It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas!

......Everywhere you go.

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas....Toys in ev'ry store. Wow, so many toys. Me and Lacey got to choose a couple of toys and so did Margaret and Tansy and Hurley. Of course the 'girls' chose Barbies and sissy stuff like that...and Me and the other  boy (I sure do miss Dusty) chose action figures and trucks and macho things. The local Firemen here (yes they are all men, not like our Saturna Firefighters) collect toys for the kids of Tubac and area. We stopped a little boy and a little girl looking at all the toys in the aisles and asked them if the toys we had chosen were good for kids. We got two thumbs up from the kids and a weird look from the parents...that could have been because the four of us dogs were in ONE shopping cart barking instructions at Margaret!

But the prettiest sight to see is the Hot Pepper wreath that will be on your own front door. We had to exchange Holly for a hot pepper wreath. We like the red and and the red and even more green here. Red is a good colour.

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas;
Soon the bells will start,
And the thing that will make them ring is the carol that you sing
Right within your heart.

Margaret is putting us through an extensive carol-training course. We have a quite a few in our repertoire (love that word) and we will share them with you as December unfolds. We are waiting for the bells to start...we know they will because the carols are in our hearts.
