Holiday Excitement

We just wanted to wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving.  Please remember tomorrow to think of all your blessings and to thank your Creator for all you have.  I know we will!  

This weekend a place called Christmas Village will be opening.  They were putting some finishing touches on it today but most of the windows in the little buildings were "blacked out" until the official opening on Saturday.  Saturday is a parade and then Santa will open his village. I need to talk to Santa because I need some toys.  I am almost out of toys because Stanley has eaten almost all of them - even Sneaky Snake!  And I USED to have a lot of toys! So we will fur sure be looking for Santa!
"Do you think Santa is here Stanley?"  "Nope", Stanley replied cooly, "I don't think so Murphy."

We didn't see him here either.  But, we kept looking.  Then Stanley got an idea. . . . 

"Hey Murphy, let's wait for Santa by his mailbox!  That way when he comes to pickup his mail we can tell him we need lots and lots of new toys!"

I kept a sharp eye out for Santa but did not see him.

Stanley watched for Santa too.  
We watched for Santa a long time and then our pawrents said it was time to go home.  They said it was too early for Santa and that he won't be around until after Thanksgiving.  We hated giving up but mom assured us this weekend would be exciting.  Since we NEVER had Thanksgiving or Christmas we are pretty excited!

Happy Thanksgiving Friends!!

Murphy & Stanley


  1. I gotta tell ya boys. As old as I am I have never been to Christmas Village. If ya see Santa Paws please tell him I have been pretty good this year. And if he can spare a toy or two for our friends in the shelter I would really appreciate it. Especially since those over 150 dogies that were just put there yesterday. I think they are going to need something special teo get them through this scary time.

  2. That's a pretty awesome place. I can't wait till you meet him over the weekend and you tell us how that goes! I am sure he knows how good you've been!

  3. Oh how awesome!! Does Santa actually live there??? Whoa, I say stalk him until you get a meeting!! ;-) Hehe! The village looks really cool, enjoy watching the parade too! Happy Thanksgiving guys!!

  4. Santa's with me! I will send him back your way soon. Happy Thanksgiving!

    Your pal, Pip

  5. DARN! those sneaky pawrents taking you away!
