Grateful, grateful!

This has been a tough year and it's been a little hard to be grateful for all that I have.

First, in March, we had a terrible event in the family that caused a lot of stress and anxiety amongst all of us; then in May, my father passed away from cancer; in June, we lost my niece's Westie Toby to cancer as well, and through it all I've been worried about Tucker's health.

But still when I think that all that I have, I am really lucky. I have a very nice home, a good job, my health, wonderful family and friends, and two wonderful furkids. I am able to enjoy playing agility, travelling, and other outings without having to wonder too much if I have enough money for it all. Beckett and Tucker make me happy even when I'm a little down.

We had a wonderful Christmas. Not too much snow. I spent Christmas Eve and Christmas Day at my sister's place with her family. It's nice to have them so close, their love and support is something for which I'm grateful. I hosted a dinner for them, my youngest sister and her daughter yesterday. I am grateful for the time we have together as those special memories will always be with us.

I'll spend New Year's Eve with family too and then on New Year's Day will fly out to see my mother and spend some of the holiday with her. Spend time with your parents whenever you can; it's probably the best gift you can give to them.

So even if life brings some hardships, I always try to remember that I am truly blessed, but I sure hope that 2012 will be a little less stressful.

Hope you all have a happy healthy New Year!!!

Presenting the Tree

My tree for Christmas 2011. The picture doesn't do it justice. I'm thinking maybe I should get some white pointsettias or some ribbon to fill it up a bit more.

Crisp mas is coming...

Hi everyone, is me Beckett. Ise ben reading Ludo's and Denny's, oops I mean Reilly's blogs. Weese ben getting reddy here for Crisp mas too. My Mums ben decorating all da rooms. I really dunno why but she puts up lots of lights and ornomints, she says to get into the spirit of Crisp mas. She says weese gonna get a tree in the house again too.

The family room is decorated with lots o snow mens. They is on the table and fir place mantle.  They is even on the wall ore the couch.

She put a wittle village in the live-in room, I dunno whyse we call it that cuz we don lives in it very much at all. And there's flowers around it called Pointsetters but I don think they'se much like setters at all.

Mums even put some decorations in da baffrooms, even in da one that no one uses, how funny is dat.

Mums says weese got to be good or Santa paws wont bring us our pressies, so Ise trying to be a good boy. Is hard to be good all the time cuz I still likes to emptee the garbage can in the baffrooms for Mums. I cant hardly wait for Santa paws to come, Ise allways gots good pressies from him. 

Denny, don you listen to ebery thins Reilly tells you about Santa paws. Tucker tells me fibs too, big brudders is like that sometimes, mostly tho they is nice to have around.

Good nights ebery one, be good or if you cant be good, be dog, haha thats a joke.

Luv, Beckett

Ssshh don't tell...

I bought the last of Beckett's Christmas gifts tonight: an Angry Birds squeaky toy and The AMAZING Dog Trick Kit.  I probably won't get around to teaching him the tricks but the kit has a flying disc in it. And we all know Beckett loves his Frisbees. Tucker and Beckett will also be getting new Christmas socks and lots of treats.
