A Million Diamonds

First, a flashback to Christmas 2003;
Blue getting ready to aggressively open his present.
It's a blue Christmas without you....
And now (with the spot on the other side)...
Is Annie in true JRT fashion...
ready to open her very first Christmas present.
Ta Da!

And what did I get....

A million diamonds.

Click to enlarge and just look at all the diamonds in the snow!!!

I hope you all have a Blessed Christmas too.

Ooops, blogger wiped out my comment. I'll try again. It looks like you have another generation of canine who is very capable at the present-opening game. Memories are great.

The snow picture is unbelievable. I've seen it, but have ever captured a whole expanse like that.

Wow! What a priceless and rare collection of diamonds you've been blessed with. Fabulous.

Have a wonderful 2008 with your beautiful Annie.

Since I live in the Valley, we didn't get much out of this snow. It's really pretty, but only about a inch plus. You have beautiful snow...love those diamonds.
Annie is having a wonderful time with her presents. I can tell that she fills your heart with Joy.
We had all the Grandchildren here Christmas eve and Mattie with the help of LB are still looking for goodies on the floor. Beagles love to eat, and will find things you can't see. They are like little vacum clearners.
Thank you for coming bye...Love, Mary

Cat it was so nice to see images of Blue whom I got to know from all your postings! I know we always hold our fur friends ~with wings~ close to us during the Christmas season..I had all my ~little wings~ with me hanging on the Christmas tree with wee stockings with their names on it... Casper. Ginger.Halo. and sweet Freddi. Paisley and Babie were there with them.
Blessings to you and your family dear friend! I am so happy that our paths have crossed while blogging our way across the miles. I look forward to another year viewing your artistic creations and hearing about your bike adventures!

Wow, I really envy you for your white winter wonderland on Christmas! I am as well glad to see that your little sweet Blue had a great time, too!

Now that the festive days are over, I am looking forward to some relaxing and creative hours. I hope I will finally be able to finish my new ribbon bulletin board!

Have a wonderful week-end, Cathy and all my best wishes for a healthy and happy New Year!

Hugs, Anita

I am trying to catch up on some of my dear blog friends and so glad I checked in on yours.
I have been moving during Christmas-what a Christmas to remember.
I am so glad you got the sweet little Annie. She is precious!!!
She won't take Blues place, but will fill the empty spot in your heart and his spirit will always be with you.
Hope you had a fun Christmas with your new furbabie. Tell her Lady says "woof woof".

So sorry about Blue. I too, am recovering from a loss so I know. I lost my Zoee(Cat) age 4 on Christmas Day. Two days later I had surgery so it's been a double whammy this year. I wish you the best and feel for what you've been through Cat.
fondly, Nancy
P.S. I love Annie

ahhhhh (sniFF) There he is...Sweet Old Blue. And dog paper...how cute is that ? He missed you too this year.

Annie looks darling. I love how you let them open their gifts ! I never did that with a dog ! how cute.
Of course they would KNOW there was a goodie in there and rip it open ! I love it.

Your blanket of diamonds is spectacular.

Merry Christmas. Stay warm. L/S
