Our First Christmas on Red Head

There's nothing quite like Christmas to make a place feel like home. This was Dylan and Dee Dee's first Christmas on Red Head. It wasn't until Christmas Eve that the kids remembered they had to be good for Santa. More of an issue for Dee Dee than Dylan...

The crew watched a recording of the Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols at King's College. Dee Dee was enthralled. The only dog we've had that can actually sit and watch a 2 hour show.

Dylan watched too, in his own way.

Then came Christmas morning! Mom and Dad were not sure how Santa landed on our steel roof without waking the kids. But even more surprising was he left presents for Dylan and Dee Dee! He must have gotten his naughty and nice list mixed up...

Dee Dee was having a hard time waiting. She figured she'd better hurry before that fat guy discovered his mistake and came back for the presents.

Mom and Dad just wanted to enjoy some coffee in peace, so Mom selected a toy for them to unwrap.

It was a stuffed piggy pull toy. We think they liked it but you can be the judge.

They played and play for about a half hour.

Until Dee Dee eviscerated the poor pig and pulled all the stuffing out.

Dylan wants to make sure that Santa knows he had nothing to do with it.

As the morning went on there were other toys. There was a Flat Cat.

And a huge "indestructible" pull toy. Time will tell.

Mom got a great coffee mug from the ultimate Dog Mom, JoDee. She loves it!

And it is the perfect match to the mug Mom got Dad for his birthday.

There were lots of great presents and food and drink. And just like most two-legged kids, Dee Dee liked the boxes best.

When it was over the salon was a mess. Just the way we like it...

The crew on Red Head wishes everyone a very happy holiday and safe travels. We hope to see you in the New Year.
