For those of you who don't know this, I (Lily Belle) LOVE to open presents. If its got wrapping paper on it, I'm so there. If there's a gift bag on the ground, don't worry cuz I've got it covered. So believe me when I say the paper was a flying! I even opened up a prezzie from Nola, Boston, Auggie & Phee and chewed right through the packging in to the treats. Yup! I ate like 87 cookies before Mommy caught on to what I was doing. Darn that woman!!
Now sit back and relax cuz we're gonna show you the highlights of our day.....

Now this we gotta explain. Uncle Bob (mom's brother) sent us a last minute package. The box was huge. When we opened it up inside were 6 individual boxes. Each one labelled Box 1, Box 2, Box 3, etc. On Christmas morning Mommy was told to open them in order starting with Box 1. This is what was inside Box 1.
First it was a letter from Grandpa Bob! As you can see he is sending Mommy and Daddy on a vacation.
This is what accompanied the letter.
Box #2 contained another letter, this time from Uncle Bob, Aunt Cindy, Bobby & Colleen. They are sending Mommy and Daddy to the Everglades to go on an airboat tour.
Box #3 contained another letter from Grandpa sending them down to Key West.
Box #4 is a catamaran trip to Ft. Jefferson where mommy and Daddy will do some snorkeling in the crystal clear water. Compliments from Uncle Bob, Aunt Cindy, Bobby & Colleen.
Box #5 takes them to see the Sunset Celebration at Mallory Square. They will watch the sunset into the gulf of Mexico compliments of Grandpa Bob.
The final box which was from Grandpa Bob, (Box #6) heads them over to Miami Beach for the day before heading home the following day.
This is what it looks like when you stack them all together.
What a fun way to find your prezzies! Mommy and Daddy really appreciate all the hard work and effort that went into make all of these. And the best part is, Uncle Bob and Aunt Cindy are coming to Florida to stay with Grandpa and us while Mommy and Daddy go on this adventure.
Mommy said that will be interesting because Uncle Bob and Aunt Cindy are NOT dog people. Wait until they find out that we plan on sleeping in bed with them! Oh they will just poop their pants. Mommy's really nervous about the whole idea of leaving us behind with them.
A touching letter to Mommy from Uncle Bob. This is the first Christmas in 18 years that the family hasn't been all together for Christmas.
After hours of eating, opening gifts, running around like a bunch of crazy ninkempoops, this is what happens to little dog's like us.
Tomorrow we celebrate again because it's Muffin's 8th birthday!
