Happy New Year and first 2010 post

Happy New Year to one and all. May 2010 bring us all love, laughter, good health, fabulous wealth, peace and all our dreams come true. It has been a while since my last blog update. My, oh, my, I haven't posted since last year! But then I have been home on vacation and my computer hasn't been well. But I'm back and have lots and lots to show. So I figured I would do one post today and more tomorrow.
So here are the highlights of Rory's first Christmas.

Rory with all his Christmas goodies. The BIG bone was his favorite.















Rosie checking out her stocking of catnip mice and other toys.
We have to hide them from Rory as he loves her toys too.
















Rosie loves the large dog bed and makes good use of it whenever she can.
Even though Rory is now 70 pounds he still thinks he is a lap dog. Well, I don't mind. So he did try out the laps of my nephew, Nick, and nieces, Terese and Sandy. And my dear friend and fellow stitcher, Mare, had both Rory and Rosie join her.








I did have a few stitching finishes and some new starts but more about that tomorrow.I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas. I'm off now to try and catch up with some of the blogs. I'm sure that will take a couple of days.

Until next time.............

Love and stitches

Kathy

and licks from Rory too.

Glad you, Rory and Rosie had a good Christmas. Can see that Rory likes his lap time, he is a little large for that. LOL

A very happy new year to you, Rory and Rosie! You have such beautiful pets, and they are obviously well behaving, regarding what wonderful gifts they received!

All I can say is, it is so sad that you treat Rory and Rosie so poorly. I can tell you don't like either of them much! I always love to read your blog; Rory is such a ham!

BUT, I will have to be careful that our fur babies don't get a look at your blog or they will want to move in with you! We spoil them, but not nearly as well as you do!

Wonderful pictures, Kathy! I especially love the last one of Rory sleeping - just like a child who has played hard all day and then just crashes!
