Merry, Merry! Happy, Happy!

ELLIE:  Mr. Waffles, did you know that this is my THIRD Christmas with you and Glogirly and Gloman?!

WAFFLES:  THREE?! I didn't even know you could count that high, Ellie. So you know what three means, right?

ELLIE:  Three? I don't know, Mr. Waffles. I thought it just meant, you know, three.

WAFFLES:  It means you're supposed to get me THREE presents. 

ELLIE:  But Mr. Waffles, Glogirly's been telling me that it's not about the presents. Or the the treats. Or the toys. 

WAFFLES:  Well yeah, it's about being with the people and cats you love and stuff. Your family. Your friends. But that doesn't mean there can't be presents. 

ELLIE:  But isn't me being here with you present enough? 

WAFFLES:  Well, sure...but I was king of thinking freeze dried salmon, feather wand toys, and catnip mice and stuff might be nice too.

ELLIE:  Mr. Waffles, as long as I have you, as long as I have Glogirly and Gloman, well...I have everything. 

WAFFLES:  That totally sounds like something Katie would have said. 

ELLIE:  You mean Katie, the Boss? Does that mean I get to be boss now?!

WAFFLES:  I love you too, Ellie. But I wouldn't push it. 

Merry, Merry! Happy, Happy!

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays everyone! This is our last blog post before Christmas so though it's a few days early, we want to wish you the most beautiful of holidays.

Thank you for letting us into your inboxes and hearts all these years. You're like family to us. And for us, that's what Christmas is all about. Family and friends and love. We also want to share our wishes with those that are alone this holiday season, missing someone they love, struggling, or sad. Please know that you are in our hearts and never alone.

Santa Paws and His List

ELLIE:  Mr. Waffles! I'm so excited for Santa Paws I can hardly wait!

WAFFLES:  Well are you sure you made the right list. 

ELLIE:  Well duh...I sent him a list of what I want like forever ago.

WAFFLES:  That's not the list I'm talking about, Ellie. 

ELLIE:  Huh? Whaddaya mean, Mr. Waffles?

WAFFLES:  What I mean is did are you on Santa's naughty or nice list.

ELLIE:  He keeps a LIST???

WAFFLES:  Yup. He sees you when you're sleeping. He knows when you're awake. He knows if you've been bad or good. 

ELLIE:  So YOU better be good, Mr. Waffles. For goodness sake!

WAFFLES:  Who, ME???

About Today's Photos

Ellie and Waffles know something is up, what with all the sparkly lights and ornaments. Oh, and Waffles incredible shrinking Santa suit. Waffles definitely manages to get into orange-mancat-mischief on a regular basis, but nothing that would ever land him on Santa's naughty list. And Ellie is the perfect little girl-cat. Not a naughty fur on her sweet head. Santa Paws, a.k.a. Glogirly (Waffles knows...but don't tell Ellie!) has a couple of surprises up her sleeve. It won't be long, but for now her lips are sealed!

Waffles and His Ever-Shrinking Santa Suit


WAFFLES:  So are you ready, Ellie??

ELLIE:  Ready for what, Mr. Waffles?

WAFFLES:  Well Glogirly put that Christmas collar on you, so that should be your first clue that she's getting ready for the big man in the red suit.

ELLIE: Don't you mean big CAT in the red suit?

WAFFKES:  Whaddya mean, BIG CAT in the red suit?

ELLIE:  I don't know, but your red suit is looking kind of...well...small-ish. 

WAFFLES:  It's not small-ish. I've been working out. 

ELLIE: kind of looks like your food dish has been working out, Mr. Waffles. 

We're Getting Ready!

Now that the Thanksgiving dust has settled, it's time to get ready for one of our favorite holidays. Glogirly's hanging our stockings with care and hanging the pretty glass ornaments way up high in the air. We're looking forward to a quiet Christmas in the mountains, but that doesn't mean we won't be making it look all sparkly. Glogirly remembers decorating the house for the holidays with her mom when she was young, so every time she pulls out the decorations from storage, it's a nostalgic trip back in time for her.

Ellie and Waffles are always happy to help!
