|I decided to help Lady open her gifts! My grandparents were watching by Skype. I got to see my cousins, Casey and Pepper, open their presents. The cat, Beau, his in a gift bag! Teddy didn't make an appearance.|
|Oops! The tree fell over! I didn't do it!|
|No worries -we have our Jesus tree we put in its place!|
|Christmas gift-opening aftermath! I love my new Bobo! It squeaks!|
Christmas Eve, for the second year in a row, we hosted the kids from the Children's Home and the staff. I was a very good host. These kids love me. I stay with them when Lady goes out of town, so they are like family. They came at 3:30 and the last ones left at almost 9:00 pm! Best of all, Lady ordered chicken chow mein and cheese pizzas for them (among other things). I got CHICKEN!!! I'm Chinese-of course I eat noodles! Lady shared about the True meaning of Christmas and how to keep it going. We played games and sang songs. Lady let the kids go into Secret Santa's Shop and choose presents to give away. Then, they decorated the paper and wrapped the gifts. Then, Lady and I gave out gifts to everyone. She even let me open another one! I got a new Santa! Finally, we lit the advent candles and sang "Silent Night." I was one fat, pooped pup by the time they left! After I got into bed, I didn't move all night! Here are some photos from our Christmas Eve celebration:
|When I opened the door, the kids sang Christmas Carols to me!|
This baby is Nobel. She LOVES me! Her parents cook for the children and help take care of them.
I'm helping with the JESUS Bingo game.
Lady wants to keep this girl! She is wrapping gifts she chose in Secret Santa Shop.
Satiya wraps gifts he chose. He's one of my favorites. In all, twenty-three kids came.
I'm under the table waiting for the food to inevitably drop.
Indians eat with their paws, er, hands.
With thirty-five humans eating, there were lots of drops! Lady fixed me my own plate of chicken chow mien and cheese pizza.
