We know that the
First Day of Christmas
is traditionally
Boxing Day
or December 26th.

But since we got
to have
one of our Christmas pressies today,
We decided that today
is our First Day of Christmas.

Last night the temperature
stayed around 32 degrees F
and it rained all night.
This morning our driveway
was slick and muddy,
so we got to try out
one of our Christmas pressies.
Mom and Dad had got us raincoats!
Piper got to be the guinea pig
and try one on first -
he did OK until Mom snapped
the hood on it.

Carrleigh's raincoat is orange
and she likes it because
it makes her look thin.

When Lilly saw there was a red one,
of course it had to be hers-
that is after a 10 minute tussle
to get it on her!

And Piper got the manly
forest green one.

Even without the hood,
they kept us so much drier
and less muddier
that going out 'naked'.

And here they are
hanging up to dry.
Mom wonders why we waited
so long to get them.

Good news-
Our sissy, Kat, is arriving
at the airport tonight.
Dad has gone to pick her up
and we are helping Mom
make potroast and rolls
for dindin.
We are so excited -
she will be here for 2 1/2 weeks!!

Lilly, Piper, Carrleigh and Java

Very nice raincoats. We love the colors. They are a pain but they do keep us dry too. We hope momma never decides to buy us boots.
Stay dry

Very nice raincoats and you look so good in them. Mom must love that your undercarriage stays dry. You guys are looking sharp, but what about Java?

What a great idea for pressies - we love you all in your raincoats. The colors are just perfect too, especially the red one for Lilly - red looks so good against black.

Have a lot of fun with your sissy Kat. Our human brother will be home for the holidays too along with his wife and little boy. We will have six grandkids running around here and the parents too. Could be very interesting.

If those coats actually keep them less muddy then we'll be tempted to get some too.

tammy said...

What a great idea! And you all look so cute in them. Louie and Teddy may have to get one too. Let me know where to find them. They always get so wet on these rainy days.
You guys have fun with your sister and enjoy the holidays. Merry Christmas to you all, and Peace and Joy!
Teddy, Louie, Tammy

What adorable models all of you make. Carleigh looks so much like Oliver with the wet head. We had the same weather while we were in Georgia this weekend, and we were SO glad we didn't take the Scotties with this time! Welcome home, Kat.

Cheryl, Indiana, Shingo and Molly said...

Your raincoats are VERY snazzy!! We love all of the great colors!!

Woofs and Kisses!

Pee Ess: You should be getting your Christmas gift any day now!!

Where did your mom buy those raincoats? My mom makes me wear a "ghetto" raincoat (a plastic grocery bag with leg and head holes cut out and then tied on me!) and I HATE it! It makes a funny noise. If I've got to wear one, I'd like to have one like yours. Mom says I have to keep the transmission dry. Please let me know where my mom can buy one of these so the neighborhood cats don't laugh at me anymore!! XD

I just love the rain coats! The one I made did not have a hood. But it keep her dry and She would not go out if it was raining and she did not have her rain coat on.
Amanda LOVED her rain coat. Tell Kat Hi for us.
Bambi sends you guys tailwags,
I send you guys lots of good rubs, Fern
