Finally Looking Like Christmas

Is anyone else feeling like Christmas is coming super fast and December is too short this year?  I know I am.  It probably has a little to do with how late Thanksgiving was this year.  To top it off, we usually put up our Christmas tree the Sunday after Thanksgiving, but since we were out of town for Thanksgiving we didn't get the tree up until last weekend.  I really love the tree this year.

I think I have a pretty great collection of ornaments now and I love sitting and looking at the tree with a cup of hot cocoa red wine each evening.  I really like the bow and curly cue thingies (yep, their technical name) I got for the top of the tree.

I love a whimsical tree.

Wags got a new collar over the weekend...a fancier red collar for the holidays.

You remember our foster pup Wags, right?  Her new collar was just in time for the talented Amy of BH Studios to pay her a visit with her camera.  Can you say ready for Christmas?

How cute is that?  In fact there were so many awesome pictures from that day that it's hard to choose the best one.

Wags modeled with her treat and train (awesome dog training invention, thank you Dr. Treat and Train).

She is so patient waiting for treats.  She actually rests between bites.

And just when you think things can't get cuter...

Double it!!

This is Wags very first time to be in a home, so it's this sweet girl's first Christmas.  She was a little confused by the tree at first.  She gave it a very cautious sniff, but now she is completely cool with it.  She did try to remove one of my ornaments from the tree, but since being corrected she has left it alone.  Good girl.

I wish I hadn't already had my Christmas cards printed or this would be it! 

In honor of Wags' first Christmas we hung her a stocking.

If you would like to meet Wags contact Red Collar Rescue at  Adoption papers would look fantastic in that stocking!

I hope you are enjoying every second of this short holiday season!!


  1. Oh.My.Word. The cuteness of those dogs together!! I just love dogs, and yours are precious. Your tree and mantle are so pretty. XOXO

  2. cute, sweet dogs! love the decorations!

  3. Ema, your tree is breathtakingly beautiful, and so is Wags. it breaks my heart that there are so many animals just like Wags who need a good home and a person or persons to love them, and so few answer the call. You are an angel for what you do.

    1. I know. It breaks my heart too! Thank you for your sweet words!! XOXO
