Merry Christmas 2011!

Posted on 12/25/11 68 Comments

Today I would like to take the time to give a shout of joy from my family to yours on Christmas day. Regardless if you join me in celebrating the birth of Christ today or whatever your custom, today gives us reason to spread the joy of the season to all. I hope your day is filled with great memories of Christmas’s past and of new customs for those you of you looking to create amazing memories for future Christmases.

May you day be a blessed one filled with love, if not surrounded by your human family then by your four footed family. John and I head down to my brothers for their traditional roast beef dinner (music to the Brit’s heart:)) with lots and lots of veggies for the vegan girl:) and lots of love and laughter for all.

I leave you with this Christmas smile as I send out a prayer to “Ethel” and to any of you who are starting a new tradition as you spend your first Christmas after the loss of a loved one in 2011. Peace on earth.

Today I am grateful for the love of family, friends and dogs this Christmas morning.

    Can’t miss this GOLDEN opportunity to wish you a Happy New Year from Pyper, Morgan & Harley.
    Snow fell gently most of Christmas day and the dogs enjoyed a romp and play outside with a few recaller games thrown in.

    Merry Christmas Susan and John, Encore, Feature, Buzz, Swagger, DeCaff, and your families and everyone at Say Yes. Thank you so much for all your help in 2011 and I look forward to soaking up more of your wisdom in 2012. I send my thoughts and prayers to you and everyone else who has lost someone special this year, including my Grandfather, Pat. It’s almost the end of Boxing Day evening here in North Queensland, Australia and although I am grateful to be surrounded by my family and particularly my girl Holly, I’d be happier in the snow in the beautiful Canada I love. Too hot! Best wishes and love and may God bless you all, Louise
