It's Christmas Time in the City!

Wow. Okay, so I still don't know a whole lot about this Christmas thing, but from what I've seen and been told so far, I think I'm gonna like it. Mommy says this is actually my second Christmas, but I don't remember the last one, so it's all new to me.

First, Mommy put up our Christmas tree. It's covered in lights and beads and all these really neat colored balls and other "ornaments." I, of course, immediately wanted to pull them off and inspect them closer, but Mommy wasn't having any of that. She told me the tree is "just for looking at, don't touch!" I still try to sneak things off the tree when I think she's not looking.

Then, Mommy and Daddy put up more lights all over the inside and the outside of the house. It looks so pretty. I've seen other houses with pretty lights on them, too. I think this is how people get Santa to notice their house so he is sure to come bring them presents on Christmas Eve.

Oooh, oooh! That brings me to my next point! I actually got to meet Santa last weekend!! And some elves and some reindeer, too! Check out the pics...

I pet a reindeer. He didn't move at all, just stood there and let me pet him and pull on his antlers:

Then, we found a little elf. He wasn't much taller than me and I think we kind of look alike, what with my rosy cheeks and snazzy green jacket:

Then, it was on to the big guy. They had to take 2 pictures, since I put my hand up in my face for the first one. I was losing my patience by the time they took the second pic though:

Mommy and me also made some Christmas cookies yesterday for Daddy's office, but we didn't get any pictures of that. But, Mommy let me play with some of the cookie dough (which I promptly ate) and then let me taste some of the cookies when they were done! Yum!

Mommy says Christmas is still 10 days away, but I can't wait to see what Santa brings me!!

Happy Holidays!

Mommy's Little CEO

The day before Thanksgiving, Mommy had to take me to her office for part of the morning. I love going to the office with Mommy because there is so much to get in to. Mommy says she can't get anything done while I'm there, but she sure does a lot making sure I don't touch anything or play with all the cool stuff!

Mommy had to go into a meeting while I was there and I got to come, too! While Mommy and her co-worker were talking with their boss, I wandered around and looked for something to play with. I also made a poo while they were talking. Mommy noticed, I could tell because of the way she was looking at me when I poo'd. Then, her boss must have smelled it because he asked her if I had pooped. Mommy turned bright red and tried not to laugh.

After the meeting was over, Mommy changed my diaper right there in her office. She said that was the best place to do it, since the bathroom doesn't have a diaper changing station. Then she let me help her with some of her work.

Here are a couple of pics from my hard day at the office:

Here's some of my "paperwork" (Mommy says she thinks it looks a bit like a whale):

This "work" thing doesn't seem as hard as Mommy and Daddy make it out to be...
