Figaro still insists on going out, but doesn't stay there for long. He refused to sit still for mom to take a picture because it was so damp and muddy. He was on his way back to the house where he got his muddy paws wiped down.

A Festivus for the rest of us! Welcome to "Ginger's First Annual Festivus Celebration". Traditionally, this holiday is celebrated on December 23rd, but because my mom wouldn't let me, I had to wait. Sigh. For those of you unfamiliar with the holiday or the TV show "Seinfeld" (I watch reruns 'cause I'm MUCH too young to remember it from when it originally aired...here is a link about Festivus to help get you up to speed.
I'm rather proud of it! It's low maintenance and is in opposition to our highly decorated Christmas Tree...which ::cough:: Nigel has permanently parked himself under and WON'T leave. ::rolls eyes::
The next essential of the Fesitvus holiday is the "The Airing of Grievances". I've got lots of them. Cory and Ellie are a bit shocked as I begin my speech, but I'm saying it anyway. I'm Ginger after all.
Here are my grievances (in no particular order):
I'm hissed off because I'm supposed to get blog time EVERY Tuesday no matter what and those darn Tuxie siblings of mine keep taking over. What's a Tuesday Tabby supposed to think?
I'm hissed off because mom and dad have had time off, therefore breakfast has been running at least 2 hours late EVERY morning this past week.
I'm hissed off because Cory and Ellie...ok and all my other fur siblings are trying to claim all the toys for themselves.
I'm hissed off because it's been raining and dreary and this is seriously decreasing my yard and deck time. There are no dry places to sit outside.
And...(proving I do have a big heart) I'm hissed off because there are still way too many homeless kitties in the world still searching for their forever homes.
There...I feel better now.
Now on to the last portion of our celebration, "The Feats of Strength". The head of our family gets to test her strength against one participant of her choosing. I don't think there is any question that Ellie is the ruler of the roost, and she chose Figaro! Festivus is not considered over until the head of the family has been pinned to the ground.

We had such a pawsome Christmas! Hope you did too. We get up early, but wait until the sun comes up before we get our claws in the packages.
Grete put her mouth around her new ball toy that she got from Tommy.
What can we say about me and feather dangly toys. I love them almost as much as I love socks!
Mom revealed one of my most prized toys. Along with my whappable toys from Japan, mom brought out my very own individually wrapped piece of Tillamook cheddar. ::swoon::
Grete and Bennette and Ellie rested with mom after the presents were opened.
Then we told Grete there was one more gift under the tree from us kitties. We pooled our nip money to get Grete woofie her very own ornament for the tree.

Twas the night before Christmas, and all through the house
Not a creature was stirring, not even....
Bennette is snug on Ellie's hairy blankie...
Ginger is dreaming of cream puffs and Fui
Jonesie is dreaming of her garden and tools
And sweet Cory dreams of socks, Tillamook cheddar cheese and Whitey.
May all of your holiday dreams come true.
