Dog Party

We threw a spontaneous hot chocolate party this afternoon. We tidied the house, made a pot of yummy vegetable soup and laid out some reindeer cookies and a small cake before our guests arrived. Annie and I put on festive dresses and decided to go across the street and invite some of our elderly neighbors to share some holiday cheer with us. When we got home Jasper (our large shaggy dog) had eaten all the reindeer cookies and the whole cake! Ak!

Oh well! At least he had some holiday cheer.

The party was fine, there was plenty to enjoy. The photo above shows the small ornaments I made for our guests. Each one depicts one of our canaries.

Your lucky guests, filled with good soup and walking home with a memorable, original ornament. Also, Yeah Jasper! You must have forgotten to invite him.

Oh, that is some dog. I hope he didn't get sick.

What a nice party and beautiful ornaments. I am inspired by the elegant simplicity of the party.

Merry Christmas!
