Christmas Presents!

Merry Christmas from Kelsey 

Can I open it. . . please?
Kelsey waited so patiently for permission to open her presents.
Once she knew what to do, she tore threw almost all her presents in a matter of minutes. . . with no help.

Such a smart little girl.

Zuke's treats, two PetStages toys, three squeaky light bulbs, a pink baby Kong, a beehive with bees, an adorable sweater 

and a fox for my little fox

Kelsey also got to go with her Grandma to visit Santa at Ufuria this year.  She was pretty tense while Santa was holding her, but this picture is so sweet.

My Christmas Dress


Kelsey's Christmas dress. . . a gift from her Grandma

Wow! Actually got one of her standing up. 

 showing off for the camera

You will be giving me a cookie for this. . .  right, Mom? 

 love this one

Did someone say cookies? 

 Doesn't she look so innocent?
I wrapped up one of her Christmas presents and she has been investigating it every day.  It contains no food items, but she knows it's hers.  I put it on the counter yesterday and she was looking all over for it today.

Not the best lighting here, 
but it was too funny to leave out. 

This is what happens when we run out of her Zuke's treats 
and have to use peanut butter instead.

Santa Baby

Kelsey is such a good girl about trying on hats.
She won't keep them on forever, but she will do it for pictures.

The hat is a little big because we picked it out for Tucker. . . 
but I couldn't resist getting some pics of her adorableness.

Kelsey is so putting on  her best sad puppy face here.  
She must be hoping Santa sees this one.


Could she possibly get any cuter?

LOVE this one!

The Unhappy Helper


 Uncle Simon came over to play with Kelsey the other day, so we tried to get some great Christmas pictures.  
Hope they bring a smile or laugh to your day.

Awww.  Doesn't he look so sweet and precious here.  
Take a good look, because that's all we are going to get.

 Simon obviously had to show me how bored he was by this.
Or, maybe he was laughing at how hard I was working to try and take his pictures.

Looks like Uncle Simon had one too many.
(obviously he really didn't)

We have a winner!
Absolute Best Ever "Evil Eyes" Award Winner
Somebody obviously is not into dressing up and modeling for pictures (like Kelsey).

My Little Turkey

 Kelsey had her own special Thanksgiving dinner.

Simon came over to feast with her.  
It took all his willpower to wait to eat. 

Mooommmm, she got more!

Kelsey displaying her infamous tongue.


 I don't eat much of the "Thanksgiving food," so Kelsey's grandma brought over some turkey, green beans, and a special gravy.
Thanks Grandma!

Party in 'Da Hood

 Okay, we saw this on a card and had to recreate it.  
Of course, Kelsey rocked this style.
Makes me smile every time I see it.

 She always has to sneak that little tongue into at least one picture.

 Kelsey was deciding whether or not she should pounce one of her favorite toys, a pumpkin.


 love how she is looking right at the camera

Pumpkin Party Pooper


 I am not getting any closer to this thing.

 Eeewwww! Do I have to touch it?

 I absolutely refuse to participate in this pumpkin thing, even if there is a cookie involved.  I am not going to look. I'm not going to look. . .

. . . well, maybe I'll take a quick peek for two cookies.

Finally got a decent picture out of her with a lot of cookie bribes.

 I still don't like these pumpkin things, Mom.
  
She did enjoy trying a bite of pumpkin.  It was apparently not good enough for her to get any closer to the pumpkins.  Her attitude about the pumpkins didn't get better after the pumpkins were carved.  Maybe next year we can get some better shots.

Spooky Witch

Please don't forget to vote for Kelsey on Facebook on the Pampered Puppy page.  We have until November 6th.  More information in the post previous to this one.

This year, Kelsey dressed up as a witch for Halloween.  I didn't think she would go for the hat; but, we had never tried it before.  

She wore the hat very well.  She always amazes me!

She looks a little nervous here, but I can assure you that she was very excited about pictures (and cookies).  I think she was just getting used to the hat moving around on her head.

This monkey always has to throw one in of her over-the-shoulder modeling pose.

Are we done Mom?
Kelsey greeted our trick-or-treaters again this year.  She actually let them pet her, although she wasn't a huge fan of it.  She was a little weary of a toddler in a dinosaur costume.  But, at her height, he probably looked like a monstrous dinosaur to her.  Most of our kids this year were pretty young and got a bigger kick out of seeing her than getting their candy.
