Adventures in Christmas Babysitting

No snow for us this Christmas.

The warm temperatures felt more like March than December.

Cousin Wrigley and the Grand-Peeps drove down from the north woods in Wisconsin to spend Christmas with us. 

While the peeps finished up last minute shopping, we took my sissy for a Christmas Eve walk to the park.

No explanation needed.

What's your hurry, sister?

We were NOT allowed on the playground and had to snoopervise from the sidewalk! 

Sleeping on the job ...babysitting is hard.

Special Note: My friend Tucker is trying to help a precious little dog named Scout get a second chance in life. Please check out his post for more information and a chance to win super cool prizes.

Pip, you are lucky to get to walk your little sissy. We haven't been able to walk Mom is such a long time. Uncle Wrigley is looking good. Looks like you two got all tuckered out from that walk.

We hope Scout is able to get the help he needs, we pitched in a little too.

What a great Christmas you had with friends and family! And how sweet of you to take your human sis for a walk!

Also, we really appreciate you spreading the word about Scout. This is a tough time of year for donations, I know, but I'm feeling a little discouraged! :(

Wha-? No dogs allowed on the playground?! Everybody knows that cats are the ones who pee in the sandbox!

I was babysitting the weekend before Christmas, and it really was exhausting! I feel for you, Pip!

It looks like you and Wrigley did a great job babysitting your little sister. I didn't have babysitters very often as a kid but the ones I did have, never took me out to the park! Hmph!

Sorry you couldn't play in the park. That's totally no fairs!

Trixie, Lily, and Sammy-Joe said...

It was weird not having any snow on Christmas, wasn't it? Mama says she doesn't want it to snow because she slips and slides all over when she takes us for walks. But we miss playing in it!

Marg said...
