giant lamb chop returns

during the christmas festivities, i'm not sure what happened, but all of a sudden giant lamb chop attacked bailey!

bailey, little though she may be, attacked right back!

and in the end, just as david fought goliath, little bailey took on giant lamb chop and won!

on a lighter note, it was so nice to have aoife back home, even if it was only for a couple of days. (i think giant lamb chop learned her lesson with bailey and didn't give aoife any trouble)

until we meet again my friends, be safe tonight, and we'll see you next year!!!

the elf on the shelf - and bailey

if you know the story of the elf on the shelf, then you know that every morning you will find them in a different place. i had told bailey that wherever we found them, that's where we would take a picture. we made a game out of it and every morning bailey had so much fun running from room to room looking for them. of course she knew not to touch them or they would lose their magic, so she was really careful around them.

chihuahua kisses

well, another christmas has come and gone (sad face) but we had a lovely day surrounded by family (happy face). it's rare that my parents and my daughters are all together under the same roof, at the same time, but that is exactly what happened this year - and it was wonderful. our home was full of love and laughter, good food and chihuahuas! what more could a person ask for.
i hope your christmas was as merry and bright as ours was.

chihuahua kisses - best. gift. ever.

gift exchange unboxing

can you believe the size of this box? it is from our gift exchange buddy, coccolino, a mini pig living in new york. we've never received a gift from a pig before, but i must say, pigs are very good gifters.

in the giant box, we found a giant bag!

in the bag, we found lots of goodies! coccolino's mom is very crafty and made the bed and a couple of "bailey wipes." yes, you read that right. she actually made the bed!

bailey being her silly self.

i'm pretty sure this is supposed to be a collar, but bailey is so tiny, she can wear it as a skirt! BOL

thank you sooo much for the box of goodies, coccolino! everything is pawsome.

(i am adding this post to the monday mischief blog hop because we opened bailey's christmas gift well before christmas. BOL)

el nutcracker mexicano

i collect steinbach nutcrackers and every year i try to add a new one to my collection. this year i found one that reminded me of bailey. olé!

"hola señor"

did you know? according to german folklore, nutcrackers were given as keepsakes to bring good luck to your family and protect your home. the legend says that a nutcracker represents power and strength and serves like a trusty watch dog guarding your family from evil spirits and danger. a fierce protector, the nutcracker bares its teeth to the evil spirits and serves as the traditional messenger of good luck and goodwill.

strawberry shortcake: daughter #1
care bear: daughter #2
mexican doll: BAILEY

bailey and the giant lamb chop

i know this giant lamb chop is made more for a 100# rottweiler than a 4# chihuahua, but she was so adorable, how could i resist her?

and bailey enjoyed playing on her, so it's all good.

"how do you like my giant lamb chop?"

bailey, a shredding machine?

bailey was a little shredding machine yesterday. she found a paper towel and she shred it to pieces. she thought it was the best toy ever. she had so much fun shredding it, and i had so much fun watching her, that i just might will probably drop them for her from time to time.
