We're Enjoying The Magic A Little Longer

December 26, 2018

Good morning.  Tis a beautiful sunny day here in New England.  The temperature is 27F degrees, but it may warm up to around 37F degrees later this afternoon.  I've been watching "My Sister's Keeper" on TV. (For about the fourth time)  Next to me is a bag full of wet tissues.  This one is a real tear jerker.  It takes a lot of love and courage to let someone you love go. 

Well, Christmas Day has gone by, all the hustle and hub bub.  (how's that for some old time words?}  I have to say that Pogo and I had an awesome day.  We were spoiled wickedly, but we loved it.  Santa Claus brought Pogo a new doggie tent bed.  Pogo loves it!  He has a couple of his new toys inside it, and he spends a lot of time in it.  Sassy gave him the fuzzy green bone.

Does this look like one very happy little camper?  Pogo loves blankets, and Auntie Audrey made this one for him.  It has little Yorkies all over it.

Pogo and I had such fun opening all the wonderful presents.  With each one, he would get excited and sniff it all over.  Even the wrapping paper got a good checking over.  It's such fun watching my little guy.  The joy he gives me is an awesome gift.

Yesterday afternoon I called Deanne on my new Portal and I got to watch everyone opening their gifts.  The great grandchildren were there and they were such fun to watch.  It was wonderful blowing kisses with them.  This Portal was fascinating them as well as me.  This little machine is opening a whole new world for me.

I tried to take a couple of videos to share.  This is one of the cookie tins that DIL Janet brought me.  It was filled with home made cookies.  I love Thomas Kinkade art.  (and Janet's cookies!)

Janet also brings me an animated toy every Christmas.  This year it's a singing snowman.  Watch his mouth moving as he sings.  He's adorable.

Today I'm just going to do a few things around here and mostly relax.  Tomorrow I'll start putting some things away.  Not everything, but some things.  Pogo and I are going to enjoy this Christmas
magic a while longer. 

I'm going to call my cousin Ellen this afternoon.  If she's going to be staying at the convalescent place a while longer, I'm going to pay her a visit there this week.  I'll call ahead to see if it's okay to bring Pogo with me. 

The mail has come and I need to take some of it out to the house for the dwarfs. I'd like thank everyone for all the wonderful Christmas cards and blessings and gifts.  You really made yesterday special for Pogo and me.  So till tomorrow, Y'all have a fantabulous day.

Hugs, Edna B.

Pogo became part of his yorkie blanket. I had to look twice to tell it was him sitting there on the blanket and the little tent is so cute. My boy is a very lucky fur baby. He is so happy and know he is being loved by you and those who have never met him but only see his photos. Continue the joy as long as you can and keep smiling. You deserve it. Have a great after Christmas Wednesday.

Oh Edna,
What a great Christmas you and Pogo had! I am so happy that you were spoiled. You shall be spoiled a little more come January!
I love the Portal. I did not know what that was but how fun! I got a call from you that night but when I went to answer it, no one was there. I thought it was a fluke as it came on my phone with my Facebook app. Now I can see you whenever I want and you and Pogo are at home!
Going to read more of your blog... ttyl... love you both, Beth
