After several years of having a hefty supply of Christmas cards, and not needing to buy any for the next year, this year we used up everything. There is a store near our house called Papyrus that has truly lovely cards and wrapping paper, which usually has prices to match. But of course, after Christmas, they are marked 50% off, making them affordable. And they disappear really quickly. So since I was off today, I decided I would walk over and get some cards. I found some really nice ones, but I also found these:
Due to my inability to take detailed photos, you can't really see the detail that meant I *had* to buy them - they are knit, and in a cable pattern! And since they were on sale, I got both of them for the price of one (which is also why I wasn't able to leave one of them behind ...)
I named them Rudy (the pup) and Reiny (the reindeer). They seem pretty pleased to be here, and have been getting lots of kitty rubs, as well as being sniffed but left alone buy Dug.
*****On an unrelated note, today would be my parents' 72nd wedding anniversary. They got married on this date because my dad was in the Army, and being sent to El Paso, Texas. At the time, you couldn't get married during Advent in the Catholic Church, so December 26th was the soonest after it was over that a wedding could happen. Please join The Tim and I in raising a glass to them tonight.
That's it for now, but I'll post again soon about our Christmas Day festivities. I hope yours was as wonderful as ours was!
