A Dedication

I am dedicating my first post of 2011 to my boyfriend, Barney. I received the nicest presents for Christmas from him and his family and want to share my photos with you. I wanted to do this during December but the mom let the time get away from her. She has said better late than never and I say never be late. But what am I to do?


My present arrived way in time for me to open and post before Christmas but oh no the mom made me wait and wait to open it. I kept wondering what was inside of the package and I kept trying to figure out how to open it up without the mom's help but my little paws just didn't do the trick.


. . . all good things come to those that wait and I was more than happy when the mystery box was opened and I could get inside for a look see . . .


. . . to my surprise the first thing I saw was sweet Hugo's sister! Barney knew how much I enjoyed having Hugo come and visit and also knew that I wanted a silbing to live with me. He made arrangements and Hugo's sister is now here with me and my other sister, MIMIme, furever. I have another sister and I have named her Violet . . .


In my Christmas box was also a beautiful Christmas card with Barney and all of his siblings photos on the front of the card. I also got a tin full of yummy treats, a little stuffed toy that I can throw up in the air, and his mommie made a bell wreath that I can share with my mommie . . .


. . . my mommie always likes to get a shot of all my presents after I have opened them but I would not cooperate with her. I kept turning my head and looking away from the camera . . . we needed to come to some kind of agreement to make me pose for her and the camera . . . after all she made me wait to open things so I thought I could keep her waiting . . .


. . . everyone has a price and I am no exception. I let her figure out that if I could have some yummy treats out of my tin I would be more than happy to model for her. She took the lid off of the tin and let me serve myself three times before she covered it back up. I took a few minutes to clean the crumbs off of my whiskers then . . .


. . . ta da . . . final photo done!

Sending a special thank you to Barney, his siblings, and his folks for thinking of me for Christmas and sending me such lovely gifts! You are the bestest of the best!!

ps: EVERYONE: Violet is wearing a heart necklace and it "Barney Loves Gracie"!!!! Isn't that just too purrrfect!!!!!!!

Hi Gracie! I have missed getting to see you so much - mom is so mad at her work and I am very busy trying to cheer her up when she is home - I am glad you waited to post about your pressies because at least that way I am not as late to come by!!

I am so happy you like your pressies and I hope that you and Minnie Me both like having Violet there - and I hope you like the special message on her necklace (I also hope you like that your toy says cute kitty - I have a matching one too - so if we play with them at the same time it is like we are playing together!!)

Smooches!!!

Barney
