T'is the Season

Christmas is fast approaching and, if you follow this blog, you know what that means:


I grabbed my antlers and cell phone and headed out to con/ bribe entice my beloved animals into cooperating for the camera.

Irish was, as always resigned.

Irish: is it that time again? Did you bring treats? I don't perform for free you know. 

Irish: What do you mean I'm too close? I have to get the cookies before Princess Greedy Guts take them all. 

Irish: This is the best you're going to get. 
Me: I'll take it! 

Carmen: I heard that there were cookies. 

Carmen: Back up? Why would I do that? The cookies are here. 

Carmen: Okay, I'll trust you but make it fast. Also, don't give any to the dog behind me. 

Guinness:  What? No. It's beneath my dignity as head of security. 

Guinness: Mom, this is so dumb. I'll be laughed out of the Farm Dogs Guild. 

Guinness:  I'm only doing it because I love you. But promise me it won't be on the internet. 

Ripley: I'm a guest. I'm pretty sure that makes me exempt. 

Ripley:  This is not my idea of fun. I can't even look at you right now. I'm telling Dad. 

Ripley: Well I guess I look pretty good. 

Willow:  this is new. I think it' brings out my eyes. 

Willow: Make it quick. My patience is fading fast. 

I know it's silly. But when I look back on the previous cards I smile at the fond memories of my beloved animals. Many of whom are not here anymore. At least not physically anyway.

Merry Christmas from all of us at Oakfield Farm. I hope you have the holiday you want.


  1. Poor Guinness:) Merry Christmas to all of you.

    1. He will survive. We can't be serious all the time!

  2. HAHAHAHHA!!!! Love it! Merry Christmas to you and all your loved ones.

  3. I just love everything about this! Great photos! And I agree, I love looking back on them from year to year. This year was so very different for me without my two best boys. But I kept them on the card for one last year.

    1. Yes, I have done that as well. I miss my dogs so much.

  4. omgosh yesssss i love this!!! haha, esp the puppers and their indignant faces <3 <3 <3

  5. Carmen looks like she's smiling in hers! <3
