Will Santa Stop to Ask for Directions?

WAFFLES:  So Boss, how is Santa going to find us this year? Does he know we moved to Colorado? Maybe we should send an email with GPS coordinates to his elves or something. 

KATIE:  Or something.

WAFFLES:  Boss, this is serious!!! What if he gets lost? Will he stop at the gas station place and ask for directions?

KATIE:  Calm down, Waffles. He'll find us.

WAFFLES:  Are you SURE??? Like super-super-extra-double-sure?

KATIE:  I'm pretty sure he wants his red coat back.

About Today's Photos
We're getting ready for Christmas in the mountains! Decorating, gift wrapping and lots of Christmas photos! Glogirly had to make sure the movers didn't lose Waffles and Katie's holiday outfits so when she found them, she couldn't help herself.

We think Waffles actually likes wearing his Santa coat. It's styled like a harness and is very soft and fully adjustable. It came with an awesome Santa hat, though neither Waffles or Katie would call it 'awesome.' So we just use it like a prop.

Katie is thrilled her only holiday apparel she dons is a simple collar. Red velvet and oh, so glam.

Teenage Waffles and his Pre-Christmas Concert

From the 2015 archives - At only 3 years old, Waffles' singing career was already off to a robust start. Here is a sampling of his favorite chicken Christmas carols.

♫♩  Hark the hairy angels sing   ♫♩

♫♩  Glory to the new born chicken!    ♫♩
Peas on –

What? It's not chicken?  What about the angels? Are they hairy? No? Only some of them?
Ok, how about this one?

Jingle Bells

Katie Smells

The chicken laid an egg

Thanks, everybuddy. I'll be here all week.

Teenage Waffles
Today's photos remind us of how long, lean and scrappy Waffles was at 3 years-old. They say a cat goes through their teenage stage between 6 and 18 months. Well, Waffles pushed the envelope on that one. He's still got plenty of teenager in him. We suspect he always will.
Waffles today, pretending he's not really on the kitchen counter.

Spreadsheet for Santa

WAFFLES:  I'm ready for Santa, Boss. Emailed him my spreadsheet and everything.

KATIE:  Email? Spreadsheet?

WAFFLES:  Duh, Boss. Santa's gone digital, you know. I need to facetime him and make sure he has my list.

KATIE:  Waffles, I think you're overlooking what Christmas is all about. It's about giving, not receiving. 

WAFFLES:  I know, Boss. That's why I GAVE Santa my list.

Oh, Waffles

Despite the fact that Waffles has likely appeared on Santa's naughty list multiple times throughout the year, he scores points every single day with his happy personality and loving affection. 

Katie loves giving and receiving love too. She's just a little more ladylike about it. And prefers to do it without wearing a Santa coat.

In Search of the Warm Spot - Plus Mountain Scenes

WAFFLES:  What happened to the warm spot, Boss? What, is Mr. Sun on vacation? Did Daylight Savings steal all the daylight? One minute it's morning, the next it's bedtime. 

What, are we supposed to sleep all day?

KATIE:  Well we are cats. 

You ask a lot of questions, Waffles. Most of which make no sense at all, though some people might think there's something to your theory of daylight savings stealing a bunch of our daylight. The days will keep getting shorter until the winter solstice. 

WAFFLES:  Soul what? You mean like an R&B concert or something? Who's playing?

KATIE:  Do you even know what R&B stands for? 

WAFFLES:  Ribs and bacon?

Mmmmm....Warm Spot
When the sun goes into hiding or sets before we've eaten dinner, Katie and Waffles are quick to seek out the "warm spots" in the house. We're very fortunate to have radiant in-floor heat as our primary heat source. That means we have a network of tubes filled with hot water that run underneath our floors. It keeps our toes warm and is pure heaven for cats. 

In some areas of the house, typically where the tubes go around/into a corner or through a doorway, it's extra warm because those tubes get closer together than in the middle of a room and therefore emit more heat. Our heating and plumbing guy (who loves cats by the way, has a wife named Katie, and we call him the Boiler Whisperer) said that cats will instinctively seek out these warm spots. 

One of Katie's favorite spots (above) is right by the doorway to the bedroom. When she rolls over to be petted, her fur is so warm, it's like she's been laying on a heating pad.

The other primo warm spots are in the closet, underneath Glogirly's clothes. Occasionally Katie and Waffles can be seen mere inches apart, soaking up the warmth. 

Mountain Scenes
We thought you might like seeing a couple more photos from our Thanksgiving week with Gloman. As you can see, we still haven't gotten any major snowfall. But we're keeping our paws crossed for a white Christmas. 
Glogirly and Gloman spent some time exploring the dirt roads and trails in our canyon neighborhood. 

When Mr. Sun rose in the morning, he did so magnificently. The clouds looked like huge puffs of cotton candy.

Best Cat Daddy Ever - Scenes From our New Phone

During Gloman's Thanksgiving visit, he surprised us with the new iPhone 8. After untold hours at the Apple store, Glogirly was sporting her new big screen, enhanced camera, and soft pink case. She's been playing around with all the fun filters and settings. And in typical Glogirly style, she's been throwing in a little Photoshop pixie dust too, that is since the restaurant they visited in Idaho Springs, Colorado (above) doesn't allow handsome orange mancats or elegant tuxedo ladycats.

The above pic was taken with the new portrait setting which, if you can look past Katie and Waffles, creates a creamy, blurred background.

Katie's photo below was a quick snap in very low lighting while she and Glogirly were binging on Stranger Things on Netflix.

KATIE:  What? You think I need a new phone to look this beautiful? Think again.

Waffles was caught giving Glogirly makeup lessons in the bathroom. Something about mascara and guy-liner.  

WAFFLES:  Guy liner???
