Happy Freaking New Year

whoopeeeee!  Is it here yet?  Can I go back to sleep?

Another year gone.  Where has it gone?  I don't know!

This year had it's ups and downs.  Mom got a job, that is an up.  She isn't happy, that is a down.  We miss her, that is a down.  She can buy us food, that is an up.  We miss her, that is a major downer!  and it stresses her, even more of a downer!

What is on tap for the next year?  Lots of things I bet!

  1.  lose weight.  Both Mom and I need to lose weight.  I am not happy about it and neither is Mom but we need to, we have to do it.  
  2. not kill heathens.  Yeah, that will be difficult.  I really am not thrilled with them.  Mom likes them so I better not do anything too mean to them.
  3. Sleep more!  cool, I got that one covered
  4. snuggle Mom.  oh yes, this is a good one.  I do it really well.  And I like to throw myself across Mom to make sure she stays in bed.
  5. not kill heathens.  this is important I guess.
those are all good goals I guess.

Mom says she is going to look for something different to do.  She still has those vibes.  Those damned vibes.

here I am in my skinnier days.  I look pretty darned good!  Mom still thinks I was younger than the mean doctor lady said.

And this is where Mom wants to get back to.  Lots of treadmill and elliptical time in the future for Mom for SURE!

Well, I hope everyone has a safe new years eve.  And I am going to work on my resolutions.  First up, snuggle Mom!

Merry Merry

The fat old guy arrived last night.  No, Mom has better taste than that.  I can tell you from first paw knowledge.  Anyway, Santa brought stuffs to us kitties last night.  I've not looked too much.  I keep hiding under the bed when Mom walks into the bedroom.  I am sure she wants me to come out and participate but I refuse.

There were lots of things for us.  The boys got to look first.

Louie got pushy and went right for the presents

Louie, catnip cigar.  Getting high.....

 Hermie got into it too
Robin got a big tub of catnip.  He thinks it is grand!

Robin loves the toys too

I'm still hiding in the bedroom.  I'll come out at dinner time.  I can smell the pork roast smells good.  Mom will have some mashed potatoes with sauerkraut and gravy, green beans cooked with some bacon too.  And that cherry gum gum stuff that her Mom used to make all the time.  Seems this is one of Mom's favorite meals.  It reminds her of Grandma and Grandpa.  She misses those holidays, when she was younger and when her parents were younger and still at home.  

Christmases were pretty fun back then.  Lots of love and laughter.  Still lots of love and laughter.  We all love Mom, she loves us...and we make her laugh  

Merry Christmas everyone!
Love and purrs,

It is almost Christmas!  I have no idea what it is but it sounds wonderful.  Lots of yummy foods, gifts, loved ones.  Wait, is it Christmas every day here?  Cause I get yummy foods, I have gifts and toys and I have loved ones and must be true, it is Christmas in our house all the time. 

And Mom is home for the weekend.  Even better.  She has 4 days off...2 down, 2 to go. 

And the bags from Santy Claws were all filled and Mom turned her back.  Yup, that is Louie, he got in one and took it away and LOVED it.  Silly boy.  Mom had to rehide the bags from prying paws. 

Everything is good in our house.   Mom is good, she has lots of friends and some who even love her (yea, that is silly but she does).  The heathens are doing good too.  For heathens.  Robin is gaining some weight, he needs to.  Hopefully the mean doctor lady will be happy next time she sees him.  Louie is very healthy and goofy.  I hate him but Mom likes him so that is good, I guess.  Hermie is perfect.  Perfectly heathen!  He makes Mom laugh with his antics.  And I am perfect.  I'm doing my best to make sure Mom gets rest.  I wouldn't let her out of bed yesterday.  I plopped down on top of her and wouldn't let her get up. 

ooooo, looks like the tabby heathens were fighting.  They better be careful, Santy Paws might not bring them anything....cause they are naughty. 

Wow.....I bet I am going to get lots of new toys cause the heathens are so on the naughty list.

OK, I need to sleep cause I want to be awake when Santy Claws shows up.  I bet he has special treats for good little kitties like me. 

Merry Christmas everyone, have a safe and enjoyable holiday.

Our Annual Holiday Video

Mom did the annual holiday video yesterday. 

Ellie and the Heathens 2011 Christmas Video (opens in a new window)

Since there are a few folks who cannot view videos, Mom said she would put the slides on here.  Pretend you are hearing the music from A Charlie Brown Christmas while viewing!

Yup, those are the pictures from our video this year.  Mom says that it makes her giggle.....she needs to giggle more.

I hope Santa brings Mom some happies. 

I'm going to be good now.  Not that I am not good all the time, I am.  Just right now I have to be extra good.  I want my goodness to help Mom out.  I have to make up for the heathen naughtiness.
