Madi: Friday "Christmas" Friend meet Howard

Good Christmas Afternoon to all my friends.
I hope each and everyone of you found exactly what you
wanted under your tree today. We all got up early here so the
our daughter and hubby could get on down to celebrate with her hubby's family.

So on to HOWARD aka Howie the Shiba Inu member of our family.

We started celebrating on 12/23 at my brother in law and sister in law's house.
Her children joined us there for a fine evening of fun, delicious food, and family.
My step-niece lives W.Va. We finally had a chance to meet her puppy, Howard.
What a cutie pie. He has so much personality it is hard to contain him. Everyone is
his friend and he has to smell every inch of you.
Look at his curly tail. Everyone had to rub his tail. It is a wonder it
wasn't straight when we left.

His coat is absolutely wonderful.
His mom is an English teacher. She told me he was named after
Howard, a strong willed character in Fountainhead.
Before she decided on the Shiba Inu she read alot about them.
They are strong willed and don't always strive to please their owners.
I guess he is alot like ther high school students...always testing their limits

His mom told me he rarely barks and look he has laser eyes just like Madi.

I received a digital picture frame from my daughter and son in law. I can see lots of
Diva pictures being down loaded in the future. There will be lessons on the care and use before they go home.
My son in law is a very talented wood turner. Every year we very excited to see what he made for everyone.
We'll post about those later with pictures. GORGEOUS!!! He is so good he could sale them but he says he won't give up his day job just yet.
Ok we're off to catch up on all the blogs.
It is raining buckets here in NC. Hubby, Madi and I are cozy inside.

Merry Christmas to all our friends

Merry Christmas Eve, Eve to one and all.
Oh boy does the house smell good. Mom has been cooking
up a storm. She likes for the house to smell good when my Sis (aka 1st family diva) and her hubby arrive so she bakes the day they are due.
ONE word of warning to all puppies and kitties.
for gets me every year!!!
Mom says, Madi come here for some Christmas cheer.
I go galloping over to my dish thinking oh boy I bet it is ham or turkey.
Nope it is orange, I don't eat orange food.
Mom says it is pumpkin.
It is good for your constitution. Well
that is a load of malarky Mom!!!

Since our company sleeps upstairs near the office,Mom and I will be MIA for a few days. We will catch up with everyone as soon as possible because we'll miss you.

We found this pretty candle arrangement we'd like to share with you all

our Blogger Friends and their Assistants you have all added joy to our lives

Madi: I've discovered when....

....something plays music
and wee people on it
start to magically ice skate
one should seek higher ground
to observe
from afar and of course turn on one's
laser eyes for protection

Yep Madi is afraid of this music box
when turned on it plays
"We wish you a Merry Christmas"
and the little people in the center
ice skate.
I guess Madi never claimed to be a brave Diva...just a

Madi: Last minute Christmas Shopping

Can we Talk?

Are you a procrastinator?

Have you finished your shopping?

Did you wait until the last minute?

Are all the stores and malls too crowded?

IF so, let me suggest you visit my little namesake below.

I've contracted with the owners to let all my friends shop 24/7 for the next 3 days

either in person or online.

My best serious Diva Look

As you can see by the title, it is all about Divas and their needs

Please stop by or visit on line at

(please click to enlarge for the full effect)

Isn't this too funny? Mom and Dad went to walk at the mall eerly this morning before the shoppers arrived. This was actually Mom's first trip to the mall since the Christmas rush started.

The flashy box was in the car so she ran out to get it so she could show everyone that

I have a store!!!

Mom: Our daughter's First Real Christmas

Technically this is her 2nd Christmas; however, since she was only 4 months
old on her first Chritmas we call this her First Real Christmas.
This picture is engraved in my mind forever. As you can see by this picture,
she was very surprised. Truly Christmas through the eyse of a child.
The next picture is what she was looking at that had her so excited
Note we had the Christmas Tree in her playpen to keep the inquisitive
hands of a 16 month old safe.
Thanks Madi for sharing the blog with your sister. After all, she is
the reason we adopted our first cat....hence the reason you are here.
