let those Doodle Doggies taste the antlers because the very next shot 
Might just be perfect!
Tis the Season!

T'was the Day After the Day After Christmas

T'was the day after the day after Christmas and all through the house...
Not a doodle was stirring...
Not even a Mouser
The stockings were emptied and hung back up by the fire
And everyone was searching for a quilt to snuggle up on and retire
The doodles burrowed together on their beds
With visions of their Christmas gifts dancing in their heads...

We hope everyone's post Pawliday rest is Merry and
Blissfully full of oodles of doodles!

Happy Pawlidays!

Yesteryear Acres was in full Pawliday mode yesterday! I was honored to be the Christmas Cottage host for the family gathering. We had holiday pot roast, homemade rolls shaped like a wreath, and oodles and oodles of delicious desserts and treats. 
After our big meal it was time for quilt cuddles and present opening
I love having my house filled with everyone I love!
And as always, I couldn't leave out my little happy Always Amelia Clan of animals!! 
Merry Christmas Ernie!
You are such a good boy!!
And so are you my little Professor Maverick!
You can't have too many hedgehogs!
Merlin LOVED his first Pawliday celebration!
New toys and lots and lots of love
Happy Pawlidays from my clan to yours!!
