Recap of All the Holiday Visiting So Far

We told you we'd catch you up a bit on what happened after mommy and daddy got back from Ar-E-Zon-A, well after they got back they had Christmas at our house with Mommy's mommy's side of the family (see group shot below). I, Ollie, was quite the social butterfly and got some good snuggles in with Pop Pop. Mr. Chen wasn't quite so socialable but he did come downstairs occassionally to visit.

I also licked Uncle Jerry's buzz cut! When Daddy had a buzz cut, I licked his head too but since it's grown back in, I don't lick it anymore. It was nice to taste Uncle Jerrry's head flavor this time! Yummie!

Here is a photo below of mommy's daddy's side of the family at Christmas in Ar-E-Zon-A. We didn't get to fly out there (and that's ok with us) but mommy let us post these photos from their trip. Unfortunately, Mommy's grandpop went into the hospital on her birthday while they were out there visiting. Thankfully, he did get out the night before they left to come home but they did get some good visiting in with him and the rest of the family even in the hospital. In Ar-E-Zon-A, mommy and daddy got to spend some great times with our woofie cousin named Bandit. Bandit is a very sweet woofie who likes to play fetch in the house with her stuffed slipper and other toys. Mommy says that having Bandit around helped them to not miss us as much... Hrmph. We guess that's a good thing. Maybe you just shouldn't go away anymore, mommy, ok?

Then, mommy got sick again and everything kind of went back to our normal routine, thank goodness (not that we wish you were sick mommy...). Now, it's just ending a cold spell here in Philadelphia so we are enjoying any extra time cuddled up with mommy and daddy's in bed or the sofa.

We had nice visits but we're real happy it's back to business as usual again! Believe it or not, Mommy and Daddy still aren't caught up on their holiday visiting. They still have to see our Poppy and Nan (Daddy's side of the family) and Aunt Pat and Caely and Colin. And, they need to visit with their godbeans and best friends in Downingtown. Hopefully, they will see these friends and family soon! And, then the holidays can REALLY be over...
