Ellie Discovers Santa

ELLIE:  Mr. Waffles??? Is that you?

WAFFLES:  Whaddya mean is it me? Of course, it's me. 

ELLIE:  So, you mean......are you........are you really.....SANTA???! 

WAFFLES:  Do I look like Santa?

ELLIE:  I've heard stories about you, I mean Santa. About a big, jolly, orange cat in a tight-fitting red coat. 


ELLIE:  And Santa brings toys and treats and stuff to all the good girl cats and boy cats.

WAFFLES:  Yup, and I've got a list and stuff. And I check it. Lots and lots of times. 

ELLIE:  List??

WAFFLES:  You know, the naughty & nice list.

ELLIE:  Am I on the list? 

WAFFLES:  Your name is Ellie, right?

ELLIE:  Yes!

WAFFLES:  You're on the list alright. 

ELLIE:  Which one, Mr. Santa Waffles?

WAFFLES:  I guess you'll just have to check your stocking on Christmas morning to find out!

About Today's Photos
It's Christmastime in the mountains! This weekend we strung the twinkle lights, hung the stockings, and dusted off our holiday attire. Ellie is pretty perceptive given this is her first Christmas. Waffles' Santa coat DOES look a couple of sizes smaller than we remember. LOL!

Today's holiday photoshoot had Glogirly wrangling Ellie and Waffles with treats and wand toys while Gloman snapped away with his camera. Waffles was posing like a pro and Ellie did a great job following his lead.

The REAL Santa will be sliding down our chimney this Christmas Eve and we're pretty sure he'll have some toys in his bag for Ellie and Waffles. Surely they've landed at the top of his nice list.

Please join us back here Christmas Day for a special edition holiday blog post! 

In the meantime, Happy Christmas week!

  5. Made me smile a lt, Waffles and Ellie.

  6. Someone must have put Waffles' Santa suit 8n the dryer and it shrunk

  7. Looks like Waffles may need to turn on the treadmill if he wants to fit in the Santa suit. But we think he is Purrfect. And Ellie! You are getting so big! We can’t wait to see what Santa brings to the mountain house!

  8. Mom says her clothes are starting to fit like Waffle's Santa suit!!! Maybe hers shrunk too?

    The Florida Furkids

  9. Best have a canister of oxygen on hand for when Santa shows all are pretty high up in the mountains...Hahahahaha!
    Waffles, you look could you not? And Ellie, what a cutie you are.

  10. Waffles, you do look cute in your snug fitting Santa suit. It is nice of you to explain everything to Ellie.

  11. LOL That last photo of Waffles made me laugh.

  12. That coat *is* a little snug, Waffles. Just sayin'. ;) Happy Christmas!

  13. From the mouths of kits, that suit is a little tight Mr. Waffles - MOL! Happy Holidays everyone, the photos are wonderful.

  14. *snicker* Tight coat? HAH! Can't wait for a bonus look at Ellie and the Waff-man on Christmas.

  15. You make a great Santa Waffles and I know Ellie is on the nice list. :)

  16. Two things!

    1) TIGHT FITTING * Tears of laughter *

    2) I see Katie there still. Choked me up, that girl was one in a zillion.

    Have a Merry Christmas!

  17. So I haven't checked in for a while and this is the first I have seen Ellie..How Precious!..You look like you fit right in sweet girl...May you have a wonderful life with Waffles, Glogirly and Gloman!!!

  18. You've grown so much Elliegirl! Waffles, blame the tight-fitting Santa suit on the closet gnomes. They're notorious for shrinking clothes when we're not paying attention.

  19. Your Christmas is going to be so much fun,xx Speedy

  20. Santa Waffles is looking very, um, Santa like MOL. Great photos of our two friends. Go Waffles and Go Ellie

  21. this was just too precious!!! I lmao about "tight fitting", Waffles isn't the only one with tight fitting garments this year! I'm right with him! xoxo

  22. I see Ellie found Miss Katie's red collar for the holiday. Yeah, Waff, you might want to lay off the holly-day goodies for a bit.

  23. So cute. We bet Waffles and Ellie are BOTH on Santa's nice list. :)

  24. I can't wait to see you on Christmas day! Merry first Christmas Ellie ❤🎁🎄 Yes Waffles, it's time to ask Santa's helpers to make you a new Santa coat! Lol! You are still so scrumptious handsome boy!! Oh it's so nice to see Katie's stocking and Waffles is checking inside for her. I'm sure there will be lots of goodies in there! Be patient Waffles!
