Christmas Day

We got up at 6 today to open presents before church at 9:30. We all wore our matching jammies, that say Whistling Prairie on them. We didn't wear the pajamas to church, bu we did spend a good portion of the day in comfort. At noon we met with the Stake President to be with Amanda as she was set apart to be a missionary again. She is leaving tomorrow morning to return to her mission in Germany. We're going to miss her. This past three months together with Amanda has been all the more special, as it was so unanticipated, but full of so many meaningful events.

Coda got a new doggie bed, which she seemed happy about. She had outgrown her little puppy one, which had some pretty unsightly stains in it. Aunt Verlene sent Coda a toy that she fell in love with.  We were happy she was distracted from rooting through our goodies. Yesterday she ate 4 of the chocolate chip cookies that Kay had made for us! We think it wasn't enough to make her sick, but has definitely given her a taste for refined sugar! She was a naughty doggie, but she is so cute!

  1. Glad Coda liked her new toy. Brandy once ate 8 Hershey mini bars while Paul was in Oregon and I was working. I looked it up on the internet and discovered milk chocolate doesn't really have that much chocolate and unless your dog has tremors or really bad diarrhea you don't need to take her to the vet. I took Brandy to the dog park and she ran it off.
