Behold! It's the Family Christmas Card! Yup, Mom has worked her Photoshop magic and created another dandy of a greeting that is being sent in all of our Christmas cards. That's the beautiful Miss Binks on the left and that handsome bunn snorgling next to her is me ;) Then we have wee Louise right in the middle, followed by Ana Banana and Scooter MaGoo on the right.
Mom is one of those people who loves Christmas so much, she put the tree up in November. Like, the second weekend of November. And she was late this year. She had gone out to the garage to pull out the Christmas tree and discovered that some mice had been living in it. All of the pine cones were chewed down to nubs and there were peanut skins, seeds and tiny poops all through the branches. She shook her fist, "You darned mice! You have ruined my beautiful tree!" So that postponed the putting up of the tree until she got a new one.
Christmas lights in the window, festive garland on the fireplace mantle, boughs and bows outside with more lights - it's all done. And there is the festive addition of a leg lamp in our living room window. One of Mom's favourite movies is "A Christmas Story" and she has always dreamed of having her very own leg lamp to display in the window every Christmas. This year, her dream came true, thanks to kijiji. If you have never seen "A Christmas Story" then this leg lamp will just confuse you. Go watch the movie and get back to me....
I hope Santa Paws remembers what a good little bunny I have been this year. Apart from a few poo-flinging incidents, none of which I was ever convicted of, I've been an angel of a rabbit. And it's not like I want a lot of things for Christmas. Us bunnies, we have it pretty good and there is not much that we don't already have, but there is always room in my belly for more treats. Oh yeah, more treats!
I don't care what kind they are. Carrot Slims, Veggie Puffs, raisins, hay cupcakes, I'll take it! Miss Binks' favourite treat is dried persimmon. Hopefully Mom remembered to order those from the Bunspace Store. And oat groats. I hope there are oat groats in my stocking!
Other that dreaming of what I want Santa Paws to bring me, I wanted to extend the best of Christmas and Holiday wishes to all of my peeps out there. Recent tragic events in Connecticut have made even the most cheerful of bunnies very sad, and it is a reminder that life is precious. Love everyone around you, spread cheer and give hope, and live every day to it's fullest. You only get to live your life once, so make sure to pack it full of love, happiness and optimism. I will share with you Mom's favourite quote, one that she tries to live by every single day....
I expect to pass through this world but once. Any good, therefore, that I can do or any kindness I can show to any fellow creature, let me do it now. Let me not defer or neglect it for I shall not pass this way again. ~ Stephen Grellet
Smooches and snorgles to you all, and to all, a good night.
