Make-up Monday

We had such a wonderful Thanksgiving and so much turkey that we have been stuffed and snoozing for several days now. So it is time for us to try to make up for lost time and get a post done.

You may have noticed that we have a new look today - thanks to the ZH from Zoolatry, we have taken on a holiday glow. It is just amazing to us that the ZH finds the time to do so much for so many of us, despite all that is going on at Zoolatry - mega hugs to her from us - she is what we call a wonderful friend.

Speaking of wonderful friends, we have been overwhelmed to receive so many special awards over the past week. Even though we have seen these awards on lots of your blogs too, they are still very special to us - thanks to all who shared them with us.

We received this one from Ginger Jasper who said
"this lovely award sums up the spirit of blogging friends so well. I need to pass it on and keep the blessing going..." It is such a very meaningful award - we love it. And then in one of our comments, Jake and Fergi wrote: "We are so glad you came into our blogging lives. Your friendship is a real gift. Would you PLEASE go grab the You're a Blessing award from our blog? We really really want you to have it." Jake, Fergi, and Ginger Jasper, we thank you so much for sharing with us.

Our next award came from Daisy.

The award was created by the Purple Hatter. And according to the Purple Hatter here are the rules:



We received this next award from both Ginger Jasper (such a generous sweet kitty) and Dennis the Vizsla (a good furiend who is always so good about sharing his awards). And this was a quadruple winner for us as our lovely KC neighbor Twix and the sweet Piappies gave it to us also. Thanks, GJ, Dennis, Twix, and all the Piappies too.

Our last award is so meaningful at this time of the year when we have all been thinking and thanking for all of our furiends around the world, some who have been sick or suffering from the loss of a special pet. It came to us from Sweet and Sassy Sasha.

Here are the rules:
1. Publish it on your blog, referring the friend who passed it on to you.
2. Share 5 things you like to do.
3. Pass it along to keep the circle growing.

Five things we like to do:

1. Go for walks, long ones.
2. Take lots of naps.
3. Eat special treats.
4. Visit our furiends' blogs.
5. Do zoomies in the house to drive the Momster crazy.

Thanks, Sasha, we cherish your friendship with us.

Wow, that's a lot of awards. There were some rules here and there, but since so many of you already have received these and since we don't like rules anyway, we would like to share all of these awards with our loyal furiends. Please feel free to take and display proudly on your blog.

We had a great slideshow in our sidebar of all our awards. The slideshow was done through Bubbleshare. But for some reason, Bubbleshare popped its bubble and is no longer available. If any of you have a way to display your awards other than just a long list in the sidebar, please let us know. We need something to keep the Momster busy so she stops using the flashy box.

Here she goes again:

We have heard stinkin' rumors of a christmas photo while our sissie is here. We are not happy.


Petey said...

We're so happy you received the Blessings award that we created! Imagine how the world might change if every being on it knew they were a blessing to someone. That's why we added the rule to pass it along to five others by name. Somehow a blessing is more meaningful when there is an actual named being attached to it!

You look wonderful by the tree! We won't get ours for at least another week...

Your pal,

Something is wrong with that last picture. Two Sibes in the room. Christmas tree still standing. Oh, yeah, that's it. Do we get the after picture?

TwoSpecialWires said...

We think the Chrismtas holiday is fitting for you. Especially if it's a WHITE Christmas. (We'll cross our paws)

Congratulations on the awards. You are very deserving, and it's nice to see so many bloggers who agree!

First for the new beautiful look of your blog!
Then, for all you awards! Well deserved!
My mom uses Picasa. You create an album that you can put in your sidebar.
Kisses and hugs

Steve, Kat, & Wilbur said...

That is an especially great picture of Phantom by the tree! Your tree is lovely. Can you believe we've never had a Christmas tree? Mom says that Wilbur broke too many ornaments for his first Christmas so she's afraid to see what two Sibes added to the mix would do.

Your new look is really festive!


Twix said...

Congratulations on your awards, boys! You guys are Sibe Stars! I, like everyone else, love your new Christmas design. But I love that photo of you boys next to the tree better. Phantom even looks happy to have his picture taken! Have a great week!
PS: We use Slide for our awards is easy enough for Mom to figure out on her own ;o)

Tweedles -- that's me said...

Congratulations on all your awards! You certainly deserve them all!
We love your festive banner and bloggie site!
It is beautiful.
And we love the picture of you two by your beautiful tree!

The pic of you two by the tree is so cute! I love Phantom's huge smile! :)
