Food, pressies and poop on the carpet!

So Christmas Eve is over for now. Mom's been working a lot this Christmas, but she got to be home for the important stuff. We were at Grandma's and that's very convenient because all we have to do is go upstairs!

We always have reindeer roast for Christmas. Yes - some people find it a bit bizarre to have Rudolp for dinner on CHRISTMAS. We promise we let him deliver the pressies first. It's not very common for Christmas dinner in Norway, at least not apart from up north where the Sami live with their reindeer.
Then the yummy, yummy "riskrem" (literally meaning rice cream) for dessert.
Nothing left for us. Nothing! Can you believe it?
What? I'm not ALLOWED up on the table? But I'm the talles of us, who else is able to get the yummies for us? Huh? (That's Mom's band aid on the table.. I tried to eat that too, but she didn't even give me that. Bah.. Humbug..)
My auntie blow me on the nose! I just love - love - LOVE that so much. Then Grandma got mad at me for attempting to get onto the table again.. Sigh.. Humans..

Then we opened pressies and went to bed. Mom had to go to work like really, really early on Christmas Day (she had to be at work at 6.30am) so she went to bed earlier than most kids last night and so did we. She was rather boring, actually, and said she could open all dog-presents later because she didn't want to give us anything edible then. Can you believe it? Christmas.. not much fun.. (Apart from all humans on the floor so we could kiss and cuddle and step all over them making sure their nice clothes got plenty of hair in them!)

Hope you all have a ggggggreat day today!

Haha.. Sorry... We almost forgot. Nimbus pooped on the carpet during dinner. Now there's a classy move. Grandma was grateful he chose the one carpet she hadn't washed specifically for Christmas. Mom seemed slightly annoyed. Can't see the problem - it's not like he hasn't done it before!

Hi, friends.
No food and no presents?? Sure it was not fun! I hope the humans had a great time! My grandma says that deer is yummy!
Too bad your mom had to work that early!
Have a good night

I am sorry you did not get any dinner. Lucky and I got steak. (Prime rib, actually) And I got lots of broccoli. Yum!


Suki Sumo said...

Good move, Nimbus! I like your style. :)
Not sure about reindeer roast though! We might feel bad about eating them on Christmas especially!

Ferndoggle said...

Oh my that reindeer roast looks good! I think Nimbus pooped on the carpet as a distraction so Coco & Bajas could jump on the table & steal it.

Sorry it didn't work.

Hi Wrigglebutts
Thanks for calling by my blog. Your dessert looks yummie. Hoomans are a worry. We have our mum wrapped right around our paw though we still haven't opened our Christmas presents yet. Mum is waiting in hope that my brother, Beau comes home before the end of 2007, so we can't deny her this, and our mum gives us presents all the time. What matters is what we do with each other every day of the year. We like our Christmas tree though.
Love from Hammer

Hey, Kiddos!

Sounds like a very laid back Christmas Day for you. Sorry your mama had to go to work so early. I can see why that would dampen your Christmas.

Nimbus, my sissy, Stella, LOVES it whenever someone blows right in her face too! She's a nut!

Goober love,
