On a VERY happy note, two years ago today our little Pixel came to live with us. He is a 4.9lb pure bred Yorkie. He was rescued from a puppy mill and had never been out of a cage in his 5 years of life. His fur was long and matted. Every touch from a human was terrifying for him. He didn't know how to run or jump off of anything. Now he hops up and down off the sofa and gallops everywhere. He's still a little nervous in new situations but is SO much better than when we got him. He absolutely adores my husband. Here are some Christmas pictures of him and of our pug/terrier mix, Tommy, and two of our precious grandchildren opening presents.
The picture below was taken a couple of weeks before Christmas when we were decorating the tree. I put Pixel in the hat and he didn't mind so I laid him on the sofa. He stayed in that hat for over an hour.
Our grandson is 2. He would very gently rip the paper off a present with encouragement. The minute he saw something in the package , he'd say " WOOK!" Our granddaughter, opened one present and disappeared. We wondered where she had gone. How many 4 year olds walk away from opening presents???? We called to her and discovered that she had gone back into the kitchen to snag another Sweet Roll. They are a delicious yeast roll I've been making for many years. They are loaded with butter and sugar so I only make them for special occasions. We have no idea how many she ate that day. She absolutely loved them. It made me so happy to see another grandchild enjoying a family tradition. Don't you think you'd love these rolls?
I hope your Christmas was filled with many blessings and was a little more calm than mine was!
